The nutrient requirement in athletes is highest immediately after intense and prolonged physical activity.
The 30 - 45 minute window after training or events is a crucial time during which the body races to recover as quickly as possible.
The body’s evolutionary instinct to immediately replace muscle glycogen (our first and main source of energy) means that it will use whatever nutrients are available, including amino acids present in muscle tissue, resulting in muscle wastage.
By rapidly supplying carbohydrates to replace glycogen, as well as fast acting protein to replace amino acids, the body recovers quickly, without breaking down existing amino acids.
USN’s Recover Xcell is precisely formulated as a post training recovery drink and/or a comprehensive energy, amino acid and electrolyte replacement drink to use after long periods of intense physical activity such as military training, Iron Man events, marathons etc. as well as shorter, highly intensive activities like sprinting, power-lifting, weight-lifting, rugby etc.
The carbohydrates consist of an ideal ratio of long chain glucose polymers for sustained energy supply, as well as fast acting simple sugars for rapid energy replacement.
Recovermax has been formulated to form an isotonicdrink ( if prepared correctly), which promotes optimal nutrient absorption.
Protein is supplied in the form of premium whey protein isolate, which has the highest bioavailability, absorption rate and retention of all protein sources. Recover Xcell is a light, refreshing, fruit flavoured drink.
