After a hard training or race day, your body is under stress: glycogen stores are depleted, cortisol levels are high and essential vitamins and minerals are drained from your system. Focusing on proper post-workout nutrition can help combat these effects and maximize recovery so you can be ready to go for your next day of training or racing. Getting in protein, carbohydrates, and electrolytes within 30-60 minutes after a hard session is key for speeding up recovery. Why? Immediately after exercise hormone levels are at the perfect concentration and you have an increase in blood flow, creating the perfect storm for optimal nutrient absorption. That’s where First Endurance Ultragen comes in!
The Ultragen mix is designed to deliver the right nutrients to the right place at the right time to help you recover much faster and give you an edge over the competition. It includes:
This recovery drink mix combines essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the perfect concentrations to enhance absorption and utilization and start the recovery process quickly.
