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 vanilla flavor Last time I ordered strawberry and it is more like "hint of strawberry". This time I ordered vanilla and I'm very glad I did. It is very flavorful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've been using Recoverite for quite a while--obviously because I think it is an effective product. The first thing I do after a long hike is drink Recoverite. I do wish Citrus flavor was still available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite I have been using Recoverite for more than four years after most bike and run workouts and every race. Everything I read about endurance sports says replenishing carbohydrates and protein in a 3/1 mix is essential to building greater strength and endurance. Recoverite and sometimes chocolate milk if I do not have Recoverite are my nutritional tools for recovery. I compete at an age group national level and have had consistent results. I think Recoverite is a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This stuff is great! I used to ask myself after a race or training ride what to eat to get good recovery. Not anymore. I just use Recoveride. It's simple and tastes great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Recovery Product! I bought this a few weeks ago and have noticed a difference in my recovery. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So smooth Have been using this a full season and the best feature (besides the taste) is how smooth it is...it dissolves very well so it's not gritty.
Date published: 2014-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and Easy-Drinking I have been really, pleasantly surprised by how much I like this product! I whizz it into shakes post-run and it's easy to stomach, smooth, and light-tasting, not too sweet. After a really long run I have a tough time with "real" food so this is a great option; it keeps me from going nuts eating everything in sight once my appetite returns, too. I love the chocolate and vanilla.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recovery made delicious! Recoverite is one of the FIRST things I pack before leaving town for a race or big ride. And it's also the FIRST I drink after the event. Not only is it very effective in replenishing what my body needs, but it also tastes great. Chocolate is my fav!
Date published: 2014-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best recovery drink out there! Great taste, great macronutrient profile, and great price. I have tried just about every brand of post-workout recovery drink and I continue to come back to Recoverite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite = the BEST! Cannot train every day with the duration or intensity if Recoverite was not part of the post-ride plan. Thanks HAMMER.
Date published: 2014-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great recovery` never used Recoverite before. now I'm a believer! I have used it on my last 3 long rides and after shorter hard rides. Nothing I have used before has allowed me to feel like riding the next day! Steve 68

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have never written a review for any product I've purchased, but Recoverite is one of my favorite things! I look forward to my workouts because I know my Recoverite is waiting! I've tried different products in the past, but this is the best!!! I really like that it tastes so good and is not to sweet or thick. I really feel I do recover quicker. Thanks Hammer Nutrition...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite I have been using Recoverite, Heed, Gel, and Electrolites when I'm Mtn biking as well as when I'm road cycling and find it meets my needs for energy, endurance, electrolyte replenishment, and the important recovery
Date published: 2014-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than expected! A skeptic by nature, I questioned the need for a recovery drink. But hey, I'm getting into geezer territory, and intense conditioning is getting harder, so I was looking for any break I could get. I tried Recoverite as directed (within a half hour of the end of strenuous work outs) and it really makes a noticeable difference the next day. I'm impressed!

Date published: 2014-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality ingredients with NO fillers as a former bodybuilder, i had my preferred brand of recovery drink for years and no one could talk me out of it. well, one day i actually read the label and looked up the ingredients...and, seriously? there was a lot of filler in it (thickening agents, extra starch, etc). one day, after biking into town and stopping at the bike store for new gear, i grabbed a packet of recoverite and discovered i could actually understand the ingredients list. on top of that, it tasted great and worked like a charm! so if you think recoverite is too expensive, ask yourself if you would put low grade fuel in your porsche. no? i didn't think so. your body is worth recovering with recoverite. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Orange Vanilla Love the product and company so far as well as the nutrition profile but the orange vanilla is one of the worst shake flavors I've tasted. It tastes like you've just been to the dentist, a very chemical after taste. Shame because at $32 I'm going to have to suck it up until I can order a new player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is one thing I will not forget to have after any ride. It makes all the difference in the world after particularly strenuous rides. My recovery has improved tremendously and I don't feel fatigued after my rides.

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.
