Optimizing recovery is essential to getting results from your workouts.
Without sufficient recovery, you won’t be able to train as hard or as frequently as you can, which delays (or flat out stalls) your path to progress during your transformation challenge.
Proper nutrition, quality sleep, and stress management all play important roles in the recovery process, but certain supplements have been shown to enhance the recovery process.
And, with better recovery comes:
● Less soreness
● Improved performance
● Better mood
● More frequent training
The end result of these effects is greater results, no matter if your goal is to build muscle, lose fat, be a better athlete, or improve overall health & fitness.
Given the importance that recovery plays in achieving your fitness and physique goals, we brought together the most well-studied ingredients in Pure Rebuild.
What’s in Pure Rebuild and what makes it the best post-workout recovery supplement on the market?

● Increase muscle fullness & cell volumization
What’s in Pure Rebuild?
Creatine Monohydrate (5,000mg)
If there was one supplement you could use (and only one supplement) to improve performance and recovery, it would be creatine monohydrate.
Simply put, it is the single most well-researched, consistently proven effective supplement in the history of sports nutrition.
It’s been studied in individuals both young and old, has a high safety profile, and offers a range of appealing benefits.
Traditionally, creatine has been thought of as something that only bodybuilders and gym bros should use for trying to gain muscle.
While creatine certainly supports muscle gain, that only begins to scratch the surface of what this nutrient can do.
In addition to lean mass gains, creatine supplementation has also been shown to:
● Improve ATP (energy) production
● Boost strength & power output
● Enhance strength-endurance
● Increase anaerobic performance
● Amplify force output
● Boost work capacity
● Improve glycogen resynthesis
● Enhance recovery
● Offer neuroprotective benefits
● Aid cognitive function
Pure Rebuild supplies a full 5,000mg of creatine monohydrate in every serving.
Glutamine is an amino acid used to build proteins in the body. In fact, glutamine is the most abundant and versatile amino acid in the body with ~80% of bodily glutamine found in the skeletal muscle.
Not only does it support protein synthesis, but glutamine is also involved in:
● Immune function
● Glycogen replenishment
● Antioxidant and cytoprotective effects
● Liver function
● Antioxidant and cytoprotective effects
● Tissue repair
Given the fact that glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, you might be wondering why would you want to supplement with it?
Well, circumstances of extreme stress (prolonged intense exercise, illness, injury, etc.) ramp up the body’s glutamine usage, and at a certain point the body’s ability to produce glutamine on its own cannot meet demand.
Supplementing with glutamine is an effective way to provide the muscles, gut, and immune system with this vital substrate it needs to perform and recover optimally.
Betaine Anhydrous (2,500mg)
Provides performance and recovery benefits, it first and foremost serves as an osmolyte, which is a fancy term used for ingredients that help regulate cell volume and aid hydration.
Betaine also serves as an important methyl donor as it converts homocysteine to methionine -- one of the amino acids the body uses to produce creatine.
Essentially, this means that betaine can support greater performance and recovery via two mechanisms: improved energy production and better hydration.
Human studies have found that supplementation with 2.5 grams of betaine per day may increase:
● Muscle protein synthesis
● Force production
● Power output
● Lean mass gains
● Muscular endurance
Some research also suggests that betaine supplementation may enhance body composition and reduce fat mass!
Essential Amino Acids (EAAs)
Amino acids are the building blocks the body uses to repair damaged muscle tissue and support new muscle growth. Failing to consume enough amino acids (protein) each day severely limits your ability to recover optimally, which means you won’t be able to train as hard or as frequently as you want to get results.
The body can generate some amino acids on its own, but there are nine specific amino acids that it cannot create on its own. These nine amino acids are called essential amino acids (EAAs). Within the family of essential amino acids are the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).
You’ve probably heard of BCAAs and the importance they serve is supporting recovery and muscle growth. This is because the BCAAs (primarily leucine) stimulate mTOR --the biological pathway that drives protein synthesis and ultimately muscle recovery, repair and growth.
Now, here’s an important caveat concerning BCAA supplements. They supply the “ignition switch” to start protein synthesis, but they don’t supply all of the building blocks the body needs to sustain protein synthesis.
This is why you want to choose EAA supplements over BCAA supplements.
For these reasons, we’ve also included a full spectrum of essential amino acids in every serving of Pure Rebuild.
The final component of effective recovery is hydration.
Far too often hydration is overlooked, or at the very least oversimplified.
You’ve probably heard that you need to consume enough water each day to be hydrated, but drinking water isn’t the only thing you need to be properly hydrated.
You also need key minerals and electrolytes, since these are lost through sweat during exercise just like water is.
Loss of too much water and/or electrolytes can accelerate the onset of fatigue, impair performance, and increase the likelihood of cramping/injury.
As such, it’s vital that you replenish electrolytes and fluids during and after exercise as part of the recovery process.
Electrolytes not only help regulate fluid balance inside and outside of the cells, but they also are involved in sending signals between different parts of the body and muscle contraction and relaxation.
Pure Rebuild includes a full complement of essential electrolytes to support hydration, cell volumization, and recovery.
