Optimum Nutrition is a leader in the protein game and it’s 2:1:1 Recovery isjust another in a line of quality supplements. It is one of those supplements people turn to when they do not know much about what they should get, becasue they know it will be quality. Uses a 2:1:1 ratio : BCAAs(2x Leucine, 1x Isoleucine, 1x Valine), Carbs(70 grams total per 2 scoops, 2x Glucose Polymers and Waxy Maize, 1x Sucrose, 1x Frucose), and Protein(35 g per 2 scoops, 2xHydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate, 1x Micellar Casein, 1x Egg Albumen). All those ingredients make for an ideal post workout supplement that will replenish you for the next day.
I had the Colossal Chocolate and it wasn’t the best tasting thing I have tried but it’s not unbearable or anything.
Looking at the ingredients in this supplement you woudn’t think it would mix well, but it did, no clumping or let overs, gets a bit of foam but that goes away. Good mixability overall.
When I started using this product with the intended dosage(2 Scoops), I had more lean gains than I’ve ever had. I felt “replenished” you might say after a hard workout and I know it’s due to the 70 grams of fast acting carbs this delivers coupled with the 35 grams of protein. It’s a potent combo that Primes your body to repair and build like no other.
If you want quality you usually have to pay for it, and this product isn’t any different. You can get a 3.7lb tub for less then 45$.
Overall I enjoy this other then the taste, the recovery is great. I would recommend this to anybody looking for a leading recovery supplement that will help you get lean gains with proper diet and training.
