Protein Recovery is the ultimate drink for after exercise and the Pro’s choice. The whey isolate used in Protein Recovery is a high quality source of protein. Protein contributes to muscle growth and maintenance. Protein Recoveryalso contains carbohydrate. After exercise, your muscles are often low in glycogen (carbohydrate). Consuming carbohydrates contributes to recovery of normal muscle function after strenuous exercise.
Protein Recovery gives similar benefits to 4:1 EnergySource, but there are a number of key differences. Protein Recovery has a higher protein content. It can also be mixed with milk or water, whereas 4:1 EnergySource can only be mixed with water. Some sports drinks can be acidic. Protein Recovery mixed with cold milk is neutral and it can make a pleasant change, especially if you are training hard for many hours a day.
The whey protein isolate in ProteinRecovery is the very highest quality. The Food & Agricultural Organisation have an internationally recognised method to compare the quality of various proteins. This is known as the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS). An ideal protein will have a PDCAAS score of 1.0. The protein used in Protein Recovery has an even higher score of 1.14. It’s also high in Leucine.

Post-Race Nutrition – BRONZE award
“It tastes really good and with 19.5g of protein there is absolutely no unpleasant protein tang with this one. 4/5.”
PT Magazine, December 2013
“The roughly 2:1 ratio of carbs to protein provides a great way to help your tired body recover, especially if consumed soon after a session.”
Triathlete Europe, February 2011
“I threw one sachet into the recommended amount of water and shook the bottle for 30 secs. That was all it took for the powder to mix and I could slug it down quickly without choking on any lumps. It tasted like a proper chocolate shake and brought me back to the land of the living having done a gut-churning difficult fitness session. So I had another one.”
