what cyclists are saying

Aggressive - Road & Gravel

“I used to take recovery shakes after riding because that was accepted knowledge of how to take care of yourself. I tried various store bought options and never really felt much of a difference. Some upset my stomach more than others, and that was the main influence on how I chose my product. I now take Kyoku recovery shakes after each ride because I do feel the effects the next day. I feel fresh and ready to hit the hills all over again. Great taste, natural ingredients, and no stomach trouble.”

"Kyoku has completely changed my recovery process by providing me with all-natural and effective ingredients, tailored specifically for me, just a shake away. It’s definitely the best way to get serious about your post-ride nutrition and recover like a pro."

“I struggled for years to find a protein shake that doesn't make my gut feel like a pit of concrete and I refuse to consume anything with ingredients I have never heard of. Kyoku is personal, wholesome, and simple. Every ingredient has a purpose measured to fit my own fitness needs and leaves me feeling ready to keep pushing my limits.”

“When it comes to performing at your maximum capacity, recovery is KEY. When you are properly recovered you can amp up your training, which translates directly to achieving great results. I started using Kyoku because their personalized shakes really appealed to me as an athlete, running, cycling and triathlon coach. Their 30-day PR guarantee made me want to give it a try! I can assure you, I am hitting PR’s on swim, bike and run sessions and I’m feeling great!”

backed by science

We develop our post-ride shakes with leading medical and nutritional experts — who make exercise a daily priority.

“I’ve just finished a grueling 30-mile bike ride, and I’m sipping on a recovery shake mixed from a sleek black packet. It has 27 grams of protein, because I’m trying to gain muscle, and omega-3 fatty acids to keep me feeling full. Beetroots boost my endurance, and anti-inflammatory green bell pepper keeps me from getting sore. This mix was designed specifically for me by Kyoku, a California-based startup that launched in 2018.”

December 2019

"We all know doing events like the Tour de France and other hard rides, recovery is key. Without recovery, you know, the next day is just not the same. It allows you to train harder, improve faster, beat your PR’s."

July 2020

"Don’t be fooled—this is far more than just another fancy protein shake. Step one involves you taking a short questionnaire on the Kyoku website to determine your basic goals, fitness, and dietary needs/desires. From there, your recovery shakes are customized to meet your needs (using plant-based protein only), which include “superfood” ingredients such as beets, tart cherry, green tea extract, turmeric, and ashwagandha."

frequently asked

Why does personalization matter?
Your body type, riding style, and cycling goals are unique to you. Through the right combination of plant-based superfoods with nutritional properties tailored to you, you’ll recover faster and perform better the next day. Whether you are a 30-year-old track racer who’s looking to optimize sprinting workouts or a 55-year-old who’s looking to manage weight to become a better climber, Kyoku has you covered.
Why plant-based superfoods?
Health and wellness communities agree that diets emphasizing fresh, whole food ingredients are superior for overall wellness. Superfoods are nutritionally dense and laden with naturally occurring antioxidants and micronutrients. This is why we wanted to use only natural, wholesome ingredients. Furthermore, plant-based ingredients are far more environmentally sustainable. These ingredients produce fewer greenhouse gases, use less land, and consume less water compared to animal-based protein counterparts.
Why consume a post-ride recovery shake?
According to leading doctors, dietitians, and personal trainers, what you consume within 30 minutes of exercising matters. Consuming the optimal amount of protein, carbs, and healthy fats after exercise is essential for replenishing your body with the fuel it needs to recover. Proper recovery reduces inflammation, repairs damaged tissues, and allows you to perform better the next day. If you're able to perform better the next day, day-after-day, you'll increase the amount of high-quality training you're able to do over time. As a result, you'll improve faster, reach your cycling goals more quickly, and break your PRs.
Does Kyoku actually work?
Our superfood recovery shakes are made with clinically proven plant-based ingredients that contain nutritive properties designed to help you recover faster according to your body type, riding style, and cycling goals. Industry-leading doctors and dietitians engineered our personalized system to achieve optimal performance. Therefore, we've empowered countless cyclists to break their PRs, and our products are loved by everyone from weekend warriors to WorldTour pros. We believe in our post-ride shakes so much that we offer a 30-day PR Guarantee, meaning if you don't break a new PR within 30 days of starting with us, we promise to refine your formula or refund your purchase entirely.
Why should I trust Kyoku?
We want to be transparent about everything we do. We know the farmers who source our ingredients and where they come from. Our natural ingredients are pure and don’t contain additives, colorants, or any nasties — nothing you can’t pronounce. Our shakes are simple, effective, and backed by scientific research. We've also optimized our formulas to promote health-span and longevity, so there's no need to compromise. We care about what we put in our bodies and believe a healthy outside starts on the inside.
What kind of testing do you do?
We carefully source our ingredients from the highest quality organic farms from all over the world. Additionally, we thoroughly test our products for pesticides, heavy metals, and irradiation.
A long day in the saddle inevitably depletes your body’s glycogen stores, a key energy source derived from digesting protein and carbohydrates. Running out of glycogen stores makes many riders experience extreme fatigue, dizziness, a near-complete loss of energy, and the inability to focus. Our superfood recovery shakes contain glycogen rich ingredients such as Sweet Potato, Quinoa, and Brown Rice which are specifically designed to replenish your depleted nutrient stores.
Micro-tears in muscle fibers are a normal part of riding, happening when we impose strain on our muscles. Therefore, it is essential to replenish your body with highly-digestible protein that contains the full amino acid profile in the effort of growing, maintaining, and repairing your body's soft tissues, including muscle. Although this macronutrient has gained a title as the 'building block of muscle,' not all protein is created equally. Kyoku's plant-based protein blend consists of the best ingredients, such as Hemp Seeds, Chia Seeds, Chickpea, Peas, and Brown Rice. Thus, our superfood recovery shakes allow your soft tissue fibers to heal more efficiently and become stronger in the process.
Muscle soreness and joint pain experienced after a ride are often associated with mild forms of exercise-induced inflammation. Inflammation can cause pain, slow your recovery process, and even obstruct the progress you’ve made with your training. By managing post-ride inflammation, you can recover faster, protect yourself from overtraining, cause less stress to your body, and perform better the next day. Therefore, our superfood recovery shakes leverage clinically proven anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Tart Cherry, Turmeric, and Beet Root.
