What is the best brand for Casein Protein?



Is it bad for me? i’m 16. Are there any negative effects?

We are just about to start my daughter who has Autism on the Gluten/ Casein free diet. Is this a healthy diet? Should we also put our 1 year old son on it as well even if he does not have Autism?

    Phew. A couple questions there.

    1. What’s the best brand of casein?

    Well, you really should be going for a low-fat, low-carb Casein-Whey blend.

    When a group of 36 men with at least 6 weeks of weight-training experience were given a whey-casein mixture before their workouts, they built 50 percent more lean muscle mass over 10 weeks than men who took only whey. Casein slows down catabolism, a process in which your body breaks down muscle instead of fat for fuel. “When taken before a workout, casein may slow catabolism enough to help the body build more muscle,” says study author Richard Kreider, Ph.D.

    2. Is it safe?

    It’s just protein, which is a macronutrient like sugar or fat. Because it’s refined – much like table sugar or olive oil – it is concentrated so you can rack up calories quickly by consuming it. If you take it without working out or take too much, you’ll probably exceed your caloric requirements and gain fat.

    Always follow the supplementation instructions.

    autistic children are just like anyone else physically. Why do you need to put them on a special diet?
    A gluten free diet only applies to people suspected of celiac disease. Does he have this? Casein is only removed if he is allergic to it.
    Otherwise there is no special diet and you will only make him a fussy eater when he is older.

  4. Silva says:

    I know a few autistic children and none of them are on a special diet. I agree with the first answerer.
    I would google this a bit more if no one here is giving you the answers you require. Even better speak to a professional, or a naturopath.

    Autistic children are not just like anyone else physically and the diet is not only for celiac disease. I know many children with autism (as we prefer to say) who have had great benefits from this diet. Consult with a dr. and as always use your gut. I would put the little one on it. First of all if he is one, it is hard to know what signs he has. (as you know it is a spectrum disorder) I hope that it is wonderful for you. One little boy with autism I know has had autism removed from his IEP because his symptoms are so low now due to the diet. It is a lot of work , but you can do it Mom!!!!
    I am proud of you!

    If your child is not reacting to gluten, there is no need. For starters, it is an incredibly hard diet to follow (at least at first, until you get to know all the code words on the labeling and such). Secondly, not every child is going to have a positive reaction to going gluten-free (I’m not saying it will be a negative reaction, more like no reaction at all). Sure, there are some children with autism that do respond well to that diet, but there are many other additives, such as dyes, in food that could also be problematic for your child. Or not. Not all children with autism have sensitivies. If you are concerned, contact an allergist. They can test your child to see if she has any allergies/sensitivities. Just because it worked for Jenny McCarthy’s son, doesn’t mean it will work for everyone.

  7. Chairman Jell says:

    Am not sure why you want to do this.

    There is nothing wrong with gluten unless you happen to be a Coeliac sufferer. Many healthy foods contain gluten as do foods which children need to eat in order to develop body and bones.

    There is also a danger that if your child is deprived of gluten for a few years then eats it by accident they could become quite ill, even if just over night.

    If you think your child might have a gluten problem then by all means see your doctor.

    Otherwise, don’t worry about it.
