You don't need to buy those over priced slow release protein drinks. Milk and egg proteins are both slow releasing and are great before bed. I buy a milk/egg protein powder that I take before bed and it's pretty cheap. Before bed you want something that's going to take a long time to digest because it'll be hours before you can eat again. You want that steady flow of aminos in your body. Whey protein is not good for before bed, but it's great for post workout because it's such a quickly digested protein.

slow releasing protien mainly take longer to digest as other nutrients are present and your body has to break them down before digesting them.

this is one reaosn people prefer food protien over shakes as they take longer to digest, on the other hand not so good as a fisrt meal or after training when replenshing after a fast/or a lots been used peroid.

a protien article written in a similar way to paul stagg trianing articles. in that some people worry to much about minor issues and mis the big picture.

good article that cover a lot of protein question.

but it is long.

got 30 minutes to read it and take it in.
