We review the new recovery drink formula from For Goodness Shakes.

These shakes have been on the market for a few years. We’ve tried them after hard sessions and they do seem to help us get ready to train again. This updated version has a new Procovery formula, which is FGS’s blend of vitamins and minerals. Its claimed effects include helping your metabolism and supporting your immune system. The list of ingredients is sound, though we’d argue that the protein and sugars do as much to keep you healthy and help you recover as the special nutrient mix, so if you already have a well balanced diet you don’t need to worry. But it’s a convenient way to refuel top up your vitamins.

Verdict
Nothing you couldn’t get from a good diet, but convenient and tasty.
