Recovera® Prickly Pear Cactus extract (Opuntia ficus-indica), is a non-GMO water-soluble powder backed by multiple compelling published studies making it ideal for Sports Nutrition and recovery formulations.
Prickly Pear cactus has long been considered to be a superfood. Extracted in Germany from plants cultivated in Africa and supported by a Type I and Type III collagen matrix, Recovera® is the premier Prickly Pear extract available in the marketplace.
Human clinical trials at a dosage level of 1,000mg have shown that Recovera® may modulate the insulin response and stimulate nutrient uptake in cells which may help muscles regain energy in the form of blood sugar after exercise. The compelling studies have also shown that Recovera® may boost glycogen resynthesis and reestablish the muscle’s ability to turn carbohydrates into energy during intervals of workouts.
Recovera® should be a “go to” ingredient in the R&D arsenal of anyone formulating products under the sports nutrition, weight loss, metabolic syndrome or recovery umbrella.
