VEGA Recovery Accelerator is the first recovery drink mix to address all six key elements of post-workout recovery. This is what you want in order to diminish the recovery time necesssary between workouts in order toprofit from all your efforts.

The 6 key elements of post workout recovery

The following are the 6 key elements necessary for post workout recovery:

-Replenishing glycogen in the muscle tissue

-Hormonal rebalancing

-Soft tissue repair

-Immune system support

-Reduction of inflammation


Glycogen is stored carbohydrates in the muscles. It becomes depleted when you workout and it needs to be replaced. The best way to to that is by giving your muscles some carbs and some protein in a ration of 4 to 1. The small amount of protein is necessary to push the carbs back into the muscles. High intensity training or prolonged endurance training can put your hormones out of balance. It can cause cortisol to go up and testosterone to go down. That can cause unexpected weight gain as well as sleep quality to get poor. L-arginine is an amino acid and that can help to lower cortisol levels. Tendons, ligaments and cartilage can take a real beating during training. But as with muscles, good nutrition can help speed the recovery. Glocasamine helps with joints and cartilage. It's especially good for runners. Devils claw helps with joint pain and zinc helps with connective tissue. Soft tissues have minimal circulation, cayenne supports circulation to replenish and repair them by adding more oxygen and nutrition in soft tissue. Hard athletic training actually impairs immune function. That's why a lot of athletes get colds and respiratory infections when they have been training the most and when they get the fittest. VEGA Recovery Accelerator has astragalus, American ginseng and zinc to boost immune function. Training breaks down muscle tissue and that creates inflammation and this is the greatest limiting factor to athletic succes. You need to reduce inflammation if you want to train sooner. Turmeric can help reduce inflammation. That can allow you to do more training in less time.

Easy to use!

Use VEGA Recovery Accelerator to speed up recovery time between your workouts. This game changer will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to conquer your next workout with enthusiasm. It's necessary to take the powder 20 minutes after the end of your training. It's important to use only water when mixing in the powder so as to not change the carb to protein ratio.
