Tested and certified by the NSF Certified for Sport program, Klean Recovery is a delicious, milk chocolate-flavoured powder formulated with the athlete’s recovery in mind. A 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein helps support optimal glycogen re-synthesis and muscle protein synthesis immediately after a workout or competition. In addition to whey protein, Klean Recovery contains a special hydrolyzed marine protein that is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and is rich in amino acids. These compounds, which include methionine, histidine and arginine, are crucial to muscle-building and nitrogen balance.
The International Society of Sports Nutrition’s position on nutrient timing suggests that a carbohydrate to protein ratio of 3 _ 4:1 may increase endurance performance and maximally promote glycogen re-synthesis during acute and subsequent bouts of endurance exercise. The results of several studies in both animals and humans suggest that post-exercise muscle glycogen storage can be enhanced with a carbohydrate-protein supplement due to the interaction of carbohydrates and protein on insulin secretion.
