Surge® Recovery is designed to stimulate anabolism and jump-start recovery when it's absolutely most important for making gains - post workout. The formula stimulates a hormonal (primarily insulin) surge that drives high concentrations of certain nutrients, supplied by the drink, deep into the muscle cell. This will produce a cascade effect that stops catabolism and stimulates anabolism, big time! In fact, if you took everyone who's having a hard time making progress and just got them to consume ample amounts of the right mix of nutrients post workout, the vast majority would make consistent, continual muscle-mass gains. It's really that simple - and that hard. The hard part of effective post-workout nutrition is determining the right blend of nutrients in the ideal ratios. The good news is, Surge Recovery has taken the guesswork out of the equation. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
