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 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 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer This product was recommended by a fellow walker in the San Francisco walk for breast cancer. Walking 39.3 miles can take a toll on the body. The first 2 walks I completed, I had more than a 2 day recovery. After the 3rd walk, we drank Recoverite and felt fantastic. Had both orange and strawberry. Both tasted great. Highly recommend. Will never walk 39.3 miles again without it.

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 Does what it should and tastes great too! Recoverite gives my tired muscles what they need and the great taste makes it a reward worth looking forward to.  Intense training six days a week at my age means you have to pay close attention to all the details and get everything right if you are get the full benefit from all of your hard work.  Recoverite speeds my recovery so I can be ready for the next workout.

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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and works! I've been using the orange vanilla Recoverite for 4-5 years now and I credit it with a high recovery turnover and ability to train well for anything from a 5k to 100 mile race. I look forward to, no, I fantasize about an icy cold and refreshing Recoverite at the end of any training run or race. I'm starting to think there is an addictive component to it.
Date published: 2014-09-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A key for back to back events! I have worked Recoverite into my training this summer and it had a great impact on my recovery. Additionally, I just complete a 5 day marathon event (5 marathons in 5 days) and was not only able to run every day but also able to get a little faster at the end. It is really a key to quick recovery, faster than anything I've ever used. Exceptional product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite helps recover for REAL I restarted master swimming competition after a 15 year vacation due to a shoulder injury. I still work 50 hour weeks at 68 and still love dealing with people. But when I started again, I would really run out of gas about 3:00 in the afternoon, That was until I found Recoverite. It has really made my afternoons much more productive and attentive. Thanks

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: 2014-07-26
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 Quick recovery I am an endurance and ultra marathon kayak paddler. For a couple years, I used Rocoverite after every paddling session of more than two hours. Now, I now use Recoverite after every gym and paddling training session, because it eases and accelerates recovery. Simply, it is the most beneficial, cost-effective recovery aid that I have found. Try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer Recoverite - Vanilla I began using recoverite while training for half marathons with the Sports Club that I joined. For the first month, I didn't use any recovery drink after our training sessions. Our running coach suggested that I try Hammer Recoverite. I started with the strawberry flavor and then went to the vanilla. After using Recoverite combined with rolling immediately after training, I noticed a significant difference in the amount of muscle soreness. I was able to recover quicker and be ready for the next scheduled run. I have now taken up cycling with the same Health Club and after all of our long rides, I use Recoverite. I began with the strawberry flavor and my personal favorite is vanilla. I even put a scoop of recoverite into the smoothies that I make. Ordering any Hammer product is easy on line and the delivery comes directly as stated. I have only positive things to say about Recoverite and any of the other Hammer products that I have ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer products I've used these products for many years. I have not had any negative experiences with any of their products. I utilize their gels, energy drinks, recovery drinks, and other products. They have some great information on their website, but if you need other assistance you can always call them direct or email them. Great company and staff!!!

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 Excellent Training Aid I've been using Citrus Recoverite following training runs in preparation of my first marathon on July 4. It provides me with post-run carbs and protein in an easily digestable and convenient drink. I haven't been as sore the following day after a long training run after drinking Recoverite, compared to other products I previously used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taste SO GOOD! "The flavor is refreshing after a hard workout, and easy on the stomach"
Date published: 2014-08-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convienient I do at least half of my workouts on the road and having a formulated drink ready in the the first 30 minutes after a ten mile run is critical. As a master athlete, what I put in the furnace is getting more and more important. Recoverite taste great and does the job. I use the 32 serving at home and take the one servings when I travel
Date published: 2015-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from dream of the recoverite reward! Have used Recoverite for an extended period and love ALL the flavors but the Vanilla tops the list. Toward the end of a hard training ride, I start "dreaming" of the recovery smoothy that I make with Recoverite, fruit and ice. Tastes great but more importantly, the body feels ready to repeat the "pain" the next day. Awesome product!!!
Date published: 2015-07-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff! I was skeptical at first, but no more I have yet to receive the shipment, but I will review my purchases from the past.   Recoverite is a fantastic product and helps me "recover-right!"  I make a habit of drinking it right after my rides and the next day I can get out and do it all again.   This has changed the game entirely for me.  I like the chocolate flavor the best.
Date published: 2014-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity! I don't think I'd be able to train effectively on a regular basis without Recoverite. Because of the early morning hours of my job, a physically demanding job I might add, all of my workouts are in the afternoon. I drink it after every workout and I'm ready to go in the morning and even ready for another workout later that day.
Date published: 2015-08-15
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.
Date published: 2014-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite - Staple for any Endurance Athlete I have used Recoverite as a sole staple in my recovery for multiple years. As an endurance athlete, relying on proper nutrition is not enough to fully recover, stay healthy, and remain energized for a high volume of workouts in addition to "normal" life. If you are serious about your fitness, why chance getting run down.
Date published: 2014-03-13
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.
Date published: 2014-09-26
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!
Date published: 2014-06-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste, and great for recovery I've used Recoverite for about 5 weeks now, and can definitely tell a difference in my recovery time. I typically log about 55 miles per week over 6 days, and feel like I'm much more fresh towards the end of the week than I used to be. I think I like the orange flavor more, but the Strawberry is still quite tasty.
Date published: 2014-01-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite after every ride/workout I began using Recoverite a little less than a year ago. I have definitely noticed a difference, in terms of the way my legs feel a day later. Less sore, and I don't feel like my legs are made of concrete blocks. I started using it after indoor trainer sessions and weight training too. Citrus tastes great....
Date published: 2014-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoverite is Dynomite!!!! I'm on my 4th 32 serving container of Recoverite. This is the second chocolate. I don't know how you guy's did it...but with cold water, and a couple ice cubes in the blender it's just like a chocolate shake! Great Flavor!! I alway's go for a double after a hard workout on the bike here in the Owens Valley.
Date published: 2014-06-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for any athlete!!! This is a must have for any athlete!  I am an Ironman and Recoverite is a must after every workout.  When I don't take it I can really tell a difference the next day (I'm still sore and tire).  This stuff really works and helps you recover quicker which is important in any training or racing situation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from recoverite strawberry Great product, great feeling to immediately (post training) put this down knowing that at a min I am helping my body recover even if I don't have the time to immediately prep a post work out meal, enjoy the taste and it does take the edge off appetite wise until I have the time to prep a clean meal.
