03 After

Post-activity drink-mix


03 After delivers a carefully balanced mix of 33 nutrients, each playing a critical role in post-activity recovery. The formula is designed with a focus on full-body recovery, including muscle tissue, tendons, ligaments, joints, and blood sugar/glycogen levels.

Complete, fast recovery

Tissue recovery

Due to its complex and improved amino-acid profile, 03 After focuses on the recovery of muscle tissue, as well as harder tissue, such as joints, ligaments, bone tissue and tendons, making it more comprehensive than a classic protein shake.

Glycogen restoration

Low glucose levels impact protein usage for recovery, therefore, 03 After contains maltodextrin to optimise protein synthesis. Without it, the body would use the added proteins to recover blood sugar levels through a process called gluconeogenesis. Best combined with 02 During.


Both vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, zinc and calcium, play an important role during the recovery process. 03 After replenishes what's lost through sweat, optimising recovery and restoration.

Complex blend of nutrients that all aid in full-body recovery
Developed with the world's leading university and elite athletes
Unrivalled in complexity, effectiveness and digestion

Proteins 21.37 g

Post-activity, the body needs protein in order to recover and rebuild itself. Collagen peptides are a kind of protein in which the amino acids; Glycine, Lysine & Proline occur in high values. 03 After contains 21,37 grams of protein with extra BCAA and L-Leucine. Therefore, the proteins we use in 03 After promote muscle growth and stimulate (fat-free) muscle mass.

Collagen is one of the most important and most common building blocks for your bones, muscles, tendons and connective tissue in our body. The collagen peptides in 03 After are very similar to the body's own collagen. In addition, the added vitamin C contributes to the maintenance of healthy cartilage and strong bones.

Collagen peptides have another unique quality: the protein strands that makeup collagen have already been taken apart and separated into directly absorbable amino acids. This way, they can be directly absorbed by the cell without the intervention of digestion. The resilience and thus the absorbability of the collagen peptides is therefore high.

Carbohydrates 10 g

Carbohydrates, including sugars such as glucose, are an important source of energy for the body. In fact, during intensive strength and endurance sports, stored carbohydrates in the muscles -also called muscle glycogen- are the main source of energy for the muscles. After intensive training, the glycogen stores in the body are largely depleted. Research has shown that a non-optimal amount of glycogen in the muscles decreases performance during training. In order to be able to perform optimally during your next training, it is crucial to replenish the glycogen stores in the muscles in time after a heavy training. The most efficient way to do this is right after exercise, as this is when the body makes the most of dietary carbohydrates to replenish the body’s glycogen stores.

In addition, carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function after an intensive and/or prolonged exercise that leads to muscle fatigue and depletion of the glycogen stores in muscles.*

Total L-Leucine 3.196 mg

L-Leucine, one of the nine Essential Amino Acids (EAAs), holds a unique position in the realm of amino acid metabolism. It is not just a building block for proteins but also a critical regulator of various physiological processes.

03 After provides 3.196 mg of L-Leucine. Here's a brief insight into its significance:

Muscle protein synthesis (MPS) activation: L-Leucine is renowned for its ability to activate the mTOR pathway, a central regulator of cell growth and muscle protein synthesis. This makes it especially vital for muscle recovery and growth post-exertion.
Energy production: During periods of physical stress or fasting, L-Leucine can be metabolized to produce energy, supporting endurance and stamina.
Support in muscle preservation: L-Leucine plays a role in preventing muscle protein breakdown, making it essential for maintaining muscle mass, especially in periods of caloric restriction or inactivity.
Neurotransmitter regulation: Beyond its muscular roles, L-Leucine aids in the production of neurotransmitters, ensuring optimal brain function and communication.

Understanding the multifaceted role of L-Leucine in human physiology is crucial. Our product is formulated to deliver this amino acid in a concentration that supports both muscular and overall health.

Sodium (Sodium Chloride) 70 mg

Sodium is the main electrolyte lost in sweat and the only electrolyte to enhance performance during exercise. Other electrolytes (potassium, calcium, magnesium) are also lost in sweat, but in minimal quantities. A healthy diet is needed to keep these electrolyte concentrations at desired levels in the body.

The recommendation is to consume a sports drink with 0.5 – 0.7 g/L 59 sodium for shorter than three hours and 0.7 – 1 g/L sodium for exercise sessions lasting longer than three hours. In 02 During, we suggest adding a sodium concentration of 0.7 g/L. To one serving of 49 g, 620 mL of water should be added, so one serving should contain 0.35 g of sodium. It is strongly suggested to add sodium in the form of NaCl. One serving, therefore, contains 870 mg of NaCl salt.

Total EAA 13.9 g

03 After delivers a substantial 13.9 g of EAAs, ensuring a comprehensive amino acid profile. Here's a brief overview of the significance of this composition:

Complete protein source: Providing all nine EAAs ensures a complete protein profile, vital for muscle repair, growth, and various bodily functions.

Muscle protein synthesis (MPS): EAAs, particularly leucine, play a crucial role in initiating the process of muscle protein synthesis. This process is fundamental for muscle tissue repair and growth, especially post-physical activity.

Physiological role: Beyond their role in muscle repair, EAAs are intricately involved in numerous physiological processes. This includes, but is not limited to, enzyme function, hormone production, and neurotransmitter regulation.

Optimal recovery: A comprehensive EAA profile can potentially expedite post-activity recovery by directly contributing to muscle tissue repair and other essential bodily functions.

It's imperative to understand the role of EAAs in human physiology, and our product aims to deliver these vital amino acids in an optimal quantity, supporting overall health and muscular function.

Magnesium 40 mg

Magnesium, an essential mineral, is integral to several physiological processes relevant to post-exercise recovery:

Muscle function: Magnesium regulates muscle contraction and relaxation by modulating calcium ion influx, helping to mitigate muscle cramps and spasms after activity.
Energy restoration: As a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions, magnesium is vital for ATP synthesis, the primary cellular energy molecule, supporting efficient post-exercise energy replenishment.
Protein synthesis: Magnesium aids in protein synthesis, crucial for muscle repair and growth following physical exertion.
Electrolyte equilibrium: Lost through sweat during intense activity, magnesium is essential for maintaining cellular ionic balance, crucial for optimal muscle function.
Oxidative stress: Magnesium contributes to reducing exercise-induced oxidative stress, offering protection against cellular damage.
Neuromuscular transmission: Post-exercise, magnesium supports optimal nerve function, promoting proper muscle activation and reducing fatigue.

In summary, magnesium's role in muscle recovery, energy production, and cellular balance highlights its significance in post-activity recuperation. Proper magnesium intake post-exercise can foster muscle recovery and physiological equilibrium.

25 other minerals and vitamins

Vitamins are micronutrients that cannot be produced by your body but are essential to support your health. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B12 are not a direct source of energy but are crucial for energy metabolism. The metabolic processes in your body increase during physical exertion, hence the importance. Minerals cannot be produced by the body itself and do not provide energy by themselves, but support your natural energy levels. The minerals your body needs include calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and chlorine.
