Recovery Protein Smoothie Recipe
One of the main goals after a training session is to stimulate muscle protein synthesis (MPS) to maximise recovery. Our recovery smoothie helps do just that with a blend of proteins, carbohydrates, fats and minerals.
MPS is the force behind the adaptive response we have to exercise. Combinations of protein & carbohydrate have been shown to be effective in stimulating MPS.
In addition to that, some level of fat and the increased caloric intake that fat provides has been shown to be favourable as well.
The addition of salts and the banana helps also to replace lost electrolytes during the training session such as sodium and potassium.
