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 Recovery also 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 Protein Recovery 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.
