After a long day (130 miles) on the bike on Monday, the Tour de France riders will get a well deserved rest day on Tuesday. We're big proponents of smart recovery. The window when your body is able to most efficiently absorb nutrients is within 30 minutes after you’ve finished your workout. Your body will continue to turn carbs into muscle glycogen 3x faster than normal for up to 4 hours later, so what you eat matters.
Fluid Recovery has been a mainstay for us in the recovery category since the beginning. Through a scientific approach, Fluid Recovery was created to ensure all athletes, young and old, get the nutrients needed directly after exercise to aid in muscle recovery. This great tasting recovery drink focuses on carb-based recovery to restore muscle glycogen, buffer cramping and break down lactic acid. It's made with all natural ingredients and is gluten-free and lactose free. The new vegan-friendly formula in Cinnamon Vanilla
flavor is the first recovery drink of its kind to offer non-GMO Pea Protein in a 3:1 carb to protein ratio, 3 grams of the amino acid L-glutamine.
We recommend using Fluid recovery within 30 minutes after post-workout to optimize your recovery. Here's our favorite recipe:
- 1.5 cups coconut or almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter
- 1 scoop Fluid Recovery
- ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
