GU RECOVERY DRINK MIX FAQ
WHAT IS RECOVERY?
Recovery is centered around replenishing the body and repairing damage to the muscle, as muscle strength comes from stressing then healing the tissue. After a race or exercise, it’s best to replenish glycogen, electrolytes and BCAAs within 30-60min and provide your muscles with the necessary nutrients to repair damage to the muscle.
WHAT IS ROCTANE PROTEIN RECOVERY DRINK MIX?

Created to promote recovery, ROCTANE Protein Recovery Drink Mix delivers 20g of high-quality whey protein to initiate muscle tissue repair and rebuilding. Each serving also provides fast-acting carbohydrates to replenish muscle glycogen stores along with sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, to aid in rehydration. Mix two scoops into 8 ounces of water and shake well. Enjoy within 30 minutes after training or racing.
WHAT KIND OF PROTEIN IS USED AND WHY?
Whey protein and isolated whey protein. Whey protein is our choice for recovery because it has the highest biological value of any supplemental protein source, which indicates how much of the protein is used by the body for repair and recovery of tissues. It’s also a fast-acting protein source, digested and absorbed more quickly than other proteins, including other milk-derived proteins such as casein, or plant-based proteins. Whey protein isolate is the most purified, protein-rich form of whey protein, and is what we use in new ROCTANE Protein Recovery in addition to hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, which is further broken down into smaller, more easily digestible particles to promote absorption and speed delivery to muscles!
