    Proteins supplement usually a combination of whey and casein protein. Proteins provide critical amino acids that serve as building blocks for new muscle in the body. Whey and casein are different types of proteins that are both present in milk. When milk is coagulated, it automatically divides out the proteins into semi-solid lumps and a liquid portion. Casein is found in the lumps, or curds, whereas the whey protein is found in the liquid portion. The ratio of protein within a glass of milk is about 20% whey to 80% casein. These proteins differ in their rate of digestion as well as their amino acid profiles. Whey is digested more quickly by the body and may be most beneficial when consumed immediately after workouts. Casein is a slower-digesting protein that is used less efficiently by the body. Whey and casein protein are both valuable for muscle growth and repair..for more details click here..http://bodybuildingindia.com/whey-vs-casein/
