Pro Recovery

The overview «RECOVERY PRODUCTS in comparison»

PRO RECOVERY from Sponser® is a protein-carbohydrate recovery shake for the ambitious endurance and strength athlete. The high-quality protein content consists of a unique protein combination of whey, egg and casein in a ratio of 1:1:1 as well as colostrum and pre-cleaved milk protein hydrolysates. This protein combination ensures both optimal regeneration after physical activity, as well as effective growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

The mixture of different carbohydrates supports the first regeneration phase and the replenishment of glycogen stores after exertion, without supplying excessive amounts of carbohydrates and calories. PRO RECOVERY can therefore be used more flexibly according to carbohydrate intake from other sources during or after exercise - for example through sports drinks, bars or the following main meal.

PRO RECOVERY is also enriched with the free amino acids leucine and glutamine. Thanks to the high protein content of 44% and 50%, respectively, this recovery shake can also be used as a sweetener-free protein shake.

Protein in Recovery

Dose-response effects of dietary protein on muscle protein synthesis during recovery from endurance exercise

The importance of protein not only for muscle mass build-up, but also for muscle resynthesis during recovery fromin endurance exercise, is now quite well known. But how much protein is actually needed, and at what dose does more protein no longer bring additional benefits? A new study has examined the dose-dependent effect of 0, 15, 30 and 45 g milk protein plus 45 g carbohydrates on muscle protein synthesis. For this purpose, young, trained endurance athletes were given the respective regeneration drink after a three hour cycling session.

Result: The muscle protein synthesis (determined on the basis of several amino acids) was maximally stimulated by the 30 g dose, which corresponds to approx. 0.5 g/kg of body weight in the examined athletes. The intake of 45 g did not produce a significant additional effect.

Recovery Products

» ALL RECOVERY-PRODUCTS from SPONSER in comparison (PDF)

Intense workouts and competitions empty energy stores and weaken the muscles. The right nutrition enhances performance and significantly reduces recovery time. To ensure optimal recovery after prolonged endurance sports, carbohydrate and protein should be consumed in a ratio of about 3:1 to 4:1. Carbohydrates fill up glycogen stores while protein supports muscle recovery and maintenance. Our formulas are enriched with adequate amounts of micronutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, depending on the use.

The amount of carbohydrates may be reduced during low carb diet periods or for shorter workouts that demand less energy but are still hard on the muscles. Pure protein products may also be used for regeneration depending on the situation or metabolism/nutrition related goals.This depends on your individual diet after exercising and also on you specific metabolism- and nutritional targets. In particular endurance athletes often underestimate their protein requirements and associate protein supplementation with muscle growth and weightlifting rather than its significance for muscle maintenance. SPONSER® offers a wide range of regeneration products, such as drinks, shakes, regeneration bars and supplements.

Protein Tips

Protein: For regeneration, muscle building, weight control and immune defence

Protein fulfils many important functions in your body. For endurance athletes, regeneration, build-up and maintenance of muscle mass, weight control and immune defence are the main concerns.

Regeneration
You need the relevant building materials for regeneration and repair of your stressed muscles. For optimal recovery, you should take 20-30 g of quickly available, high-quality protein as soon as possible after exercise. Whey protein is ideal, e.g. WHEY PROTEIN or a recovery shake such as PRO RECOVERY.
Since your metabolism is running at full speed even hours after intensive training and competitions, you should make sure to repeat your protein intake every 3-4 hours. Suitable sources are basic proteins made from multi-component blends such as MULTI PROTEIN or WHEY CONCENTRATE as well as solid foods and protein bars, such as PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR or PROTEIN 36 BAR.
Sleep is the most important phase of regeneration. In order to shorten the catabolic phase, it is advisable to keep the amino acid influx running as long as possible during the several hours of rest at night. Multi-component proteins such as MULTI PROTEIN and CASEIN, known as «night protein», constitute ideal protein sources, grace to their slow and steady digestion.

Strength and muscle building
For your strength and muscle build-up, the same principles apply as for regeneration, but ideally with slightly higher total protein amounts. Notably, it is also important to maintain a positive net calorie balance. This means that more energy must be ingested throughout the day than burned.

Weight control
In order to achieve weight loss you need a negative energy balance. This means you have to spend more energy than you consume. A regular and increased protein supply also plays a decisive role during such a weight loss regime. On one hand, proteins have a greater effect on satiety than carbohydrates. Furthermore, protein also needs more energy for its digestion by the body, which means less calories consumed net. Proteins are also important during a diet because they reduce the degradation (catabolism) and help to preserve muscle mass and vital structures.

Immune defence
Protein is the main building material and energy supplier of the immune system. Therefore, your protein requirement rises sharply in the event of an infection! In order to stop the spread of viral or bacterial pathogens, a great number of defence cells and immune factors must be produced quickly.

Recovery Drinks

What is the difference between RECOVERY SHAKE, RECOVERY DRINK and PRO RECOVERY?

SPONSER offers a range of recovery drinks that are suitable for quick regeneration after hard endurance exertion. A quick overview is provided by this table comparison of our regeneration drinks.

Basics on regeneration in endurance sports
From a nutritional point of view, endurance athletes primarily need carbohydrates and protein following exercise. However, it is virtually impossible to determine the exact amount and ratio of carbohydrates and protein required for each type of exercise. There are too many individual and situational factors involved. For example, the utilisation rate of food intake alone is different for each individual.

However, there are a few rules of thumb that should be adhered to in order to promote recovery:

• 50-60 g carbohydrates per hour after an energetically demanding load, every hour until the next main meal.
• Each main meal should contain 20-30 g protein.
• Take a late meal (possibly also without carbohydrates) with slow protein (for example CASEIN or MULTI PROTEIN) to bridge the night phase.
• Goal: Take one serving of protein every 3-4 hours. A dose of approx. 20-30 g is the necessary trigger amount to optimally support protein synthesis, i.e. recovery.

RECOVERY SHAKE, RECOVERY DRINK and PRO RECOVERY by SPONSER® are equally suitable for recovery or muscle building. The shakes differ primarily in their carbohydrate content and functionality. Briefly described, the shakes differ as follows:

PRO RECOVERY and RECOVERY SHAKE both deliver approx. 20-25 g protein per prepared portion. PRO RECOVERY, in contrast to RECOVERY SHAKE, contains significantly less carbohydrates, so that the carbohydrates can be added according to hunger or need (bar, banana, pasta, etc.). Depending on the training goal (e.g. low glycogen training) or also for physiological reasons (body weight) it is advisable to reduce the carbohydrates in a certain training phase.

PRO RECOVERY is, as the name suggests, even more geared towards professional and ambitious athletes. It consists of a broad protein mixture with quickly and slowly available protein sources including colostrum, and offers higher convenience through lower drinking volume and its preparation with water. PRO RECOVERY with its functional ingredients delivers the highest possible quality in the regeneration area and is also suitable for taking shortly before strength training or hard units.

RECOVERY SHAKE is more satiating and tastier for many grace to its preparation with milk, but it also provides significantly more carbohydrates, which is ideal for classic muscle build-up but also for energetic regeneration.

RECOVERY DRINK is intended for the first replenishment of the energy stores at the competition or training site, or in the changing room. It provides a light, well-tolerated first portion shortly after the end of a performance in a comfortable portion sachet, and is designed for preparation with water. In combination with AMINO 12500, RECOVERY DRINK is an ideal recovery product in competitive situations.
