Complete Protein to Build and Repair Strong Muscles
Training breaks down muscle-you have to break down muscle to build it stronger. Consuming protein, especially BCAAs, after a workout helps your body to rebuild muscle, and reduces recovery time. With a reduced recovery time, you'll be able to push harder and train more often, naturally building strength. Vega Sport Performance Protein has 30 grams of protein from pea, alfalfa, pumpkin seed and organic sunflower seed proteins.
Turmeric and Tart Cherry to Manage Inflammation
Turmeric contains curcumin, an antioxidant to support inflammation management post-workout. Black pepper increases absorption of curcumin. Tart cherries are also a rich source of antioxidants. Tart cherry juice supports recovery following strenuous endurance exercise by reducing inflammation, and aiding in the recovery of muscle function.
Probiotics Reduce Recovery Time
Preliminary research suggests that probiotics are important part of athletes' recovery strategy-in reducing muscle soreness and rate of recovery. Pilot studies suggest that consuming a bacillus coagulans with a protein supplement post-workout increases athletic performance more than just consuming a protein supplement.
