HOW IT WORKS
Get ready for a whole new way to recover: EAS Recovery Protein is an advanced recovery support, aiding muscles in 3 ways: Revigor® HMB® accelerates protein synthesis to promote muscle growth.† Whey protein provides the building blocks for muscle repair. A sustained-energy carb blend helps refuel and recharge the body.*
1.5g of Revigor HMB: Helps muscles recover by protecting muscle tissue, preserving muscle cells, and promoting muscle growth†
20g of whey protein: Rapidly-absorbed protein provides the building blocks for rebuilding muscle*
2:1 Carb-to-protein ratio: Features a sustained-energy carb blend of waxy maize, isomaltulose, and maltodextrin to restore energy to depleted muscles*
RUNNING ON EMPTY?
When you exercise, muscle fibers are damaged and energy stores are depleted. Here’s what’s happening inside the body, and how to bring it back to normal:
Carbs are needed to rebuild muscles & increase energy.
SOLUTION: Increase energy stores for recovery and rebuild muscle tissue.
Muscles are broken down and fatigued.
SOLUTION: Get adequate protein to help repair and replace damaged muscle tissue.*
Stress hormone levels are elevated as a result of exercise.
SOLUTION: Eat a combo of carbs & protein to help promote healthy production of hormones.*
COMBINE & CONQUER
It doesn’t matter whether you’re working out for endurance or to build muscle. Optimal recovery takes a combination of carbs, protein, and REVIGOR HMB to restore energy, preserve and protect muscle cells, and build and repair muscle tissue.*†
There is a constant flux inside the body between making new muscle protein and breaking down old muscle protein. In order to increase muscle size, muscle protein synthesis needs to exceed breakdown. To achieve this, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), in addition to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, recommends the following daily intakes specific to the type of training being performed:
Carbohydrates are the major, high-octane fuel sources for exercise. Along with fat and protein, carbohydrates are essential macronutrients that give you energy. Post-workout, experts recommend a combination of waxy maize, isomaltulose, and maltodextrin to sustain glycogen synthesis and help deliver energy to depleted muscles.*
HOW REVIGOR HMB WORKS
REVIGOR HMB aids muscles post-workout in 3 ways:
It is most important for REVIGOR HMB to be available to muscles immediately post-workout. So, 2 servings throughout the day (1.5g per serving), with one of them coming right after a workout, is recommended (Wilson et al 2008).*
PUTTING HMB TO THE TEST
In a randomized, blind experiment, 41 healthy adults, ages 19–29, were given a protein supplement with and without HMB. They then weight trained 1.5 hours a day, 3 days a week for 3 weeks. At the conclusion of the experiment, the HMB group’s overall muscle strength increased by 18%, more than doubling the 8% the control group increased (Nissen et al 1996).*
IS ALL HMB THE SAME?
NO. It is important to look for the real HMB to know you are getting the form of HMB that has actually produced beneficial results in clinical studies. The REVIGOR HMB found in EAS products uses the specific form of HMB (calcium beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) from Metabolic Technologies, Inc., that has been most thoroughly investigated in clinical studies (Abumrad et al 2011).
THE RECOVERY WINDOW
Optimal recovery is all about timing. After your workout, there is a 30-45 minute window of opportunity during which your body is most receptive to repair, recovery, and energy restoration.
