It works for me
When I drink this right after returning to my car or campsite after a hard day-long hike I don't have an upset stomach and feel depleted like I used to. Otherwise, although I know I need to eat I have a hard time eating anything more than soup. If I take this I have no problem eating.
I have started taking a dose every morning right before breakfast. I don't know if that does me any good or not. It does seem to make me more ready to eat. It hasn't affected my weight one way or the other.
I like that it mixes up easily with very little residue. The flavor (I use the Citrus) is as good as can be expected from a supplement.
Note: I am 76 years old and my body's response to anything might be different from someone younger's.
Great Recovery Drink
A friend recommended I use Hammer Recoverite while training for a marathon to reduce my recovery time. I was skeptical at first but followed his advice and began using the product after my training runs. After using the product I discovered that my recovery time had dramatically decreased. I was so impressed with the results of the Recoverite that I began training with other Hammer products. I am now training on my road bike in prepartion for a future triathalon event. I am using Recoverite after my rides with the same results. I am always recommending this product to my friends and acquaintances who are training for endurance events and seeking to reduce recovery time after their training sessions. I believe that the product is a little pricey, but well worth the investment if you a are a serious athlete.
Definitely Not "Snake Oil"
I tried this product after some suggestions on my favorite cycling web forum. Needless to say I thought this would be "snake oil", but after the first use I was hooked. I have been training for a 100 mile mountain bike race, and more often than not my legs were just to sore to train 2 days straight. After taking this just once, my legs were not sore later that day, and definitely not sore the next day. I have been using this since then, and have been able to train back to back days with legs that feel fresh and ready to go. i personally like the citrus flavor the best.Bottom line this stuff really works!
Super Fast Recovery!
I started using this from the recommendation of a cycling buddy. After a really hilly ride, I use Recoverite and the next day you would have never know I even rode the day before. I had one of my friends use it after she completed a marathon (and she has a very sensitive stomach) and the next day she was in high heels. She couldn't believe how fast she recovered with no upset stomach. This is a great product! I highly recommend it!
I was skeptical, since, other recovery drinks helped with the soreness. REI had a wonderful sale on Hammer last year and I decided to try it. I had to get over the initial stevia flavor. It took me until the third serving to get used to it. Recoverite is incredible. I've done hard interval rides and trail runs and it does it's job. I did the Cactus to Clouds and I was minimally sore next day.
I use recoverite every day after I work out while training for fire season and races. It keeps my muscles from getting as sore and leaves me feeling more replenished. I choose it because it is more natural than a lot of the other recovery drinks, but am only giving it 4 stars because the price is a little high in my opinion.
Citrus tastes good
This stuff works great. It has about 10 to 15 grams of protein per serving, some amino acids and other good stuff. The best thing is that it dissolves easily in a water bottle after a modest shake. Also, the taste is pretty mellow. I have tried both strawberry and citrus, they taste okay. I prefer citrus.
This stuff is amazing, it worked the very first time I tried it. I get up every morning at 5:30 and go to the gym and this product helps me get out of bed without feeling the sorness from my workouts from the day before, really great stuff. And it tastes great too.
Better than Whey
I usually drink this after running or cycling. The citrus flavor has a mellow taste and isn't really sweet like cytomax. It dissolves more easily than whey protein or other recovery drinks. It has some protein and stuff to restore glycogen stores.
I always have it in stock
I'm an endurance athlete and love this stuff. Easy on the stomach and not too heavy like most protein shake mixes. Also, mixes well with water, good for backpacking trips or climbing mountains.
