⭐ QUALITY MATTERS ⭐
Not only is it important to get protein in your body WITHIN 30 minutes of exercise, but the QUALITY of protein also matters!
➡️ It’s the LEUCINE content that matters most!
Because the amino acid profile of the protein is KEY. Whey is higher in the amino acid leucine. It takes 50g of soy protein to match the bioavailability of leucine of 25g of whey. High intensity exercise and postexercise recovery change the amino acid protein metabolism in your muscles, increasing the metabolism of leucine.
You can eat all kinds of protein, but if you aren’t maximizing your leucine intake, you are never going to get to that tipping point in the muscle to trigger the repair and regrowth.
➡️ That’s one of the reasons why I PRIORITIZE my postworkout shake! I have it IMMEDIATELY after my workout and run, even if it was a short workout and/or run.
➡️ My postworkout is CHOCOLATE, plant based and 100% natural! It uses fast-, intermediate-, and slow-release proteins, BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), a small amount of carbohydrates, and a powerful pomegranate extract that work together to:
✅ Speed muscle recovery
✅ Combat exercise-induced muscle soreness
✅ Promote lean-muscle synthesis
✅ Improve muscle strength recovery
It fuels my body PROPERLY and gets me protein, especially leucine, FAST! I’m RARELY sore which allows me to push hard day after day, and it has helped me tone and build significant lean muscle over the last 1.5 years!
Seriously, it is a GAME CHANGER! As runners, food should be PART of our training and it makes all the difference in your training, performance, and recovery!

How Recover has worked for others:
“I’m a run streaker- I’ve ran over 2400 days now! Pair that with the programs and you get some SORENESS. Recover has allowed me to push through my workouts and run and be able to repair my muscles to do it all over again the next day.”
“I’m rarely sore after lifting… And I push HARD! I’m recovering more efficiently between workouts and am able to just keep going each day!”
“Recover has influenced my training both mentally and physically. I used to think waiting hours after working out to eat was necessary in order to see results. After learning about the benefits I decided to give it a try and there is no going back now. I often crave my recover in the middle of a workout and make it a priority to have it right after my workout. I now am no longer sore the next day. I used to hold back in workouts because I would be worried that my body would be too sore the next day. Now I feel that I can push harder in my workouts knowing that I will be fueling my body properly right when I am done to be prepared for tomorrow.”
“Recover has helped me feel better after workouts, helps my muscles not feel sore and I typically don’t like to eat solid food right away, so recover has been perfect right after running.”
