"This recovery protein is incredible. I use it after gym & hockey session. The difference this stuff makes is awesome." - Anton
Recovery Protein from Protein Works has been designed to be the most complete recovery shake on the market today. It’s been scientifically engineered to enhance the entire recovery process immediately following training. It does this through a variety of different mechanisms due to both its impressive macronutrient profile and content of proven active ingredients.
Our Recovery Protein powder contains both an optimal nutrient profile and an array of active ingredients, proven to accelerate and improve the entire recovery process. Post workout nutrient intake is absolutely key to the repair and regrowth of your muscles.
It’s widely acknowledged by sports nutritionists and experts that what you consume immediately following training can have a profound effect on your recovery. On the most basic level, it’s essential you ingest a sufficient amount of quick absorbing protein and carbohydrates in the correct ratio that induces protein synthesis and muscle glycogen replenishment (the 2 primary mechanisms of recovery). Recovery Protein does exactly this and contains a quick releasing blend of both premium grade proteins (hydrolysed whey protein and whey protein isolate) and carbohydrates (waxy maize starch and maltodextrin).
In addition, to help you better understand the theory, science and active ingredients in Recovery Protein, below we’ve listed each ingredient and given some key insight into how they will help greatly accelerate the entire recovery process:
Protein Works Recovery Protein Blend - The hydrolysed whey and whey isolate blend delivers a quick supply of protein to the muscles to kick start protein synthesis, muscle growth and repair.
Protein Works Recovery Carb Blend - The waxy maize starch and maltodextrin blend serves to replenish muscle glycogen levels and synergistically work with the protein to delivery nutrients to the muscles rapidly and efficiently.
iBCAA - Shown to aid protein synthesis, promotes recovery & lean muscle mass. We use premium grade instantised material for easy mixing.
Electrolyte Blend - Comprising of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium this is essential for replacing minerals and electrolytes lost through sweating.
Digezyme® - Helps the absorption & uptake of the key active ingredients while also helping to break down protein, carbs & fat in the body.
Vitamin C- A powerful antioxidant shown to combat harmful free radicals that can occur during training.
Cherry Extract - A potent anti-inflammatory with anti oxidant properties that have been shown to greatly reduce muscle damage and oxidative stress caused by training.

"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."
