Core Power High Protein Muscle Recovery Drink

Posted Image
Recovery after a hard workout is never easy. You are always pushing your body, mind, and soul to the limit, only to expect it to bounce back immediately, so you can do it again and again. I won’t lie, for me, finding the right mixture of what compression gear to wear after a workout, what stretches to do to eliminate some soreness and tight muscles, and most importantly, how to refuel and replenish the body and muscles.

My search has ended when it comes to recovery drinks!!! I’ve found my go to drink thanks to the people at Core Power (formerly Honey Milk)!!!

Here is a very eloquent description of Core Power from their website:

What is Core Power?

It’s a protein revolution out there, and people everywhere are discovering why protein is an important part of their diets. Protein is critical for everybody, but even more so for active individuals who are searching for what to drink and what to eat after a workout.

The market has responded to this consumer awareness with a number of high-protein recovery shakes, but most of them are made with powders and additives and are therefore chalky, hard to swallow and awful tasting.
At Core Power, we looked at this as an opportunity to give people who are looking for the best source of protein what they really want: natural protein that tastes great.

A delicious post workout recovery drink for your active lifestyle, Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, lowfat, lactose-free milk and real honey. Its optimum protein to carb ratio and nutrient-rich profile make for the perfect last stage of every workout. From endurance sports and bodybuilding to pilates and yoga, Core Power helps you recover faster, build lean muscle and stay at the top of your game. No matter which game you happen to play.

Why Protein?
  • Milk protein contributes to muscle development while the natural carbohydrates of honey provide the energy to rebuild muscle and glycogen stores. Consumption of carbs with protein after a workout optimizes muscle recovery and growth.
  • Made from fresh milk and real honey, one great-tasting, lactose-freeserving of Core Power provides athletes and fitness enthusiasts with 26 grams of high quality fresh milk proteins, consisting of 21 grams of casein proteins and 5 grams of whey proteins. The light versions still pack a heck of a punch, serving up 20 grams of the same high quality fresh milk proteins.
  • The unique nutritional profile of Core Power uses the best proteins and delivers calories that your body can actually use.
  • Milk’s unique ratio of whey and casein proteins builds lean muscle while its vitamins and minerals keep the body healthy.
  • Honey boosts athletic performance and endurance while reducing muscle fatigue.
What’s the Difference?

People ask us all the time what the difference is between Core Power and the competition. We just like to turn the bottles around and ask people to see for themselves: “Don’t leave your workout unfinished. Restore Your Core.”
Core Power™ is a registered trademark licensed by Fair Oaks Farms Brands, Inc., and is a DESIGNER® milk product.

A couple of things really stood out to me when researching the Core Power product, the 1st was “DON’T LEAVE YOUR WORKOUT UNFINISHED. RESTORE YOUR CORE.” This is so true. I’ve found in the past after workouts, no matter what I use to recover and rehydrate, it just wasn’t doing enough for me. I’d still feel “BLAH” with sore/tight muscles and aches and pains that would last for days. After having used Core Power for a few weeks, that “BLAH” feeling has subsided.

The 2nd thing that stood out to me was the non-existence of a chalky taste you get with powders or other products I’ve tried. I didn’t quite believe it, but it is exactly true. There is absolutely no chalky taste at all. What I’ve experienced is the exact same taste of a milk shake you get from an ice cream shop. The taste is unbelievable.

Core Power comes in a variety of flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, Honey, and Strawberry Banana.
I was fortunate enough to be provided with the Vanilla flavor, and it is incredible. It goes down so smooth, and is delicious to the last drop.

Here is what I’ve found in the few weeks of using the product after workouts, and have even found a few other uses for the product.

I have once again started my workouts after a brief hiatus, and I would have expected there to be some normal aches and pains from not having been active for a little while. Yes, those aches and pains are there, but what is great, is after my workouts, I’ve cracked open a Core Power, felt refreshed and replenished, and the following day, I feel absolutely great!! No Joke!! There is very limited aches and pains, and my muscles have felt great and ready to do more. It is a feeling I hadn’t had for a while. Usually, it takes a day or two to recover, but that recovery period has shrunk since introducing Core Power to my recovery routine.

Also, I have found since Core Power is a high protein drink, I’ve used it a few times in the morning as a meal substitute, and it has been able to fill me up just fine, which I find nice with my schedule being so hectic these days. It is a very reliable product for me in that sense.

I am so happy that I’ve been able to work with Core Power, and I am so proud to say that they will be my product of choice when it comes to my recovery from workouts.

I can’t wait to try the Strawberry Banana and Honey Flavored Drinks!

I would like to again thank Core Power for their great service and product, and making me a true believer in it.
