If you are being held back by your recovery supplement then maybe it’s time to let go of your protein overloaded “recovery” powder and try something that is designed to actually help you recover.

The problem with a lot of the protein powders out there is that the market is dominated by supplements that are designed to help you get BIG.  If this is what you are looking to do then maybe this review is not for you.

Maybe you should stick to your recovery supplement that loads you with 200% of your daily protein values and pretty much nothing else.  But if you are an athlete looking to improve PERFORMANCE, not just muscle mass, if you are looking for a product designed to help you actually recover, to provide your muscles with the protein needed to develop as well as restore the energy supplies you burned during your workout then look no further than 18 Series Nutrition’s After Action Recovery Mix (AAR).


What sets this product apart is that it was designed for soldiers in the field.  Soldiers who can’t afford to just pump their bodies with protein and sleep off the workout.  Soldiers who need something that not only builds them back up after a hard effort but allows them to jump right back out and repeat that same effort again, because there life might depend on it.  In doing this 18 series nutrition also created an amazing product for true athletes.

The two major differences between AAR and other protein powders is the addition of carbohydrates and fat.  The actual breakdown is 21g Whey Protein, 50g Carbohydrates (Dextrose), and 11g Fat (MCT).  Dextrose is a fast digesting simple sugar which allows you to replenish your energy stores as quickly as possible.  MCT or Medium Chain Triglycerides are a form of saturated fatty acids that are considered to be largely missing in the standard American diet.
