TESTIMONIALS

SUPPLEMENT SCIENTISTS

This was a pretty intresting product, firstly because it is really niche for a local powerhouse milk company to really delve into the health and fitness segment with a protein recovery RTD (ready to drink). A massive thank you to @firstchoice.co.za for allowing us this opportunity we hope this review will be one of many.

With a lot of emphasis nowadays on taste, first choice really hits out of the park with a very old school milk chocolate taste that’s so undeniably good it makes me wonder why there’s no 1 litre options wink the texture is mouth watering and smooth ant it’s a treat once refrigerated.

The 2 sources of protein are form low fat milk and milk prtein which classes this as a slower digesting protein product which isn’t a nad thing at all as you will feel fuller for longer but and addition of whey would be perfect and make this one of the best protein recovery drinks to grace our local market. This product definitely has a load of potential for various types of variants such as a low carb option, zero carb option and maybe enven a mass gainer option.

Obviously this is a dip in the water for first choice but the nutritional info is really good as follows:

Protein 16.5g

Carbs 28g

Fat 5.3g

A host of B-vitamins

Calcium 436.5mg

The product really does replenish and improve recovery, so it’s deffinitely an effective product plus it’s being what it is to the best of its ability, a high protein RECOVERY RTD. The ratio of carbs and protein are ideal for recovery so this makes a great tasty post workout / activity drink that’s so convenient you’d be crazy not to have a few of these on hand.

Overall I am so impressed by @firstchoice.za it’s hard to even question their logic or direction. I do really hope to see more flavours and larger options when it comes to size and formulation but as it stands this is pretty much amazing, so simple yet so overlooked.

Rating 9/10

WHY YOU SHOULD DRINK RECOVERY

Exercise causes your body to lose energy and strength. Aerobic exercise such as running tends to deplete glycogen stores in your body and hydrate you. Anaerobic exercise such as weightlifting taxes muscle fibres, breaking or tearing them and making your body ache.

When you push through a tough workout, your muscles are constantly challenged, and their fibres begin to break down and sustain damage. The process of repairing synthesis, uses amino acids from protein to encourage healthy recovery and muscular growth.

If your exercise session is intensive or log enough, drinking a High-Protein Recovery Milk can shorten your recovery time, allevate muscle pain and even improve strength, power, body compostion and exercise performance.

I love First Choice Recovery Milk as it’s ready to drink and formulated with a high protein level.

Make sure to pack one for lunch

First choice recovery milk offers the ideal source of protein, whether you are a gym bunny like me, or whether you are taking it as a drink on the run. The recovery milk not only lessens the recovery period after a gym session for me, but its tastes amazing too.
