OTE Super Protein has been developed by the sports nutritionists at OTE Sports for the ‘serious’ performance athlete who is doing multiple sessions’ a day. Recovery is about function and fuel and can be considered as the ability to be able to perform again following previous exercise.

Active Ingredients and their functions

Due to its strong-branched chain amino acid (BCAAs) profile and ease of absorption, Whey Protein is arguably one of the most popular sports nutrition supplements used for muscle recovery and adaptation. Whey protein has been shown to increase muscle protein synthesis, support fat burning, boost the immune system, improve insulin sensitivity, and decrease appetite. Additionally, whey concentrate is shown to boost production of glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant.

 

  • Leucine is a branched chain amino acid important for protein synthesis and muscle growth. When ingested in high amounts, such as with whey protein supplementation, there is a greater stimulation of protein synthesis to speed recovery and adaptation to exercise (stress).
  • HMB is seen as an anti-catabolic agent (reduces muscle breakdown) rather than an anabolic agent (increases muscle mass) and a useful supplement for the purpose of reducing muscle wastage during intense or long periods of exercise. HMB supplementation is especially useful to athletes who are on a calorie restricted diet or endurance athletes where being lighter will have a significant role to play in performance.
  • The role of L-Glutamine in strengthening the gut lining is well known and can lead to benefits such as increased immunity, reduced allergies, improved nutrient absorption and better moods; key components for good health.

OTE Super Protein Recovery has purposely been developed to be low in carbohydrate. If additional carbohydrate is required after your workout we recommend you add 20g of OTE Carbo Booster to your drink. This may be necessary if you have undertaken a fasted or low carbohydrate workout, or your workout has been intense and carbohydrate depleting.


When should i use Super Protein?

Super Protein can be consumed at a number of different times:

1. Straight after intense exercise. This can be endurance or strength based. Remember to support the intake of protein with carbohydrates if wanting to do back to back endurance based training sessions.

2. To supply a high portion of protein before bed. This has been shown to help improve recovery overnight and is especially important when in intense, back to back periods of racing or training.

3. As a high protein snack between meals. You can optimise recovery by supplying the body with protein little and often throughout the day. Having a Super Protein drink as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack provides your body with a quality protein hit whilst also keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
