A protein with a low absorption rate is usually called a slow protein. To this type of protein is, above all, casein, which is a classic representative of slow proteins. So, a portion of casein is absorbed during 6-8 hours from the moment of acceptance.
Among a number of slow proteins, vegetable nutritional proteins, and in particular soy protein, should also be distinguished. Other types of proteins, which have a special matrix that retards enzymatic hydrolysis, are also referred to as "slow" ones.
Additional information: Complex proteins are often referred to as slow-acting proteins, as some components of the complex are proteins that are slowly digested.
The greatest benefit of slow proteins is in the work on weight reduction or in the drawing of the relief of muscles. Slow protein does not cause an insulin peak, as it is gradually absorbed for a long period of time. Proceeding from this, athletes prone to a set of excess weight, to replenish energy should take proteins, 50-80% of which are slow proteins. Also, slow proteins are great for drying muscles.
Dosage and timing of slow protein intake
Slow protein is taken before bedtime to give the muscles the necessary recharge of amino acids. In addition, slow proteins need to be taken if you know that it will take a long time before the next meal. Approximately 30 g of slow protein is sufficient to provide the body with amino acids, if before the next meal take 3-4 hours.
The schedule for taking the protein is the same as for the set of muscle mass. The principle of reception is the same, except that the portion of proteins should be reduced by half – according to 15. Also, the use of slow proteins can replace one or two meals.
