Everything you need to know about REPAIR’s main ingredients: What they are, what they do, and why they work.
BCAAs: Branch-chain amino acids, or BCAAs for short, are the three essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own and therefore must be consumed through the foods we eat or the supplements, like REPAIR, that we take. BCAAs help to rebuild and strengthen muscles, as amino acids are considered to be the “building blocks of protein.”
Vitamins C, D, E, K: These antioxidant vitamins play an important role in promoting muscle recovery because they mitigate the oxidative damage and inflammation that free radicals cause after a workout.
Calcium: Most of us know that calcium is an essential mineral required for bone health, but it also helps with muscle movement and cardiovascular function.
Phosphorus: This mineral is the second most abundant mineral in the body after calcium, and is required for vital bodily functions like filtering waste and repairing tissue and cells.
Sodium: We lose a lot of sodium through our sweat when working out, so it’s important to replenish this mineral as it regulates the proper balance of water and minerals as well as muscle contractions.
Potassium: This electrolyte is known to help with muscle cramping — especially during long workouts — because it helps regulate blood pressure and water retention.
Coconut Water Powder: This ingredient is great for rehydrating after a workout as it contains electrolytes like magnesium and potassium that help with fluid balance, muscle contractions, and more.
