New Hope for Restoring Energy
Recovery Factors® is a unique porcine serum derived polypeptide complex originally developed as a unique nutritional support supplement. It was clinically found to be safe and effective, however as people began taking it, something fascinating happened.
Dramatic improvements were seen in fatigue, post exertion malaise, brain fog and "fatigue and soreness after over-exertion." Through these observations it was determined that studies were needed to further evaluate its efficacy. It contains a unique naturally derived porcine protein concentrate It has been very well tolerated, despite people with these issues frequently having sensitive stomachs.
Safety and Purity
This supplement has been used in thousands of people for well over a decade with no significant side effects being observed.
The product is derived entirely as an extract from porcine blood components (i.e., from pigs). These are unique animals, raised humanely and in a very clean and healthy environment,in order to be used for use in human heart valve replacement surgery. It’s predominantly a purified serum polypeptide mix.
Why It Works
The simple answer is we just don’t know. What we do know is that it helps a vast array of people with diverse issues, suggesting more foundational levels of support are being provided within the body.
We do have some theories about mechanisms of actions, currently in research. Our suspicion is that it helps to support immune function. But as scientists, we have learned to first see what is, and then work to understand why.
Peptides can be more readily absorbed and more bio-available than amino acids (the usual building blocks of proteins). Protein is a general term given to everything made from amino acids and polypeptide structures, but it is very different from source to source. By way of analogy, amino acids are like random words. This unique mix is like a book written from these words. How they are combined makes all the difference in their actions.
The porcine immune system is in many ways very similar to humans, which is why guinea pigs are usually used in research. But their very robust immune system is what allows them to wallow in mud without getting sick.
Different proteins can break your body down, while others help to build it up. This can occur in countless different ways. The decades of experience using it for individuals not getting enough nutrition has shown that this protein uniquely helps support the body’s needs.
Meanwhile, a second small study we did showed that it supported several markers of protective immunity.
As Carl Sagan says, "The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together."
The Bottom Line
What was the main response received from those in the study? Panicked emails asking if we could be sure it would be available for them after the study!
Some people saw the benefits with their first bottle (a one-month supply). I strongly recommend initially following the directions under Dosing, including the short-term dietary recommendations.
This unique mix has been used for over a decade. There are numerous ways that Recovery Factors may be working to help you. We are currently doing more research to study these further. But in the interim, as we continue our investigations, the research is showing Recovery Factors to be helpful. Helping people feel good and recover their vitality!
