TORQ Recovery Drink is a highly advanced post-exercise nutritional drink formulation that has been designed to Rehydrate, Refuel, Repair and Recharge your fatigued physiology after heavy exercise. We call these the 4 R’s:
TORQ Recovery Drink has been designed to work as part of the highly comprehensive and thorough TORQ Recovery System. This system considers the level of activity you are performing and recommends concepts and products from the TORQ range to suit your physical loading in a cumulative fashion.

TORQ Recovery Drink powder is mixed with water to form a very smooth luxurious shake – the fluid content addressing the first of the 4 R’s, ‘hydration’. Our unique matrix of Glucose Polymers, Fructose (Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates) and Whey Protein Isolate stimulate the rapid absorption of carbohydrate to re-stock vital glycogen stores. Along with our use of high quality Whey Proteins, our active ingredients, D-Ribose, L-Glutamine and blend of carefully selected vitamins and minerals work together to repair and recharge over-stressed muscle fibres. D-Ribose in particular is unique to the TORQ brand and there is no other nutrient available on the market today that is capable of refreshing energy levels at the intra-cellular level. We consider TORQ recovery to be the most thorough and effective formulation of its kind on the market today – yet we flavour it NATURALLY and use no colours or artificial sweeteners. There is not a single ingredient within TORQ recovery’s formulation that isn’t derived from a natural source, or doesn’t naturally-occur within the human body.
TORQ recovery represents this 3:1 blend of Multiple Transportable Carbohydrates and high quality Whey Protein. Research suggests that consuming Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates and Whey Protein at a 3:1 ratio together immediately after exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis. In other words, the multi-consumption of Whey Protein, Glucose-Derivatives and Fructose-Derivatives will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than any other method. Research has also proven that Whey Protein is faster acting, more soluble and absorbed/synthesised more readily than any other kind of protein, thus it provides the amino acids necessary for muscle repair with little delay.
Consuming TORQ Recovery within 15 minutes of exercise completion to take advantage of the ‘glycogen storage window of opportunity’ is also essential. This is called the ‘non-insulin phase’ of carbohydrate absorption.
