This smoothie is specifically designed to aid in post-workout recovery. Each smoothie contains 4 grams of BCAA’s, 4 grams of glutamine as well as turmeric, tart cherry, and probiotics. BCAA’s refer to three branched-chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine which can promote muscle protein synthesis, increase muscle growth over time, as well as prevent fatigue. Glutamine makes up 61% of skeletal muscle in the body and taken supplementally, minimizes muscle breakdown and improves protein metabolism. Tart cherry and turmeric contain both anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants. Some athletes report an increase in energy and recovery by drinking these powerful ingredients, and research is becoming more readily available to support such claims. Any sort of physical activity puts stress on the body which can lead to a weakened immune system, but the addition of probiotics can lead to a strengthened immune system. Our CocoMo is a refreshing blend of freshly harvested Thai Young Coconut Water and Vega Sport® Mocha Protein powder.
