  • 142% Faster Absorption of BCAA for Muscle Fuel
  • Amino Acceleration System + 18g of Waxy Maize to Support Recovery

What is Amplified Recovery Protein XR™?
The protein that you have always wanted, but just didn't know it...until now! Amplified Recovery Protein XR™, the ultimate in Xtended Release formulas, is the ideal post-workout blend packed with both fast and slow proteins you need to optimally fuel and support muscle repair after every intense training session. Suitable for every athlete, the distinct protein composition targets two key actions of muscular activity: anabolism and recovery. Whether it's weight training or aerobic endurance, strenuous workouts cause damage to muscle tissue, so what you need is a protein that will help set the stage for quality repair and support for your muscles, and here it is! A dual action, extended release energy source that combines a fast-acting blend of technology-enhanced whey protein with slower-acting quality casein for long lasting muscle fuel. The unique form of whey protein is proven to deliver key amino acids into your blood better and faster than ordinary whey protein. With this faster-absorbing protein, you also get 142% faster absorption of BCAA into the blood stream, which can be taken up by your skeletal muscle where they may help preserve glycogen stores and reduce protein breakdown. Micronized protein and aminos are the solution to immediate fuel source that lasts up to a few hours, but the muscle refueling doesn't stop there. Then, waxy maize is used for rapid glycogen store replenishment, a critical muscle recovery component. Lastly, casein is included to provide a slow-digesting, sustained supply of amino acids over 7 hours that can help to significantly decrease protein breakdown. This crucial 25 gram whey and casein combination with 18 grams of waxy maize is designed to keep your muscles out of a catabolic state while continually delivering amino acids necessary to fuel muscles. Get full muscle coverage with Amplified Recovery Protein XR™ - the protein and carb formula with the right balance to support muscle recovery and anabolism immediately after workouts, even hours later.

The Amplified Recovery Protein XR™ Evolution
AMPlified to support and enhance metabolic phases of muscle activity and here's how: using cutting-edge technology and scientific research and expertise, this unique formulation was designed to be the ultimate protein for recovery support.

Micronized Protein and Amino Acids – This premium protein blend features micronized whey protein and leucine! Using MicroSorb™ Amino Technology, whey protein and amino acids in this formula have been pulverized into smaller particles that are easier to absorb. As a result, Amplified Recovery Protein XR™ is proven to deliver superior amino acid uptake compared to regular whey. That means more amino acids are available for your muscles to use as fuel! These vital amino acids all support proteins involved in muscle building, recovery and other processes crucial to your muscles.

  • Waxy Maize – Serves as a carbohydrate source to replace glycogen stores during the recovery process, helping to make sure that energy is ready and available to burn for your next intense workout.
  • Casein – This slow digesting protein increases blood amino acids at a much slower and steadier rate giving you the most favorable environment for proper repair of your muscles over a longer time frame.

    Health Notes

    Whey Protein

    Whey Protein
    This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

    Athletic Performance
    Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day
    Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise. One study found that people taking whey protein improved their performance on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise.(more)
    Immune Function
    Dose: Refer to label instructions
    Whey protein appears to improve some aspects of immune function. One trial showed that whey protein increased blood glutathione levels in a group of HIV-infected people.(more)
    HIV and AIDS Support
    Dose: Refer to label instructions
    Whey protein is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. Supplementing with it may improve immune function.(more)

    Athletic Performance
    Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day

    Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise.1 A controlled trial found that six weeks of strength training while taking 1.2 grams of whey protein per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day resulted in greater gains in lean body mass, but improved only one out of four strength tests.2 Another controlled study found that people taking 20 grams per day of whey protein for three months performed better on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise than people taking a similar amount of milk protein (casein).3 However, a double-blind trial found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day of predigested whey protein for 12 weeks along with a strength training exercise program gained only half as much lean body mass and had significantly smaller increases in strength compared with men using a similar amount of predigested casein along with strength training.4 A controlled study of HIV-infected women found that adding whey protein to strength training exercise was no more effective than exercise alone for increasing strength or improving body composition.5

    Osteoporosis
    Dose: Refer to label instructions

    Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss.1 Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein. A preliminary trial found that 300 mg per day of MBP improved blood measures of bone metabolism in men, suggesting more bone formation was occurring than bone loss.2 A double-blind trial found that women taking 40 mg per day of MBP for six months had greater gains in bone density compared with those taking a placebo.3 No osteoporosis-related research has been done using complete whey protein mixtures.

    Obesity
    Dose: Refer to label instructions

    Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite. In a preliminary study, people were given 48 grams of either whey protein or milk protein (casein). Whey consumption resulted in more hunger satisfaction and reduced the amount of food eaten 90 minutes later compared with casein consumption.1 However, a double-blind study found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs body weight per day of whey protein for 12 weeks along with a low-calorie diet and a strength training exercise program lost the same amount of weight and body fat as did a control group that followed a similar program, but took a casein supplement instead of whey protein.2

    Whey protein is a mixture of some of the proteins naturally found in milk. The major proteins found in whey protein include beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin. Whey protein has one of the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid scores (PDCAAS; a measure of protein bioavailability) and is more rapidly digested than other proteins, such as casein (another milk protein). 1

    Pros

    Cons

    • Difficult To Lose Weight

    Best Uses

    • Twice Daily

    Comments about GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Recovery Protein XR™- Chocolate:

    I started the gym in December, as well as the supplement twice daily after every workout. I didn't feel like superman after taking the supplement, or in other words didn't notice any effects because I still felt a little soar after runnin 30 mins and lifting weights for an hour each day. But, I was able to go back to the gym every day for the same workout, for a month straight! I ran out and stopped taking it a month later in January. Without taking this supplement, one workout not only left me really soar, I have been napping during the days and sleeping in and not going back to the gym. Now I know how much it was helping! Only con that makes me think twice about buying it again is that I didn't lose as much weight as I should have, which tells me this is not a dietary supplement that helps lose weight. It IS for building muscle though, and very good.

    Comments about GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Recovery Protein XR™- Chocolate:

    I use this as my post workout shake. At first I did not like it. It seemed hard to mix and one scoop is much larger then I was used to. I used to mix with milk not a fan when protein is mixed with water. For over a week now I have been mixing it with almond milk and let me tell you I crave this shake now. I used to have to use a blender now I can just use my blender ball with one scoop and 8oz of almond milk. I will for sure buy this again and I'm glad I didn't give up on it.

        I've used the chocolate flavor many times before and it is great after a workout or with my oatmeal in the morning. However, I do add a scoop of amp wheyobolic extreme 60 to get 20 more grams of high quality protein. What is even better, try vanilla recovery protein xr with 1 scoop of fruit punch amp wheyobolic extreme 60. WOWIE. DELISH!

            This stuff is really good! I have been using it for almost 2 years. Unfortunately the container I just bought doesnt taste as good as it used to. My husband purchased a container too (he is overseas right now) and his wasn't as good either. So I am guessing that GNC changed the taste, which definitely isnt as good as before. So please GNC, change it back!!
