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.

I'm about to start the last 30 days of P90X and I have enjoyed the program since day 1. I initially felt like a sucker buying a workout DVD that's featured on late night infomercials, much less a product that was pushed at the end of said infomercial DVD.

I finally broke down a bought the product several weeks ago, after running out of my basic whey protein supplement. I would have used the product from day 1 of P90X, but I had 2 reservations (not including the infomercial aspect):

1. Cost. This drink is significantly higher than other supplements. Especially for someone like me that has never been big on supplements.

2. The negative reviews on the flavor, and how the formula had been changed.

I think the concerns about the flavor are exaggerated. But as the post says: you can't miss what you never had. I'm not a fan of citrus flavors in general, but I actually do enjoy the taste of the drink. If you're having second thoughts based on the taste reviews, I would encourage you to try it for yourself. Beachbody offers a money back guarantee if you don't like it.

Does it work? I've only been using it for several weeks now. Before I had the drink I was mixing up a "poor man's recovery drink" with whey protein and apple juice. I will say that I do have more energy during/after the workouts, and feel better after downing some recovery drink. Placebo effect? Maybe. Correlation doesn't always equal causation. I'm also in the second phase of P90X where the carb allotment in the diet increases... so that will have an impact on energy levels as well.

Many other reviewers have made this point, and I'll reiterate it here. Don't price yourself out of P90X. Don't feel like this drink is a requirement.

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?
