For the past 5 years health and nutrition have been my life. I went through P90X, got AMAZING P90X results, decided to become a Beachbody Coach, and have been obsessed ever since! Because of that obsession, I constantly want to learn more about health a fitness, including certain diets, certain foods, and specific supplements that are and aren’t healthy for you. I have tried many, many different supplements, and there are some I recommend and some I don’t. The P90X Recovery Formula is one that I DEFINITELY recommend, and I hope you find this review helpful!
There are some supplements that I have been taking for years, the P90X Recovery Formula is one of them (Here is another supplement I recommend). Why? What’s the benefit of it? It’s absolutely CRUCIAL that you have proper muscle recovery after a workout, and one way to do so is by taking a post workout supplement within the hour after you finish. When you work out, you deplete glycogen stores, especially if you have an intense work like P90X or Insanity, and it’s important that you replenish those glycogen stores, along with provide the muscles with protein and other essential vitamins to aid in the recovery and repair process. I like the Recovery Formula the best because (1) there aren’t terrible ingredients in it, (2) I have always loved the flavor, and (3) It’s WORKED for me!
If you get anything out of this P90X Recovery Formula Review, I hope it’s that you need to do RESEARCH on each supplement before you use it. There are a lot of supplements out there that claim to be healthy, but really aren’t. Don’t just check the fat, carbs, and protein content either, make sure you thoroughly go through the ingredient list. You’d be surprised as to what some companies put in their supplements! Anyways, I have found that the P90X Recovery Drink has helped quite a bit with my recovery time and the amount of soreness I feel a few days after. Before I used the Recovery Drink, it used to take me sometimes 4-5 days to recover from an intense workout, but since I have used it that time seems to have gone down significantly. Also, the flavor is an orange cream sickle taste, but in all honesty, it used to taste better before the reformulation. The P90X Recovery Formula used to contain fructose (NOT high fructose corn syrup. BIG DIFFERENCE!), but they replaced that with a healthier natural sugar, dextrose, and the flavor sort of got lost a little. However, it’s not enough to cause me to stop taking it. In my opinion, it’s still pretty decent!
