Recovery 911 Review
What You Should Know
Recovery 911 is a post-workout shake designed to boost recovery time and get you back in the gym faster. Muscle Gauge Nutrition is known for selling some sketchy supplements, like AndroGro X a pro-hormone, but this product is nothing more than protein, creatine, glutamine and amino acids. The product description of the supplement claims the orange shake mix can be taken by men, women and athletes. Creatine causes muscle hydration and water retention. Even at the small dose of 3 grams, eventually muscles would store creatine causing a puffy appearance similar to bodybuilders in the offseason. This is not a weight loss supplement and it should not be taken by anyone without clear information about how the supplement works in the body.

We are still taken aback but the claim that creatine should be taken by everyone. We realize creatine has been studied for various health benefits and it will hydrate muscles, but dieters are looking for a supplement to boost weight loss not cause them to hold on to water weight.
From the athletic perspective, Recovery 911 contains just the right ingredients to aid muscles in recovery after weight training or intense exercise. There is creatine for hydration, glutamine to replenish fuel stores and protein to feed the muscle. There’s not much more a post-workout shake could include.

There are plenty of supplements designed for athletes that Tom and Sue down the street can use for weight loss, but Recovery 911 is not one of those supplements. It does not contain a vitamin profile and it contains creatine. With 230 calories per serving, the dieter is looking for a meal, not a supplement that will inevitably cause them to gain weight over time. Muscle hydration is important to the athlete, but there is no real need for the average dieter to take an athletic supplement like Recovery 911.
Dieters need to focus on three things – energy, metabolism and appetite suppression.
