    Best supplements for recovery?

    I want to start training more per week, but I would like my body to function at 100% the next day rather than being fatigued. Is there a common and less chemically (or the least) supplement for this?

    Believe it or not the renergy sandwich really does work. Takes getting used to though.
    All organic, no supplements needed.

    The only reason it isnt a part of my regular routine is because I cant find almond butter over here.

    A decent read on the subject:
    Ergogenic Aids

    The term ergogenic aid refers to a substance that can increase the capacity for bodily or mental labor, especially by eliminating fatigue symptoms. Nutritional ergogenic aids refer to substances that enhance performance and are either nutrients, metabolic by-products of nutrients, food (plant) extracts, or substances commonly found in foods (e.g., caffeine and creatine) that are provided in amounts more concentrated than commonly found in the natural food supply. The non-nutritional ergogenic aids, including anabolic steroids and their analogues, continue to be used by athletes, but because they are nearly universally banned by sports organizing bodies (NCAA, IOC, USOC, and so on), they are not the focus of this chapter. Instead, this chapter focuses on the legal nutritional ergogenic aids, for which there is an increasing body of scientific information.

    Muscle recovery:

    Protein
    Salt (Sodium Chloride)
    Potassium
    Magnesium
    Calcium

    FYI, lots of water. I recommend adding Emergen-C packets to your water occasionally to prevent hyperhydration. (It takes a lot to get there, but an ounce of prevention...right?)

    Hello!! Have you thought of adding Whey Protein ? I do a lot of strength training and I know that once I added it into my diet a huge difference has been made. It works great if you make a shake with it about 20 minutes after your workout. A few other suggestions would be BCAA and Caffeine Powder. I get all my stuff from PureBulk.com. I know they are having a sale on the Caffeine powder too. The coupon code is CAFF20. You can save 20% off if that is something that interests you! Anyway, I hope some of these might help you!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!

    Hmm, very similar to what I blend up for a smoothie most mornings. I throw in whey protein, sometimes creatine depending on what I did at the gym. I don't eat wheat, so the bread is out.

    You should be able to get almond butter from Amazon. Over here, Sam's Club sells a giant tub of Maranatha almond butter that I use.

    Chemically: BCAA's, Creatine and Beta Alanine.

    Is there in any benefit in cooking the baby spinach?

    I love the stuff raw and thought it would be better not to cook it.
