Optimise muscle recovery from endurance training through a research-based blend of carbohydrates, protein and electrolytes
The timing and composition of macronutrient intake following endurance exercise is critical to facilitating recovery and maximising training adaptations. Rapidly-digesting carbohydrate and quality protein intake are essential immediately after training to replenish muscle carbohydrate (glycogen) stores and facilitate repair to damaged muscles. Supplying these ingredients in our powder formulation allows you get the exact ingredients at the right time – the sooner, the better – in a convenient and tasty manner.

Why choose RecoverAce® Endurance?
Endurance exercise results in a depletion of the body’s carbohydrate stores (glycogen) and also fatigued and damaged muscles. The immediate post-exercise recovery period (30 to 60 minutes) represents your body’s greatest potential to absorb nutrients, restore glycogen and begin the recovery process. If you are an athlete who trains intensely with short recovery periods (24 hours or less) between sessions, RecoverAce® Endurance is your ideal recovery product. This formulation can help to maximise recovery from each session and kick-start your preparation for the next training or performance.
Best practice guidelines for optimum recovery: after endurance exercise are for 0.8 to 1.2 g of carbohydrate per kg body mass and 0.2 to 0.4 g of protein per kg body mass taken immediately afterwards. RecoverAce® Endurance is the quintessential recovery product to use after endurance exercise as it addresses these guidelines directly. This advanced formulation contains a proprietary blend of both fast- and slow-release carbohydrates in the form of Vitargo® and Palatinose®, and a high whey protein source. In addition, RecoverAce® Endurance includes premium ingredients including L-glutamine, and the potent antioxidants ALCAR and alpha-lipoic acid to further enhance the recovery process.
Special carbohydrate: RecoverAce® Endurance contains a unique rapidly-digested carbohydrate, Barley Starch Amylopectin (Vitargo®), that replenishes glycogen stores faster than standard sugars such as glucose/dextrose, maltodextrin or waxy maize starch. Vitargo® is a high molecular weight carbohydrate that increases muscle glycogen re-synthesis of up to 1.7 times faster than standard carbohydrates in the first two hours post- exercise. With a faster rate of glycogen re-synthesis, athletes experience enhanced recovery and are better prepared to train or perform intensely again within a short time-period.
A low glycemic index (GI) CHO: is also included in appropriate amounts in the form of Palatinose® for a sustained supply of energy. This low GI CHO helps to minimise adverse fluctuations in blood sugar and sustain energy levels.
Protein: Consuming appropriate sources of protein post-exercise enhances recovery by facilitating the repair of damaged muscles and can increase the rate of glycogen re-synthesis. RecoverAce® Endurance contains the finest quality protein in the form of fast-digesting whey protein hydrolysate which has the highest bio-availability and absorption rate when compared to other protein sources.
Glutamine: RecoverAce® Endurance contains 5 g of glutamine per single serving. Glutamine has demonstrated its ability to enhance muscular growth and improve the rate of recovery between workouts through its anabolic and anti-catabolic properties.

For best results, depending on your goals and training intensity, take one serving (1 serving = 100 g or 2 scoops) in 500 ml of water immediately after your training session, and follow-up with an appropriate nutrition strategy in the next 2 to 4 hours. If other food sources are not available, take another serving of RecoverAce® Endurance 2 hours later. Intake guidelines are based on the recovery requirements of a 70 kg individual completing high intensity endurance training. Serving size may be scaled-up or scaled-down depending on your body mass and training intensity.
For best mixing results, the water should be poured into the shaker before adding the powder serving.
Note: While we strive to ensure that all serving measurements are accurate using ROS scoops, these are only approximate and are not a substitute for using a weighing device.
