Driven Nutrition: Optimal Rest & Recovery

  December 6, 2017

At River 2 River, we believe that optimal rest and recovery will help you CRUSH goals in the gym that you never thought possible. Some people believe “THE GRIND NEVER STOPS”, but without adequate and quality sleep, your body can never truly recover or reach it’s true maximum potential. That’s why this week we are going to highlight the product R&R by Driven Nutrition and why we think our members could really benefit from using it!

You can’t crush your WODs if you’re sleep deprived.

According to the latest research, sleep deprivation is a national epidemic. Yes, it’s bad for your immune system, mental state and overall health. But did you know that being sleep-deprived zeroes out many of the gains you’re trying to make with your workout?

Supplementing with R&R by Driven® Nutrition helps you get to sleep faster, sleep more deeply, and more efficiently digest the nutrients you need to build muscle and recover from an intense WOD.

  • Improve time to exhaustion by increasing your mental tolerance for a heavy workout
  • Get better results from the same effort by encouraging growth hormone and testosterone release
  • Recover faster by enhancing your digestion and metabolism of nutrients
  • Get a mental boost allowing you to focus and fight fatigue during your WOD
  • Stay healthier by helping your immune system maintain itself and fight off illness

How Driven® Nutrition’s R&R Works

The health food store is full of natural sleep aids. But only R&R is formulated for the unique needs of endurance athletes, bodybuilders and CrossFitters. R&R’s blend of natural components help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, improve your digestion, and boost hormone levels to promote muscle building, workout recovery, immune system strength and overall health.

Fall asleep faster and sleep deeper with a Sleep Restoration Complex

  • Melatonin is a hormone produced during sleep that helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. (As a bonus, it also has antioxidant,anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and neuroprotective benefits.)
  • Kava Kava extracts have been shown to aid in reducing sleep loss from anxiety.
  • Valerian Root and Magnesium help you fall asleep faster and keep you asleep longer without interruption.

Improve resting metabolic rate

There’s no point in taking vitamins and other supplements if you can’t digest them effectively. R&R’s blend of natural digestive aids helps your body maintain digestion even when you’re asleep, keeping your resting metabolic rate high.

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus, a powerful pro-biotic, helps maintain the health of your digestive system so it can operate at peak efficiency.
  • Natural extracts (Black Cherry, Senna Leaf and Aged Garlic)offer both digestive and recovery support thanks to their antioxidant properties. Tart cherry extract also helps boost your body’s own melatonin production.
  • Enzymes like Bromelain, Pepsin, Lipase, Maltase, Sucrase, and Lactase help break down your food (and supplements) into fats,sugars and proteins to give your digestive system a head start.

Boost muscle-building hormone production

Sleep deprivation reduces your body’s production of vital muscle synthesis hormones including insulin, testosterone and human growth hormone.R&R is designed to do double-duty: it encourages both the quality and quantity of sleep, and the natural plant extracts—several from Ayurvedic traditions—directly encourage your tissues to produce more of these vital hormones.

  • The herbal extracts Cissus Quadrangularis and Coleus Forskohlii (Forskolin) are linked to increases in testosterone output
  • L-Ornithine has been shown to increase output of some human growth hormones, and can also significantly reduce feelings of fatigue during a workout
  • GABA is the “sedative” neurotransmitter that relaxes your brain and body for sleep. It has also been linked to human growth hormone(HGH) output.
