CNP Professional Pro Recover Review


CNP's recovery drink is one of the tastier examples on the market

There are a huge range of sports nutrition drink products on the UK market and by-and-large, they all feature similar recipes and nutritional benefit. This means the decision of which brand to choose mainly comes down to how it tastes and sits on the stomach.

CNP Professional, a firm originally focused on bodybuilding but has broadened out into other sports, is the choice of Team Sky and British Cycling, so we thought their recovery drink would be well worth a try.

The formula includes glucose, hydrolysed whey (an easily and quickly digested protein), whey isolate (with over 90 per cent protein), as well as Vitamins C and E as antioxidants to rid the body of Free Radicals. What all this means is that it’s great as a post-training supplement to kick start recovery, replace lost nutrients and build muscle.

Because of the protein, recovery drinks can often taste powdery or salty, but CNP’s strawberry concoction is just like a lovely thick milkshake that’s not at all a chore to get down after a hot training session. The price is a little steep for 16 servings, but for natural taste and quality ingredients it’s hard to beat.


A high quality recovery drink that works well and, crucially, tastes great.
