Created for athletes to refuel after demanding activity, GU Recovery Drink Mix packs energy-dense whey protein isolate to promote protein synthesis and reduce muscle-protein breakdown. The carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) help replenish glycogen stores and also play a role in inhibiting exercise-stimulated muscle-protein breakdown. The amino acid arginine (1400mg) is the rate-limiting amino acid in nitric oxide production, which can potentially increase vasodilation and improve oxygen transport. The amino acid glutamine (2800mg) helps promote proper immune function. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in rehydration by maintaining water balance.
ELECTROLYTES Maintain water balance and aid in rehydration. CARBOHYDRATES Replenish glycogen stores and help prevent muscle protein breakdown. AMINO ACIDS Argenine promotes blood flow and Glutamine supports a strong immune system. PROTEIN Helps promote muscle recovery and reduces muscle protein breakdown.
