What is Max Recovery?
Max Recovery is a carbohydrate powder designed to mix with your protein powder and water to provide a well balanced post work out recovery drink.
Use Max Recovery to support these physical functions:
- Enhance your glycogen repletion (needed to rebuild after every practice, training session, or work out where you expend energy)
- Increase insulin sensitivity
- Exit the GI tract quickly– quickly digested and absorbed by your body for fast recovery, but slow to break down in the blood stream for continued benefit.
- Increase the rate at which your body re-fills its glycogen stores– give your body what it needs after intense training immediately to recover as fast as possible to feel good and hit the gym again the next day.
What’s in Max Recovery?
Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin: A high molecular weight glucose polymer. What does this mean, compared to regular glucose (dextrose) Because of the molecular weight and low osmality, it 1) exits the stomach quick, 2) is rapidly taken up in the small intestine, and 3) has sustained breakdown in the bloodstream due to being a longer polymer chain.
Corosolic acid(Banaba leaf): Banaba leaf (lagerstroemia speciosa) is a species of tree native to Southeast Asia. The leaves have been used for centuries in traditional medicine as a tea preparation. One of the main components of the leaves, corosolic acid, is utilized by the body to break down carbohydrates (glycolysis). Also of note, an ellagitannin from banaba, lagerstroemin, appears to act as an agonist of the insulin receptor, improving glucose uptake.
R-alpha lipoic acid: ALA is a naturally occurring mitochondrial fatty acid that acts predominantly as an antioxidant; it is also essential for aerobic metabolism. Studies have shown various effects on blood glucose, including better glycemic control, and enhanced uptake of creatine.
