PHD RECOVERY 2:1 DOUBLE CHOCOLATE.

PHD YOUR UP AGAIN.........
 
WHAT IS RECOVERY 2:1: Recovery 2:1 is a sports nutrition product designed to assist with lean muscle building and recovery from intense exercise. PHD have a NEW FORMULA for this & 4 NEW FLAVOURS
RASPBERRY LEMONADE
FRUIT SMOOTHIE
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE
ORANGE & MANGO
 
TASTE: Ok i never tasted the old version of this BUT this is very rich thick chocolate sugary taste its very sweet i cant see every 1 liking this if you like rich sweet sugary tasting shakes ull love this. Id like to try the other flavours as this was a tad to sweet for me sorry PHD altho we can expect this with 4 different carb sources its going to taste sweet.
 
MIXABILITY: 80g  of powder is a fair amount as we all know & this is what a serving is BUT to be honest id had no worries here i used a lot of water & it mixed very well no clumps & bits all went down well smooth.
 
PROFILE: Its all here in this every thing we would want in a PWO recovery shake. The key ingredients are & this is for the full serving 80g.
 
WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE WPI 24g: This is in a blend with WPC as we all know WPI contains a very low level of fat, carbohydrates and lactose making this an extremely pure source of muscle building protein.
 
CREAPURE CREATINE MONOHYDRATE 4000mg: to help increase performance during bouts of repeated, high intensity exercise. We all know its 3 amino acids been a bit of talk on here over all these different types of Creatine & every 1 has there own views.
 
VITAMIN C 200mg: for immune system function and energy yielding metabolism.
 
4:1:1 BCAA RATIO: PHD have given us a new ratio here as the old formula was 2:1:1 this is a group of three AMINO ACIDS that are essential for growth and recovery LEUCINE, ISOLEUCINE and VALINE which make up approximately one third of skeletal muscle in the human body. However ours are in the muscle building ratio of 4:1:1 which means you get 4 parts LEUCINE which is the key AMINO ACID responsible for increasing protein synthesis
 
CARB SOUTCES: Carbohydrates are an important fuel for exercise it is stored in your liver and muscles as glycogen and needs to be replenished daily. There are simple carbohydrates like Fructose and Glucose regularly known as Dextrose and Complex Carbohydrates such as Starch Barley and Oats. Here PHD give us The 2:1 ratio CARBS : PROTEIN
 
Now as for the carbs we have MALTODEXTRIN 18% DEXTROSE MONOHYDRATE18% WAXY MAIZE STARCH16% WAXY BARLEY FLOUR10%
 
MALTODEXTRIN: is a premium grade high glycemic index (GI) carbohydrate which provides an ultra fast energy release to fuel your body.
 
DEXTROSE MONOHYDRATE: Dextrose is a monosaccharide & is a natural sugar & is a big constituent in energy drinks adding to the sweetness and taste. Dextrose dissolves well in liquids and being a simple form of glucose mixes well with other supplements like creatine and protein to make very good pre or post energy drinks. 
 
WAXY MAIZE STARCH: Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) is a complex long-chain high molecular weight carbohydrate free of sugar and lactose.
 
WAXY BARLEY FLOUR: A low GI slow burning carbohydrate powder derived from waxy barley starch.
 
OVERALL: Yes i do think this is a good product we have every thing needed for us PWO the profile looks good & these new flavours make a good change. The only down side it can work out expensive as these only come in 16 serving bags costing from £19.99 up too £25ish.
