Consume protein before sleeping, a crucial piece of advice given by Amir Hossein Manzouri, sports physiologist and international fitness trainer
Most proteins are consumed at three main meals of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while during nights, there are few proteins for recovering body. Is it beneficial to have one extra protein meal before going to bed? Our studies indicate that having a protein meal before sleeping improves muscle recovery. According to our investigations, 40 grams of protein are needed before sleep for muscle protein synthesis that is relatively high, probably due to the length of nights that is greater than the time gap between meals. We lack the knowledge of how important is each kind of protein. For our survey, we have used Micellar casein protein, and we expect no considerable discrepancies between other types of proteins. But pay attention to the amounts of calories your body gets. In conclusion, consuming a protein meal before going to sleep improves muscle protein synthesis.
