Ultragen Recovery from First Endurance is a recovery powder for endurance athletes made from gluten- and lactose-free Whey Protein Isolate and Hydrolyzed Whey Protein. It completely dissolves in water and is absorbed quickly, rapidly delivering the precise nutrients the body needs in the crucial 30-minute post-exercise glycogen window to expedite muscle recovery.
With 20 grams of high-quality protein, 6 grams of glutamine, and 4.5 grams of branched-chain amino acids, Ultragen counteracts overtraining, decreases muscle damage, and rebuilds muscle for another day of training or competing.

Good, but I'll Stick With Recoverite
Pros dissolves quickly and completely
Cons starts to taste sickly sweet toward the end
I've tried the chocolate and orange flavors for Ultragen, and they're not bad, but I'll be sticking with Recoverite instead. Even watering the product down with an extra 4-6oz of water, when I still have 13-14 left to go it starts to taste sickly sweet. And this from someone who's got a major sweet tooth. Using milk or a milk substitute instead andor making more of an Ultragen shake makes it a lot better, but not always an option if I'm having my recovery drink in the car after a ride. I'll save this one for use after rides that end back at home, and use Recoverite to take on the road.
