WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RECOVERITE & ORGANIC VEGAN RECOVERITE? IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE OF ONE OVER THE OTHER IF I'M OMNIVOROUS?
Recoverite contains whey protein isolate, while Organic Vegan Recoverite contains organic pea protein. If you is adhering to a vegetarian/vegan diet, the latter is an excellent protein source. Considered the least allergenic of all protein sources, organic pea protein is also regarded as arguably the easiest plant protein to digest.
Organic pea protein contains an excellent amino acid profile—it’s a rich source of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine—and is gluten-free and lactose-free. That said, there is no better protein source than whey protein isolate when it comes to bioavailability and Essential Amino Acids (EAA) content, including the three branched-chain amino acids. There are a number of additional benefits attributed to whey protein isolate that no other protein source can offer. You can read more about this at Stay Strong and Stay Healthy.
DOES RECOVERITE CONTAIN SOY?
Q: I’m allergic to soy. Does Recoverite and/or Organic Vegan Recoverite contain soy?
A: Neither product contains any soy or soy protein.
WHAT IS ERYTHRITOL, WHICH IS IN ORGANIC VEGAN RECOVERITE?
Erythritol is a natural sweetener, which, like xylitol, is classified as a polyol. Erythritol, unlike xylitol and other polyols, contains no calories. It is also non-glycemic and considered suitable for people with diabetes because it does not raise plasma glucose or insulin levels. Like xylitol, erythritol also promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay.
IS RECOVERITE AND/OR ORGANIC VEGAN RECOVERITE SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS?
Both Recoverite and Organic Vegan Recoverite are most definitely suitable for diabetics. Shortly after exercise—ideally within the first 30 minutes after it has been completed—when the glycogen synthase enzyme is highly active and when insulin is needed to work with glycogen synthase to convert ingested carbohydrates to glycogen for storage in the muscles, a high-glycemic index (GI), insulin-releasing/spiking carbohydrate such as maltodextrin is highly desirable. Aside from shortly prior to, during, and immediately following exercise, we do not recommend consuming high-GI carbohydrates, including maltodextrin. Additional Note: Maltodextrin is the ideal choice for pre-diabetic and diabetics, as long as its use is limited to during exercise and immediately after. As just mentioned, at all other times we recommend consuming low-to-moderate glycemic index carbohydrates. It’s important to mention that a sizable number of our clients are Type I and Type II diabetics, including sponsored athlete Peter Van Rompaey, and they find our maltodextrin-containing products to be ideal for them.
Mixing: Mix 1-2 scoops (or more depending on body weight) of Vegan Recoverite with 4-8 ounces (approx. 118-237 ml) or more of cold water.
Usage: Consume immediately after exercise. If you are unable to eat a healthy meal within 2 hours of completing exercise, consume a second serving of Vegan Recoverite 60 minutes later to further enhance recovery. Vegan Recoverite can also be used as a meal replacement product. Do not replace more than two meals per day.
Organic Maltodextrin (From Tapioca) – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s energy (glycogen) stores after exercise.
Organic Pea Protein – Considered the least allergenic of all protein sources, organic pea protein is also regarded as arguably the easiest plant protein to digest. Organic pea protein contains an excellent amino acid profile—it’s a rich source of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine—and is gluten-free and lactose-free.
L-Glutamine – The most abundant amino acid in the muscles, L-glutamine plays a significant role in the glycogen synthesis process, and helps repair and rebuild muscle tissue. It has also been shown to help raise bodily levels of glutathione, the most important antioxidant for immune system health. Glutamine also contributes to growth hormone release and digestive health.
Erythritol – A natural sweetener, which, like xylitol, is classified as a polyol. Erythritol, unlike xylitol and other polyols, contains no calories. It is also non-glycemic and considered suitable for people with diabetes because it does not raise plasma glucose or insulin levels. Like xylitol, erythritol also promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay.
Full-spectrum electrolyte profile – The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps replenish depleted mineral stores.
Stevia – This is the extract (steviosides) from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to subtropical and tropical Central and South America. Stevia is non-caloric, and does not affect blood sugar levels. Like xylitol, stevia does not support acid-producing bacteria responsible for tooth decay.
L-Carnosine – One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.
Manganese – This trace mineral plays an important role in the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant.
Chromium Polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in energy production and the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.
