Why does CLIF Recovery Protein Drink Mix contain 10 grams of protein?
A serving of CLIF Recovery Protein Drink Mix contains 10 grams of high-quality whey and casein1 to help rebuild muscle, organic glucose to help restore muscle glycogen and sodium to help replenish what is lost during activity.
CLIF Recovery Protein Drink Mix acts as a bridge until your post-workout meal because liquid protein provides faster absorption than solid protein sources2.
CLIF Recovery Protein Drink Mix after a workout can serve two purposes. It helps to restore muscle glycogen and also helps rebuild muscle broken down during activity3.
