This drink is designed to recharge your muscles both during and after exercise, giving you 167 calories of energy in a 500ml mix (a standard water bottle), including nearly 30g of carbs. You also get 6g of protein, so it’s a 5:1 carbs: protein mix, give or take. That’s enough stats.
What makes the Multipower drink different from most is that it contains PeptoPro. Huh? Here’s the science bit… PeptoPro is a pre-digested milk protein. Rather than being packed with fully formed proteins, it contains peptides, built from amino acids, that your body links together to form proteins – there’s no need to break them down first, saving time and energy. Geddit? That all seems logical
Pre-digested proteins usually taste bitter, but this doesn’t – perhaps not too surprising because there is a lot of sucrose in here. You might have your own opinion, of course, but we found the orange flavour really palatable. It’s also pretty light on your stomach – it’s easy to gulp down like a normal energy drink. We like it a lot and have had good results over the past couple of weeks – energy levels have been high and we’ve had no worries with recovery between rides.
You get 17 servings per tub, which works out at under 80p a go if you get it at the £13.50 discount price.
Tasty carb drink with peptides to boost your recovery quickly
