RECOVERY

HELPING TEENS KICK-START RECOVERY AFTER EXERCISE


Why Bioteen Created This Supplement (Understanding the Problem)

Getting the right nutrition after exercise restores energy levels and reduces fatigue, helping the body to repair muscles and build strength for future training sessions.

At Bioteen, we created Recovery to provide active teens and those participating in competitive sports with a nutritional supplement designed to support the body’s recovery process so that athletes are ready for their next training session or game.

What Is Recovery & Who Should Be Taking It

Recovery is a ready to mix dietary supplement that has been formulated with a precise combination of fast-acting protein, carbohydrates and micronutrients to support post-exercise recovery so that you can be ready for your next training session or game.

Recovery is ideal for teen athletes looking to provide their body with additional nutritional support to ensure that they refuel, rebuild and rehydrate post exercise.

The Science (How Recovery Works)

The three steps of post-exercise recovery nutrition are Refuel, Rebuild and Rehydrate.

The athlete’s body has one primary goal in mind after strenuous exercise and that is to replace glycogen storage. Eating carbohydrate as part of the recovery meal increases plasma glucose and insulin concentration and makes it possible for the body to resynthesize glycogen at a higher rate.

Consuming carbohydrates in the first few hours immediately after strenuous exercise also helps to restore immune function. This is especially important in situations where the recovery duration between two consecutive exercise sessions is short, which is often the case for athletes.

Even a simple cardio session results in muscle breakdown, so protein and amino acids are needed to help maximize muscle repair. Depending on the type and intensity of exercise, and the total calories needed for recovery, a 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein is usually recommended.

Adequate fluids help regulate body temperature and blood pressure and transport energy and nutrients throughout the body. It is essential to allow the body to achieve balance and maintain the process of recovery by replenishing any fluids lost during exercise.


Recovery contains the right ratio of high-quality carbohydrates and protein to provide the body with the right nutrition needed post exercise. Providing the body with the correct nutrients at the correct time can affect your recovery rate. In additional to the correct nutrition, a healthy diet comprised of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, coupled with sufficient sleep, is essential for the body’s recovery process.

Ingredient Transparency & Quality (Not All Ingredients Are Created Equally)

Bioteen showcases a relentless commitment to a superior quality product that is both ethical and safe for consumption in the extremely important phase of the lives of teens.

Ingredient quality is a core focus for us at Bioteen because better ingredients yield products that are highly effective and safe. That’s why Bioteen has set the bar high when it comes to the evaluation of our ingredients, from how different forms of ingredients work in the body to where they are sourced and how they have been manufactured. Bioteen has partnered with international suppliers who share our beliefs for quality, purity and scientific research.

  • Ingredient safety: All ingredients used in Bioteen are GRAS certified (Generally Recognised as Safe) as published by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Scientifically Researched: we only use ingredients that have been tested in scientific studies to be safe and effective for their intended purpose. 
  • Allergen control: Bioteen products have been formulated with a careful consideration for consumers with specific allergies and sensitivities.
  • Branded ingredients: our key active ingredients are all branded, i.e. trademarked-protected, ingredients. Branded ingredients are manufactured to higher quality standards than generic products and offer higher levels of purity, transparency in their manufacturing as well as clinical research supporting their efficacy. Branded ingredients often provide scientific and educational support that makes it easy for a consumer to learn more about the science behind the specific ingredient used in the making of Bioteen products.

At Bioteen, we have a commitment to quality throughout our entire manufacturing process. Because we source all our raw materials ourselves, we have total control over what goes into Bioteen products. Our manufacturing is then undertaken by carefully selected contract manufacturers who are third-party certified.

Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certification: CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the Food and Drug Administration “FDA”. is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. The cGMP acronym originated in the USA, where the US food and Drug Administration wanted to impress upon manufacturers the importance and need for “continuous” improvement to their approach to product quality.

Quality Manufacturing Stamp

Everything that goes into our product is thoroughly tested and sampled by our food scientist and owner. We know and understand the importance of everything that goes into our products and what functionality it serves to the teenage body, scientifically testing every ingredient to ensure a safe and ethical product.

This testing and lab sampling has led us to where we are today (and trust us, there have been some interesting and awful concoctions that we have come up with), a superior quality and excellent tasting product that allows teenagers, with Bioteen, to own the whole day to support their diet. From breakfast to dinner, Bioteen’s product range is a vehicle for delivery for vitamins, minerals, stress minerals, prebiotics and whole food nutrition and other things that teens need.

Getting the right nutritional balance after exercise restores energy levels and reduces fatigue, helping the body to repair muscles and build strength for future workouts. Proteins, carbohydrates, and healthful fats are all essential for the body’s recovery.

The importance of recovery nutrition depends on the type and duration of exercise just completed, body composition goals and personal preferences. The goals of the recovery nutrition are to:

1 – Appropriately refuel and rehydrate the body.

2 – Promote muscle repair and growth.

Bioteen Recovery contains dairy-based Whey Protein, making it suitable for vegetarians but not vegans.

Sports drinks provide mainly carbohydrates and electrolytes, which can help hydration and muscle glycogen replenishment. However, they lack proteins which is important to stimulate protein synthesis in muscles for muscle repair. Proteins and carbohydrates work synergistically to promote muscle glycogen replenishment.

Bioteen Recovery contains whey protein. Whey protein is an ideal protein choice for recovery because it has the highest biological value among all supplemental protein sources. This means that it is well utilized by the body for repair of body tissues. Whey Protein is also a fast-acting protein source, digested and absorbed more quickly than other proteins and provides a full range of essential amino acids. Whey protein also contains important chains of amino acids called whey micro fractions that confer health benefits like immune and antioxidant support

 CriteriaTypical Recovery SupplementBioteen Recovery
Product efficacyNot always effective because they don’t address all elements of post-exercise recovery.An effective formulation that combines ingredients that optimise all recovery elements: rehydration, refueling and muscle repair.
Complete ProteinsTypically based on whey protein although incomplete protein sources for the purpose of recovery are increasingly common (e.g. isolated amino acids).Based entirely on whey protein concentrate which provides a full spectrum of amino acids for optimal muscle repair.
Carbohydrate for energy refuelingUsually contain sources like sucrose which can cause digestive stress.Maltodextrin (glucose polymers) which absorbs efficiently without stressing the digestive system.
Micronutrient replacementNo. Micronutrients rarely added.Yes, to replace micronutrient losses. Contains a high-quality multivitamin (Fortitech®) that supplies 11 vitamins which are involved in energy metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Added immunonutrientRarely addedContains 1g of added L-Glutamine, an immunonutrient to maintain immune function.
Added MineralsYes. Usually only electrolytes to aid rehydration.Contains electrolytes along with 7 added minerals, including trace minerals to aid normal muscle function, normal protein synthesis and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
