Different proteins have unique optimal usage occasions, when they can do the most good, and multivitamins can help your body make better use of all those nutrients.
- 100% Gold Standard Whey: First Thing AM, Pre- and/or Post-Workout
- 100% Gold Standard Casein: Between Meals & Before Bed
- Opti-Men Multivitamin: With Meals
Fast-acting whey protein first thing in the morning helps put your body in an anabolic environment after 8 to 10 hours without nutrition. Whey can provide anti-catabolic support to limit the extent of muscle breakdown when enjoyed pre-workout. After training, whey helps kick-start muscle recovery and rebuilding.*
Casein digests much more slowly, making it ideal for times when muscle-supporting proteins won't be available for a while. Right before bed, casein provides sustained amino acid support at a time when the majority of muscle rebuilding takes place.

Slow Digesting, Anti-Catabolic Casein Protein
Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable directly before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day and night time.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other protein sources. Because of their unique time-released traits, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

Vitamins & Essential Minerals
Optimum Nutrition's Opti-Men combines Vitamins and Essential Minerals with an all-inclusive array of herbs and other ingredients specifically designed for males. Multivitamin and mineral supplements are perhaps the most important single supplement that can be consumed by bodybuilders and athletes. For the human body to function at its maximum potential, it must be fed a vast and complex array of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in just one of these essential vitamins or minerals breaks down the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance declines -- not good! Daily consumption of a high-potency multivitamin/multimineral formula may help ensure the presence of essential cofactors necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions.*
