The best post-workout carb-to-protein ratio is anywhere from 1:1 to 5:1 according to many studies. Since our product is designed for individuals seeking maximum muscle recovery and lean mass gain without fat gain, we use a 1:1 carb-to-protein ratio. Note that it is much easier to add extra carbs to your diet than to increase protein. If you are very lean and have a hard time gaining size, you can easily increase the ratio to 2:1 by adding a banana or two tablespoons of honey. To get to 3:1, add two bananas or four tablespoons of honey.
Leucine is the most significant of the three branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) when it comes to protein synthesis and muscle recovery as indicated in some studies. Adding leucine to post-workout meal prevents muscle breakdown and enhances protein synthesis. Our recovery mix contains added leucine to boost its ratio to the other BCAAs to 4:1:1.
Taking BCAA Post-Workout after an intense workout can be beneficial in maintaining muscle growth and energy required to reduce muscle breakdown. This contains L-glutamine for enhanced exercise performance, L-leucine for stimulated muscle growth, vitamin B6 for energy, and L-valine for promoted muscle growth and tissue support.
