It replenishes available nutrient levels in the body, allowing the body to grow, repair and regenerate in an optimal fashion. In a recently completed study submitted for publication. It resulted in 60% of people showing marked improvement, with this group showing an average 69% increase in both energy and overall well-being, 55% improvement in cognitive function, and a host of other benefits.
It is manufactured in Western Europe under the strictest manufacturing quality controls in the world.
We don’t know if the product will affect histamine levels for those with mast cell activation. But we have not seen any significant adverse effects in this population who have taken the study supplement, many of which do have mast cell activation.
This supplement is generally well tolerated. Even in people who don’t seem to tolerate much of anything. Occasionally, there may be a small bit of intestinal upset followed by improvement in digestive function. If there are any side effects, come join us on our group discussion page at Recovery4 Me website, where the leading experts and others using the supplement will be guiding each other.
We have not seen negative interactions but you should consult with your healthcare provider before taking this if you are on blood thinners such as Coumadin. In addition, it is advisable to always consult with your holistic physician with before starting any new supplement.
As an average, 8 tablets per day for the average person who is feeling depleted will be a good long-term average. Another yardstick for daily dosage is roughly one tablet per 7.5 kg to 10 kg (16.5 – 22 pounds) bodyweight for people under stress (including exercise stress and illness) and 1 tablet per 15 kg bodyweight for healthy individuals. This is a “maintenance” dose but there is an initial loading period when the product is being used to boost amino acid pools in the body, peptide production (nearly 300,000 possible types of peptides for nearly all functionality) and used for essential repair. These dosages are not strict, they are guidelines, the result of your dose should be increased energy, focus, clarity, improved mood, increased endurance and an overall feeling of wellbeing. If you are not feeling this, increase your dose, if you are feeling anything adverse, reduce your dosage right down and build up slowly – adverse reactions are generally corrected, but if anything persists, please cease taking immediately and contact [email protected] to discuss.
The first 3 days are to be considered the loading period. It is recommended that one boosts the daily dose by 50% to 100% and spread it out over the course of the day, starting first thing in the morning with at least 4 tablets.
A night-time dose of 2 to 4 tablets is advised for refreshing sleep and overnight recovery. Please start with 2 tablets. A good sleep is characterized as a deep sleep (necessary for body and muscle recovery) but you will also likely experience vivid dreams due to improved REM state (required for increased brain energy during the day).
Normally, improvements will happen within 3-6 days, although increased mental and physical energy will occur within 30 minutes for a healthy person, but this will only occur in a person with a degenerative state after their body changes to a more balanced anabolic state, which may be a few days. For some people in a very severely depleted state, the body does need a change in diet to force it to adapt the polypeptides for rebuilding your body and for the nutrients to do their job.
One has taken a high enough dose when there is excess energy. If you wean yourself off the loading dose and energy disappears, then revert to the loading dose and wait a few more days before weaning yourself to a lower dosage.
There is no real upper limit to the number of tablets you can take a day. So it is okay to adjust the dose to what feels the best to you.
The overwhelming response from people is that they experience deep sleep with vivid dreams, especially when taking Recovery Factors at bedtime. This is indicative of both deep sleep and REM states, which are both required for regeneration of the body and brain (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-happens-in-the-brain-during-sleep1/). In our recent study, the average improvement in sleep in the 60% of people who improved was 53.8%.
There will be similar benefits across the board to consuming the right nutrition for your body. If there are no significant impediments, then your body will use the nutrients in Recovery Factors to potentially replenish nearly 300,000 types of peptides and over 30,000 different protein types in the body. Because of its purity and high quality, nitrogen balance should improve in the body and there will often be increased rate of hair and nail growth along with improved overall condition of the body. Proper nutrition for the body results in lower internal stress on the body, which in turn results in a greater likelihood of the body becoming more anabolic (https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-642-57119-0_32). Anabolism is characterized as growth, repair and regeneration – along with restoration of normal energy levels, normal peptide/enzyme/hormone levels and normal levels of functionality. If this is not achieved, then there is either some sort of physical impediment preventing the body from moving to an anabolic state or the levels of nutrients in the bloodstream are not enough and more needs to be ingested. The dosage should be spread out over the course of the day because there is a mechanism which should be understood – your body is going to use the nutrients for nearly every function in the body, they will be used up and an excess will eventually be oxidized, so the goal is to maintain a stable level in the bloodstream throughout the day.
The body is almost entirely a protein body from the perspective of structure and function. Nearly every structure in the body has varying combinations of the 20 amino acids in Recovery Factors as it’s basis. In the same way, nearly all function in the body has peptides as its basis, comprised of varying combinations of the 20 amino acids in Recovery Factors as well. Recovery Factors provides the nutritional support for the body to improve anabolism which will improve growth, repair and regeneration of these underpinning protein structures, resulting in improved function and overall condition, evident as improved energy, focus, endurance, strength, sleep and overall feeling of wellbeing.
Recovery Factors is very effective at supplying the nutrients needed to regulate the intestinal epithelial cells (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5966675/) and supporting the digestive amino acid pools required for proper digestion and as such one can often see profound differences both in terms of the intestinal behavior and activity. These are likely to be short-term adjustments with a normalization in the long-term, but it does depend on the individual and their diet as to how regular the person is. There is a general move towards being more regular when taking Recovery Factors. After sometimes showing some initial brief worsening of gut symptoms, in our recent study people who improved showed an average 54.6% improvement in digestive symptoms. So if you have an initial gut symptoms, simply spread the dose throughout the day. In a few weeks, your gut will usually be functioning far better than before you began the supplement.
The sleep/waking cycle is determined by circadian rhythms which in turn are managed by the production of melatonin and which is also responsible for the onset of sleep (https://www.psychiatrictimes.com/view/role-melatonin-circadian-rhythm-sleep-wake-cycle). Melatonin is metabolized from serotonin in the pineal gland. Serotonin has the opposite effect to melatonin – being, among other things, responsible for increased alertness. By taking at least 2 tablets at bedtime (2 to 4 tablets is the range people generally take at bedtime), sufficient nutrient levels are available for the metabolism of serotonin levels to melatonin and generally this corrects the issue had by some people of not being able to go to sleep.
I feel nauseous when taking Recovery Factors. Why is that, what can I do? or I get diarrhea when taking it.
This is largely to do with the oxidation of the iron in the product in the duodenum. You can take vitamin C, drink orange juice or have coffee at the same time, or take it with a meal, to avoid this problem. If the problem persists, then start with a smaller dose. Recovery Factors is very effective at supplying the nutrients needed to regulate the intestinal epithelial cells (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5966675/) and supporting the digestive amino acid pools required for proper digestion, so can have a very positive action on the very thing that is causing the intolerance to it in the first place. Bring it down to 1 per day, then increase it by 1 per day, every other day until one gets to a normal dose. Stay on the normal dose for 2 weeks before moving to a loading dose to charge up and energize the body, this will give adequate time for your digestive system to become balanced.
There are many possible reasons why one would get a headache, but these are mostly a reflection of an imbalance in the body. Recovery Factors is highly energizing, because it increases the overall functionality of the body by supplying available nutrients to an otherwise-depleted body. This can result in things such as increased xenobiotic metabolism (also known as “Drug Metabolism”, which involves the act of metabolizing chemical agents in the body by the liver…colloquially referred to as “detox”). Your body has a certain capacity for these necessary functions and if exceeded, they can result in headaches. The solution is to bring the dose of Recovery Factors right down and increase it slowly over time. Bring it down to 1 per day, then increase it by 1 per day, every other day until one gets to a normal dose. Stay on the normal dose for 2 weeks before moving to a loading dose to charge up and energize the body. This will give adequate time for your body to balance itself and perform sufficient levels of detoxification before accelerating the processes in the body.
