Recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner. Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator replenishes your system, repairs muscle tissue, and reduces inflammation to assist in recovery.
Muscle glycogen replenishment
Consuming a 3- to 4-to-1 ratio of easily digestible carbohydrates to protein is the most effective way for your body to replenish glycogen. Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator delivers a 4-to-1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein from whole grain brown rice syrup and sprouted brown rice protein.
Exercise is a complementary stress. It acutely elevates stress hormones, especially cortisol, but if the stress is managed, has long-term positive effects. Stress from uncomplementary sources (such as overtraining, work, family, relationships, etc.), can lead to chronically elevated cortisol levels that have been linked to various health and performance issues. There is emerging evidence that the amino acid L-arginine can help to reduce cortisol levels, while supporting healthy hormone levels.
Soft tissue repair
It’s not only muscles that need to be repaired after exercise. The soft tissue, which connects and supports organs, joints, and muscles should also be repaired. Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator contains glucosamine, devil’s claw and cayenne to support soft tissue repair. Glucosamine is a micronutrient which nourishes your soft tissue, and has been shown to help maintain joint health. Devil’s claw is traditionally used in herbal medicine to relieve joint pain. Cayenne is used in herbal medicine to support circulation—which helps bring oxygen and nutrients into soft tissue to speed recovery.
Immune system support
Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator features several supplements that support immune function, including zinc, astragalus and American ginseng. Zinc is a mineral that supports immune system health and muscle regeneration. Astragulus is an herb that is used in traditional Chinese medicine to support immune health. American ginseng is used in herbal medicine to support a healthy immune system.
Inflammation is how your body heals from the micro-muscle tears caused as you break down muscle during a workout. While Inflammation is necessary, it also inhibits training progress, as it temporarily limits muscle function due to increased muscle soreness and stiffness. Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator contains turmeric—which includes the active compound curcumin—and is used in traditional herbal medicine to help reduce inflammation.
Last, but not least, replenishing the electrolytes eliminated during exercise is a crucial step in recovery. Calcium, chloride, magnesium, potassium and sodium are key electrolytes, which regulate the flow of nutrients and waste in and out of cells, making them essential for muscle contractions and general nerve function.
