what cyclists are saying

Jordan Miller

Pro Cyclist

“It starts with what you eat and ends with what you eat. If you don't eat right you're not preparing for the next workout. As a pro cyclist that is everything — my job is to be fit and to perform highly. It's to be strong and lean and if I'm not doing that with whole organic ingredients, then it'll be a tough challenge to overcome. Kyoku boosts my recovery like no other allowing me to improve day after day.”

Joey Bacala

Pro Cyclist

“Halfway through the hardest block of the year and firing on all cylinders thanks to @kyokufit ❤️ It's not the training that makes you stronger, it's the recovery. Take it as seriously as the work. Eat clean, prop the legs up, and get plenty of sleep. You'd be amazed at how much workload you can handle if you prioritize recovery!”

Innokenty Zavyalov

Pro Cyclist

“Nutrition is a huge part of the training. You have the stimulus, the training itself, but then you have the recovery. The training breaks down the body and makes you weaker and the recovery is what makes you strong. ”

Rex Roberts

Pro Cyclist

"I'm excited to be working with Kyoku so closely to achieve my training goals through optimized recovery. Being able to tailor the nutrition to our specific needs, as high-level pro athletes is incredible."

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.”

“Personalized and customized food is going to be big,” says Leigh Weissman, Equinox’s New York City-based food and beverage director. Companies like Kyoku offer protein powders and shakes tailored to your personal needs (determined via an online questionnaire).”

December 2019

Kyoku, a new brand that makes personalized post-workout protein powder, is addressing the issue of “what the heck do we eat after a workout” and helping us make the most of our fitness routine by leveraging the power of functional superfood ingredients.

frequently asked
questions

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.
HOW DOES KYOKU REPLENISH MY ENERGY STORES?
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.
HOW DOES KYOKU REPAIR DAMAGED TISSUES?
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.
HOW DOES KYOKU REDUCE INFLAMMATION AND SORENESS?
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.
