When you've pushed yourself hard in training, GU Recovery Drink Mix provides the means to refuel post-ride and prepare for the next outing. This recovery drink mix is rich in the ingredients you need to replenish energy stores and rebuild muscles, such as protein, amino acids, and carbohydrates. GU utilizes energy-dense whey protein isolate to promote protein synthesis and reduce muscle-protein breakdown. Amino acids, including arginine and glutamine, aid in rebuilding muscle, aid in the growth hormone secretion, as well as promote a healthy immune system. Carbohydrates provide energy while sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in rehydration by maintaining water balance.
- Carbohydrates replenish glycogen stores and help prevent muscle protein breakdown
- Amino acids promote blood flow, support a strong immune system, and initiate protein synthesis
- Protein helps promote muscle recovery and reduces muscle protein breakdown
- Electrolytes maintain water balance and aid in hydration
- Formulated to dissolve quickly and prevent clumping
- Sold in a 15-serving container
