    Tastes and Works Great

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent product for those working hard and trying to make gains in their fitness. It significantly aids in recovery and provides all the necessary nutrients to maintain and grow muscle and recover quicker. Trust the brand and the ingredients and it tastes great.

    Really Does Work

      Full agree with other reviews. Usually had significant soreness after longer 50+ mile rides even with stretching but this literally eliminated it. I would not recommend the orange cream flavor, I love orange cream sickle items but this just tastes weird, kind of chalky. Seems as though the other two favors are most popular, buying the tropical fruit flavor now as I love the product.

      Best Recovery I've Found

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the best recovery drink I've found. After a hard ride I have one serving. Even if I started to bonk at the end, Ultragen has me feeling better within a few minutes. Keeps me from getting sick as well which is huge, as it provides tons of nutrients when your immune system is at the lowest. I like the cappuccino flavor the most. I've tried the orange flavor too. It's good, but cappuccino is where it's at!

      Great so far!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Used for a month so far and it's quite good. I like the tropical punch flavor. Typically, I like Hammer Recoverite, but this product is just as good and possibly slightly better for recovery.

      Tastes Great and Works

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this recovery drink for after long days in the outdoors or tough sessions at the gym. The fruit punch flavor and the orange are both refreshingly different and taste great.

      Must use for endurance athletes

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This has become an essential part of my post workout routine. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm running, climbing, ski touring, or hitting the gym, Ultragen tastes good and seems to significantly reduce soreness the following day. If you're serious about doing hard workouts on consecutive days, this product is a must. I've sampled all the flavors, my current favorite is Cappuccino, but the Fruit Punch is a close second. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

      I don't use this after every ride...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      But when I do, boy do I need it. Normally I like to recover with real food, but sometimes a training ride or race is just so damn hard my body rejects everything. This is a tasty (all flavors really), easy to drink and chuck full of everything you could possibly need recovery drink. I highly recommend this over other recovery drink options, it's simply the best out there.

      Delicious & Nutritious

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've tried a good amount of the recovery products over the last several years & have found nothing that works better for me than Ultragen. I compete in lots of Endurance auto races every year & when getting out of the car after 2-3 hours at aerobic threshold you need everything you can to get yourself back ready to hop in the car in a few hours time. The formula they use is great for all the activities I participate in, I'll just mix it different depending on what I've been doing. After a big ride it's great to make a smoothie with the cappuccino flavor with milk, some extra protein, & a banana. Really like the different combos you can do with it.

      As great as every EFS product

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great product - provides electrolytes and protein for a post ride recovery powerhouse. It taste great too, not too strong, not too weak. Its actually a great value too.

      My review would have been expanded upon, but Backcountry pesters customers with emails about reviewing products - not good.

      Best when chilled

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This recovery drink was essential to me as I was training for a half marathon. I drank it after all of my long runs. Not only did it taste great but it was filling enough to not leave me searching for carbs. It also left my body feeling great after the runs where I couldn't even tell that I had just pushed my body the day before. It definitely helped with muscle recovery.

      I have the orange creamsicle and it was very good flavored. I like to call it my dreamsicle drink. :)

      Love this stuff

        After a big run anyone needs to get some good stuff to help recovery. First, this stuff has all great ingredients in terms of carbo/protein mix. Second, it tastes great (I like the cream sickle) - specially when ice cold. You almost feel it flow through your veins. I honestly feel this does great good. And if I have a big glass of this after a long run, I don't feel the need to binge on useless calories or other junk. I gotta get me some more! I also have this ready for me at aid stations in long races. Good way to get a quick 200 or more calories while hydrating. I have never NOT wanted to pound this at any aid station no mater how I feel - as long as it is ice cold!
