Tired of trying to eat 1 Cup of quinoa, or downing an overly sweet milky drink, or trying to eat a meal with enough protein that doesn’t make you feel like a python? Well, thank GU for coming up with this Recovery Drink Mix which packs an energy-dense, whey protein isolate punch. It has enough protein in to aid in protein synthesis and reduce post exercise muscle-protein breakdown. The carbohydrates are a good mix of fructose and maltodextrin which are optimally absorbed to refill depleted glycogen stores and also help to prevent muscle protein breakdown for energy.
All science behind the bulk – these guys know what they’re doing, and are helping you recover while doing it!
