The Science Behind Our Recovery Supplement, Recover 9

If you’re a wellness junkie, you’ve probably heard a thing or two – or 20 – about supplements. There’s vitamin C for immunity, magnesium for sleep and digestion, probiotics for gut health, vitamin B for energy and brain function the list goes on for miles.  

With so many supplements on the market formulated to address and prevent an endless list of concerns, it can be tricky to find what works best for your body’s unique needs.  

Supplements and the Wellness Industry 

The wellness industry is self-regulated in the U.S., meaning supplement companies are not directly controlled by the Food and Drug Administration. Instead, they are required to comply with a list of standards published by the FDA. While this may sound like it makes the supplement hunt all the more complicated, it can actually help streamline the process if you think about it this way: you should only be sourcing your vitamins and supplements from trustworthy, clinically-backed sources that pride themselves on their standards and adhere to strict testing and manufacturing protocols.  

When we kicked off the creation of our first-ever supplement, we collaborated with members of our Clinical Advisory Board to ensure its efficacy and safety was up to par. After years of research, testing, clinical studies and more, Recover 9 was born. It's a new-to-market supplement that works to reduce soreness, restore muscle function, and build lean muscle to help you bounce back to your best workout.   

Why did Pvolve make a supplement to aid post-workout recovery?

Recovery is a key element of Pvolve. Our method teaches you how to tune into your body, and, in doing so, notice the signs that you might be overdoing it.  

How can I benefit from rest and muscle recovery? 

Time for a quick lesson on muscle growth! When you work out, you typically break down muscle fibers. After exercise, the body repairs these damaged fibers by fusing them together to form new muscle protein strands called myofibrils. When the rate of muscle protein synthesis is greater than the rate of muscle protein breakdown, the myofibrils increase in thickness and number, which is a process known as hypertrophy. Hypertrophy equals muscle growth!  

Rest is critical for muscle repair because it prevents overuse of muscle groups, which can lead to injury and dysfunction. If you want to keep progressing in your workouts, you need to be sure you’re taking time to recover so you can keep moving properly and prevent any joint strain.  

Is my workout routine too intense? 

If you aren’t able to maintain proper form while you’re working out, then the answer may be yes.  

According to Antonietta Vicario, Chief Training Officer, "Your workout routine and approach to fitness should be driven by the goals you’re trying to achieve as well as the stage of life you’re in. Ideally, your workouts won’t spike cortisol (your stress hormone) and leave you feeling totally depleted, That’s why high-intensity workouts often leave you feeling so exhausted—getting up to your max throughout the class can cause those hormonal shifts that can make you feel drained.  

But that doesn’t mean you always need to take it easy either. Vicario explains that challenging yourself is also part of balanced workout plan. She says, “Our bodies adapt quickly, so as you build strength and endurance you can safely increase intensity and continue to build on your fitness regimen.” That’s what our new Progressive Weight Training Series is all about—pushing yourself while still moving functionally at the right intensity to keep your body feeling great afterwards.  

How does Recover 9 work?  

Recover 9 is made with a blend of clinically-backed ingredients that help you move better and feel stronger every day: all 9 of the essential amino acids and pomegranate fruit extract. 

What are Amino Acids?

Not sure what amino acids are? Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are critical to proper function. They improve muscle recovery, build lean muscle, and, in our formula, provide the same benefits of 40 grams of protein. And you get all that for a fraction of the calories in Recover 9. 

What is pomegranate fruit extract?

Pomegranate fruit extract is rich in ellagic acid, an antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation. Inflammation is one of the body's natural responses after a good workout and a sign that you're building muscle, but it can also lead to soreness. Consuming pomegranate after exercise, especially when combined with all 9 essential amino acids, can help with this post-workout pain by restoring muscle function.
