June 11, 2014 — Klean Athlete, a line of NSF Certified for Sport nutritional supplements for athletes, is proud to announce the expansion of its product offerings with the addition of KLEAN RECOVERY, a milk-chocolate protein powder blend formulated to optimize muscle recovery by providing a scientifically sound ratio of carbohydrate to protein for use immediately after exercise. In alignment with the Klean Athlete mission, this product is formulated for athletes who want to reach peak performance through optimal health.
“Nutrient timing is crucial to an athlete’s recovery process to repair muscle tissue following high-volume and endurance or resistance exercise,” Andrew Halpner, Ph.D., head of Klean Athlete R&D, said. “KLEAN RECOVERY is formulated for athletes who want to help support muscle protein synthesis, restore glycogen stores that have been depleted in both the muscle and liver, and support the anabolic phase post-exercise.”
Studies suggest that protein sources may be an important consideration and the ease and speed with which they are absorbed may play an important role in recovery. In addition to a 4:1 ratio (carbohydrates to protein) KLEAN RECOVERY contains a combination of whey protein isolate and a unique hydrolyzed marine protein. The hydrolyzed marine protein has been shown to be easily digested and quickly absorbed and is rich in Amino Acids such as Methionine, Histidine and Arginine —all crucial elements for muscle building and nitrogen balance.
“We’re extremely excited to launch Klean Recovery as our first product of 2014,” said Timothy J. Monk, Jr., SVP of Sales and Marketing for Klean Athlete, avid endurance athlete, and Ironman competitor. “The Klean Athlete line is designed to support the healthy lifestyles and training habits of athletes, so, naturally, we felt it was crucial to add a product that promotes muscle recovery so our athletes can continue pushing it to the limit.”
In addition to the existing Klean Athlete nutritional supplements, KLEAN RECOVERY recently underwent a meticulous testing and verification process to receive the esteemed NSF Certified for Sport certification, which ensures that it is free of banned substances. Recognized by major sports organizations including the NFL, MLB, NHL and PGA, the NSF Certified for Sport program was developed in response to the concerns of athletes, coaches, team owners and others about finding banned substances in sports nutrition products.
