2:1:1 Recovery By Optimum Nutrition - 3.73LB - Colossal Chocolate - Protein
RAPID REPLENISHMENT & RECOVERY FORMULA. Naturally and Artificially Flavored. 35g Protein. 70g Fast Carbs. 16g BCAAs. 23g Essential Amino Acids. The Bigger Picture of Recovery: 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 formula is based upon 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 and 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. THE RAPID RECOVERY RATIOS: 2:1:1 CARBOHYDRATE RATIO-2 x Glucose Polymers + Waxy Maize Starch; 1 x Sucrose; 1 x Fructose. 2:1:1 PROTEIN RATIO-2 x Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate; 1 x Micellar Casein; 1 x Egg Albumen. 2:1:1 BCAA RATIO-2 x Leucine; 1 x Isoleucine; 1 x Valine. BEYOND THE BASICS: 2:1 ratio of carbohydrates to proteins; Optimal CARB COMBINATION for FASTEST ABSORPTION; Blends FASTER, intermediate, and slower acting PROTEINS for sustained amino acid delivery; Loaded WITH HYDROLYZED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATES; FORTIFIED with 5 GRAMS of ADDED BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS (BCAAs). Serving scoop included. But may settle to the bottom during shipping.
RAPID REPLENISHMENT & RECOVERY FORMULA
ON's 2:1:1 Recovery blends complementary ratios of carbohydrates with quality proteins to help optimize both aspects of exercise recovery. Carbs help restore the muscle glycogen burned for energy during intense exercise while the amino acids from protein help support recovery from the breakdown of training. We added 5 grams of BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine and Valine to make this formula an even more indispensable part of serious training programs

How to Take Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery Protein:
Shaker: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to your shaker cup and then pour 12-16 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. (If you're making a 1 rounded scoop serving, just cut the amount of water or milk in half). Don't have a shaker cup? Visit www.optimumnutrition.com and order a custom shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym. Blender: Add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to a blender filled with 12-16 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Reduce the liquid and ice by half if you are only using one rounded scoop of 2:1:1 Recovery powder. Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can add 2:1:1 Recovery in a glass filled with cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. If you're preparing a 2 rounded scoop serving add 12-16 oz of liquid, for a 1 rounded scoop serving use 6-8 oz. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Suggested Use: Based upon your body weight, activity levels, and performance goals, consume one or more scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery immediately after workouts. Less than 149 bodyweight (lbs): 1 Serving size (Scoops); 150-199 Bodyweight (lbs): 1-2 Serving size (Scoops); 200+ Bodyweight (lbs): 2+ Serving size (Scoops). Tip: Consume a high-protein, high-carbohydrate whole food meal or second serving of 2:1:1 Recovery 2-3 hours after your post-workout recovery shake to maximize stored energy levels for your next workout. Store in a cool, dry place.
