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).
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.

Have gone through many different brands and types of protein recovery sources and this is by far the best I have found. Now after using it for two years I'm still not sick of it unlike many others that were ok for a while but I couldn't stomach after a month or two. Does what it says, pleasant flavours (Chocolate is my favourite with milk or water) and helps me recover after my longer rides and runs !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoggy1711 Taste brilliant, reduce soreness in legs
First thing: the banana and vanilla sachets taste brilliant. Mix with milk, and it tastes like a banana and vanilla milkshake, always welcome at the end of a tough ride.
It helps reduce the soreness in the legs after a particularly hard ride. Without these, I'm sore for the next couple of days, but with these, I feel fine on the second day.
I take them in the hour after finishing a ride, you can take an extra one before going to sleep later that evening, which may further reduce soreness and be useful for a multi-day event - however, as I am just training atm these allow one day hard one day recovery etc.
Definitely recommended, they are brilliant

I used to feel pretty knackered after our Sunday 50-mile rides, not anymore. Not sure whether it's down to this product or to my improving fitness, but the stuff certainly tastes good. If no milk is available, diluting with water also works fine.
At the very least it buys me time to get home and take a shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finger67 Efficace e pratico
Vale tutto quello che ho scritto sul Protein Recovery in barattolo (il prodotto é ovviamente lo stesso), efficacissimo nel favorire il recupero muscolare, il migliore tra quelli che ho provato nel suo genere, con in piú la praticitá di poter portarsi dietro una dose ed assumerla appena terminata la sessione sportiva, per la massima efficacia.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Banana flavour
I purchased this recovery powder mainly because it can be mixed with water and not milk. Unfortunately CRC's site does not state that the Banana flavour is not intended to be mixed with water.
I've had the chocolate flavour before and it's good tasting.

This is a great tasting recovery drink (particularly Banana/Vanilla flavour). The sachets are really useful when you are going away for a day or two and you don't want to carry a bulky tub around with you.
