The Science Behind 2:1:1 Recovery

Optimum Nutrition's new rapid replenishment and recovery formula provides strength athletes with a unique, cutting-edge product built on a fast-acting combination of carbohydrates, protein and branched chain amino acids blended in ratios found to be ideal for maximum absorption, sustained amino acid delivery and optimal post-workout recovery. 2:1:1 Recovery contains two parts glucose polymers and waxy maize starch to one part sucrose and fructose, two parts hydrolyzed whey protein isolate to one part micellar casein and egg albumen, and two parts leucine to one part isoleucine and valine.

The Bigger Picture: We studied volumes of scientific research to formulate the ideal blend of carbohydrates for replenishing the glycogen stores depleted during your workout. Then we blended in precise ratios of fast, intermediate and slow digesting proteins plus branched chain amino acids to promote anabolic and anti-catabolic processes. 2:1:1 Recovery takes the guesswork out of stacking post-workout carbs and proteins, so you can help your muscles start recovering as soon as you're finished training.
