INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN:

Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s energy (glycogen) stores after exercise.

Whey Protein Isolate – The most bioavailable of all protein sources and the superior source of amino acids for muscle tissue repair and immune system support. Whey protein isolate also provides potent anti-inflammatory benefits.

L-Glutamine – The most abundant amino acid in the muscles, L-glutamine plays a significant role in the glycogen synthesis process, and helps repair and rebuild muscle tissue. It has also been shown to help raise bodily levels of glutathione, the most important antioxidant for immune system health. Glutamine also contributes to growth hormone release and digestive health.

Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids. During recovery, chromium facilitates carbohydrate storage (glycogen synthesis).

L-Carnosine – One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.

Full-spectrum electrolyte profile – The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps replenish depleted mineral stores.

Manganese – This trace mineral plays an important role in the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant.

Glycine – This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to Recoverite’s delicious flavor.

Xylitol – This natural sweetener, found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables, promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay. NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.

Stevia – This is the extract (steviosides) from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to subtropical and tropical Central and South America. Stevia is non-caloric, and does not affect blood sugar levels. Like xylitol, stevia does not support acid-producing bacteria responsible for tooth decay.

Reduce soreness and increase energy after a hard workout

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sometimes I use the Chocolate Recoverite mixed in with ice coffee after a hard morning bike ride or swim or both. That really kick starts my day and by noon I'm ready to get a good run in. It really helps recovery and provides energy for days with multiple workouts. On long training days, I enjoy Chocolate Recoverite with a fruit smoothie soon after the workout is completed. Again, it helps with recovery so I'm able to get a good workout in the following day.

Q

I am a 55 year old male with Type 2 Diabetes. I currently take metformin 500 mg 2x/day and Tradjenta 5 mg 1x/day. I lift weights 5-6 x/week with about a 2 hours of cardio per week. Is Recoverite suitable for me ? thank you

Asked by Paul
Verified Reply - SteveFirst, whenever a person is on prescription medications, it is extremely important that they discuss the possible use of supplements or fuels with their doctor, prior to using them. That said, after a cardio workout, when glycogen stores have been depleted, it is essential that they be replenished. That's when the complex carbohydrate component in Recoverite--the whey protein isolate and glutamine as well in a supporting role--is needed to help replenish depleted fuel (glycogen) stores in the muscles, and the sooner you can get this fuel in your body, the better. We use maltodextrin (complex carb) in our fuels, and, because of its high glycemic index, it is ideal for fueling the body during exercise, and replenishing glycogen stores shortly after exercise has been completed. Those are the only two times we recommend the consumption of maltodextrin. After a mostly-to-purely strength session, you really don't need the carbs--protein alone is the priority here--so I suggest using Hammer Whey (https://www.hammernutrition.com/products/protein/whey-protein) after those sessions.
Q

What's the difference between Recoverite & Vegan Recoverite? Is there an advantage of one over the other if I'm omnivorous?

Asked by Jom
Verified Reply - SteveRecoverite contains whey protein isolate, while Vegan Recoverite contains organic pea protein. If you is adhering to a vegetarian/vegan diet, the latter is an excellent protein source. Considered the least allergenic of all protein sources, organic pea protein is also regarded as arguably the easiest plant protein to digest. Organic pea protein contains an excellent amino acid profile—it’s a rich source of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine—and is gluten-free and lactose-free. That said, there is no better protein source than whey protein isolate when it comes to bioavailability and Essential Amino Acids (EAA) content, including the three branched-chain amino acids. There are a number of additional benefits attributed to whey protein isolate that no other protein source can offer. You can read more about this at https://www.hammernutrition.com/blog/why-whey/
Q

I just order Recoverite for the first time and have heard so many amazing things about the product. However, I've noticed that the main ingredient is mutlidextrin. A simple search for this ingredient exposes that many people believe that it is worse than sugar and very high on the glycemic index. I understand that it is included in the produced because it is considered a complex carbohydrate, but from my initial understanding, it is not a good additive, particularly when it is the main ingredient? Also, since the ingredient is so high on the glycemic index, is this a good product to use when someone is trying to be fat adaptive?

Asked by Phillip
Verified Reply - SteveWhen you finish an exercise session, two things are highly active for a relatively short period of time--one is an enzyme known as glycogen synthase and the other is insulin. Glycogen synthase is responsible for taking your carbohydrate intake and converting it into glycogen for storage in the muscles and liver. You have depleted your bodily stores of glycogen, so it's crucial to "refill the tank" so that you have those stores replenished and ready for tomorrow's workout. Insulin, along with glycogen synthase, is what drives this glycogen into the muscle cells. One reason why maltodextrin is ideal for post-workout carbohydrate replenishment is precisely because of its high glycemic index rating. With the activity of insulin and glycogen synthase only remaining at high levels for a very short time, a quick-acting carbohydrate source is not only ideal, it's quite necessary. The quicker acting the carbohydrate source, the quicker you will kick-start the glycogen restoration process. Additionally, complex carbohydrates like maltodextrin will match body fluid osmolality parameters in more calorie-dense solutions as compared to simple sugars like glucose, sucrose, and fructose. This simply means that you will be able to digest more calories--without any delay from entering and exiting the GI tract--with maltodextrin than you can with any one- or two-chain simple sugar. The other time when a high glycemic index carbohydrate is ideal is during exercise, and it is for exact same reasons that it's the right choice for post-workout glycogen restorage. As mentioned before, the carbohydrate source in our fuels is maltodextrin, which is a high-glycemic index (GI) carbohydrate source so it will spike your blood sugar. That doesn't sound like a benefit, but this is EXACTLY what you want when you’re engaged in exercise. You don’t want your carbs to take forever to increase your blood sugar/energy levels; you want that energy quickly, and that’s what maltodextrin does. Its GI rating is the same as pure glucose (100) so it definitely increases blood sugar/energy levels quickly. What it doesn’t do, however—and you can’t say this about glucose, sucrose, fructose, and other short-chain carbohydrates/simple sugars—is drop those levels quickly or precipitously. Sugar is more of a “flash and crash” type of energy, while maltodextrin—because it is MANY saccharide molecules weakly linked together—provides a “quick-acting, long-lasting” energy. Another great thing with maltodextrin, as mentioned earlier, is that your body is able to digest a greater amount of calories—with no delay from entry to exit of the digestive tract—and make them available for energy production. You can efficiently digest up to 3x more calories with maltodextrin than you can with any simple sugar, and that basically eliminates stomach distress issues. As far as insulin is concerned, maltodextrin does elevate blood sugar levels very rapidly and will cause an insulin release. This is not a significant factor during exercise, however, as Dr. Bill Misner explains: "During exercise insulin release is inhibited because sympathetic nervous system hormones are released and, concurrently, exercise augments muscle uptake of glucose from exogenous intake accompanied by lower insulin levels and effects." Basically, what Dr. Misner is saying is that because energy turnover is high, and with the release of specific central nervous system hormones, the body is able to deliver glucose to the muscles with less insulin. Shortly after exercise—ideally within the first 30 minutes after it has been complete—when the glycogen synthase enzyme is highly active and when insulin is needed to work with glycogen synthase to convert ingested carbohydrates to glycogen for storage in the muscles, a high-glycemic, insulin-releasing/spiking carbohydrate such as maltodextrin is highly desirable. IMPORTANT NOTE: Aside from just prior to exercise, during exercise, and immediately following exercise, we do not recommend consuming high-GI carbohydrates, including maltodextrin. As far a restricting carb intake in general is concerned, we are not advocates of a low-carb diet for pretty much anyone, especially endurance athletes. Carbohydrates are the main source of fuel to produce energy, and it is our position that when we purposely cut back too much on our carbohydrate intake it can have a negative impact on performance. We understand that ketogenic diets, at least in the short term, are purportedly beneficial for losing weight; however, there has been an increase in studies that show that this diet is not a healthy practice. Check out these links: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180828085922.htm --- Study author Professor Maciej Banach, of the Medical University of Lodz, Poland, said: "We found that people who consumed a low carbohydrate diet were at greater risk of premature death. Risks were also increased for individual causes of death including coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancer. These diets should be avoided." http://www.drmirkin.com/nutrition/keto-diet-may-lead-to-diabetes.html --- Dr. Gabe Mirkin writes: “A keto diet may increase risk for developing diabetes by preventing your body from responding to insulin, presumably by causing fat to be deposited in the liver.” As far as low-carb diets/low carb intake during exercise is concerned, at one site (https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/why-athletes-need-carbohydrates/), Dr. Rick Kattouf states, "Many athletes avoid carbohydrates in an attempt to teach their body to burn fat as the major fuel source. The thinking has become that consuming carbohydrates and the ability to burn fat do not go together. The truth is that athletes can burn fat and consume carbohydrates. Always keep this statement in mind, 'Fat burns in the carbohydrate flame.' Not only do carbohydrates provide energy for working muscles, they also assist in enabling fat metabolism. In short, carbohydrates need to be present in order for fat to be utilized for energy." [1] A good article that explains this in more detail can be found at https://www.jackkunkel.com/blog/why-do-fats-burn-in-the-flame-of-carbohydrates-/#.WK8f5vnyuM8 Research [2] has shown that when carbohydrate levels are low, a substance known as pyruvate—which is formed during glucose metabolism—is unable to perform its job in the process of creating energy using oxygen (i.e. cellular respiration). When pyruvate is unable to perform its tasks—which it can only do in the presence of carbohydrates—the body’s ability to use fat as a fuel source significantly slows down or halts altogether. This same research shows that without replenishment of adequate amounts of carbohydrates, the body will cannibalize specific amino acids (BCAAs, alanine) from muscle tissues, which not only slows down metabolism, it also causes excess production of fatigue-causing ammonia. Perhaps the most compelling argument against low-carbohydrate diets comes courtesy of an excellent article by highly respected sports nutritionist, Dr. Gabe Mirkin [3]. A key piece of the article reads: Some people believe that if you restrict carbohydrates, you will teach your muscles to burn more fat and preserve their small store of sugar (Metabolism, 2016;65(3):100-10). That is correct, but burning more fat and less sugar for energy slows you down (Nutrients, 2014;6.7:2493-508). The limiting factor to how fast you can move over distance is the time it takes to move oxygen into muscles. Since sugar requires about 20 percent less oxygen than fat does to fuel your muscles, you need to slow down and have less power when your muscles burn fat rather than sugar. [1] https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/why-athletes-need-carbohydrates/ [2] McArdle WD, Katch FI, Katch VL. Exercise Physiology Nutritional. Energy, and Human Performance seventh, edition. 2010 [3] “Low-Carbohydrate Diets Harm Athletic Performance” at http://www.drmirkin.com/fitness/lowcarbohydrate-diets-harm-athletic-performance.html Despite all of the fanfare surrounding the keto diet, we remain 100% convinced that this particular diet DOES NOT enhance exercise performance. We remain equally convinced that carbohydrates are vitally important—they are the key component—when it comes to fueling your body during exercise, especially in regards to being able to use fat as an energy source most efficiently and effectively. We also believe that carbs are extremely important to consume (protein as well) after your exercise session has been completed. The carbs are needed to replenish the muscle cells and the liver with fuel, and the protein will provide the amino acids needed for muscle tissue repair and immune system support.

Q

There are 32 servings in the container. Does that mean there are 32 scoops (and therefore varying servings depending on the user's weight)?

Asked by Bryndis
Verified Reply - SteveEach serving of Recoverite is equal to two (2) scoops. Therefore, there are 64 scoops in a 32-serving container. If you use less than two scoops you will get more than 32 servings from a container.
Q

The chart tops out at 190 pounds. I'm nearly 50% over that. Should I extrapolate to 6 or more scoops?

Asked by Darryl
Verified Reply - SteveActually, the chart suggests a dose of 3-4 scoops for those weighing 190+ lbs (86+ kg), meaning athletes who weigh 190 pounds or higher. That said, on an easy workout day, a dose of 2 scoops is quite sufficient, while doses in the 3-4-scoop range will be more appropriate after your longest workouts. Also, take into account when your next sizeable meal will be... if it's going to be only an hour or so after your workout, then a 2-scoop dose of Recoverite will be totally adequate to kick-start the recovery process. If it's going to be 2 hours or more, then consider using 3-4 scoops of Recoverite ASAP after your workout.
Q

Q

Big fan of Recoverite but when I went to get more the other day I noticed a very prominent State of California Prop 65 warning label on top of the cap. Are you planning to adjust the formula to remove the carcinogen(s)/toxic ingredient(s), and if so, when?

Asked by Brian
Verified Reply - Steve As you probably already know, Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is a California law whereby strict allowable limits for over 800 chemicals have been established for all manufactured goods. These limits are far below those established nationally by the FDA and adhered to only in the state of California. While this sounds like a sensible law on the surface (and indeed one which we at Hammer would tend to support), the devil is in the details. The most problematic matters rest on which products are included, and that it neglects to account for the contamination of our soils as a root cause of this issue. Thus, natural products (such as Hammer products, or other all-natural food products) may surpass these limits due to the soil they’re grown in. Alternately, a “food” devoid of natural ingredients may be listed as clean, even though it’s made with all artificial ingredients, which run no risk of soil-derived metal contents. The law also makes no distinction for products that are actually made WITH these chemicals added (such as garage door openers, batteries etc.) and natural food products that absorb them based on environmental interactions. Lastly, for better or worse, Prop 65 does not require that whole foods be labeled in the same fashion. If it did, most items in the produce aisle would likely be labeled. This is a simple but sad commentary on the contaminated world we live in (and why, for 31 years, we’ve promoted buying local, organic food). By way of example, one serving of commercially grown spinach may contain up to 15 mcg of lead—more than that found in 40 servings of Recoverite. Though only the latter requires labeling. And yes, recent testing has revealed that with the exception of the Vanilla flavor, Recoverite does slightly exceed Prop 65 limitations for lead. All this said, we are a company with the explicit goal of making the highest quality, most healthful products on the planet, and are diligently working on a reformulation of the impacted Recoverite flavors accordingly. Until this is achieved, law requires us to put that sticker on containers of Recoverite going to California. Until then, you need not be concerned and we encourage you not to “throw the baby out with the bathwater.” Just as we would not suggest you cease consumption of vegetables in order to avoid possible soil-based contamination, we suggest you keep up your recovery regime, knowing that the health benefits of doing so far outweigh any possible risks. With all this information shared, should you still feel uneasy with this product, we are of course happy to return or exchange it. Vanilla is a great flavor and fully in the clear, so you can change your consumption accordingly should you so choose. I hope that this answers your questions and alleviates your concerns. If you need more information or clarification, or if you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to call us directly at 800.336.1977. We’re here to help.
Q

How big is a scoop? And, if I weigh 115 at 5'3, one scoop With four oz of water? I work out 6 times/week and learning how to use products best.

Asked by Trish
Verified Reply - SteveA scoop is 50.0 cc, or just about 3.4 Tablespoons. Our dosage suggestion for your weight is to mix 1-2 scoops Recoverite in 4-8 ounces (approx 118-237 ml) of cold water (or more, if desired). If the workout is fairly short and not of too-high intensity, 1 scoop of Recoverite should be sufficiently. Longer, harder workouts will require 2 scoops of Recoverite.
Q

Can I add an extra scoop of whey protein as 2 scoops of Recoverite only has 10 grams of protein?

Asked by Clint
Verified Reply - SteveYou can certainly add one-half to one scoop of Hammer Whey to Recoverite. However, we do not believe this is necessary, as 10 grams of protein (and 3 grams of glutamine) are quite sufficient to kick-start the recovery process. Most people will have a protein-containing, solid food meal within the next hour or two after they consume Recoverite, which is why, while adding more Hammer Whey to a 2-scoop serving of Recoverite is not problematic at all, it's really not necessary.
