Whey Protein Question
Right now, I take Casein protein before I go to bed since it takes awhile to digest. Would it make sense to just take whey with a few tablespoons of flax oil instead of the Casein? The flax should slow down the digesting process of the whey I would think.
The reason I ask, Casein is twice as much money as whey is.

I would use the casien with flax before bed or egg whites and take a tbsp. of flax before bed also.

Stick withthe casien if you can, if all you can afford is whey than whey and flax is ok, but won't last as long as casien.

Does taking flax with whey protein, before bed, actually slow down its digestion rate?

No it does not. Just found that out a few days ago.

Lean meat and olive oil...works well for me...

I'll stick with the Caesin then if the flax doesn't do the trick with the whey. Just trying to save some kind of money if possible. Thanks for the replies.

I have personaly never noticed any gains difference betwen drinking a whey shake before beed or consuming a slow acting protein.
Theoreticaly(dont know how much impact this would have) raising the ph of the meal will slow down protein digestions since the main stomach digestive enzyme for protein is pepsin and it wont work unless the ph is very low. So consuming a anti acid along with the meal should slow down the protein digestion.
However the stomach plays a fairly small part in digesting protein so it might not be such a big delay.
