Our busy lives demand a lot from our bodies these days. Careers, exercise, family, friends, health, and even diet take a lot of attention and work. This leads to persistent amounts of increased stress that compromises our
physical performance, well-being, health, emotions, and mood. If you’re not intentional about stress mitigation and recovery, it won’t be long until physical and emotional problems arise. Disease, sickness, and injury can all be tied to stress and the harm it causes. The time is now to start making your recovery and health a priority.
To understand stress, you need to first understand a little about your autonomic nervous system and its two divisions; the sympathetic nervous system and the para-sympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetic nervous system, which you are probably familiar with, triggers the ‘fight-or-flight’ response, providing the body with a burst of energy needed to respond to potential dangers.
The para-sympathetic nervous system promotes the ‘rest and recover’ response that helps the body calm after a danger has passed.
Natural nervous system responses were vital for protection when a lion was chasing one of our ancestors. These days we don’t find ourselves in those types of situations (hopefully). Instead a response that was once reserved for life or death type situations gets used constantly in our daily life. Rushing out the door for work, late for a meeting, the alarm blaring in the morning, and even hitting a deadlift personal record are all examples of sympathetic nervous system activators.
Even when the stress is emotional or psychological, a physical reaction in your body occurs, such as increase in heart rate, blood pressure and breath rate.
Over time, repeated activation of this stress response can lead to chronic stress; a contributor to illnesses, fatigue, sleeping difficulties, digestive problems, changes in appetite, anxiety, weight gain, and even depression.
You aren’t recovering well if you aren’t targeting stress
When it comes to your nervous system, exercise can be a double edged sword. Workouts can serve as a great way to reduce mental stress and emotionally recover from stress during the day. I’m sure you have felt the need to “blow off some steam” from time to time.
Your body interprets exercise a bit differently. As you’re running your third mile or working through your fourth set of squats, your body is feeling the increased strain and stress accumulate.
Muscle breakdown, increased free radicals, nutrient depletion, and dehydration are just a few of the factors that are beginning to manifest within our bodies.
When you add the physical stress response to exercise with putting in long hours at work, struggling to balance family and friends, and other stress inducing commitments, your autonomic nervous system is undoubtedly working overtime and never getting the break it needs.
By now you should be very familiar with protein and it’s association with post-exercise recovery. But did you know that whey protein and protein in general is very poor at being utilized for muscle recovery? Protein efficacy is measured by many factors, one being “amino acid utilization” or “net nitrogen utilization.” To simplify what this measure is, let me explain what a protein is.
A protein is a grouping of amino acids bound together via a peptide bond. When you consume a protein such as chicken, fish, or whey, your body breaks the protein into it’s individual amino acids to be used for various bodily functions and in some cases converts the amino acid into glucose to be used for energy, just like any other carbohydrate.
When a protein is measured for “amino acid utilization” the key indicator is how many of the amino acids are being used vs. how many are being converted into glucose.
So, why is this important? If physical recovery is your goal and building/re-building muscle is critical after exercise then understanding the best source of protein to promote recovery is vital to performance, health and well-being. Research shows amino acid utilization from common protein sources is often less than 50% of their content.
The rest of the amino acids go towards excess calories and waste. About 48% of egg protein is utilized by your body, less than 32% for meat, poultry and fish, less than 18% of whey and soy protein, and only 1% of branched chain amino acids are utilized by the body. Crazy right?
All that healthy protein and less than 50% being used for the intended purpose of physical recovery in our muscle and skeletal tissue! So, what is the solution?
When you look at Strong Revive you will find 5 grams of Essential amino acids clinically proven to aid in muscle protein synthesis. This unique blend is backed by science and guaranteed to help your body physically recover.
However, like we’ve already learned, recovery is more than just getting amino acids. It requires the ability to clean up the damage to our cells and toxins created from the various stressors in our lives.
As you’ve already learned by now, amino acids are the building blocks of protein. When bound together they can make up complex protein structures to form things like muscle, ligaments, and hormones – just to name a few.
An essential amino acid means that your body is unable to create them on its own and requires an external source, usually through protein in food or supplementation. These specific amino acids are critical for supporting and maintaining the muscular, skeletal, enzymatic, nervous and hormonal systems of the body.
If these various systems aren’t functioning at their best, sleep, muscle recovery, exercise performance, cognition, digestion, and even your immune system can become compromised.
Essential Amino Acids have up to 99% utilization rate
We have all heard the terms free radical, antioxidant, and oxidative stress. If you haven’t, it’s time to start paying attention because free radicals and oxidative stress are literally killing you.
A free radical is a molecule that’s missing at least one electron causing it to be negatively charged. In an effort to rebalance, this now abnormal molecule seeks healthy cells to steal an electron from turning a once healthy cell into a damaged and mutated cell.
This mutated cell, now down and electron, then steals electrons from other molecules creating a chain reaction of toxic free radical creation. The end result is thousands of damaged cells associated with aging, cancer, diabetes, and coronary artery diseases.
Our bodies have natural defenses that help to clean these free radicals up so they don’t cause harm. However, the creation of these free radicals accelerates as we age and as a result of environmental factors and behaviors such as exercise or pollutants.
In fact, research shows that mental stress is one of the most significant causes of free radical proliferation and in today’s modern world, mental stress is far more prevalent than physical stress.
As these stressors begin to accumulate, our bodies once amazing ability to regenerate cells begins to turn into a cellular degeneration process overwhelming our natural defenses leaving us broken, tired, and sick.
Just like in any good action movie, there is a villain (free radical) and a hero – Antioxidants. These free radical scavengers, find the cells with missing electrons and neutralize them by donating electrons of their own. This then ends the free radical chain reaction and restores balance to your cells.
The big issue occurs when free radical production exceeds the body’s ability to produce antioxidants. If you exercise intensely, live in a polluted area, or have a stressful life, then supplementing your diet with antioxidants is a critical decision that will help with healthy aging, recovery, and athletic performance. In Strong Revive® we used the most powerful natural anti-oxidant on earth, Astaxanthin.
The health benefits of astaxanthin apply wherever our bodies experience damage from free radicals. This is why taking astaxanthin as a dietary antioxidant is so important for muscle endurance, cardiovascular health, skin healthy, eye health, cognitive function, and fighting fatigue.
It’s all about the mitochondria
To fully understand the power of astaxanthin and its benefit in recovery, you must understand the importance of the mitochondria in our cells. When muscles are activated for movement and exercise they use oxygen carried by red blood cells and nutrients from the food we eat to produce energy.
During this process nutrients and oxygen are converted into an energy molecule known as Adenosine Tri-phosphate or ATP. This energy production pathway occurs within the mitochondria found in each cell.
Mitochondria can use sugar, fat, or protein as a fuel to make ATP. However, during aerobic exercise the mitochondria can produce far more ATP (energy) from fat compared to sugar.
Research has now shown that astaxanthin influences the mitochondria to use fat as the preferred nutrient for energy production, greatly improving endurance.
We’ve learned how harmful free radicals can be on aging, recovery, and exercise performance. When these are present at high or persistent levels, mitochondria become damaged and destroyed leaving less energy producers in cells.
Less energy producing mitochondria means less energy output and ultimately poor performance.
When you add the compounding effect of inflammation and muscle tissue damage caused by the constant presence of oxidizing free radicals, you have a recipe for poor recovery, health, and well-being.
The good news is astaxanthin is incredible at neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals. It strengthens the mitochondria by spanning the mitochondrial wall, reinforcing and protecting it from damage. By supporting the mitochondria and neutralizing free radicals, astaxanthin minimizes muscle damage and improves recovery from exercise.
Neutralizes free radicals that can damage mitochondria and surrounding tissues
Increases use of fat over sugar as an energy source for more efficient energy production
Slows down muscle damage that triggers soreness causing inflammation
Combats delayed onset muscle soreness by reducing blood lactic acid levels after exercise
Restores muscle chemistry balance by improving circulation after exercise
The third component of a proper recovery protocol is fluid, electrolyte, and hydration balance. Electrolytes seems to be everywhere these days but ask anyone what they are or why they’re important and you’ll probably get a blank stare. So, let’s dive into what happens to fluid in the body during exercise.
Electrolytes are positively or negatively charged ions that conduct electrical activity. In the human body electrolytes must be present in proper concentrations to maintain fluid balance, muscle contraction and neural activity.
This balance of electrolytes is managed by the kidneys which both conserve and release these nutrients depending on the bodies demands and needs. Water then follows the movement of these nutrients and is drawn into locations with the most concentration.
This means that hydration requires more than just water, it requires water and the electrolytes to move water throughout the body. Drinking plain water after high-intensity or long-duration exercise is not always effective for rehydration. For water to be retained it needs to be consumed with sodium and other minerals.
When you sweat from exercise or stress the importance of electrolytes and fluids becomes even more important. The amounts of nutrients lost in sweat can vary widely from person to person but sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium are all present.
The source of electrolytes you choose can vary widely and will ultimately be determined by the style of activity you are performing. For high intensity long duration style workouts, maybe 60-90 minutes, a sports drink rich in sodium, electrolytes, and carbohydrates may be necessary.
For most of us these sports drinks are unrealistic for the demands of our body. Sure, elite athletes need many special and specific dietary and nutritional boosts but the average person with day to day stressors and exercise won’t need that. In fact, many of these “healthy” sports drinks make it harder to lose weight and live a healthier life.
That is why we made a low calorie formula in Strong Revive with Coconut Water as the primary source of electrolytes.
Coconut water is packed with electrolytes and nutrients such as proteins, amino acids, sugars, vitamins, and minerals. In fact, because it offers higher amounts of electrolytes such as potassium and magnesium than regular sports drinks, coconut water is known as a “natural isotonic sports drink.” It is more effective at replacing electrolytes than sports drinks or just plain water.
Coconut water is also very beneficial for your overall health. Research suggests that coconut water can lower systolic blood pressure and reduce the incidence of heart attacks.
It also helps your body restore healthy pH levels, is a good source of lauric acid which helping to improve metabolism, functions as a prebiotic supporting beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Are you ready for your new super powder?
Now that you understand how critical recovery is to living a healthy life and the complexity of recovery – it might be tempting to run out to buy the first recovery supplement you see. That would be a mistake, though — because most recovery supplements do nothing, for two primary reasons:
Your body is left only partially re-paired before the next days stresses begin and chronic health problems and suboptimal performance begin. Additionally, the toxic chemicals such as artificial sweeteners, dyes, and synthetic ingredients end up hurting and harming our body, a double whammy of bad health. Excess energy is then forced to be spent working on detoxification rather than recovery and potentially building a better you. This is a recipe for poor health, poor recovery, and a waste of money.
