Tailwind Recovery Drink

Recovery from a hard workout is as important as the workout itself, and if you do not recover properly from a workout chances are the next several days are not going to be pretty. Even if you have an easy day planned, you’ll notice it. Riding as little as two hours can put stress on the body and leave it tired. So take care of it, you only have one.

Along with proper nutrition, stretching, rest and a quick recovery drink such as Tailwind’s, tomorrow’s workout just became more enjoyable. What makes the Tailwind Rebuild Recovery mix a bit unique is it’s patent-pending perfectly complete protein formulation.  It’s a combination of an organic rice and coconut milk-based vegan formula that is specially designed to restore your energy and recover muscles after exercise.

The Rebuild Recovery formula is based on essential building blocks your body needs after a workout including carbohydrates, amino acids, electrolytes, and protein.  These help to replace depleted glycogen stores, balance your metabolism, and rebuild broken down muscle fibers

Does Tailwind’s Recovery Drink Work

The short answer is yes. You might be saying to yourself, “well other recovery drinks do that too, so what makes Tailwind’s Rebuild, so unique?” Well that is where it gets a little fuzzy, it is like analyzing two carbon bike frames when you’re not an engineer. Sometimes you just need to test ride them and see the difference yourself.

Word on the street and from my experience, any post workout drink that contains both protein and carbohydrates will help you recover faster right after a workout.  What I like about the Rebuild formula is it is super easy to mix. I don’t need a blender, it does not have that chalk texture and it tastes surprisingly good. Oh, and it works and works well.

Sometimes I even like to up my game and toss in a frozen banana and some almond milk to turn my recovery drink into a version of a smoothie, but that is only when feeling ambitious. Most of the time it is just 2 scoops of Rebuild mixed with 16 ounces or water and done. Tailwind recommends it be shaken, not stirred and to drink it within the first 30 minutes post workout.

So how well did we like Tailwind Rebuild Recovery Drink? Well, I just bought two more bags of their Chocolate recovery drink so that says a lot. At $2.60 a serving for the large bag, it is well worth it. You can also use the promo code TRYTAILWIND15 and save 15% on your first order on tailwindnutrition.com.
