    Whey is a fast-absorption protein source, taken in and utilized quicker than protein from other sources like meat and eggs. This is why whey makes for a great post-workout supplement- it gets amino acids to your muscle quickly and coupled with healthy carbs can get and keep you in an anabolic, muscle-building state. Casein protein does the exact opposite- it's a slow-absorption protein that feeds your muscle tissue over the course of several (6-8) hours- ideal for a pre-bedtime supplement.
