What is Zeke’s Recovery Protein?

Zeke’s Protein is an all-natural, all-in-one, post-workout recovery formula approved by All-Pro Running Back Ezekiel Elliott. It’s a blend of whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, micellar casein and carbohydrates for optimal muscle repair, and lean muscle development.

When should I take Zeke's Recovery Protein?

We recommend consuming the Zeke's Protein immediately following a workout in order to take in key nutrients to help kick start recovery.

Why did you add carbohydrates to this formula?

Studies show that consuming carbohydrates after exercise assists with muscle recovery. During exercise, your body uses glycogen, a compound made of carbohydrates, for energy. Replenishing the depleted muscle glycogen is critical for preventing muscle breakdown which improves recovery and future exercise performance. Zeke’s Protein provides a carbohydrate source from organic cane sugar, brown rice syrup and maltodextrin to help replenish muscle glycogen levels.  

What is the benefit of including three different sources of protein in Zeke’s Recovery Protein?

Protein is absorbed at different rates in the body. Whey protein isolate and hydrolysate are absorbed quickly and are ideal for fast muscle recovery after intense exercise. Micellar casein is absorbed at a slower rate and provides the benefits of muscle repair long after the other protein sources have been digested. This is why we added three sources of protein in this formula – whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate and micellar casein, to provide the benefits of sustained muscle recovery and improved strength.
