Recover Surge - Key Ingredients

Key Ingredients

Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin)

This carbohydrate was first introduced in Japan and has gained recognition for its mix ability, ultra low osmolarity and ability to pass through the stomach and intestines quickly. This is ideal for post training glycogen reloading. Additionally, cluster dextrin improves the solubility of other ingredients that are absorbed with it. In any nutritional formula, it is essential that the nutrients found in it are available for ingestion and soluble in water or other liquids. Cluster Dextrin helps with this by passing through the stomach and intestines very quickly and pulling along with it, the other ingredients found in Recover Surge. This makes each ingredient in Recover Surge more soluble and more readily available once consumed. Unless a high-performance formula can be delivered to the bloodstream, it accomplishes very little once it is taken into an athlete’s body. Cluster Dextrin is cholesterol free and is actually shown to bind to fats in the bloodstream.

L-Citrulline Malate

The combination of L-Citrulline and Malic Acid creates Citrulline Malate. The organic compound L-Citrulline was first discovered in 1914 in watermelon. In fact, its name is derived from citrullus, the Latin word for watermelon. L-Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is known for its ability to enhance athletic performance. It is turned into L-Arginine and Nitric Oxide in the kidneys and is important for heart and blood vessel health as they help arteries relax and work better. By improving blood flow throughout the body, oxygen and nutrient circulation increases and supports muscle cells better. L-Citrulline also helps the body eliminate toxins, such as lactic acid and ammonia, from muscles to assist in the recovery process. The addition of Malic Acid promotes further energy replenishment by increasing ATP production & enhancing creatine regeneration.


This organic compound was first discovered in 1827 by German scientists in bulls, in fact, its name is derived from the Latin word Taurus meaning bull. It is an organic acid widely distributed in body tissues. It is essential for cardiovascular function and development as well as ensuring proper function and maintenance of skeletal muscles, the retina and the central nervous system. There is evidence Taurine has many positive effects on the nervous system. Taurine may help alleviate oxidative stress on the body after strenuous exercise. There are promising positive effects on the heart, blood pressure and circulation. Researchers are still unlocking the potential of Taurine especially as it relates to athletic performance. Though Taurine is widely found in the body, as with many nutrients, rigorous amounts of exercise tend to lower the amount available so, Taurine supplementation is practiced among elite athletes.


For athletes, muscles and tendons require more glutamine than a normal diet can provide. Following an intense workout, the levels of cellular glutamine in an athlete’s body can drop by 50% and plasma levels can drop by 30%. This “muscle wasting state” is a gateway for the body to use its muscles for energy rather than carbohydrates. However, supplementing with glutamine can prevent this “muscle wasting state” from happening. Supplementing with glutamine improves muscle building efforts, boosts the metabolism, improves recovery and supports athletic performance. Studies have found that glutamine supplementation makes it possible to recover quicker from intense training sessions because it improves muscle hydration. This aids the muscle recovery process, as well as reduces recovery time for wounds and burns. One of glutamine’s main roles in the body is to support detoxification by cleansing the body of high levels of ammonia. Glutamine supports detoxification and acts as a buffer and converts excess ammonia into other amino acids, amino sugars and urea. Supplementing with glutamine is an excellent method of boosting the immune system (T-helper cells) and fight infections and diseases. Studies have also reported that glutamine naturally helps with human growth hormone secretion. This hormonal response aids with resting metabolic rate and supports lean muscle mass.


Creatine was first identified in 1832 and in 1912 at Harvard University, evidence was discovered that supplementing with creatine can boost its content in muscles. While creatine’s influence on physical performance has been well documented since the early twentieth century, it came into public view following the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. The Times reported two British gold medalists in the 100 meter and 400-meter hurdles were “creatine users”. In 1993 creatine, became commercially available and has been used for its sports performance benefits ever since. More recently creatine has gains recognition for its post-training recovery benefits. By consuming creatine post-training athletes replenish creating stores and cellular energy faster, which is the body’s first step in the recovery process. This allows the body to focus on repairing muscle damage faster and ultimately speed the recovery process. Although Recover Surge is formulated using a blend of four high-quality creatines, its main form of creatine is Creapure™. Creapure™ is manufactured using a patented process that results in a more pure form of creatine and ensures it’s free of impurities and unnecessary by-products including Creatinine (CRN), Dicyandiamide (DCD), Dihydrotriazine (DHT) and Thiourea. Creapure™ is 99.99% pure Creatine Monohydrate. Other forms of creatine found in Recover Surge include Creatine HCL, Creatine Magna Power® and Creatine Alpha-Ketoglutarate. Recover Surge also contains Vanadium to improve creatine absorption.
