FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

In addition to repairing muscle tissue post-workout, micronutrients also delay muscle fatigue during workouts.

Fast Fact

Micronutrients play an important role in energy production, hemoglobin synthesis, maintenance of bone health, adequate immune function, and protection of the body against oxidative damage. They assist with synthesis and repair of muscle tissue during recovery from exercise and injury.

Fast Fact

By eating enough carbohydrates throughout the day, protein is free to do its main job: repair and rebuild muscle tissue. If we limit carbohydrates, protein will be needed as an energy source and not be utilized to build lean muscles.

Fast Fact

Glycogen, which is stored in the muscles, is the fuel source athletes must restore following strenuous training. Muscle glycogen is the predominant fuel source used during long bouts of training.

Fast Fact

For rapid recovery from prolonged exercise, it is important to replenish muscle glycogen stores and initiate muscle tissue repair and adaptation. To maximize muscle glycogen replenishment, it is important to consume a carbohydrate supplement as soon after exercise as possible.

Fast Fact

Protein consumption after exercise assist with muscle repair and promotes muscle synthesis and strength, which is essential for athletes looking to improve overall strength and performance.

Fast Fact

Consuming an adequate amount of protein after a workout gives your body the amino acids it needs to repair and rebuild these proteins. It also gives you the building blocks required to build new muscle tissue

Fast Fact

A post-workout meal with both protein and carbs will enhance glycogen storage and muscle protein synthesis. Consuming a ratio of 3 to 1 (carbs to protein) is a practical way to achieve this.

Fast Fact

The three “R’s” of recovery—refuel, rebuild and rehydrate. These are the cornerstones of post-training and recovery nutrition. They are also essential for maximizing the training effect, which can have different applications depending on the type, intensity and duration of the activity.

Fast Fact

The Recovery Principle states that athletes need adequate time to recuperate from training and competition. Leading many to argue that recovery is just as important, if not more important than the training itself. Training places stress on our bodies but it’s not until after training that the adaptations take place.

INGREDIENTS

Whey Protein

Whey Protein

Muscle Repair

The Whey Protien used by Bioteen in our products is a native whey protein concentrate made from whole milk that is free from antibiotics and hormones (rBHG).

 

Whey Protein is a dairy protein source that digests easily and rapidly. Several studies have reported that whey protein after exercise is beneficial to facilitate recovery by increasing protein synthesis and reducing muscle damage.

 

Consuming whey protein after a workout ensures a supply of amino acids that activate muscle protein synthesis for muscle repair and rebuilding.

Sports Nutrition

Maltodextrin

Glucose Polymers

Glycogen Replenishment

Maltodextrin is a maize-derived carbohydrate that consists of glucose molecules in long chains. It is rapidly digested and absorbed without stressing the digestive system. Maltodextrin ensures a fast release of glucose into the bloodstream, and an ideal level of insulin response to trigger the replenishment of glycogen stores in muscles.

Sports Nutrition

Electrolytes

Sodium & Potassium

Rehydration

Restoration of water and electrolyte balance is an essential part of the recovery process after exercise. Sodium is the main electrolyte in extracellular fluid and is susceptible to be lost via sweat during exercise. The intake of sodium helps to maintain the body’s electrolyte balance which helps with water absorption to ensure rehydration. Potassium works in conjunction with Sodium in this process.

Sports Nutrition

TVP

Vitamin Premix

Anti-Fatigue

Teen Vitamin Premix (TVP) is a blend of 12 highly bioavailable vitamins to help the body meet its daily needs. This multivitamin blend consists of Vitamin A, D3, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, Folic Acid and Biotin. These vitamins play important roles that are relevant to post-exercise recovery: supporting energy-yielding metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, the protection of cells from oxidative stress and the maintenance of normal immune functioning.

Sports Nutrition

Minerals

Chelated Minerals

Immune Support

Bioteen’s recovery contains  a blend of 8 highly bioavailable chelated minerals consisting of Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Copper, Chromium, Molybdenum and Boron. These minerals play essential roles like assisting with protein synthesis, antioxidant support, maintaining normal muscle and immune function, assisting normal carbohydrate metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Sports Nutrition

L-Glutamine

L-Glutamine

Immune Support

L-glutamine is an amino acid that acts as an important energy source for the cells of the immune system, helping them to rapidly proliferate and produce appropriate cytokines and antibodies to assist with immune defence. Supplementation helps to restore the body’s glutamine levels which are decreased during exercise. Glutamine also support the digestive system.

REVIEWS

6 reviews for Recovery

  1. Marina Bezuidenhout

    Brilliant product. Has helped my son a lot after intense tennis training.

  2. Josh Johnson

    I use the chocolate flavour Recovery after every cycling training session and race that I do. It tastes delicious when mixed with milk. I normally don’t feel like eating anything straight after a hard training session, so I like to use the Recovery right after I exercise.

  3. Marina Kruger (verified owner)

    She just loves the taste, great product. Excellent post workout shake to get the recovery speed up and works well.

  4. Kerry (verified owner)

    Good recovery product

    Good recovery product being used by my son after his morning paddling training sessions.

  5. Kathryn Kleynhans (verified owner)

    This product really helps his body recover after his intensive soccer games.

  6. Teresa Knight (verified owner)

    We chose Vanilla so we can add chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, fruit etc to the flavour if we want to change it up. My daughter really doesn’t like the Stevia taste, but she manages to take it in and says it helps after her training. She is an elite swimmer, squash and karateka.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

What you do after a tough training session, aka the recovery period, can make or break the next one. When you consume the right nutrients during this time, you provide substrates that the body can use to repair itself and prime you for future exercise, if not done correctly you are open to early onset fatigue, decreased performance and even an increased risk for injury. Adequate recovery helps you return to training faster leading to significant performance and long-term health benefits. However, eating a meal that contains all the right nutrients after exercising is also easier said than done, because exercise increases core temperature and an increased core temperature depresses appetite. For this reason, a shake is often the most practical option.

 

Bioteen’s Recovery is a ready-to-mix nutritional drink that contains a precise blend of proteins, carbohydrates, electrolytes and micronutrients to support post-exercise recovery. To do this, we focus on the 3 R’s: Repair, Refuel and Rehydrate. Let’s explore the ingredients included in our Bioteen Recovery shake to understand how they work:

 

Protein is essential for muscle repair and immunity

Protein is an important recovery nutrient because, in its simplest form, as amino acids, it forms the building blocks for muscle cell development, growth and repair (1). If there is a shortage of these important building blocks, these cells cannot recover from damage sustained during exercise.

 

Recovery contains whey, a highly bioavailable milk protein. High biological value (HBV) proteins contain all 9 essential amino acids, where the term ‘essential’ indicates that these nutrients are unable to be produced by the body, so need to be taken in through the diet to avoid a deficiency. But Bioteen’s Recovery doesn’t contain just regular whey, it contains a unique kind of whey protein called native whey protein concentrate. It’s unique because, unlike regular whey protein concentrate, which is a byproduct of the cheese production process, native whey protein is made by filtering unprocessed milk. This process allows the milk proteins to stay intact and also results in a product that is higher in the essential amino acid leucine (2). Leucine is of particular importance to those who are looking to repair and grow muscle fibers because not only does it act as a substrate for muscle protein synthesis (MPS) but it also actively signals it (*), helping to increase strength, develop lean muscle mass and improve recovery (3). We have also added the conditionally essential amino acid, glutamine, to Bioteen’s Recovery as it has been shown to reduce some fatigue markers and may reduce muscle soreness (4).

 

Sufficient protein also supports healthy immune cell development, growth and repair. Whey protein in particular contains biologically active molecules that may have a beneficial effect on immune health (5) and glutamine not only acts as a fuel for certain immune cells but also helps to strengthen and maintain gut barrier function (bearing in mind that the gut is the primary site for pathogen entry into the body).

 

Carbohydrates (paired with protein) help to refuel lost glycogen stores

When you exercise you use energy and the body’s preferred source for this energy is carbohydrates. When carbs are consumed, they are broken down into glucose and enter the bloodstream (aka blood sugar). The sugar in your blood is easy for your body to access during exercise and if this source runs out, your body liberates carbohydrates that are stored in your muscles in the form of glycogen. If you have an adequate glycogen reserve, it can allow you to work out for a longer period of time without having to refuel, so replenishing this store by consuming carbohydrates after it has been used up, is an essential part of recovery (6). Usually, the sooner you can do this after exercising, the better. Glycogen stores can replenish at a rate of 5% per hour, meaning that at a minimum it will take 20 hours for your stores to be properly refueled and any delay in carb intake after exercise will only serve to delay this rate. In addition to the effect protein has on cell repair, adding protein to the post-workout supplement or meal may also help to increase glycogen resynthesis rates and in addition to this it will promote an anabolic (or building up) hormonal profile (7).

 

Fluid and electrolytes rehydrate 

Exercising muscles generate heat and this heat needs to be transferred to the environment to prevent overheating. The body does this by circulating blood to the extremities and allowing heat to escape to the environment through convection and through sweat. When you sweat, you lose water and depending on the condition, the amount of water lost can be quite significant. As humans don’t have the capacity to store water for long periods of time, water that is lost needs to be replaced to prevent symptoms of dehydration. Some symptoms of dehydration include irritability, inability to concentrate, fatigue and a headache. Sweat also contains electrolytes, like sodium and potassium, which then need to be replaced. Electrolytes are minerals that are dissolved in your body’s fluids that help to regulate fluid retention (8). Bioteen’s Recovery is a ready to mix drink that when mixed with water as per the instructions can form part of a rehydration strategy after an exercise session.

 

Our supplements are safe 

At Bioteen, we take safety very seriously because we are committed to creating a safe and reliable supplement range that all teens can use with peace of mind. When choosing a supplement, especially for a rapidly growing and developing population like teen’s, it is vital to look for supplements that have used third party certified ingredients. Like Bioteen. As the supplement industry is currently not regulated, manufacturers are not obligated to disclose every ingredient they put in their products which can be a scary thought for parents, who only want the best for their teens! Bioteen believes in full transparency, not only do we source all the raw materials ourselves but to put your mind at ease we have also carefully selected third party certified contract manufacturers to produce our products. This means that you can be guaranteed that all the ingredients in the Bioteen range are safe to consume.

 

The bottom line

Having a practical solution to post exercise recovery makes everyone’s lives easier. Not only does it reduce the need for excessive amounts of planning, but also delivers a precise dose of all the right nutrients to hit three of the most common recovery needs: Repair, refuel and rehydrate. Bioteen’s Recovery does exactly that in a tasty way that parents and teens alike can trust.
