RECOVERY
BENEFITS
A combo of carbs and protein promotes muscle growth and supplies the hydration of a sports drink. A high dose of protein builds lean body mass, and electrolytes and vitamins replenish the muscles. Whey and casein protein supply amino acids for immediate repair and recovery. Another ingredient reduces soreness. Fast and slow releasing proteins facilitate sustained muscle growth; carbs restore energy to prevent muscle breakdown. Natural proteins build muscle, calcium fortifies bones, potassium supplies electrolyte balance and riboflavin aids in energy usage.
