Buy Recuperators Online
Recuperants are sports supplements focused on muscle recovery after physical exertion, find the most complete ones in this section.
What are muscle recuperators?
Muscle recuperators are all those sports supplements that have the purpose of helping the muscles and the body in general to recover after having finished training.
During physical activity, our muscles deplete their nutrient reserves, muscle fibres are damaged and need to be repaired, and the muscle glycogen they have is depleted. Muscle glycogen is the main fuel for muscles during exercise.
Also, through sweat, minerals of vital importance to the body are eliminated: electrolytes, which must be replenished as soon as possible, as well as maintaining proper hydration and providing the necessary fluids.
Muscle recuperators contribute to a better recovery, as well as avoiding the sensation of fatigue, nourishing the muscles, and therefore reducing the recovery time between one training session and the next, and thus being able to maintain performance.
Their composition is very varied. They combine different types or sources of carbohydrates, amino acids and even vitamins and minerals. At Life Pro we offer you a range of muscle recovery products so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs, of the highest quality, and with the aim of helping you to achieve a better and complete recovery.
What are muscle recuperators for?
Muscle recuperators have been designed with the aim of helping you to achieve a better recovery after finishing your workouts, whether endurance or strength training. In addition, among many other specific objectives, we highlight:
They provide the necessary nutrients to achieve a fast and complete recovery, in a simple and easy-to-prepare way. They prevent possible deficiencies from occurring in the body.
They contribute to achieving a more optimal recovery that will favour the next training session, help to achieve our objectives and reduce recovery time, thus allowing us to train with greater intensity and/or frequency.
Glycogen: those recovery products that contain one or more sources of carbohydrates will favour the recovery of muscle glycogen deposits, as these will have been emptied to provide energy to the muscle during the training session.
Electrolyte replenishment: recovery products containing minerals in their composition will promote the recovery of electrolytes eliminated through perspiration. They promote hydration and also carry out numerous functions such as regulating nerve functions and blood pressure.
Promote the recovery of muscle tissue: especially those containing amino acids. They contribute to hypertrophy.
Stiffness or Doms (delay onset muscle soreness) are micro-tears that occur in muscle fibres when we train. They appear between 24 and 48 hours later. The correct supply of nutrients after training can favour their reduction, intensity, or the time they last.
They accelerate the regeneration of tissues and muscle fibres that have been damaged. They can also help to reduce the risk of discomfort such as cramps or possible muscle injuries.
What is the composition of a recovery supplement?
Each sports supplement that acts as a muscle recuperator may have a different composition. Depending on the type of training, endurance or strength, we can choose a recuperator adapted to the objectives and the wear and tear produced.
We can find muscle recovery products in different formats: from gels, powder to be dissolved in water, to prepare shakes or even in the form of bars.
The most common components include:
Carbohydrates: the body's main source of energy: fuel. There are different types of carbohydrates depending on their digestion and assimilation time, as well as how long they take to provide energy. A good muscle recovery product should contain carbohydrate sources that are rapidly assimilated, in order to replenish glycogen stores immediately after training. Some examples are: corn starch or dextrin cycle.
Amino acids or proteins: as this is the macronutrient responsible for repairing these tissues, as well as promoting protein synthesis, via MTor and preventing the loss of muscle mass. Amino acids, such as BCAAS, have the advantage that they do not need to be digested and go directly to the muscle.
Vitamins: to support and strengthen the immune system. Physical activity produces free radicals due to oxidative stress. Vitamins have important antioxidant properties.
Minerals: especially electrolytes. They promote hydration and are necessary, as they are eliminated through sweat.
When to take a muscle recuperator?
The ideal time to take a muscle recuperator is after finishing your workout, within 30 minutes of the end of your workout. At this time, the body is more receptive to using the nutrients we provide it with and will use them optimally.
It will promote muscle recovery, prevent or reduce the feeling of fatigue and ensure that the nutrients are available until the next meal.
