Post Swim Recovery

After logging in laps at the pool, swimmers are no strangers to the hunger that follows. It is important to replenish nutrients within the hour of your swim.

What is the best post-swim recovery snack that will give you the nutrients you need?

Restore

Within the first 30 minutes after a swim, your muscles are primed and hungry to restore carbohydrates back to normal. Carbohydrates are the most efficient source of energy for muscle recovery. The best post-workout meal will be something high in carbohydrates, like bread or crackers.

Rebuild

Studies show consuming protein in addition to carbohydrates after a workout may help your body restore glycogen levels (the storage form of carbohydrate in your muscles) more effectively than just carbohydrates alone. Your muscles will also need the protein to build muscle strength and mass. Try a turkey sandwich or a bowl of chick noodle soup.

Recover

Accelerate your muscle recovery with a post-workout sports drink, like Amino VITAL Rapid Recovery. Unlike ordinary protein powders and sugary sports drinks, Amino VITAL Rapid Recovery combines fast acting plant-based amino acids (BCAAs, Arginine, Glutamine), a touch of complex carbs and electrolytes that are absorbed instantly to repair muscles and replenish energy without extra calories. Have a sweet tooth? Try pouring yourself a nice, cold glass of chocolate milk too!

Amazing for on-the-go recovery and energy. I love that they are vegan and never leave a chemically after taste. I usually bounce around trying different supplements but I’ve been taking these for almost 3 years. I can’t get enough of them!!

I've been feeling really good since cleaning up my diet and cutting refined carbs and sugars. I decided to add this to my supplement regimen for an extra boost. I've felt my brain fog go away and my energy levels stay optimum throughout the day, even when I'm very active. I'm also sleeping well. I'm feeling great and loving this diet and supplement combo.
