This smoothie has over 20g of naturally occurring protein i.e. no added supplemental protein. The predominate proteins are casein and whey. The combination of these two proteins allow for slower digestion and absorption, resulting in sustained elevations of blood amino acid concentrations. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are essential for cellular recovery and repair.
