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 62.5g Vita serving has plenty of the all-natural essential stuff to kick start your recovery.(17,18)
Mix a single 62.5g sachet with 300ml of cold water or your favourite milk & shake until smooth.
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. Just add more water if you want to loosen the mix.
By simply mixing our recovery super-shakes with your favourite milk, you can achieve upto 23g protein per serving.
We use the finest quality Whey Protein Isolate in our SuperBerry mix.
A complete protein that contains all 9 essential amino acids for muscle repair, Whey Protein Isolate contains 90% Protein derived from Milk and has the added benefit of a very low lactose content.
Whey Protein Isolate digests quickly, efficiently and is rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) proven to play a major role in promoting muscle growth and recovery after resistance and endurance exercise. (54-56)
And with less than 1% Lactose it is the superior choice for refuelling your muscles without the gastric bloat!

SuperBerries for super recovery!
Raspberry, Acai, Cherry & Blackcurrant - Vita's mix of nature’s finest Super-berries are carefully blended to help reduce inflammation & restore balance after any workout. Picked at their ripest & freeze dried to lock in all their super nutrients, this Super-berry blend is sure to make your taste buds & aching legs super happy.
Zingy & vibrant. A recent study has discovered that phytochemicals in raspberries, which give them their ruby colour, guards against exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) after a strenuous session and speeds up recovery.(63,64) It’s these powerful antioxidants that support the body in decreasing the oxidative damage from free radicals and fight inflammation.
Tart & invigorating. Native to The Bazilian Amazon, Acai berries contain high amounts of antioxidants (10x that of blueberries), which may reduce oxidative stress after exercise, speeding up recovery from muscle damage. (65,66)
If consumed daily, these tart powerhouses may also help reduce joint pain associated with repetitive strenuous activity. (67)
The beneficial effects of sour cherry juice on muscle strength & soreness are well documented within preliminary studies. (58-50) Incorporating cherry in to your recovery regime may be a step in the right direction to improved performance & a way to help reduce the dreaded DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
Brimming with vitamins, this British super-berry can lower lactate accumulation during running & cycling, allowing you to go on for longer without feeling the burn. They improve blood flow and nutrient delivery, which is key for repairing muscles and removing lactate. Plus, their antioxidants protect against oxidative stress and reduce tissue damage. (68-70)
Adapt & thrive
Each Vita serving is enriched with 400mg of Panax Ginseng, a herbal adaptogen that has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Adaptogens are a unique class of healing plants believed to help balance, restore and protect the body after periods of exertion or stress.
A full review of human studies suggest the use of Panax Ginseng can improve fatigue, energy, and motivation.(71) Preliminary studies suggest that Ginseng might help you recover better from exercise and this is especially true if your exercise program shifts in intensity, or provides a unique stress that your muscles and body are not used to. (72,75,76)
This super root may also help regulate blood sugar levels, enhance brain function & improve your mood. (73,74)
A great boost for recovery & your overall health & well-being!
Rehydrate & Re-balance
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)
