The secret to endurance training and hitting race day in peak form is making sure you recover properly. The nutrients you consume during your post-exercise recovery period are vital for the rebuilding process. Eload Recovery Formula is a clean formula that contains all the necessary nutrients you need to restore and repair your muscles after your endurance exercise.
Glycogen is the stored form of carbohydrates in the body. For optimal recovery, sports nutritionists recommend consuming 50-100 grams (1.8-3.5 ounces) of carbohydrates within the first 30 minutes following endurance exercise. Eload Recovery Formula provides your body with the carbohydrates it needs to replace the glycogen it lost during your endurance race. A litre of our recovery drink contains 60 grams (2 ounces) of carbohydrate for rapid glycogen repletion in your body.
Protein is an essential building block of the body. Like carbohydrates, there is an optimal window of opportunity during which protein can most effectively be used to rebuild muscles. Within the first 30 minutes after endurance exercise, 5-9 grams (0.18 – 0.32 ounces) of protein should be consumed. Eload Recovery Formula supplies 15 grams (0.5 ounces) of ultra-filtered New Zealand whey protein isolate, which has been shown to be one of the best sources of protein for post-exercise muscle recovery.
Water is the most vital nutrient in the body. Dehydration due to sweating is very common among endurance athletes. Sweat rates vary greatly depending on the intensity of the workout, the temperature of the environment, and the person. During recovery, it’s important to replace fluids and electrolytes that were lost during exercise so you can race your best the next day.
Sodium and potassium, are important for muscle repair and water balance in the body. Eload Recovery Formula contains an optimal sodium concentration and increases fluid absorption in your body.
Maintaining a pH balance in your body will dramatically reduce post-workout fatigue and shorten muscle recovery times. Higher pH in recovery drinks (above 7.0) means the concentration of protein is too high, and thus difficult to digest, especially after intense endurance exercise. If pH is too low (too acidic), this can be hard on your stomach, as the stress on your body has already increased the acidity of your stomach. Eload Recovery Formula has a pH around 5.0, so it is high enough to be stomach friendly and low enough to be easily digestible.
With flavours such as chocolate and orange, Eload Recovery Formula tastes great to encourage you to drink enough to replace the nutrients you lost during your endurance exercise.
When you recover your body with Eload, you can train at optimal performance everyday.
