Product Description

myrecovery is a premium carbohydrate and protein recovery drink that has been formulated using the latest scientific research, specifically for use AFTER exercise.

Key Benefits

myrecovery is unlike most other formula's on the market as it makes use of ONLY whey protein isolate (WPI), a superior, highly bioavailable**** source of protein containing a minimum 93% protein! Furthermore, myrecovery also provides easily digestible fast acting carbohydrates and a full spectrum of electrolytes.

Why is my myrecovery unique?

  • WPI: WPI is fast acting and very low in lactose, meaning maximum growth and repair of muscle tissue (1)*** and minimal digestive distress. Furthermore, the amino acid profile of WPI includes significant levels of essential amino acids including Leucine, a branched chain amino acid involved in muscle protein synthesis (2).  
  • The combination of WPI and Maltodextrin (a carbohydrate) has been shown to increase the rate of muscle glycogen replenishment following strenuous exercise (3, 4).
  • Whilst WPI is the ideal protein source for skeletal muscle repair, it also has several health benefits, including enhancing one's lymphatic and immune system (5, 6) 
  • Maltodextrin: a carbohydrate derived from corn starch that due to its lower solution osmolality is digested faster than glucose, fructose and other sugars (7), ensuring rapid glycogen replenishment and refuelling (8, 9), without gastrointestinal distress, all vitally important to help in the recovery of muscle tissue**
  • Creatine Monohydrate: Creatine is touted as the most effective nutritional supplement available to athletes to increase high intensity exercise capacity (10).
  • When consumed close to the time of exercise, Creatine is proven to increase physical performance in high intensity exercise*****. Consuming creatine, carbohydrates and protein together appears to increase muscular uptake of both creatine (11, 12) AND carbohydrates (13), further helping with the speed of muscle recovery.
  • Evidence also suggests Creatine can help reduce inflammatory markers and muscle soreness following exercise (14) 
  • Electrolytes: including sodium, provided naturally from Himalayan pink salts as well as specific doses of potassium, calcium and magnesium, ensure adequate rehydration following exercise (15).
  • It is paramount to begin exercise properly hydrated, and one of the best methods to achieve that is to rehydrate following bouts of intense activity (16), hence our electrolyte inclusion in myrecovery. 
  • Our unique strawberry flavour is both natural and subtle, making myrecovery taste amazing! 

  • * Per 69g x 400ml serving

    **Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.

    ***Protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass.

    ***Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass.

    **** the bioavailability of Whey Protein Isolate is defined as the amount ingested capable of being absorbed and available for use or storage.

    ***** Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise when a daily intake of 3g of Creatine is taken.
