What is Recovery XS ?

This exciting new formulation combines fast-release whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey, with a carbohydrate blend of waxy maize starch and maltodextrin.

It’s designed to be absorbed quickly by the body, ideal for post-workout when your muscles require protein the most, while the carbohydrates go a long way towards replenishing your vital muscle glycogen stores.*

Available in mouthwatering Chocolate Smooth, Strawberry or Banana, Recovery XS is perfect for anyone looking for the complete recovery shake.

New Features:

  • Improved protein blend – whey protein isolate & hydrolysed whey
  • Enhanced  carbohydrate blend – waxy maize starch & maltodextrin
  • Even more protein – 28g per 100g

Why use Recovery XS ?

The fast-release protein blend of whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey protein – one of the purest whey proteins available – mean it’s it delivers 28g of high-quality protein per serving, which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Boasting an impressive 42g of carbohydrates per serving, the waxy maize starch and maltodextrin blend aim to rapidly replenish muscle glycogen stores depleted through exercise* – essential for recovery.

It also contains:

  • Creapure: Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise, through a daily intake of at least 3g
  • L-leucine: Essential amino acid that cannot be synthesised by the human body so must be consumed through food or dietary supplements.

Is this product for me?

If you’re looking for the perfect post-workout shake, including being packed with protein, then Recovery XS V2 is for you. It’s a great option for supporting recovery with quick-releasing protein and carbs.

*Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. This beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours, and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.

Key Benefits

  • Now packed with 28g of protein per 100g
  • Low in sugar and fat
  • New and improved fast-release blend

Suggested Use

For maximum benefit, we recommend mixing 2 ½ large scoops (90g) with 400-500ml water in a Myprotein shaker after exercise.

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and out of reach of young children. This product is intended to be used alongside an active lifestyle and a balanced diet.

Some of the reviews on here are daft. This is a really good product and does what it says on the tin. Defiantly helped with my recovery time and id recoment to anyone. Yes it's a little bitty but it's got a lot packed into it. If you want smooth then buy whey and take everything else in powder/ tablet. Very convenient shake and for me, does not taste bad at all!

Excellent post work out recovery formula that gives impressive gains. I'm training for triathlon but still putting on muscle doing plyometric and body weight workouts, not pushing heavy weights. Tastes great (chocolate smooth), mixes well and is excellent value given the complex content. Definitely helps me train harder. Highly recommended.

I can't comment on the impact on muscle mass or development at this stage but I've been taking it for a week and the main thing I've noticed is the way it fills you up. I feel my appetite is kept at bay not only throughout the morning but the rest of the day. It doesn't taste particularly pleasant compared to the impact protein but I found that the protein wasn't really filling me up (I have a big appetite). Whether I will see a difference in strength, I don't know right now.

Better with milk but this will slow down the absorption so best to take with water as I'm told.

I used this for 4 weeks, three scoops 4-5 times per week. Workouts were strength oriented. From week 2 onwards I noticed a massive reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness, and by the end of the month I had virtually no pain the following days. I took no other protein supplements at the same time and still gained a significant amount of strength and size. This is great! I'd advise on giving the shake an extra long mix - it took around a minute to get rid of all the clumps. I used strawberry which tasted absolutely fine.

I Bought the Recovery XS 3 weeks ago, Taste wise the chocolate and banana flavour is great and it mixes well. The combination of Creatine, Carbohydrates and Protein is the best for maximal gains. Overall one of the best supplements i have ever taken, i recommend it at everyone without any hesitation. Cheers

My protein supplements are power booster for gym rats. Best time to take protein after a workout is one to get protein into the body so that the protein can be delivered to your muscles, to begin healing the "micro tears" (very small tears in the muscle tissue, caused by intense contraction of the muscle during workout) in the muscle.Because solid food takes more time to digest and to break down the protein and send it to the muscles, it can be best to take a protein shake immediately following a workout, since protein shakes only take about 30 minutes to reach the muscle after ingestion. Definitely, we can see the advantage to taking a protein shake in this instance.

My protein supplements are simply the best.Protein is a component of every cell in your body. In fact, hair and nails are mostly made of protein.Our body uses it to build and repair tissue.We need it to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Whey,isolate,casein works well. Thanks
