Recovery Factors is a unique supplement because of it’s form and structure, and to some degree, it’s contents. It contains all 20 amino acids required by the human body in a peptide form. This means that the amino acids are joined to each other (through a nitrogen bond) in a di-peptide and tri-peptide structure. This is fairly unique in the nutritional world because digestive proteins (meat, fish, eggs, etc, along with protein supplements) are usually in one of three forms:
1. Whole proteins
2. Oligopeptides (large peptides)
3. Free amino acids
Whole proteins and oligopeptides require digestion, which strips the nitrogen from them and breaks them down to amino acids, producing toxic ammonia as a byproduct. The problems associated with this are as follows (among others):
1. The thermic effect of food has determined that the energy overhead to digesting protein will result in 20% to 35% of the amino acids being converted to glucose by the liver.
2. Studies have shown that the digestive kinetics can result in a high proportion of some amino acids being metabolised by the mucosa layer, therefore never being absorbed into the body.
3. The splanchnic (internal organs) amino acid pools can retain up to 50% of the amino acids being absorbed.
4. The nitrogen required for creating functional proteins and peptides in the body is converted to urea through digestion, then to urea and finally discarded through the kidneys and the bladder as urine.
5. Free amino acids are easily oxidised by the body, the intestinal mucosa and even the intestinal flora and is the least efficient growth mechanism of the 3 basic forms of protein by an order of magnitude, peptides being the most efficient.
That is the basis of the fundamental problems with protein digestion and is everything that Recovery Factors is not. Recovery Factors does not get digested in the normal way and is rather largely absorbed through the PEPT1 transport in the duodenum (before even reaching the small intestine). It retains it’s nitrogen bonds and therefore it’s biological/nutritional value and is absorbed directly through the epithelial cells into the bloodstream where it is highly unlikely that it can be oxidised because of the covalent joins, unlike free amino acids which are readily oxidised by the body.
After a dose of Recovery Factors, one ends up with all the required amino acids required by the body in an appropriate structure for anabolism (growth, regeneration, repair). People comment that they experienced the first proper night’s sleep in decades after taking their first dose of Recovery Factors – that’s because the nutrition, which is theoretically available in any other form of food or supplement, finally made it into the bloodstream and is available for anabolic use by the body. They obviously didn’t get the nutrients in from any other source, or the nutrient base could not be effectively used or exist in sufficient quantities for the creation of sufficient levels of the required neurotransmitters for proper function in the body. If the most basic and important function of sleep is not being supplied with sufficient nutrients, then it stands to reason that neither are many (or even all) of the other functional aspects of the body. By the same token, it stands to reason that if one is moves to a high energy state with low pain levels and sleeping well after taking Recovery Factors (from a low energy, high pain, bad sleep position), that one is then getting the required nutrients in sufficient quantities for functionality that is lacking in the body.
The primary aim of Recovery Factors is to supply all of the nutrients for the body, to raise functional levels and balance the body. This could take longer for some or could happen within a few days (which is the majority experience). To understand this better, one must understand that the human body consists of (excluding water) protein and peptide structures almost entirely. The “backup systems” such as the adrenal system, function mainly on fatty acid structure – which is the easiest form of nutrition to digest, so when peptides are in short supply, the body can still operate on fatty acids, to some degree. Our bodies have over 30,000 types of protein and over 293,000 peptides – the proteins representing nearly all structures in our body, including bones, hair, skin, nails, DNA, RNA, connective tissue, muscles, etc. The peptides are the basis of nearly all functionality (enzymes, dynamic immune system, neurotransmitters, signalling proteins, blood proteins, insulin, etc). Recovery Factors forms the nutritional basis for all of those, so theoretically, the body can produce any peptides or any proteins from Recovery Factors. This is why healing and recovery is massively boosted. Recovery time for athletes is the easiest to measure and athletes on Recovery Factors have almost halved their recovery time. The same applies to all form of recovery – one needs the appropriate nutritional levels to recover and that is what Recovery Factors supplies.
