2:1:1 Recovery Description from Optimum Nutrition
What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat as a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery formula is based upon the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, miceller casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding, while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, there's no question that 2:1:1 Recovery is an indispensible part of every serious athlete's routine.
