I’ve been using whey protein for years. I don’t particularly see/feel results from it, but mostly do it out of a ‘this is what you do’ type of thing.
I like it and it seems to be a good, low-calorie way of getting protein and feeling full.
However, a friend sent me a link to PES Select Protein recently and I decided to try it. Check out the site and read about the differences w/ casein…
Enter casein, a slower-digesting protein that’s typically consumed for its anti-catabolic properties as it promotes a steady release of amino acids over time. Casein actually results in more retention of ingested protein than whey!
In another published study, researchers found the combination of whey protein with casein protein resulted in a quick increase in protein synthesis along with a sustained elevation in plasma leucine levels . Plasma leucine levels are a key dictator of muscle protein synthesis, and thus, a combination of whey protein and casein protein may serve to maximize muscle protein accumulation.

It’s cheaper at Amazon.
I like the taste and it seems to make me feel full longer. As far as results, it’s really hard to say.
