Torq Recovery

TORQ recovery is a highly advanced post-exercise nutritional drink formulation that has been designed to repair, recharge and refuel fatigued muscle tissue after heavy exercise.

TORQ's unique matrix of Glucose Polymers, Fructose and Whey Protein Isolate stimulate the rapid absorption of carbohydrate to re-stock vital glycogen stores. TORQ's active ingredients, D-Ribose, HMB, L-Glutamine and blend of carefully selected vitamins and minerals work together to repair and recharge over-stressed muscle fibres. We believe 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.

It is generally accepted that consuming carbohydrate and protein at a 3:1 ratio within 15 minutes of finishing exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis (numerous authors have confirmed this). In other words, it will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than consuming carbohydrate alone and/or waiting until this 15-minute window of opportunity has passed. It is also generally accepted that whey protein is faster acting and available more quickly than any other kind of protein, thus it provides the amino acids necessary for muscle repair with little delay. TORQ recovery represents this 3:1 blend of carbohydrate and high quality whey protein.

It is TORQ's unique blend of D-Ribose, HMB, L-Glutamine, vitamins and minerals that sets it apart from other recovery products on the market. D-Ribose and HMB are particularly expensive ingredients and it is not unusual for nutrition companies to claim that their products contain these components, whilst providing too small a dose to have a significant effect.

TORQ ribose rapidly re-charges the muscle cell with energy, whilst HMB acts like a bionic protein, helping to protect the muscle structure against muscle damage and quickly building new tissue that has been stimulated through the training process. It helps your muscles to grow.

L-Glutamine is present in the more advanced recovery products on the market and there's good reason for it. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, in a large part because it is needed a lot by the brain, intestines, kidneys, lungs and immune system and also because you can manufacture your own. However, if you leave your body to produce its own supply, it will break down muscle tissue in order to make it available. Logic dictates that this is not desirable when you are a training athlete. Therefore, supplementation with L-Glutamine immediately after exercise stops the body scavenging for an alternative supply and eating into your well-earned muscle. It also ensures that plenty of L-Glutamine is available to fuel the immune system. Numerous studies have considered the effects of L-Glutamine supplementation on immune function and although the findings are mixed, there appears to be enough evidence to support its worth*. Couple the benefits of L-Glutaimine with HMB and it's clear that there are huge gains to be achieved by taking a supplement containing both of these.

Finally, the vitamins and minerals we blend into TORQ recovery are comprehensive. Heavy exercise takes an inevitable toll on the body and our recovery formulation wouldn't be complete without a generous serving of these essential micro-nutrients.

Press Reviews

220 Triathlon

One of the more expensive recovery drinks, Torq has provided us with the classic chocolate and orange flavour. Sadly, the resulting taste is fairly basic, with the orange edge ruining the fresh cocoa flavour. Combined with the slightly synthetic ‘chemical’ aftertaste, it isn’t the easiest drink to swallow.

It has an about average energy content at 391.5kcal, with a similar grading on carbohydrate content (60.4g) as other drinks. When mixed with the suggested quantity of water (500ml), this also comes in at an average 14% carbohydrate concentration. Protein content is quite high, though, providing around 25% of what a 70kg male endurance athlete would require.

Interestingly, a greater attempt to assist rehydration has been considered with this product, which weighs in with a sodium content of 430mg. Finally, there are also a number of vitamins thrown in, generally at the level of 12% of your RDA, just in case you’re not eating a balanced diet.

Bike Radar

Torq Recovery Strawberries & Cream - Torq’s Wimbledon flavour post ride powder mixes easily and contains all the stuff you need (carbs, protein, HMBs, L Glutamine, Ribose) but none of the artificial stuff you don’t want. The price is okay, it's also available in Banana & Mango and Chocolate Orange, and there's a range of tub sizes.

Verdict: Decent post ride drink with no colours, artificial sweeteners or preservatives"
