Tailored to the needs of female athletes, the Osmo Women's Protein Singles 12 Count Box contains single serving protein packets for post workout muscle synthesis and recovery. Developed by Dr. Stacy Sims, an accomplished triathlete and road cyclist, this post workout protein mix is catered toward female athletes, with the approach that Women are not small men. That's not to say that women don't have the same athletic potential as their male counterparts, but she's specifically referring to the physiological differences, mainly hormonal fluctuations, that require a different approach to post workout recovery. Until recently, post workout protein mixes were made for the needs of men, with male research and testing performed to back up products' performance claims. As such, women's supplements were given a shrink and pink treatment, with pretty colored packaging, scaled down calories, added soy protein, and maybe a bit of added calcium. Not here. The Women's Protein mix approaches post workout recovery for female athletes in a much different manner than the competition. Since it's tailored to the needs of female athletes, the Women's Protein mix is designed to counteract the effects of the menstrual cycle on recovery. Namely, muscle repair and glycogen restoration is inhibited by progesterone and estrogen. As such, this post workout protein mix addresses these physiological realities by reducing hormonal influences on recovery, as well as promoting muscle synthesis and optimizing training adaptations. This post workout protein mix comes in White Mocha and Honey Spice flavors. Both are packaged in single serving packets for grab and go convenience. Simply open a packet and dissolve it in 8 12 ounces of room temp or chilled water for best results.
