HIGH5 Recovery Drink is the ultimate drink for after exercise and the Pro’s choice. The whey isolate used in Recovery is a high-quality source of protein. Protein contributes to muscle growth and maintenance.
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.
HIGH5's Recovery gives similar benefits to Energy Drink with Protein, but there are a number of key differences. Recovery has a higher protein content. It can also be mixed with milk or water, whereas Energy Drink with Protein can only be mixed with water. Some sports drinks can be acidic. Recovery Drink 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 Recovery Drink 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.
Directions for Use:
Mix a scoop (included) of the powder contents (60g) into 400ml of water or milk and shake well. You can also use milk substitutes such as coconut, soy or rice milk. For best results consume one serving of Recovery Drink in the first hour after hard exercise. You can also have another one or two servings later in the day or just before you go to bed.
