Recoverite is Hammer Nutrition's #1 selling product because it works. It's the easy and highly effective way to fulfill a crucial component of athletic performance: the replenishment of carbohydrates and protein right after a workout or event. This great product is available in two options: the original whey protein and - coming soon - vegan protein!
The original Recoverite product remains the same: complex carbs (maltodextrin) and whey protein isolate (the most bioavailable protein) in a 3:1 ratio, 3 grams of glutamine, a full-spectrum electrolyte profile, and key nutrients for recovery. Ever since its introduction 14 years ago, thousands of thoroughly satisfied athletes have proven that there isn't a more potently effective recovery drink than Recoverite.
Vegan Recoverite contains the same ingredients in the same amounts as the original Recoverite formula, with the exception that organic pea protein is the protein source. Organic pea protein is an easily digested, gluten-free protein with an excellent amino acid profile, including BCAA's (leucine, isoleucine, valine) - three key recovery-enhancing amino acids.
How well you recover today greatly determines how well you perform tomorrow
Given how important proper recovery between workouts is - not just for improving your athletic performance, but also (mainly) for supporting overall health - it should be obvious that you need to be acutely aware of what you're putting in your body. Yet some athletes just blow off resupplying their body with fuel altogether (big mistake), or they consume whatever's convenient, wrongly assuming that Anything will work. Calories are calories, right? Both are major mistakes that will only cause athletes to lose out on all the benefits that high-quality fuel replenishment can provide.
Bottom line: The adage garbage in, garbage out definitely applies to post-exercise fuel replenishment. You simply cannot hope to make improvements in your athletic performance or support optimal health if you indiscriminately chow down on anything. Sugar, fat, lactose, etc.? That's just not going to cut it if you hope to get the full value out of all the time and energy you put into your training.
The benefits of refilling the tank ASAP after a workout
You will probably not find an easier way to boost your fitness and enhance your exercise performance than by simply taking a few moments - as soon as your workout is done - to put some fuel back in your body. When you do that, your body rewards you handsomely for all the work you did in the training session. Resupply the body with high-quality carbohydrates and protein right away - within the first 30 minutes (the sooner, the better) - and here's what happens:
- The muscle cells will be restocked with fuel so that you have it on board and ready to serve you for tomorrow's workout. In fact, the more consistently you train AND resupply the body with fuel, your body will respond by storing more and more minutes of fuel in the muscles.
- Your muscle tissue has the raw materials it needs to become stronger, which allows you to make increases in your training volume and intensity without your muscles taking such a beating.
- The amount of soreness that you experience between now and the next workout will be greatly diminished.
- Your immune system gets stronger.
No question about it; your body wants and needs Recoverite or Vegan Recoverite. That'll give it the necessary carbs and protein, as well as other nutrients - glutamine, chromium, L-carnosine, and electrolytes - that will help it recover quicker and more completely.
With Vegan Recoverite, you can enjoy superb benefits while still maintaining your specific dietary choices and lifestyle. If you are not on a restricted diet, why not try both original and vegan options to see which one works best for you? Both formulations taste great and work incredibly well¦ we guarantee it!
