SKRATCH LABS RECOVERY MIX
£28.95 What a truly delicious drink this is. But a recovery drink containing caffeine? That’s madness. Or perhaps not. A 2008 study by noted physiologist John Hawley studied the impact of taking caffeine with carbs postexercise because previous studies had shown an increase in levels of blood glucose… and Hawley found the same with muscle glycogen levels – 60% higher in the caffeine/carb group than the carb-only group. Then again, Hawley’s caffeine dose came in significantly higher than the 45mg per serving here. So that coffee extract could purely be for taste rather than ergogenic reasons, which is no bad thing for evening sessions. As for protein, that varies between 8-16g depending on scoops, and comes from milk. Its moderate protein content could be to make way for the 35g of carbs.
