Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery™ Very Vanilla -- 3.73 lbs

Rapid Replenishment & Recovery Formula. Powdered Protein & Carbohydrate Drink Mix. 35G Protein. 16G BCAAs. 23G Essential Amino Acids. 70G Fast Carbs. THE BIGGER PICTURE OF RECOVERY. 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™ is based on the sports nutrition science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and helps support results better 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. With 5 grams of added BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine to help 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.

it works & tatses great
 March 17, 2013
"I love this stuff. It is very effective at reducing fatigue & soreness in my muscles. I have only tried chocolate & mucho mango & both are delicious. I recently ordered Optimum Nutition's "Promax" in chocolate & it does not taste anywhere near as good as this 2:1:1 recovery in chocolate does. the promax has a ton of protein per serving but the muscle recovery effectiveness & flavor are lacking in comparison. i'll choke the other stuff down but next time i'm ordering this 2:1:1 formula again."

Great Product
 April 1, 2010
"This is such a great product and it really is packed with a ton of nutrition essential to your body after a workout. I use this in lieu of the P90x recovery drink and it seems to work. Best tasting sports supplement I've had, but I do think the mucho mango tastes better than the very vanilla."

Bad flavor
 July 18, 2008
"The flavor is nasty. I either have to chug it or blend it with lots of fruit. I recommend banana because the powder has a somewhat banana flavor. I would prefer chocolate powder."

Very Effective
 July 6, 2008
"I have been using this product for a month and have just now reached the bottom of my first 3.7lb jug. Two scoops of the 2:1:1 Recovery taken immediately after intense workouts greatly reduced my muscle soreness and post-workout fatigue. This is the best tasting product I have bought so far and since it is only meant to be taken after workouts it does not run out too quicky. Another phenomenal product by Optimum Nutrition."
