Product Detail & Benefits

Description:

Athletic performance improvement depends on a program of exercise to stimulate muscular and cardiovascular adaptation followed by a recovery period in which the body rebuilds itself slightly more fit than before. Thus, the real gain of exercise occurs during recovery, but only in the presence of adequate rest and optimal nutritional support. Carbohydrate and protein replenishment, as soon as possible upon completion of your workout, helps you to get the very most out of every minute you've put into training. 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.

Recoverite supplies carbohydrates and protein in an ideal 3:1 ratio for superior glycogen synthesis and muscle tissue rebuilding, the two main components of recovery. For carbohydrates Recoverite contains only maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate with a high glycemic index, to ensure rapid metabolism. Unlike most recovery products that contain simple sugars, maltodextrin provides a large volume of easily digested and rapidly assimilated carbohydrate, vital for preventing stomach distress and promoting full, efficient restoration of muscle glycogen.

Recoverite contains only whey protein isolate, which is virtually fat—and lactose—free, and yields the highest percentage of protein. For rebuilding lean muscle tissue and immune system support, whey protein isolate has no peer; it's simply the purest form of whey protein available. In addition, each serving of Recoverite also contains a potent, recovery-boosting three grams of l-glutamine.

Recoverite supplies other recovery-enhancing nutrients such as ChromeMate® chromium polynicotinate (for maximizing muscle glycogen synthesis) and l-carnosine, a powerful antioxidant and potential anti-aging nutrient. Recoverite also contains a full-spectrum electrolyte profile to replenish depleted essential minerals.

What Recoverite does not contain are inconsequential amounts of vitamins and minerals, commonly found in other formulas. They look good on a label, but have little physiological value. Vitamins and minerals are indeed important in recovery, but in amounts best fulfilled from Premium Insurance Caps, a potent, complete vitamin/mineral supplement.

Recoverite is also completely free of any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.

How well you recover today will largely determine your performance tomorrow. When you put as much effort into the recovery process as you do for active training, you're way ahead of the game and you will no doubt enjoy improved performance. Along with adequate rest, it's vitally important to refuel your body as soon as possible after every training session and race. Using Recoverite, you can be assured that you're giving your body exactly what it needs. Recoverite is the right product with the right formula to provide your body with the right amounts of the right nutrients, ensuring rapid and complete recovery from all of your workouts and races.

Benefits:

Recoverite recovery drink comes in these delicious flavors: Chocolate, Orange-Vanilla, Strawberry and Vanilla.

How well you perform tomorrow depends on how well you recover today, which is why you can't cut corners when it comes to your post-workout fueling. Recoverite supplies your body with the proper 3:1 ratio of complex carbohydrates and the highest quality whey protein isolate, 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 your hard workouts and ideally prepping your body for your next workout or race. Make sure you're recovering right with Recoverite and remember, it makes a superb meal replacement drink as well. Train hard, recover right today, and feel great tomorrow.

Extra Benefits:
The amino acid glutamine, also contained in Hammer Whey, plays a vital role in the health of your muscles, immune system, and digestive tract. Glutamine is arguably the key "recovery amino" as it (A) helps boost the immune system, (B) helps to reduce the symptoms of overtraining, (C) plays a role in enhancing glycogen synthesis, and (D) stimulates muscle protein synthesis for the rebuilding of lean muscle tissue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recoverite This is a wonderful product, workes great. Biggest issue is that for the big tub you spend over $50. And typically you get free samples when ordering but even that went away. For as much as i need and use this product the cost is getting to be to much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HAMMER RECOVERITE IS THE BEST!! I have used this product for 12 years (or more). (And, I have tried many others as well). Recoverite never fails to work! Not only for the Ironman's that I do, but also for after hiking, kayaking, or even 2-hours of pushing a lawn mower! It gets me to the next day, next workout or next race feeling great. Good stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from recoverite I am 66, training for kayak race's. I currently live in texas, where it gets rather warm on occasions. I found that after several hours of training that I would be tired and occasionally a little lethargic for the rest of the day. A friend suggested that I try Recoverite (I guess he was tired of the whining ) I have found that the product work"s very well. Within one to three minuet's I can l feel myself beginning to recover. It takes me about 45 minuets to load the kayak and drive home .usually by that time I'm completely recovered .I highly recommend this product.

It has really made my afternoons much more productive and attentive. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Da Bom Recoverite is tasty and effective. Hammer nutrition provides science not simple sugars and artificial ingredients. After long mountain runs and Grand Canyon summit bids Recoverite prevents cramping and keeps me settled until I get home. After the Water is Life ultra I finished with terrible calf cramps, 2 packets of Recoverite later I was driving 2.5 hours back to Flagstaff. Recoverite is a lovely product, one that is a key part is my workout regimen as well as my hammer order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Recovery Drink in the Market! I've been using Recoverite for over 2 years and could tell a difference immediately on the days I "skipped" it. Hammer put some good research into what the body needs after you work it, and this is it! Recoverite is my go-to post-workout drink and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! 64 mile bike followed by 7 mile run, 4 scoops of Recoverite, the next day 11 mile run on "fresh" feeling legs.
Date published: 2014-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Recovery Beverage I usually just drink a chocolate milk after my long runs, which is tasty don't get me wrong. I often end up with a headache later in the day though, which I usually have to take ibuprofen for. A friend suggested Recoverite so I bought some of the single servings to give it a try. It's nothing short of awesome. Three long runs (18, 20, 22) and no headaches and I swear I'm kicking butt at my chores the rest of the day. I wish I had known about this stuff before.
