Recovery Plus Elite™ forms part of our informed sport range. The informed sport programme provides assurance that products have been tested for banned substances by LGC Sport Science, a world class sports anti-doping laboratory.
Recovery Plus Elite™ provides all of the actives associated with recovery, in an incredibly convenient and delicious gel. Providing 15g of protein and 20g of carbohydrates, Recovery Plus Elite™ allows you to quickly address the rebuild of muscle tissue†. Whether it is after the gym, training pitch or running track, Recovery Plus Elite™ is available to instantly kick-start that crucial rebuild process.
Alongside this essential formulation of protein and carbohydrates are a range of other actives associated with muscle build and repair. BCAAs (branched chain amino acids), which make up 35% of all muscle tissue, have been incorporated alongside the addition of glutamine. A 3 matrix electrolyte blend has also been added, to replace those lost in sweat during exercise.
Furthermore, a blend of B Vitamins has been added to this gel, contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigueǂ, and assisting in the normal metabolism of protein and carbohydrates¥. Tart Cherry Juice concentrate, an exciting new prospect on the sports nutrition market, is yet another ingredient included in this holistic blend.
In addition to this impressive array of actives, each Recovery Plus Elite™ provides only 0.1g of fat, ensuring the focus of the product is on the rebuild of muscle tissue and the replenishment of muscle glycogen†. Recovery Plus Elite™ comes in two delicious flavours. Exquisitely tasting, you won’t believe this product was primarily focussed on supporting and sustaining your performance.
Here at Myprotein we believe Recovery Plus Elite™ represents the next generation of recovery supplementation. The all-in-one solution to both rebuild and rehydrate, Recovery Plus Elite™ is the benchmark for supporting the sustained performance your training deserves. Formulated to work as hard as you do, Recovery Plus Elite™ is the product your exercise regime has always craved.

ǂ - Niacin / Riboflavin / Vitamin B6 / Vitamin B12 all contributeto the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
¥- Biotin contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism

I only started using pre and post workout supplements recently and find that the Recovery Plus Elite adds a little pick me up energy after my workout as well as provide me with the essential nutrients to recover until brekky. The drawback is that I am on a weight loss journey so my PT says the carbohydrate content is too high.
If you are bored of protein shakes then this product is a great alternative. I use a variety of MyProtein gels purely because I am constantly on the move and find it difficult to mix shakes when i'm in a rush so this is great for people on the move. It's small and light so you can just throw it in your gym bag to take after workouts. No need to mix it with anything, just tear and consume. I also generally prefer the yoghurt/gel based texture over shakes. The texture is like yoghurt but a lot thicker than the Protein Gel, which makes sense as it will also have carbs in there for recovery. The taste is good, not excellent but good. I am a huge fan of the raspberry flavour protein gel so I order the strawberry flavour recovery plus elites as it's the closest I can get to raspberry. The flavour isn't bad but because of the thick texture, it definitely tastes and feels like you're having a protein/recovery/"unnatural" gel which is a bit of a turn off for me as I'd much rather have one that tastes and feels like normal yoghurt. But it's not that bad and I can understand that it needs to pack in a lot of nutrients into that gel. In terms of effectiveness, I think it's great. My workout during the week involves both cardio and weights so by the time I finish, I am absolutely starving. This product instantly provides me with good nutrients to aid in the recovery and I tend to have it immediately after working out or within 15 minutes or so. Overall, great product which I have at least once or twice a day post workout depending on how many I do. If MyProtein can make it taste and feel like the Protein Gel products then it would get a 5/5 for taste too. Otherwise, still a great product!Goes Well With:Protein Gel (pre workout) or other gels (pre workout)
The taste is a bit bitter but worth it. It really is a great alternative product for after your workout. I am so bored of protein shakes after 14 years. This makes a great difference. I highly recommend. Just about to order another two boxes.
