Helps Refuel And Replenish Hard-Working Muscles!

What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat has a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery is based on the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, micellar casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine to Valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, there’s no question that 2:1:1 Recovery is an indispensable part of every serious athlete’s routine.

This stuff taste awsome. It really helps because if your like me, you get tired of always eating chochlate, vinilla, and strawberry. Great change. I also notice an increase recovery time when i used to product compared to just takeing wpi with sucrose.

This is one of the best tasting shakes there is. (Even with water) The nutrient profile is top notch for a post. I don't consider my workout complete until I down this right after. To see the best benefits, I recommend taking two scoops even though it is pricey. Great product from ON as usual.

Gotta say this is a hell of a product. The profile is excellent, and the taste is outstanding, even in water. The price is decent, could be better, but overall a solid post wo shake.
