    Recovery XS | Product Overview & Benefits

    What is Recovery XS ?

    This exciting new formulation combines fast-release whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey, with a carbohydrate blend of waxy maize starch and maltodextrin.

    It’s designed to be absorbed quickly by the body, ideal for post-workout when your muscles require protein the most, while the carbohydrates go a long way towards replenishing your vital muscle glycogen stores.*

    Available in mouthwatering Chocolate Smooth, Strawberry or Banana, Recovery XS is perfect for anyone looking for the complete recovery shake.

    New Features:

    • Improved protein blend – whey protein isolate & hydrolysed whey
    • Enhanced  carbohydrate blend – waxy maize starch & maltodextrin
    • Even more protein – 28g per 100g

    Why use Recovery XS ?

    The fast-release protein blend of whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey protein – one of the purest whey proteins available – mean it’s it delivers 28g of high-quality protein per serving, which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

    Boasting an impressive 42g of carbohydrates per serving, the waxy maize starch and maltodextrin blend aim to rapidly replenish muscle glycogen stores depleted through exercise* – essential for recovery.

    It also contains:

    • Creapure: Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise, through a daily intake of at least 3g
    • L-leucine: Essential amino acid that cannot be synthesised by the human body so must be consumed through food or dietary supplements.

    Is this product for me?

    If you’re looking for the perfect post-workout shake, including being packed with protein, then Recovery XS V2 is for you. It’s a great option for supporting recovery with quick-releasing protein and carbs.

    *Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. This beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours, and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.

    Key Benefits
    • Now packed with 28g of protein per 100g
    • Low in sugar and fat
    • New and improved fast-release blend
  • Suggested Use

    For maximum benefit, we recommend mixing 2 ½ large scoops (90g) with 400-500ml water in a Myprotein shaker after exercise.

    Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and out of reach of young children. This product is intended to be used alongside an active lifestyle and a balanced diet.

Tastes terrible

I had used another similar product before and decided to give this one a try but the taste is so bad it's undrinkable, the after taste especially is the worst part. It looks good and mixes well if you can somehow stomach it, but theres far better tasting products out there. I had the smooth chocolate flavour.

Does the job if you can overcome the taste

Used to love the old recovery powder in strawberry but the new recovery xs in strawberry cream flavour is truly revolting - so overly sweet and nearly undrinkable. They have also increased the amount you are advised to use which meant you could taste the powdery texture so went back to using 60g with around 500ml water which is better. Do not recommend

Not Impressed

I usually order a different recovery product from my protein but it was out of stock so thought I'd try this. It smelt goid and mixed well. Unfortunately the aftertaste is horrid really bitte and I couldn't drink it. I won't be buying again.

Why the change?

Works well, noticed reduced muscle soreness and quicker recovery the day or two after training. Got to say I’m not impressed with the ‘new and improved reformulation’. I ordered it without realising it had changed to discover the serving size has gone up 50% with no discernible change in the macros and the taste is significantly worse. Shame as it is a great product, just feel it didn’t need tampering with and the changes aren’t an improvement in my opinion. 90g per serving is mad, time for a change.

so far so good

Read some reviews and don’t understand why some say it’ doesn’t mix well?..mixes fine..tastes better than most other powders..slightly chalky but with the creatine added I would expect that..too early too report on results but if judging by the ingredients this appears too be a pretty potent product👍..I use my proteins whey isolate and bedtime extreme and they are both excellent..don’t see this being any different.

Great

1st time using this range, I do a lot of boxing training as well as weight training so needed a carb/protein mix shake post workout , although reviews said it didn't taste/mix well I found it mixed and tasted excellent with or without a blender On non intense training days I mixed 1 scoop of this with 1 scoop of normal MYPROTEIN DIET WHEY (vanilla) coconut milk and frozen cherries , tasted amazing .... definitely recommend this product
Goes Well With:
Coconut milk, frozen cherries,

Recovery XS

Chocolate smooth is good. Not the most amazing taste out of the protein I've used but definitely able to get down. I usually blend in a banana anyway to my shakes which helps the flavour so not a problem.
Goes Well With:
Milk

Great product, but overly sweet

This is a great product and mixes brilliantly. I bought chocolate smooth as chocolate was a safe bet for flavour. However, its overly sweet, drinkable but too sweet for me. Apart from that it's perfect, recovery times are shorter and strength gains are good.
Goes Well With:
Water, bcaa's

Impressively bad

I've usually stuck to whey products in the past, but thought i'd go change things up by going for the Recovery XS this time. I went for chocolate smooth as chocolate orange has gone down well previously. All I can say is that the taste of the product was impressively bad. I'm surprised that with only 3.3g of creatine monohydrate per 100g (there's no way to make creatine taste like anything other than sand) that this could taste so bad. I did read reviews prior to purchase and anyone who thinks this tastes anything other than horrendous is delusional. I will buy Whey again, but i'm really disappointed with this product. There's no whey I'll get through 2.5kg.
Goes Well With:
Tried with milk, didn't work for me.

Too Sickly Sweet

I use this after running for the recovery and to stop me craving carbs the next day. I used the chocolate flavour and it is just far too sweet and sickly. It mixes OK - I used water with the standard lid mess shaker not the ball. From a recovery point of view it works well but the flavour / taste is awful Re:Go has a much better taste / sweetness balance and I have returned to that now.
