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 Neapolitan Recoverite After a long hard ride Recoverite is easy to drink and digest. I can definitely tell the difference in my recovery process on the rare occasion I miss using Recoverite after long training rides and races. Try mixing 1 scoop each of chocolate and strawberry, it taste great and has been my go to recovery drink for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoveries rules! I've been using Recoverite for more years than I can remember and it continues to be the best training product I have ever used. I'm not sure the magic behind it, but it simply works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tastes great! Don't know exactly what it does, I just know that if I don't use it after a heavy workout I feel sore the next day. I'll keep on using it!

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!
Date published: 2014-09-08
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 I use Recoverite after all my ultra trail races and hard workouts. It tastes great and is easy on the stomach, a major plus as so many hours on the trail can leave my gut a little grumpy. There is a palpable difference in how quickly I can bounce back to start training again after hard efforts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Taste I tried this in the sample packet and fell in love with it. This by far is the best tasting powder!! The only negative thing I can say about it is that when you open it, the product is half empty. The powder is nowhere near close to the top. I have had other products before and understand nothing is ever filled close to the lid but this product seemed the furthest.
Date published: 2014-09-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, wrong flavor I actually never received the orange-vanilla flavored Recoverite that I ordered. I received the Citrus. Recoverite is an amazing product and I have been very happy with the results from using this product. Hammer has a great selection of flavors to choose from with chocolate being my favorite. Personally the citrus flavor is not as desirable as the other flavors but palates vary and I’m sure this would be a great flavor for many.
Date published: 2014-09-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great taste for after a hard workout. Easy mixing with water and easy to consume. No harsh acidic after taste. Feel replenished fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as sore anymore This was my first time using Recoverite as I'm increasing my mileage in training for my first half marathon. Even after reading other testimonials about how great the product is it still surprised me when I wasn't as sore the day after a run as I usually am. Great stuff!
Date published: 2014-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Hammer products I discovered Hammer products around 5 years ago and have never looked back. This is a good quality product always delivers great results. I drink this after a workout and no matter how tough it was, I am ready to go the next day with little or no muscle soreness. I have recommended this product to many friends and will continue to do so.
Date published: 2014-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I tried Recoverite because I was having trouble with recovering after my gym workouts. My personal trainer has really been "hammering" me and I would end up with very sore and crampy muscles. Recoverite (chocolate) tastes fabulous and I drink it on my way home from gym. I recover much quicker and with fewer side effects. I will NOT be without this stuff!
