The Scoop On New Rocky Road 2:1:1 Recovery(TM)

AURORA, ILLINOIS – JULY 7TH. If you thought Optimum Nutrition’s (ON) rapid replenishment and recovery formula was ideal for refueling depleted muscle glycogen while promoting post-workout recovery, the new Rocky Road flavor of 2:1:1 Recovery™ adds rich, creamy taste to the mix.

“We wanted to take the guesswork out of stacking the carbohydrates and proteins that serious athletes need immediately after training,” said Rachel Hopkins, a food scientist at ON’s Research Laboratory in Aurora. “The 2:1:1 carbohydrate ratio of glucose polymers and waxy maize starch to sucrose and fructose is designed to replenish spent glycogen while the 2:1:1 ratio of whey protein isolates to micellar casein and egg albumen provides fast, intermediate and slowly digesting proteins. An additional 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine boosts the branched chain amino acid content to enhance muscle building support.” The new Rocky Road flavor of this scientifically formulated recovery supplement is now available nationwide.

Optimum Nutrition has been a leading formulator, manufacturer and distributor of premium nutritional supplements for decades. Recognized for quality and innovation, the company maintains two distinct brands – Optimum Nutrition and American Body Building – each offering a comprehensive line of liquid, powder, energy bar, tab and cap products. The company owns and operates its own cGMP approved manufacturing facilities to assure unsurpassed consistency in taste, mixability, purity and quality.
