Best Recovery drink/pill?
I just finished up my tub of anabolic OD (yeah yeah..noob..), which usually gets me all sleepy and my body relaxed after a workout.
What's a better product? Because I can honestly feel the damn difference without a recovery product. I'm more sore after, etc. What would you guys suggest?
BTW To Admin, your advertising works, but the Link is dead (of the product above - Bulletproof.)

dude, drink xtend during a workout and you'll be a lot less sore. your bodie craves protein during a workout, but drinking a whey shake will only make your stomach cramp. Xtend is bcaa and citruline malate. Bcaa's are predigested proteins that can only come from your diet meaning, your body cannot convert other proteins into. An intraworkout shake, in my opinion is more important than an afterworkout shake.If you have money left over buy size on, expensive but worth it, tastes amazing, xtend tastes pretty good too.

BCAAs during workout (Purple wraath, xtend)
Adequate nutriton after workout (golden finish, or protein/carbs)

Purple Wraath imo is a much more complete product than Xtend. I used Xtend for a long time and have gotten much better results with purple wraath.
You can also look into sleep supplements like Somnidren GH and ZMK for better recovery.

perhaps, but i hate the taste of purple wrath. why would you need eaa's during a workout(rhetorical) bcaa's are more important. Also beta alanine is something that needs to be taken everyday

as far as recovery drinks I like to either mix 1 scoop Scivation primal eaa w/ 60g wms (kwik karb)
half servings (2 scoops) Universal real gains blended with a banana.
If you have the money then you can go with Universal Torrent, which I also liked, but the options I laid out above are slightly more cost effective.

Recovery is paramount in my program, and I've had some great success with Golden Finish, a product mentioned earlier. I "stack" it with a peach post-workout, for a rough 2-1 CHO/P ratio. I'm about half way into my second bottle, and I just ordered a third.
Another route to consider would be that of sweet potatoes. Few foods will put you into a state of recovery faster. Raisins ironically have a slight edge in this category, but the starches in the sweet potato are largely beneficial to recovery. Combine it with protein, and you're good to go in my book.
Another notable mention is a of a product I picked up a while ago.. Nubound(dot com). NuBound, a nucleotide supplement, has helped me bounce back day after day. I've posted a few things about it here, but its not exactly applicable towards bodybuilding (hypertrophy). If you're an athlete, check it out - widely used among endurance athletes and promotes a quick recovery along with immune boosting properties.
