Why do I need a recovery drink?

That's where Recoverite comes in, providing unsurpassed nutritional support to ensure you obtain the maximum value from your workouts and complete recovery after each training session and race.

What we do in training is definitely important, no question about it, but if we neglect to consistently take the proper steps to recover properly, we will never get the full value out of the time and energy spent in training. Remember, the gains we make in our training occur during recovery, but only in the presence of adequate rest and optimal nutritional support. If we don’t attend to that, we not only miss out on the benefits of our workouts, we can create more problems such as getting sick or injured. The key to kick-starting the all-important recovery process is the replenishment of high-quality carbohydrates and protein immediately after exercise (within the first 30 minutes, the sooner the better). When you give your body this kind of support when it's most receptive to replenishment, which it is the minute you stop exercising, it will respond by:

  • Storing more minutes of the premium, ready-to-use fuel (glycogen) in the muscle cells
  • Strengthening your immune system
  • Rebuilding muscle tissue stronger
  • Reducing aches and soreness

 

Recoverite and Organic Vegan Recoverite provides your body with the ideal 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, along with generous amounts of multi-beneficial glutamine (a whopping three grams per serving!), the potent antioxidant l-carnosine, and a full-spectrum electrolyte profile. The result is rapid and enhanced recovery, allowing you to obtain the maximum value from all of your workouts and ideally prepping your body for your next workout or event.

What is the difference between Whey Protein and Recoverite and what is the best time to use either or both of these products?

Every serving (1 scoop) of Whey Protein contains 15 grams of 100% whey protein isolate and 6 grams of glutamine. For athletes doing a purely strength workout (e.g. a weight training session in the gym), consuming 1 scoop of Whey Protein immediately after the workout is a great to provide the lean muscle tissue with the amino acids it needs to repair and rebuild. The glutamine in the product, among its many benefits, is ideal for helping maintain a strong immune system. Consuming 1 scoop of Whey Protein prior to bedtime is also a highly beneficial practice—the body receives an excellent dose of amino acids, which it will use during a time (sleep) when it does many of its reparation/recuperative processes, and the glutamine will elevate serum human growth hormone (hGH) levels, which has anabolic (muscle building) effects. Lastly, a serving of Whey Protein taken any time during the day is an excellent way to bolster your daily protein intake, helping you reach your optimal amount.

Every serving (2 scoops) of Recoverite contains 10 grams of the same exact whey protein isolate that's in Whey Protein, as well as 3 grams of glutamine. Every serving of Recoverite also contains 33 grams of complex carbohydrates; Whey Protein contains only 0-1 grams of naturally occurring carbohydrates (no added carbohydrates). Unlike a "strength only" workout, immediately after an aerobic/endurance workout the body needs these carbohydrates to replenish and increase depleted glycogen stores. Both the protein and glutamine components in Recoverite assist in the glycogen restoration process. The protein also supplies the amino acids needed to help repair and rebuild the muscle, and the glutamine supports healthy immunity. Recoverite (but not Whey Protein) also contains the trace mineral chromium polynicotinate (ChromeMate®), which maximizes insulin functioning (very important in the glycogen restoration process), and l-carnosine, which is a powerful antioxidant.

What are your thoughts on a serving of Recoverite prior to a long workout or race?

This is not advisable for a couple reasons, the first one being the amino acid profile in whey protein. While whey protein’s amino acid profile is ideal for recovery, the amino acids (and their amounts) in soy protein are much more appropriate for use during exercise.

The main issue, however, is the glutamine that we add to Recoverite. This is an extraordinarily beneficial amino acid, but it’s best used after exercise; it’s not a good amino acid to consume prior to or during exercise. The reason is because when glutamine is first metabolized, it produces a bit of ammonia. Interestingly, and paradoxically, 3+ hours after ingestion, glutamine actually becomes an effective ammonia scavenger, soaking up and detoxifying the ammonia it produces and more. The problem is that, because ammonia is a primary cause for premature fatigue, athletes don’t have the luxury of waiting 3+ hours during exercise for glutamine to soak up the ammonia it initially produced. After exercise, when the muscles are no longer actively working, the small amount of ammonia that glutamine produces is no longer an issue, and all the benefits of this remarkable amino acid can be realized. But when you take anything containing glutamine prior to or during exercise--including Recoverite or Organic Vegan Recoverite--you’re only adding to the ammonia “burden” that your body is already having to deal with.

BOTTOM LINE: Save Recoverite for after exercise. Use Perpetuem or Sustained Energy prior to and during long-duration workouts or races.

What's the difference between Recoverite & Organic Vegan Recoverite? Is there an advantage of one over the other if I'm omnivorous?

Recoverite contains whey protein isolate, while Organic Vegan Recoverite contains organic pea protein. If you is adhering to a vegetarian/vegan diet, the latter is an excellent protein source. Considered the least allergenic of all protein sources, organic pea protein is also regarded as arguably the easiest plant protein to digest. Organic pea protein contains an excellent amino acid profile—it’s a rich source of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine—and is gluten-free and lactose-free. That said, there is no better protein source than whey protein isolate when it comes to bioavailability and Essential Amino Acids (EAA) content, including the three branched-chain amino acids. There are a number of additional benefits attributed to whey protein isolate that no other protein source can offer. You can read more about this at Stay Strong and Stay Healthy.

Why does Recoverite contain maltodextrin?

Q: I just ordered Recoverite for the first time and have heard so many amazing things about the product. However, I've noticed that the main ingredient is maltodextrin. A simple search for this ingredient exposes that many people believe that it is worse than sugar and very high on the glycemic index. I understand that it is included in the produced because it is considered a complex carbohydrate, but from my initial understanding, it is not a good additive, particularly when it is the main ingredient? Also, since the ingredient is so high on the Glycemic Index, is this a good product to use when someone is trying to be fat adaptive?

A: When you finish an exercise session, two things are highly active for a relatively short period of time--one is an enzyme known as glycogen synthase and the other is insulin. Glycogen synthase is responsible for taking your carbohydrate intake and converting it into glycogen for storage in the muscles and liver. You have depleted your stores of glycogen, so it's crucial to "refill the tank" so that you have those stores replenished and ready for tomorrow's workout. Insulin, along with glycogen synthase, is what drives this glycogen into the muscle cells. One reason why maltodextrin is ideal for post-workout carbohydrate replenishment is precisely because of its high glycemic index rating. With the activity of insulin and glycogen synthase only remaining at high levels for a very short time, a quick-acting carbohydrate source is not only ideal, it's quite necessary. The quicker acting the carbohydrate source, the quicker you will kick-start the glycogen restoration process. We remain equally convinced that carbohydrates are vitally important—they are the key component—when it comes to fueling your body during exercise, especially in regards to being able to use fat as an energy source most efficiently and effectively. We also believe that carbs are extremely important to consume (protein as well) after your exercise session has been completed. The carbs are needed to replenish the muscle cells and the liver with fuel, and the protein will provide the amino acids needed for muscle tissue repair and immune system support. Lastly, the only time we recommend the consumption of a high-Glycemic Index carbohydrate like maltodextrin are during exercise and immediately after.

Does the whey protein isolate in Recoverite contain lactose?

Recoverite contains the same exact whey protein isolate as our Whey Protein product does. It is not exactly 100% lactose free, it's approximately 98% lactose free, and because there's virtually no lactose remaining, people that have a lactose intolerance can almost always use the product without any issue whatsoever. Now, if someone were allergic to dairy, we would not recommend a whey protein-containing product; however, if it just an intolerance to lactose, you should have no issues with both of our whey protein isolate-containing products, Whey Protein and Recoverite.

Is Recoverite or Organic Vegan Recoverite manufactured in the same facility as your CBD products?

All of our CBD products are manufactured in an entirely different city (and thus, a completely different facility) than any of the other Hammer Nutrition products, including Recoverite and Organic Vegan Recoverite.

Does Recoverite contain caffeine?

One flavor, Caffe Latte, contains 25mg of caffeine per serving.

Can I mix with warm water instead of cold water?

Q: Would I lose any nutritional benefits if I mix Recoverite or Organic Vegan Recoverite with warm water instead of cold water?

A: Nope! It's totally fine to mix either product with warm water, and there will be no loss of potency or benefits.

Does Recoverite contain soy?

Q: I’m allergic to soy. Does Recoverite and/or Organic Vegan Recoverite contain soy?

A: Neither product contains any soy or soy protein.

Can I add an extra scoop of Whey Protein to Recoverite?

Q: Can I add an extra scoop of Whey Protein to Recoverite, as a 2-scoop serving of Recoverite only has 10 grams of protein?

A: You can certainly add one-half to one scoop of Whey Protein to Recoverite. However, we do not believe this is absolutely necessary, as 10 grams of protein (and 3 grams of glutamine) are quite sufficient to kick-start the recovery process. Most people will have a protein-containing, solid food meal within the next hour or two after they consume Recoverite, which is why, while adding more Whey Protein to a 2-scoop serving of Recoverite is not problematic at all, it's really not necessary. HOT TIP: Consuming a serving of Whey Protein (mixed in water only) right before bed will yield tremendous benefits for enhancing recovery.

Is there any egg in Recoverite?

Q: Is there any egg in Recoverite? Or cross contamination with egg?

A: There is no egg in Recoverite, no ingredients in Recoverite are derived from eggs, and there is no possibility of cross-contamination with any egg/egg-products with Recoverite.

Does Recoverite contain antibiotics or hormones?

Q: Is the whey protein in Recoverite from grass-fed cows and without antibiotics or hormones?

A: Hammer Nutrition's Whey Protein is free of lactose, fat, gluten and added sugar, and is derived from US-raised grass-fed, hormone-free and antibiotic-free cows.

How to Use

Mix 2 scoops with 4–8 oz of water. Consume immediately after exercise. If you’re not able to eat a full meal within one hour of completing your exercise, take a second serving.

PRO TIPS

For best results, do not combine with milk or milk substitutes, as this alters the preferable carb-to-protein ratio and may reduce the rate of digestion.

To ensure the best flavor and effectiveness of the product, do not mix in advance.

Please Note: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any products that contain xylitol, nor any products that are made for human consumption. More information.

 

5 Secrets of Success

How To Hammer

INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN

2.0 = TAPIOCA Maltodextrin – Less processed, NON-GMO, lower mono and disaccharide content/much higher percentage of polysaccharide content (courtesy of its lower Dextrose Equivalent), less sodium content, and even closer to the desired neutral pH.

Original = Corn Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s energy (glycogen) stores after exercise.

Whey Protein Isolate – The most bioavailable of all protein sources and the superior source of amino acids for muscle tissue repair and immune system support. Whey protein isolate also provides potent anti-inflammatory benefits.

L-Glutamine – The most abundant amino acid in the muscles, L-glutamine plays a significant role in the glycogen synthesis process, and helps repair and rebuild muscle tissue. It has also been shown to help raise bodily levels of glutathione, the most important antioxidant for immune system health. Glutamine also contributes to growth hormone release and digestive health.

Chromium Chelate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids. During recovery, chromium facilitates carbohydrate storage (glycogen synthesis).

L-Carnosine – One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.

Full-spectrum electrolyte profile – The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps replenish depleted mineral stores.

Manganese – This trace mineral plays an important role in the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant.

Glycine – This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to Recoverite’s delicious flavor.

Xylitol – This natural sweetener, found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables, promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay. NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.

Stevia – This is the extract (steviosides) from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to subtropical and tropical Central and South America. Stevia is non-caloric, and does not affect blood sugar levels. Like xylitol, stevia does not support acid-producing bacteria responsible for tooth decay.
