I always get fed up reading other reviews that don't help me figure out if I want to buy a product or not, so I figured I'd write one on a product that works for me.

The P90X Results and Recovery shake is a good combination of after workout Protien, Creatine, and Amino-Acids. What does this mean? It means that it has all of the things that every extreme athelete is looking for after a solid workout.

I'm a health nut, and I was already a body builder before I started the P90X system. While my normal workouts were tough, they never really pushed me to the point of wanting to dry heave, but the P90X really allowed me to stretch my self. The first month I went with a standard mix of Creatine* + Protien a couple of times a day and mixed with fruit punch for my recovery drink, but I found that I really needed a lot of electrolyte replacement as well. I was feeling very sick (just completely exhausted) after my workouts and I had to drive over to the corner store to pickup a gatorade/powerade before I would start feeling good again. That really started to change my opinions about the need for a purchasing a recovery drink that focused on post workout recovery.

I purchased the P90X Results and Recovery formula during my second month of the P90X workouts and when I got exhausted it really made a huge difference in the 20 minutes directly after the workout. It already has the Creatine, Protien, and electrolytes all ready to go for the second your done.

Now for the important questions... Was it worth buying? It depends. If you are just doing the workouts and getting slightly winded but not really pushing yourself to an extreme state of fatigue, you can get away without using a recovery drink.

Just as a preface to my review: The other reviews I've read here are all very positive, so I wanted to offer this bit of more negative information. So, I am seven weeks into P90X. The videos recommend this supplement after every workout. First, I do think there are nutritional benefits to using this recovery drink; however, I think they are overstated and not necessarily tied to this specific product. If you compare the protein and electrolyte content of the P90X Recovery drink to chocolate milk, you can see that they are pretty similar. Now, I'm not saying you should just chug chocolate milk after cardio or plyometrics, but it is one example of a much cheaper comparative product. Aside from the expensive cost ($60 for one month) of the P90X Recovery drink, I would also like to note that when I use the drink, I routinely suffer from an upset stomach (read: "killer diarrhea"). While this could just be me, I have spoken to other P90X participants who have similar digestive complaints. Aside from those two big drawbacks (it's over-priced and induces diarrhea), I do believe there are definite benefits to using this or other similar products. Also, it really does taste pretty good--like orange sherbet, and is a nice healthy treat after a hard workout.

I tried this because I am doing P90X and wanted to do what was best for my body. Well, it does taste pretty good but after a little research, I can get the same results out of chocolate milk. It's been 83 days and I have gone from 210 lbs to 172 lbs and look better than I did 20 years ago and I did it mostly without this product.

Yeah, it's expensive. It hurt a bit to pay for this but I think it's worth it. Costs knocks off a star.

Taste :: as many people have stated all over the net, this drink tastes great. It tastes 1000x better when it's cold. So I mix it up and then throw in some ice cubes, let it sit for a minute and chug away.

Recovery :: I take this drink after intense workouts.. especially ones that I know will make me sore. Comparing the days I don't drink this to the days that I do...the next morning I am definitely less sore when I've had the P90x Recovery drink.

The Drink :: There was a lot of research put into this drinks and it has the right ratio of carbs, protein, and sugar. I know it seems ironic that a drink would have so much sugar in it but it's not for the taste...it's for the recovery. After an intense workout like that, your body will soak it right up.. it's not going to your gut. The serving suggests two scoops but I'm trying to make it go a bit longer and just do one scoop. It's a pretty concentrated drink so it still tastes fine and I still feel the difference.

A great plus for anybody who can put down the money. I've never had any other brands and many people have suggested Chocolate milk but it's not the same for me.

Junk. I liked the taste (seem to be a minority there) but it's full of nothing but VitC and calories. Little protein and a bunch of speculative science at best. Buy something that is high in protein, lower in calories, naturally sweetened (Xylitol) and mix it with your favorite juice or just water and it's going to be so much better for you and your recovery. Just because BeachBody says it good and Tony keeps shilling it in every video doesn't mean it's good for you - but it is good for their wallets.

"Drink your water, people! It's good for you."
