Musashi Recover Whey Protein Powder is a post-workout protein powder with added amino acids.
It aims to aid the recovery process by supplying extra amino acids – our “building blocks” for muscle.
Musashi is trusted Australian brand, established in 1987.
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey Protein is one of the two proteins found in milk.
It is absorbed faster than other forms of protein and notably increases muscle protein synthesis (1). This makes it great for post-workout consumption and general bodybuilding supplementation.
However, whey protein isolate (WPI) is the superior form.
Amino Acid Blend
Recover Whey Protein Powder also includes a variety of extra amino acids.
These include Lysine for aiding protein synthesis, and BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) for extra muscle growth and recovery.
BCAAs can decrease muscle-wasting cortisol levels after a workout, and rapidly replenish the BCAA levels in muscle for quicker growth and repair (2).
Who Takes It?
Musashi Recover Whey Protein Powder is geared towards all athletes seeking a post-workout supplement to assist recovery.
How To Take
Mix 2 level scoops with 250mL of water or milk, and consume after exercise.
Whey protein can sometimes worsen existing kidney or liver damage. Exercise caution if you already have kidney or liver conditions.
- Simple formula without unnecessary extras
- Added BCAAs for extra-fast muscle repair and growth
- No extra carbs or fat fillers
- Flavours available are Vanilla and Chocolate.
- Uses whey protein concentrate instead of whey protein isolate, which is superior.
- The no-frills formula means that no helpful extras like creatine are included, but this can be made up with other supplements.
Musashi continues its simple and effective theme going with Recover Whey Protein Powder.
It mixes pure Whey Protein Concentrate and BCAAs with some basic flavouring and no fillers.
As it skips on WPI, this makes for a cost-effective formula that does exactly what it claims to do: help you recover.
