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 5 out of 5 by from Great for Geriatric Riders I'm an oldie for mountain biking, and need all the help I can get when it comes to faster recovery. Recoverite really works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taste great My number one choice for recovery! I love the taste especially the chocolate flavor. But the best thing about recoverite is how fresh my legs feels after a 20 mile trail run

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this Recoverite as a refill. I always drink it after a hard workout or race.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new convert! I was given a double sample by a running friend several weeks ago. I used it after a 16 mile run and felt better than after my 25K trail race. I used it for 2 days prior to my first marathon yesterday. And a double serving afterwards. I am walking and feeling light years better then after that 25K! Oh, sure, there is some soreness, but I am not hobbling about or struggling to get up from chairs. Frankly, I am amazed at the results! BTW, I just started running 23 months ago and am now 60. Now if only I could keep up with that fast running fiend of a son I have....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Recovery product I use recoverite after each training ride and race. It has always done a good job replenishing lost electrolytes, protein and other essential minerals to keep me going. I don't go without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aptly named Bought this about a month ago, it has helped get me throught those tough training weekends much more so that wht I was using before.
Date published: 2014-05-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says! I am 51 years old and back to back heavy training sessions were getting a little difficult. Recoverite dramatically enhanced my training sessions by allowing me to train more with less muscle soreness. I have always liked training; now I can do more of it. I have only tried the Citrus and the Vanilla, but to me they taste pretty good. It works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Recoverite is the perfect balance for post workout recovery. Gives the lift needed and muscles appreciate the love. Flavors are good as well.
Date published: 2014-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite Rocks If you think you don't need a recovery drink, think again. Recoverite is a miracle product. If used after every workout, your next work out will be more productive and you won't have an excuse to not work-out due to sore muscles. At age 48 I started using this product because a friend recommended it for sore muscles the next day. I would put off the next workout because of sore muscles. No more. Now my 25 y/o is using it and can't believe what a difference. She is just getting back into working out and wouldn't miss her glass of Recoverite after her workout.
Date published: 2014-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste and great product I love the taste of this drink and it makes me feel great after every workout. I definitely notice the difference when I finish my training with Recoverite. Great product all round.
Date published: 2014-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I was hoping for. I've had the chocolate and the vanilla flavors; they both taste great.
Date published: 2014-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strawberry Fields Forever I have always preferred the Strawberry Recoverite to the Vanilla. It helps me refuel and refresh after a hard workout. Whether I am on the bike or at the gym, Recoverite fills the gaps in recovery nutrition. It doesn't make me faster. I don't get increased power from the product, but I do recover quicker and more fully. Thus, I am able to put in more work and reap the benefits.
Date published: 2014-05-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I really like Recoverite. I had tried it at a friend's and decided to give it a try. What I like is that I don't feel hungry after the workout and feel ready to resume normal activity sooner.
Date published: 2014-05-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So important! I've been using Vanilla Recoverite for over a year now, and I feel like I am benefitting bc I feel fresh for the next day's workout, whereas before I was feeling fatigued and had heavy legs. I have it with me (in the handy tumbler), so I can just add water (or the remainder of my HAMMER Electrolyte Fizz), and gulp it down immediately after finishing ANY hard ride or race. Recovery is as important as working out, and this formula supplies all the nutrients necessary to get that process started. At age 63, you'd think I could take it just a lil bit easy....but not at all! My competition is right there, ready to hit that podium, and in order to stay in the game, I need to be able to train like an animal!!
Date published: 2014-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vanilla Recoverite I love the taste of the Vanilla Recoverite when I mix it with Bananas and Raspberries to make a shake. After a 10 hour training ride I really don't feel like eating but I know my body needs to start healing, so I make a shake and down it goes. The next day I'm ready to ride again.
Date published: 2014-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drink it after every long run Recoverite keeps me going! I use it after every long run finish, and recovery down time is at a minimum. I am usually can do a 3-4 mile run the following day with no issue or discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste I have been using Recoverite for almost 2 years. I drink it after every workout, and I have seen a dramatic improvement in my performance. I feel stronger and better recovered and ready to push hard on my next workout. Whether I’m running 3miles or going for an all day biking adventure Recoverite is my go to recovery tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fine product from Hammer I have used this product for its intended use for years. I tried many products before and after and keep coming back to this one. Chocolate is the best after training flavor. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efffective Been using for a month. Taste is good, much better than others I have tried. The use of recoverite seems to positively impact how ready to go I am the next day.

Date published: 2014-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Recoverite! Our whole family uses Chocolate Recoverite as our go-to recovery product. I put 1-2 scoops in a small running bottle and leave it dry until just after a workout. Squirt some water into it, and you have a convenient and shelf-stable recovery drink ready when you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite fills that empty pit. Recoverite really works for me. When I drink it after a workout, and especially those long endurance activity days, it fills that 'empty' hungry pit feeling like nothing else. As a side note; when I use Heed or Perpetuem (depending on the length of activity), I don't get so much of that empty pit feeling. Since I have started taking Hammer products I do feel sustained energy during activities, I am not as sore the next day(s) and recover quicker. Thank you Hammer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweetness!! Recoverite does what H.N. claims but for me, it's too sweet. Seems to me that half the amount of Stevia would be about right.
