Fuel your Recovery.

 

As part of your active lifestyle or as the ultimate Recovery shake.

Fuelling for exercise is well understood, but for any workout that lasts longer than 90 minutes it is essential that you fuel for your recovery too. (30,31) The best way to do this is with 100% natural & delicious real food, with the optimal balance of Carbohydrates and Protein. (16-18)

 

Fuelling your recovery means you should aim to rehydrate, replenish glycogen stores & start to rebuild muscle within the first 30 minutes after exercise. (30)


Your muscles store energy in the form of glycogen that is released when you exercise. When you work hard your muscles' stores of glycogen are depleted & this is known as the Glycogen Debt. To optimise recovery it is essential to top up these stores - the quicker the better. Glycogen stores are built up by eating glucose and that means that carbohydrates are your best friends at this time.(30) With a Carbohydrate:Protein ratio of 3:1, each 67g Nova serving has plenty of the all-natural essential stuff to kick start your recovery.(17,18)

How to make a perfectly blended Shake:

Either mix a single 67g sachet or 2 level-scoops with 300ml of cold water or your favourite plant-based milk & shake well. 

Aim to drink within 30 minutes of finishing exercise.

Once mixed, keep refrigerated & consume within 24 hours. Simple. 

We recommend using a shaker bottle with a mixer ball for optimal mixing

 

Shaking them with 300mls cold water makes a rewardingly thick & smooth recovery shake. If you’re after something a little more thirst quenching, just add more water until you achieve your preferred thickness. 

 

By simply mixing our recovery super-shakes with your favourite milk, you can achieve up to 23g protein per serving.
 

Always take care to fully reseal our 10-Serve pouches after opening & shake contents well before use.

Cane Sugar, Complete Plant Protein Blend (Pea, Rice, Pumpkin), Freeze Dried Banana Powder (18%), Maize Starch, Cocoa Powder (10%),Coconut Water Powder, Maca Root Powder, Pink Himalayan Salt, Cinnamon Powder.

About Protein

 

The Complete Package

 

Nova is made with a careful blend of plant-based protein that delivers a powerful complete amino acid profile….Pea, Rice & Pumpkin protein... the winning combo.

 

Pumpkin protein contains all 9 essential amino acids & is packed with minerals & antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties - great to relieve sore muscles & joints.(53)

 

Rice protein is high in many essential amino acids, including cysteine and methionine, but is low in lysine.

 

Pea protein is complimentarily rich in lysine and contains an impressive amount of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCCAs) which have been shown to build muscle, decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness.(54-56)

 

Blended together they create a rich & full amino acid profile – 13.5g of complete plant-based protein per serve to effectively repair muscles & kick start your recovery.

Nova is enriched with freeze dried Banana, a nutritional powerhouse, packed with easily digested, energy-rich carbohydrates, heart-healthy potassium, magnesium & anti-oxidants - all inducing a strong anti-inflammatory effect & improved metabolic recovery.(57)

 

Cocoa-tastic

Rich & dark Cocoa is at the heart of Nova's indulgent taste & silky texture. Not only does this wonderful sustainable ingredient transform this shake into a rewarding treat, but thanks to the naturally occurring polyphenols & flavanols within the cocoa beans, it offers multifold health benefits including reduced inflammation, improved blood flow, reduced cholesterol levels & improved heart and brain health. (58) Tryptophan within each cocoa bean also helps to make serotonin which contributes to feelings of happiness & well-being. (36,37)

 

We just knew Chocolate was the answer!

 

Adapt & thrive

Maca Root (Lepidium meyenii) hails from the high Andes mountains of Peru and has been used as a caffeine-free, plant-based performance enhancer since the days of the Inca warriors. A recognised adaptogen, this 100% natural vitamin & mineral rich plant has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory properties to assist the body in it's response to stress (59-62) and potentially may boost sporting endurance if taken daily. (43, 44).

With 1000mg Maca per serve, Nova will sooth your recovery..adapt & thrive!

 

Rehydrate & Replace electrolytes

You can loose up to a litre of sweat per hour & upto 900mg sodium per litre of sweat. We always recommend taking on added electrolytes as you exercise and continuing to replace these as part of your recovery to restore balance.(38,39)
