Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank This product is as advertised
Most people are turned off by the price of this product, which is completely acceptable. However, substituting this product with a gatorade or some other cheap "sports product" is putting nothing in your body except for artificial sugars and empty calories. I have tried several recovery drinks because they are, in my opinion, the most important supplements, without proper nutrition your workout is wasted. I've used P90X, Mike's Mix, and Endurox R4. While the other ones did work pretty well, this formula really blew the others away. I find the taste delicious and refreshing. The affects are unmatched, while taking this particular recovery drink, it allowed me to get the absolute maximum out of every workout. However, if you're not extremely serious about your workouts and nutrition, I wouldn't reccommend this. If you follow a very clean diet and workout 6-10 hours a week, I would definitely use this! If you think you can't afford it, you should cut out you're $3 trip to Dunkin' Donuts every morning, and get more out of your workouts by elimiating caffeine and gluten, and adding perfect post workout nutrition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GetfitMike I keep trying, and am still disappointed
Please bring back the original formula. Not sure why you changed, because it most certainly wasn't inferior in taste or quality. This is new product --- in comparison --- is just taste bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carriagetownthom I was skeptical but I am pleased
I'm always skeptical of supplements, but after reading a bunch of reviews, I decided to try this. The reviews are accurate. It definitely helps you recover (yay creatine!) and actually tastes pretty good. Like creamy Tang, but in a good way. The only downsides are the price and the constant ordering snafus using this clunky, horrific website. Thus far, the customer-company relationship does not impress. Good thing you have a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbranham1 Loved it!
I tried P90x with and without the recovery drink and couldn't believe the difference in my reduction of soreness and increased energy level. It tastes EXACTLY like orange dreamsicle which is amazing! The only con here is the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveIsCake The Best Recovery Supplement Ever
I love this formula. I can do Insanity, Run and Weight Train in one day, drink the formula and the next day I'm not sore. This stuff is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greenidgurl Awesome! Glad I bought it!
I am in to my second week of the program and using muscles I haven't exercised in a long time. I read MANY reviews of this product and decided to buy it. I have had minimal soreness. And I am sure I wouldn't be able to move had I not drank this. And the taste? I love orange creamsicle and that's what it tastes like. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Machine Bad at first, but made some changes!
I would have originally given it one star. I tried it with water as directed, hated the taste/after taste, called Beachbody and canceled my subscription, but did not return it the bottle. Then I decided to experiment with it and found something that made it much better. I put eight (8) ice cubes (smaller ones from my fridge’s ice maker) in the blender, added milk to bring the total level up to two (2) cups (including the ice), blended the milk/ice, then add the two (2) scoops of recovery powder and blended again. This combo worked great and tastes so much better than the version using water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kbudly I work out just so I can take this after I'm done
This is my first tub of the "NEW" formula, past reviews scared me off as they talked about how the new formula tasted bad. I personally like it just as much as the old formula. I love the taste and it really helps me reduce muscle soreness after P90X or insanity workouts. I feel the benifits out weigh the cost. It tastes better cold than with tap water for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HerMan I just might become addicted to this stuff.
I completed my first P90X workout yesterday. Needless to say, it was extremely humbling, but I did my best. Since this nearly 40-year-old body needs all the help it can get, I had to try this formula immediately after my workout. Using tap water was a mistake because it wasn't cold enough; however, after adding some ice, I loved it. I love the smoothness and the dreamsicle favor is what is going to keep me coming back. As for results, any other time I've tried an intense workout for the first time, it takes me a couple of days to feel normal again. Don't get me wrong; I assure you I was sore as can be, but the fact that I just completed the second workout despite yesterday's excruciating workout says it all for me. In the past, I wouldn't have been able to move today. Today, I couldn't wait to finish my routine just so I could have more of this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ready4Success Great stuff put into a easy to mix formula!
I'm 19, female, trying to lose weight (succeeding at it just in case),in college, and simply stuck around a thousand ways to make bad choices everyday and this formula is definitely helping me to go back to my workouts EVERYDAY, just because I feel replenished and energized. I had not tasted the old formula but honestly I was a bit skeptical about this "orange flavor" and when I opened the jar and smelled it, got scared, but when you mix it the story is WAY WAY different. I drink this after each insanity workout and it just makes me feel satisfied (tip for those who feel like ripping the fridge apart after doing their routines). Don't be scared to try it, at least once, to see what are your results because mine right now are just great, and at some point I had doubts too, so don't deny a possibility for a better you.
