Genuine Health's Activrecover+
Joel and I started taking this post-workout supplement a couple months ago and even brought the individually packaged servings of it with us to help ensure our nutritional needs were met during our 150km stage race in Costa Rica, The Coastal Challenge. We are finding extremely beneficial to our immediate post-workout recovery as is Activrecover+ is specifically designed to:
- Rebuild weakened muscles while maintaining blood sugar levels
- Restore energy
- Decrease recovery time between workouts
One of the great things about this sports nutrition supplement is it's amazing healthy attributes. It contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives. (This is pretty difficult to find in a lot of sports supplements as tons of them are full of weird dyes, unpronounceable chemicals and who knows what else that makes you tingle or twitch?! lol) This product is also gluten-free and 100% vegan- containing no dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, yeast or animal products. It is made out of such ingredients as pea and potato protein isolates, sprouted brown rice and citrus juice. YAY!
The other great thing is the taste! Even though its made of natural ingredients, it actually tastes great! It has a nice citrus orange taste that isn't too sweet, but it is surprisingly creamy! It reminds me of an orange creamsicle! And let's be honest.. who doesn't want to eat Creamsicles after their workout?!
I love making a smoothie out of it in the blender. For a simply quick delicious post workout shake all you need to do is:
- Add 3 ice cubes into a blender
- One frozen banana broken into pieces
- One handful frozen berries or fresh berries
- Two scoops Activrecover+ (around 140 calories)
- Almond, coconut or any other type of milk (or water if you prefer)
- Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Another great thing about this recovery supplement is that you don't need to add any BCAA's or sweeteners as it has Creatine monohydrate, L-leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine, L-Glutamine and two types of protein. It is sweetened naturally with Stevia and if you add fruit to your shake it's even yummier! No GMO's and packed full of goodness: that's what I call refreshing!
