Pro JYM Ingredient Breakdown
A detailed breakdown of the ingredients in my premium blended protein powder, Pro JYM
Whey Protein: Fast Digesting Protein for Faster Anabolic Response
There are two major kinds of protein in milk, whether it be human, cow, goat, etc: Those two proteins are whey and casein. In cow’s milk, casein makes up the majority of the protein—about 80%. Whey makes up the remaining 20%. Whey protein is the soluble portion of milk protein. To visualize this, think of the liquid that sits on top of yogurt when you open a container of yogurt—that's whey protein.

Even More Benefits of Whey Protein
In addition to muscle growth, strength gains, and fat loss, whey also offers numerous health benefits. Whey has been found in clinical studies to increases levels of the powerful antioxidant, glutathione in the body, lower blood pressure, lower total and LDL, or bad cholesterol, and may even help to reduce the risk of certain cancers.

Casein Protein: Slow-Digesting Protein for Longer-Lasting Muscle Protein Synthesis
As explained above, milk protein is 20% whey protein and 80% casein protein. And you now know that whey is the fast-digesting protein of the two. Now, what about the micellar casein? That's the real slow component of Pro JYM.
How is Casein Protein Different from Whey?
Remember, what the research has now found is that using just whey alone is not the best way for muscle growth. Yes, whey is critical—those microfractions from whey are important; its fast digesting rate is important—but adding a very slow-digesting protein like micellar casein extends that metabolic effect from the protein powder and can help build more muscle growth; increase muscle protein synthesis, keep it elevated for longer. That's going to lead to greater muscle growth. It works very well.
What Kind of Casein Protein Does Pro JYM Contain?
But you need a real slow-digesting casein. When we talk about caseins in protein, I have micellar casein. You've probably seen caseinates—sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate—what's the difference between caseinates and micellar casein? It's a huge difference. I only use micellar casein.

If you had any questions about the sources of the protein in Pro JYM, I hope that answered them for you. You now know the source of each one, why I chose them, why they are the highest-quality protein that you can get on the market today, and why they're so beneficial to you.
