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.
