5. Choose smart: An all-in-one recovery shake is not always necessary!
For those times when your workout was not too strenuous and shorter than two hours, you may want to instead opt for leucine only. Leucine is tops when it comes to recovering and building muscle. In addition, with regular use (starting at the 3-week mark), you will enjoy an extra boost to your fitness level. We developed leucine in capsule form, making it easy to take.
For efforts that are low or last less than 2 hours, a recovery shake is often not necessary and you can work with separate leucine. For efforts of less than 2 hours, we have therefore developed Leucine separately in a capsule. Of course, this is not a total recovery as a recovery shake, but it is ideal to use after short and non-intense efforts.
Did you know?
As leucine is the most expensive ingredient in a recovery shake, many commercial brands choose not to use enough of it, deeming their shakes utterly useless for recovery. While other brands opt not to sell leucine on its own because it is commercially more attractive to sell expensive recovery shakes.
