Beachbody Performance: Recover
What is Recover?
Recover is a post-workout protein powder from the Beachbody Performance Line rooted in cutting-edge sports science, exercise physiology, and nutrition research. It comes in two flavors, chocolate and orange, which both taste really good! Performance line products were developed by a team led by Dr. Nima Alamdari, Ph.D., who is a Harvard-trained exercise physiology/nutrition scientist, and Beachbody's Director of Scientific Affairs.
Consuming the right nutrients right after a training session is the most effective way to help improve your recovery. Recover does this by providing the proper proteins and phytonutrients to help facilitate muscle recovery and repair while helping reduce the exercise-induced muscle breakdown. Recovers key ingredients help to support muscle recovery while also managing exercise-induced muscle soreness.
Consuming 20 grams of high-quality protein, such as the proprietary blend of proteins in Recover, immediately following a workout has been shown to be key in enable muscle recovery and repair. Recover assures you have a sustained supply of amino acids, the components of protein that serve as your body's building blocks.
Recover also contains branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which are unique among amino acids for helping to promote muscle synthesis.
In the exercise setting, the ellagitannin-rich pomegranate extract in Recover is shown to help reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness and improve strength recovery after intensive exercise such as the Beachbody workouts, making it an important tool in your nutritional arsenal.
