Issues of taste aside, I don't find this 'recovery drink' does what it says it does. Both my wife and I did our third round of P90X. Prior to starting we ordered the recovery drink. We both suffer from post-workout fatigue, cramps and so forth. I wanted to see if this helped. I like trying to accurately review products so we switched off using the drink every 3 weeks and tracked every day how we felt after the workout, 1 hour after the workout, and 12 hours after the workout. We also measured the improvement in performance for workouts following the use of the drink. And measured frequency of cramps and any other physiological effects. In short we didn't notice any difference in anything. Statistically we felt the same and performed similarly with or without the drink. Cramp counts were the same. It just didn't seem to do anything.

My main concern with this product however is the sugar. There are two problems. First they use fructose instead of glucose as the primary carbohydrate. They use some glucose (dextrose) but the first ingredient is fructose. If you think fructose ("the fruit sugar") is good for you then disregard my review. But anyone familiar with the work of Robert Lustig knows how damaging fructose can be. You can do your own research and make your own call on that one. At the very least they should have mitigated the fructose absorption with a fiber additive.

The second problem is that each drink contains 36 grams of fructose. This is basically the amount of sugar in a 12oz can of cola.

The other thing to note is the research papers cited in the product description. I wanted to see what these papers actually had to say and it's interesting.

Eating food after working out makes sense.

There's a fair amount of research that shows that eating protein and carbohydrate after training helps decrease muscle breakdown and increase protein synthesis rates. This is why I've always followed my workouts with about 30 to 40 grams of protein and about 1 gram of carbohydrate per kilogram of body weight, and I like to think it has helped me make more gains in the gym.

I used this P90X product daily until the bottle ran out and it tasted fine but I can't say I've noticed any difference in my workouts or how I feel after training and eating. My cheap and tasty omelette and bowl of oatmeal seems to be equally effective for post-workout nutrition as this expensive supplement.

So, it's back to eggs and oats for me. You may want to consider trying the same thing before buying protein supplements with simple added sugars like this.

Before I sign off I think it's worth mentioning that one post-workout recovery supplement I HAVE found helpful is LEGION Recharge, Naturally Sweetened Post-Workout supplement with Creatine for Muscle Growth & Muscle Recovery, Fruit Punch, 60 Servings. It's not a protein or carbohydrate supplement--it contains creatine, L-carnitine L-tartrate, and corosolic acid--and I've noticed a significant increase in strength in the gym and decrease in muscle soreness on the days following training.

Many of the reviews here comment about the better taste in the original P90X Results and Recovery Formula. One of the reviews mentioned the switch away from fructose in the reformulation, which is true. Let me add more facts about the ingredient changes and then some subjective comparisons. First, the facts.

The primary ingredient in both formulas is still sugar, which is why this drink serves primarily as a carbohydrate replacement after a workout. The "new and improved" formula removes the fructose. The primary sugars in the old formula were fructose, dextrose and maltodextrin (in that order). The new formula's sugars are primarily dextrose and maltodextrin. Besides the sugar change, the biggest change seems to be the new formula contains half the fat and twice the dietary fiber of the old formula.

Fat facts: The old formula contains 2g of fat per serving, with 30mg of cholesterol. The new formula has 1g of fat and 20mg of cholesterol -- half the fat and 1/3 less cholesterol. However, the new formula contains about twice the amount of saturated fats, from 0.5g in the old to slightly less than 1g in the new.

Most of the actual ingredients remain the same, although the new formula apparently contains no artificial flavors, which the old formula did. Both still provide 700mg of L-arginine, 500mg of L-glutamine and 500mg of creatine monohydrate per serving. Both contain 220 calories per serving and the serving size is still 60g.

What's the same or nearly the same?

For those who own insanity we can all agree that we end up really sore in the first few days and I always stopped doing the work out because of that. This is my third time trying to finish insanity so I decided to buy this and trust me it really works. I didn't feel as sore the day after. If you drink this it will It help you recover for the next workout and you'll feel energized. Before I bought this I read some reviews that said the taste is horrible to be honest it's not, It's ok to me its like a creamy orange flavor but I don't find it to be horrible. The purpose of this product is to get you recovered for your next intense workout, trust me it works 100 I would recommended it to anyone.
