100% GRASS FED CASEIN WITH 5-HTP
Hibernate combines 100% grass fed micellar casein with 5-HTP – a precursor to Serotonin. Serotonin is one of the most important brain chemicals for regulating our sleep and wake cycle. Hibernate not only helps with recovery and muscle building whilst you rest but also helps users have better sleep management. What?s more, Hibernate is also blended to be consumed as a delicious hot chocolate drink before bed.
SYNCRONISE YOUR SLEEP AND RECOVERY
HIBERNATE is designed to help keep your sleep and recovery in sync. Micellar casein is a slow digesting protein source, designed to stimulate protein synthesis throughout the night through a time-release of amino acids. This slow ?drip-feed? of amino acids assists with the promotion of muscle building whilst you have a deep and restful sleep.
HIBERNATE also contains the right amount of 5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan) which helps increase serotonin levels, naturally. Serotonin is also one of the most important brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) for regulating the sleep/wake cycle. Evidence shows serotonin may help influence sleep, maintain a normal mood, and support a healthy immune system.
CONTAINS MCTs FROM COCONUT OIL
HIBERNATE uses MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) derived from coconut oil. These shorter chain fatty acids help provide a healthy fuel source to organs and muscles. The greatest advantage to using MCTs is that they are less likely to get stored as fat; instead they are used efficiently by the body as fuel. MCTs offer huge benefits to the body due to their anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties.
AVOID CATABOLISM | 22G PROTEIN PER SERVING
Anyone who takes their fitness seriously will be familiar with whey protein powder, an easily digested supplement that quickly provides the body with a readily accessible source of bio-available amino acids. This works well through the day but as the whey protein is quickly absorbed and used up, how do you continue to provide the nutrition your body needs and avoid catabolism while you are sleeping? This is where micellar casein can help, providing protein in a slow release form, gently being digested as the body recovers naturally, and providing a steady flow of amino acids through the night, when most muscle growth and repair takes place.
Insomnia is a debilitating condition that is known to increase with both age and stress levels. Not surprisingly, these factors also affect the production of serotonin. The results of insomnia can lead to a general impairment of faculties, a drop in the effectiveness of the immune system, depressed mood and an increase in levels of anxiety. 5-HTP will boost the levels of serotonin, which in itself aids restful sleep, while at the same time easing the other symptoms. This two pronged approach helps to break the cycle whereby a lack of sleep leads to a general increase of symptoms that make restful sleep less likely. The supplement helps to re-establish healthy sleep patterns which aid overall recovery.

We don’t like providing unwanted calories to a person’s diet and reduced sweetener is better for promoting healthy gut flora. We’re proud to be able to say HIBERNATE casein contains just 0.01% sucralose. Not convinced on the benefits of this product?
