AR-15 by NVIE Nutrition
AR-15 is the ultimate weapon in an athlete's gym bag looking to maximize their gains. AR-15 was designed to amplify the most important phase of the athlete’s training program: "The Post-Workout Phase" - known to athletes as the "Anabolic Window". AR-15 brings you 20g of protein for optimal muscle protein synthesis, 30g carbs for restoring depleted glycogen levels, 5g BCAAs for preventing muscle breakdown, 5g EAAs paired with Betaine to limit cortisol release and minimize catabolism, Creatine MagnaPower® to build and maintain muscles, 5g Glutamine for resynthesizing carbs and speeding recovery, Antioxidants to destroy free radicals, and Electrolytes to optimize cell hydration. Don't leave your post-workout recovery to chance - Make sure AR-15 is in your supplement arsenal.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND NVIE AR-15
20g Protein - A 2014 study confirmed the optimal dose of 20g most effectively stimulated muscle protein synthesis—the process that helps promote the muscle repair and growth after exercise.
30g Carbohydrates - The evaporated cane juice in AR-15 triggers the release of an anabolic hormone restoring depleted glycogen levels (increasing energy) and acts as an absorption shuttle for multiple micronutrients present to support full body recovery.
5g BCAA - BCAAs are great because they're almost instantaneously digested and sent into your bloodstream. Taking a BCAA supplement after you train is important because BCAAs can help prevent muscle breakdown. Replacing lost BCAAs post-workout helps keep your body anabolic, which is important whether you're slimming or bulking.
5g EAA - Pairing EAAs with carbs can help you limit cortisol release and minimize catabolism allowing you to recover and add muscle more quickly. Studies show the synergistic effect of EAAs and carb ingestion maximizes the anabolic response of resistance training by limiting the post-exercise rise in protein degradation and inhibiting post-training cortisol release.
5g Glutamine - is critical for resynthesizing carbohydrates after your workout session. Immediately following weight lifting, the muscles will be depleted of their glycogen reserves, which is why taking in that post-workout shake as soon as possible is so incredibly important. The faster you can replenish those stores, the faster you will recover from that workout, which means you'll be that much more prepared when you go into the gym for your next workout session. The Glutamine in AR-15 can actually speed up the recovery process that takes place, which will not only make you feel better immediately following a workout but will increase your ability to build more muscle tissue.
Electrolytes - Electrolytes are essential to physical activity because they regulate bodily fluids. Optimize cell hydration and muscular contractile function after brutal training conditions by employing hypercritical and vital electrolytes.
Antioxidants - Antioxidants form a front line defense against cell damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals -- harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cell death. Free radicals are believed to contribute to aging, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.
RAPID RECOVERY MATRIX
AR-15 BCAA MATRIXL-Leucine - L-Leucine is often called "The Anabolic Trigger" because it stimulates protein synthesis and ignites anabolic reactions within the body, accelerating the process of muscle growth and repair.
AR-15 EAA MATRIXLysine - promotes the formation of both collagen and muscle protein, and speeds recovery.
ANTIOXIDANT MATRIXAscorbic Acid - Vitamin C has been shown to have some anti-catabolic effects that involves decreasing exercise induced cortisol.
ELECTROLYTE MATRIXPotassium Glycinate Complex (Albion) - Is crucial in helping to maintain a proper fluid balance in your body. Potassium also plays a role in the storage of carbohydrates to fuel your muscles. In addition, the frequency and degree to which your muscles contract depends heavily on having the right amount of potassium in the body.

I was a fan of Afterglow, a post workout that is now off the market. It tasted great and had many of the same ingredients as AR-15. Rumor has it that Afterglow was determined to not be effective, and I must admit that something that tasted that good, in supplementland, worried me.
Here we have something that is very similar, in consistency, flavor, and makeup. I’d shifted to Aftershock as a post workout and I think that’s been effective, but was pleased to find this product when looking for Replenish (that I think, actually, is the same product), a supplement I’ve alternated with Aftershock.
All to say, I think my best results have been with Aftershock, but I like the flavor of this supplement and I think it is at least nearly effective. I bought 3 containers recently and haven’t used this or Replenish that long before, so I will have a good run to compare it against Aftershock.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, this is a long-winded hope that it works, hence the four stars, except that the four stars also reflect the price, which is nearly double Aftershock. I love the ingredients in AR-15, but I can’t say I have noticed any less soreness running or greater muscle gains in my latest “trial.” I haven’t seen any setbacks, either, though…..and did I mention it tastes good?
Great post recovery powder
I really like the taste of AR-15- Orange Creamsicle. It has all the things in a post workout that i need. The only thing that i dont love is 30g carbs. I know this is awesome for most but for me its a bit too much.
Awesome product, easy to navigate website, super fast shipping! Will buy again
The taste is incredible. This is my motivation. I work out just so I can drink this at the end! The best.
A really good product!!
All in one
I like how this combines many of thr products I combined into one. I feel like this helps with with speeding up recovery, as I'm not as sore afterwards.
