RECOVER | Recovery With Health Benefits

It's a fact - it takes longer to recover as we age. 

That doesn't mean we need to do less. It means we should pay more attention to the kinds of nutrients we're providing our body. If you're finding that it is getting a little harder to recover from your favorite session, it may be your recovery drink that needs to change - not the session!

RECOVER - QUICKLY

Most people understand that taking protein after exercise aids recovery - the protein breaks down into to Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), the building blocks for muscle repair and growth.

When you consume a standard sports nutrition protein shake, you're typically consuming a whey or soya based formulation. What they both have in common is that they are quickly digested. That's important as we need to get working on repair within a short time after exercise.

RECOVER - SLOWLY

HOWEVER - and it's a big "however" - when you get a little older, the repair process itself slows down and for that reason it is also important to balance your fast-digesting protein intake with some slow-digesting protein.

By taking a recovery formulation that includes a slow digesting protein such as casein, you extend the availability of those building blocks to your bodies repair process.

A combination of whey and casein is the optimal formulation for anyone over 35 who's serious about recovering between sessions.

Elivar RECOVER combines whey and casein. It is the ONLY formulation that has been developed specifically to deliver a longer recovery window through an extended availability of proteins to the body.

NMN is a vital precursor to NAD+, a molecule crucial to many biological processes, like cell growth, DNA repair, and metabolism. But as we age, NAD+ levels take a hit, and bolstering them through NMN intake can be beneficial. Now the question arises, can we simply count on our daily meals for our NMN fix?

In the quest for a longer, healthier life, recent studies have found an encouraging connection between endurance and outdoor sports and longevity. One of these studies, conducted by the International Longevity Centre UK, analysed Commonwealth Games competitor records dating back to 1930. The study revealed that top-level athletes can live up to five years longer than the general population, with men's longevity boosted most by 24% - 29% in case of aquatic, track and indoor sports, which translates to between 4.5 and 5.3 extra years of life. Women experienced a 22% increase in longevity across all sports categories equating to 3.9 extra years of life.
