We strongly believe that as an athlete you are only as strong as your recovery. If you train frequently, a recovery shake can make a noticeable difference. The success of progressive training is determined by the resilience of the athlete. The refilling of electrolytes, moisture, energy and nutrients supports the recovery process and prevents fatigue and muscle pain.
For an optimal recovery it is important that the recovery shake is adapted to your training, so as an athlete you need more nutrients after a training of 4 hours, than after a training of 1 hour. In our recovery we work with 1 scoop per training hour and an upper limit of 4 scoops per training.
But what makes our recovery so special?
- Muscle recovery
Proteins are essential for our muscle recovery. However, this process takes far too long with a normal diet. Proteins are firstdigested in our stomach, then split up in our intestines and then transported through the blood to our muscle (cells). For this reason we have chosen to use di- and tripeptides in our Recovery. These di- and tripeptides do not have to be digested, but end up in the blood immediately. This way your body can immediately do something with these amino acids and your muscles almost immediately get the chance to recover.
- Re-enforce muscle glycogen
During an intensive workout or competition, muscle glycogen is the main source of energy. During prolonged efforts, these fuel reserves become depleted, so they need to be replenished for a better recovery and in preparation for the next performance. A combination of carbohydrates (maltodextrin and dextrose), proteins and natural caffeine (Guarana 15% = 45 mg caffeine) ensures a 66% faster recovery of the muscle glycogen compared to only using carbohydrates and proteins.
- Re-enforce moisture and electrolytes
Sweat consists not only of water, but also of certain minerals. These are also called electrolytes and are essential for the functioning of our body. During sweating you lose up to 20 different electrolytes. Some of them are in such small quantities that you don’t have to worry about them. But there are also substances that you sweat out, that you will have to replenish after the effort.
- Re-establishment of ATP reserves
The muscles are only able to hold a small amount of ATP. The existing stock is therefore quickly consumed when you make a physical effort and needs to be replenished afterwards. Creatine Ethyl Ester is absorbed faster and has a greater absorbency than ordinary creatine. In this way, it ensures that the ATP reserves are replenished as soon as possible.
- An alkalising effect
During physical exercise, for example due to cycling or running, the muscles burn more nutrients than normal. The heart has to pump faster and faster to meet the demand for oxygen. Over time, an insufficient supply of oxygen occurs, as a result of which combustion can hardly take place anymore. During this phase lactic acid is released, because the body burns sugars (glucose) to provide your muscles with energy. These lactic acids must be buffered, which is normally done by extracting minerals from muscles and bones. However, this is not optimal if progressive training is to be provided in the long term. Minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium have been added to our recovery. These are alkaline and help your body to buffer the lactic acid.
- Support of the immune system
After making a heavy effort you are most prone to illnesses. Our recovery boosts your immune system, so that all your training work is not lost due to illness.
- Feeling better
Because of the constant focus during sports you may also feel mentally tired, the addition of omega-3 and omega-6 contributes to the recovery of the brain and cell membrane. This will immediately make you feel a little better.
