Why Recovery Pops are good for you? All Recovery Pops are made from natural and organic ingredients. Each Recovery Pop will contain one or all of the ingredients listed below.
Bananas are incredible versatile, portable, and palatable—but that’s not the only reason you should eat them on the regular. The potassium in one medium banana equals about 400mg, which helps lower high blood pressure and your risk for stroke; they’re loaded with digestible carbs, which helps fuel your body in everyday life and difficult workouts; plus they contain tryptophan, an amino acid that’s known to boost your mood and provide a better night’s sleep.
Coconut water. Recent studies have shown coconut water enhanced with sodium was as good as drinking a commercial sports drink for post-exercise rehydration with better fluid tolerance. Another study reported that coconut water caused less nausea, fullness, and stomach upset and was easier to consume in large amounts during rehydration.
Fruits are not only loaded with carbohydrates, they also contain enzymes to help your body break down nutrients so they can be delivered to your tired muscles. Fruits offer a rainbow of anti-oxidants.
Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Ginger also stimulates circulation.
Green Tea is an exceptional addition to your everyday diet.

Strawberries, blueberries, and the like are some of the best, most nutrient-dense sources of carbohydrates among fruits.

Blueberries have incredibly high antioxidant levels, which help fight free radicals, slow down aging, and reduce your cancer risk; and berries are high in fiber, so they’re naturally filling.
