Results and Recovery Formula

If you're doing a hard core workout like Insanity, P90X, Turbofire, etc. have you tried Results and Recovery Formula? I'm not kidding this stuff is awesome and tastes great in an orange cream flavor! It will help to reduce muscle soreness and replace what electrolytes you lost during an intense workout. Studies have shown that this one hour "window of opportunity" is the key to muscle recovery. With the right balance of nutrients you can improve your body's ability to recover by 100%!  The product comes in single packets of powder which you simply mix with water, no blender needed. It provides all of the nutrients that your body needs to recover quickly after intense workouts so that you’ll maximize the benefits gained from any workout by helping your body rebuild, recover, and refuel. And if you're still thinking why bother with a recovery drink, here's the technical breakdown of why it's important:
The goal of post-exercise nutrition is to replenish the glycogen stores and to encourage protein synthesis. Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of glucose, the molecule used to build glycogen. By ingesting carbohydrates, you rapidly replenish your glycogen stores. This is important because consistently low glycogen stores lead to a breakdown of muscle protein and a loss of muscle mass. Carbohydrates increase the body’s insulin concentration. Insulin is essential for glycogen and protein synthesis. Carbohydrates also promote the release of growth hormone, which promotes protein synthesis, which in turn leads to increased muscle mass. Finally, carbohydrates decrease cortisol concentration. Cortisol, also known as a “stress hormone,” is released in response to both physical and psychological stress. During a workout, cortisol levels are increased, causing muscle protein to break down. - Dr. Seaton
