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.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great and enhances recovery The best part about Recoverite is the taste, especially Strawberry. It's also nice that you only mix a serving with about 8 ounces of water, not 20 ounces or more like some recovery products. 8 ounces is very easy to consume. There is not a ton of calories, carbs, or protein in this stuff...but it's the perfect amount. Consume this and then try to get a balanced meal about an hour later. As endurance athletes, there isn't any need to consume 90g of carb's and 30g of protein immediately after a workout. If you take one Hammer product, make sure it is this one. Drink it regularly and watch how it enhances your training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the reload principle! I have been using Recoverite now for the past couple of weeks. Just finished up a training weekend of 20 milers back-to-back. Great product for reloading your glycogen stores and facilitating recovery.

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 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product This is the one product that is a must have! I am an off road motorcycle racer, and recoverite is part of my training routine. If I use recoverite during the week after workouts and training sessions, I am fully recovered and perform better on race day. I also use it after races and there is no soreness on Monday mornings. Best recovery product on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. I have been running seriously for 4 years now. I have been in the ultra world for a little over a year. When I do my hard runs I have always been sore the next day, or several days. It was discouraging and left me feeling emotionally drained. I picked this up on the suggestion of a friend. (I use their gels on my ultras) I did my hard fast run and took this about 10 minutes after my run--- The next day? ... It felt like I took the weekend off. The first time that has ever happened to me. I always hurt after these runs. I could not believe it. I bought 2 containers immediately. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Recovery Product I've tried other products that have too many "junk" additives. When I'm training this is the product I use and highly recommend it to others. Customer service at Hammer is outstanding as well.

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.

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 Astounding quality and taste This is such a great product. There is really no other that can compete with it on the market because no other product contains the same amazing formula of ingredients! I look forward to taking it everyday after a hard workout because its so easy to make it taste delicious!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff ever! I've been using "Recoverite" for about a year now an all I can say is hurray! I get stomach distress from those other sugary products, but Hammer you got it right. I'm in my fifties and was having difficulty keeping up a good routine. Recovery was taking to long. I introduced "Recoverite" to my regimen and bang I've been able to increase not only workout intensity, but workout frequency as well. Thank you Hammer! John Zipperer Canoga Park, CA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! Recoverite in general is a wonderful product for me. I am 71 years old and still love mountaineering, but my muscles and joints ache after 5 or 6 miles of hiking and climbing. But if I take Recoverite within about a half an hour of coming off the mountain, I have very few aches or muscle problems the next day. And I like all three flavors of Recoverite. I make a shake by mixing a scoop of ice cream, a banana, some milk, and two scoops of Recoverite and not only is it a wonder product due to results of drinking it, the drink itself tastes wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recovery drink Recoverite is a great recovery drink.  I like the strawberry flavor and take it immediately after an endurance work out.  It taste best mixed with 4 to 5 ounces of water.  The complex carb to protein ratio is ideal for muscle recovery.   I use to drink Muscle Milk as a recovery drink but I learned that a pure protein drink with little carbs is not the best way to go.  I love the fact that Recoverite has no artificial sweeteners.  Most sports drinks and protein powder mixes contain sucralose, which is not the case with Hammer Nutrition products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great taste and awesome for recovery I started using strawberry Recoverite in 2009 not realizing how awesome it was until the Tahoe Sierra 100 MTB Race. As usual in endurance races I had major stomach distress and by mile 60 I was only able to keep down watermelon from the aid stations. Needless to say, by the time I finished the race I was extremely fatigued and completely on empty. I forgot about having a mixed bottle of Recoverite in my truck and tried eating some solid food. I could not eat it and went to my truck to drive home and saw the Recoverite bottle. Fifteen minutes after drinking it I felt fine. From that day forward I have drank Strawberry Recoverite after every race and training ride. It tastes great and allows me to recover quickly so I can train again the next day.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great post-long-run After reading about it and trying a sample of the vanilla flavor, I really can see a difference in my recovery. After an interval workout, I put two scoops in my smoothie consisting of soy milk, spinach, banana, and strawberries; and then an hour later, I had another serving (two scoops with water). The next day, I didn't feel as sore and felt like I had only done an easy to moderate workout. I really like the taste and smoothness of this product. It's never gritty but it is a little sweet for me if I just mix it with water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple in my Training My boyfriend and I are in the peak of our training for our first of three marathons this year. We're running 30-40 miles per week, waking up early before work to get it done. As vegetarians, we're hyper-aware of our diets, making sure our bodies have what they need to take the beating each time. Incorporating Recoverite after each run has made it infinitely easier to wake up each morning and lace up, over and over again. We find that after our long runs on Saturday we're able to enjoy the rest of our weekend instead of feeling chained to the couch with dismal energy levels. Will never go back to that! Have tried Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry. All are good, but Chocolate remains our favorite! I pre-measure our servings into mason jars so all we have to do is add water and drink up, immediately after exercise, when are bodies will make the most of the carbs and protein. Usually, eating is the last thing I want to do after a long run, but this goes down easy. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post Work Out Necessity After 6 or more hours on the ballroom dance practice floor, I drink Recoverite to replenish glycogen storage. Best feature is the next morning, I do not feel fatigued and last longer at practice. Highly recommended, not just for post-recovery from competitions, but for regular work outs as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something has changed in the formula I've always been amazed at this product and I have been using it for years. Recently however I've noticed a difference in taste, as if something has been removed from the formula. The same two scoops now taste watered down in the same amount of water. What gives Hammer Nutrition?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite Vanilla I loved it and this was my first time using it. I normally prefer vanilla flavor over chocolate. I don't necessarily used Recoverite for after workouts all the time, as a matter of fact I barely do that. I actually use Recoverite during my ultra marathons just like Perpetum. It works out for me while I do 50mi+ on the trails, hey...recovery starts for me while I'm still running! I've been using Hammer products for years now along with Tailwind as my main fuel for my ultra events, adventures and training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Recovery Product for Crossfit Athletes I've been using Recoverite for the past 9 months and I have noticed a huge difference in my recovery Post-Workout ever since I started using it. Compared to no carbohydrates and other forms of carbs, i.e. fruits, sugar, I have noticed that I feel much more recovered after my workouts and I feel more stable. I am a Crossfit athlete and training can be super intense, with intense strength portions, long aerobic sessions or fat high intensity training. This gets the job done. The flavor is amazing as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor! With a pretty tough endurance workout schedule, I can't imagine what my 40 year old body would feel like if I wasn't using Recoverite. The Strawberry flavor is my favorite, but every once in a while I'll mix in some of the Vanilla Recoverite for a nice change.
