Overview: Mike's Mix all-natural recovery drinks are intended to be consumed immediately after strenuous endurance and strength training workouts. Consistent use will greatly reduce post-workout soreness and replenish energy reserves. Our simple formula is consistent with current research and its effectiveness will stand toe to toe with any other product on the market. Tastes great in water, milk and fruit smoothies all without artificial sweeteners or flavoring.
Flavor: Want additional flavor in your Mike’s Mix Recovery Drink? Try our rich and delicious chocolate! Mixed with water or milk, the flavor will appeal to any chocolate lover.
Mixing Instructions: Mix 2 scoops of Mike’s Mix Recovery Drink in 1-2 cups of liquid. Use 3 scoops for workouts that exceed one hour. Mixing with less liquid will produce a richer, stronger flavor. Tastes great with water but some customers prefer to mix with milk, juice or even coffee.
Each 8lb bag has 53 servings (2 scoops = 68 grams)
I look forward to my recovery drink after every long workout! Review by avianodan
I am an avid runner and cyclist and typically do one or more workouts six days per week. Over the last couple of years I have ordered around 100 pounds of the chocolate recovery drink. Initially, I was looking for a recovery drink while doing P90X that wouldn't break the bank. Now, after every hour-plus workout I immediately prepare my drink using an immersion blender with water, ice, and a banana if available. If I am not home I simply mix with a blender bottle and water. I love this stuff and recommend it to everyone seeking a recovery drink. (Posted on 10/13/14)

Over the past 50 years, an extraordinary amount of research has focused on sports nutrition. Unfortunately, “common knowledge” can be heavily influenced by supplement marketing that is often unsupported or even contradictory to the research. At Mike’s Mix, our goal is to bridge that gap between common knowledge and research. All functional ingredients have studies to support their safety and effectiveness. The following are links directly to the peer reviewed research used to formulate this product. If there is research to support omission of an ingredient that our competition may use, we have also included those links.
1. Short-term recovery from prolonged exercise: exploring the potential for protein ingestion to accentuate the benefits of carbohydrate supplements.
2. Dietary strategies to promote glycogen synthesis after exercise.
3. Role of carbohydrate in physical activity.
4. Glycogen resynthesis after exercise: effect of carbohydrate intake.
5. Muscle glycogen storage after prolonged exercise: effect of the glycemic index of carbohydrate feedings.
6. Effects of recovery beverages on glycogen restoration and endurance exercise performance.
7. Dietary protein to support anabolism with resistance exercise in young men:
8. Postexercise carbohydrate-protein supplementation improves subsequent exercise performance and intracellular signaling for protein synthesis.
9. Sugar and exercise: its importance in athletes.
10. Fructose and galactose enhance postexercise human liver glycogen synthesis.
