BCAAs – Branched Chain Amino Acids are the parts of proteins that signal for the recovery process to begin. Including supplemental BCAAs in sports nutrition has been demonstrated to reduce soreness, blunt fatigue, and improve endurance performance.

ActiGin – ActiGin is a patented ingredient derived from ginseng. It functions to maintain the integrity of cellular membranes, which are damaged during intense exercise. Research with ActiGin has found a decreased inflammatory response to exercise which led to fatigue resistance.

KSM-66 Ashwagandha - Ashwagandha is an herb that acts as an adaptogen. This means it can reduce anxiety, cortisol, and exercise-induced stress.

FruiteX-B - Supported by over a decade of research showing significant improvements in joint comfort and inflammation.

VitaCherry Sport - Delivers the full complement of phytonutrients from whole U.S. grown Montmorency tart cherries. These natural compounds have been shown to work synergistically to boost antioxidant power and promote healthy inflammatory responses in connection with exercise.

CuroWhite - Curcumin, a supplement derived from the spice turmeric, is a safe anti-inflammatory and pain reducer.

Bioperine - BioPerine is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum noted to stimulate amino acid transporters, facilitating greater uptake of amino acids into the bloodstream. It also enhances the bioavailability of several of the most frequently used daily health supplements including curcumin (2000% increase), vitamins, and minerals.

Capsimax - Derived from capsaicin, Capsimax has analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Maca Powder - Demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory properties. It helps the body deal with stress, balance hormones, and regulate energy levels.

What is the best way to take RecoverElite X?

As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop (9.1 grams) of RecoverElite X in 8-10 ounces of water and drink immediately post-exercise. For optimal recovery, mix 1 scoop of RecoverElite X and 2-3 scoops of RecoverElite in 16-20 ounces of water and drink immediately post-exercise.

What's the difference between RecoverElite and RecoverElite X?

RecoverElite X acts as a natural anti-inflammatory/pain-relieving agent and reduces muscle oxidative stress. Regular RecoverElite ingredients act to replenish muscle glycogen (via carbs), replace electrolytes, and provide protein for muscle repair. When put together you can see how they complement one another as the ingredients all do different things to help you bounce back quicker from training.

Should I take RecoverElite X after every workout?

We recommend taking RecoverElite X after extremely hard workouts and during intense train blocks to help keep acute inflammation at bay.

What other EndurElite products should I take with RecoverElite X?

For optimal muscle repair and recovery we recommend our regular RecoverElite, Creatine Elite, JointElite, and SleepElite.

Best recovery supplement to date

I love reviver elite x. When I take this after an extremely hard workout I’m noticeably less sore than if I wouldn’t have taken it! I just wish they would restock the product! Nothing else on the market compares hands down.

Kyle N
Best recovery product on the market

By far the best recovery supplement on the market. Tastes is great. Even better in a smoothy. 80x OCR athlete.

Gets you ready for your next session fast

I didn't realize how much a supplement could help me recover from a killer workout session so well. I've been drinking this regularly after hard training and it makes such a difference from the times that I don't drink it. It also tastes so good alone or mixed in either flavor of the regular recover Elite!

Brint Hastert
