Hello all. I was looking into getting something for recovery after a ride and was looking around at options. Specifically, I was looking at Skratch Labs Recovery at the time and noticed it said "Technically, our Sport Recovery Drink Mix is a 4 to 1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein, that’s designed to bring your blood sugar up fast. This causes the hormone insulin to spike, which is key to getting the sugar, electrolytes, fat, and protein in our Sport Recovery Drink Mix back into muscle fast". Now, I suffer from Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), so I want to know if this is going to be an issue for me or not? Are most/all post ride recovery products going to be the same? I'll be the first to admit, I don't have a lot of knowledge about nutrition and how it affects the body, so it may be nothing but I wanted to check. It had some key words in there that typically raise a flag for me. Quick spikes and insulin are normally two things I'm looking to avoid. If something like Skratch Labs isn't going to be a good option for me, is there anything that would be a better option for me or am I better to avoid recovery products?
