High GI Carbohydrate & Protein Formula to Aid Rapid Recovery After Exercise
Updated formulation with an optimal 20g protein
Providing rapidly digestible protein and amino acids to support muscle protein synthesis for growth and rebuild. Soy has a complete amino acid profile to which we have added additional leucine to make the formulation even more effective. Leucine is an amino acid which is known to switch on the signalling for muscle protein synthesis, amplifying the affect.
Helps replenish your energy stores with 23g carbohydrate
Carbohydrate is your body's main fuel for moderate to high intensity exercise. Even if you fuel well during training you can still only absorb around 60g of carbohydrate per hour, meaning that demand will outstrip the supply of energy. This shortfall is met by using your glycogen stores, but these must be replenished after training if you are to perform well in your next session.
Endorsed by the World's elite endurance athletes
SiS REGO Rapid Recovery powdered drinks range helps your muscles recover and rebuild. Use immediately after exercise to increase your body's ability adapt to increased training demands to become stronger as quickly as possible, leaving you ready for your next session.

Sir Chris Hoy Advises On Recovery Nutrition & Why It's Important:
Recovery is hugely important and a key element of training/nutrition plans. It becomes increasingly important when:
1) Training for prolonged periods of time multiple times a week
2) Training at high intensities multiple times a week
3) Training/ racing multiple times per day
4) Competing in multi-day events
Endurance exercise and high intensity training places a huge physiological stress on the body, which causes the breakdown of muscle proteins and reduced post exercise glycogen (carbohydrate) levels. Recovery after exercise is essential to:
1) Stimulate protein synthesis (make new proteins) and repair damaged muscles
2) Replace energy stores used up
3) Rehydrate and replace lost electrolytes
4) Enable muscles to adapt to training for enhanced future performance
Recovery should start within the 30 minutes post exercise window when the body is particularly receptive to carbohydrate, protein and fluid intake. As consuming food at this time isn’t always practical, SiS has developed simple and convenient options to make refueling easier and to optimise recovery.

Looking to up my cycling fitness levels and particularly my muscle strength to fight encroaching disabilities I was delighted to see that this product includes leucine, which is a top-level muscle building product. It also contains a full range of minerals and vitamins, one serving containing from 15% to 57% of the recommended daily allowances across a range of 16 vitamins and minerals.
I used a standard stick blender and jug to prepare the product, since an incident with a ill fitting shaker lid. The REGO powder dissolved well and the taste - ours was chocolate - was perfectly acceptable.
I mixed it with water, as recommended as mixing it with milk slows down the absorption rate and the product is obviously meant to be absorbed quickly, the standard dose being 50g of powder for 500ml of water.
The maltodextrin carbohydrates are easily digestible and unlike some other products, particularly those that contain lactose, there were no unpleasant side effects, .
In summary, a cost-effective premium product, suitable for dairy intolerant users. There are many post - exercise rehydration and recovery products on the market, this one does stand out as a very good buy.
The SiS Rego appealed as it includes carbs as well as protein, and as a drink is more easily digestible than solids. The taste and texture is pretty good, although I have to say I don't particularly look forward to it (hence it dropped a star), but the performance seems spot on. I have to say my preferred recovery combo remains a protein bar straight after the ride, and then my carbs as I rehydrate after a shower, but for ease of use, this shake is definitely worth a look.
The product itself I have to take it's word that it's doing what it's supposed to. It's not a miracle recovery solution that magically makes you able to do twice the distance, instead it's an aid to what has to already be a healthy well balanced routine. I have found slightly less fatigue since I've started using it around 2 weeks ago, particularly if I'm running two days in a row.
The taste isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. I bought the strawberry one, it has that typical artificial nothing like strawberry, strawberry flavour, which is neither overly offensive nor particularly nice, but then, you're not exactly drinking these for their wonderful flavour. It is easy to drink which I think is about as much as you can ask for in a product like this, 500ml goes down no problem after a long run.
My only minor issue with it is that it sticks to the corners of the shaker and takes some crazy shaking moves to get it all to mix. It recommends stirring with a spoon at first but that's even worse as all the powder sticks to the spoon and then you have to find a way to scrape it off that back into the shaker. I've found the best approach is to add some water first, then the 50g of powder then the rest of the water before putting the lid on the shaker.
Bottom Line: Taste and texture isn't good, but it does what it says on the tub.
