Key Benefits of Recovery Plus+ 

  • HMB for Muscular Repair and Growth
  • Beta-Alanine for Anaerobic Power
  • Phosphate Salts for Aerobic Development
  • High-Potassium, Antioxidant-Rich Cocoa

      How does it work?

      TORQ Recovery Plus+ is a hot cocoa drink containing HMB, Beta-Alanine and Sodium Phosphate that is to be taken twice daily. It doesn’t have to be mixed hot, but it really does make a great tasting cup of cocoa, so we advise that you take your time and enjoy this product. If you’re in a rush, add 2 level scoops of the powder to 250ml of fresh cold water in your mixer bottle and give it a good shake. Sugar can be added to sweeten further if required.

      TORQ Recovery Plus+ is designed to be taken continually during any high load training/racing period and is therefore ideal for use throughout the competitive season, or in the lead up to and during a training camp or cycling holiday. TORQ Recovery Plus+ can also be used as a peaking tool in the lead up to an important one-off event as a peaking tool. TORQ Recovery Plus+ can also deliver significant benefits to intermittent interval type activities/sports like track cycling, downhill mountain biking and team sports.

      Essentially HMB has anabolic benefits, so helps with muscular repair and development, whilst Beta-Alanine assists with the development of top-end power and lactic acid tolerance. Sodium Phosphate helps with the development of aerobic power. It is the interplay between HMB and Beta-Alanine that makes this product so exciting however, because Beta-Alanine exploits top-end power, which in turn results in micro-tears in the muscle structure and a fatigue stimulus to the anaerobic energy systems. HMB, with it’s anabolic properties then works to rapidly knit this fatigued muscle tissue back together and this is the very essence of the ‘training effect’. Fatigue – Compensation – Supercompensation. Beta-Alanine drives a larger fatigue stimulus and HMB creates a larger and quicker supercompensation.

      Directions of Use Get the most out of the products

      Mixing: Add 2 level scoops of TORQ Recovery+ powder to 1/3 of a mug of cold water and mix thoroughly into a thick paste using the thin end of a spoon. Add boiling water slowly whilst stirring and mix into a smooth hot beverage. Do NOT add hot water directly to the powdered ingredients.

      Dose: Drink 2 mugs of TORQ Recovery+ per day with at least 6 hours separation, as this will deliver the research-recommended daily doses of the high-potency nutrients most effectively.

      Variations: Unlike the standard TORQ Recovery Drink, using milk instead of water or adding sugar to this product will not affect its functionality. TORQ Recovery+ can also be made into a very palatable cold drink – just mix with cold water.

      Tingling: Beta-Alanine ingestion leads to a relatively short-term tingling sensation to the skin. This ‘flushing’ is a perfectly normal response to this nutrient and is harmless, so please don’t be alarmed!

      TORQ Recovery Plus+ should be consumed daily, even on rest days. Intermittent use of this product is not recommended. All of the nutrients in TORQ Recovery Plus+ need to be taken daily and in 2 divided doses to have maximum effect, as explained in the dosing instructions above. The research suggests that HMB and Sodium Phosphate will have a reasonably immediate effect, but many of the studies into Beta-Alanine supplementation suggest that the greatest benefits are likely to be gained once the amino acid has been in your system for a sustained period of time and most protocols have tested athletes after a loading phase of 4 weeks. That is not to say that benefits won’t be gained in less than 4 weeks, but if you have a particular goal in mind, you should aim to start consuming TORQ Recovery Plus+ at least 4-weeks before you want to get the performance benefits from it.
