What’s in Recharge 2:1™ recovery formula?
Rapid Release Carbohydrate Blend- Recharge 2:1™ recovery formula provides 50g of rapid release carbohydrates, from three premium sources. We have included 23.7% waxy maize starch, 23.7% maltodextrin and 10% dextrose, which work synergistically to quickly replenish muscle glycogen stores, whilst driving the other essential nutrients to the working muscles. Recent studies have shown that High GI carbs such as waxy maize starch, maltodextrin and dextrose taken post workout with carbohydrates improves recovery rates and protein synthesis compared to protein alone.
Whey Protein Isolate- Recharge 2:1™ recovery formula delivers 25g of protein from only premium 90% whey protein isolate. This provides a fast release of vital amino acids to kick start the recovery process post-workout. Unlike competitor products which use inferior protein sources, all of the protein in this formula is from premium whey protein isolate.
Amino Acids- Each 90g serving of Recharge 2:1™ recovery formula provides 5g of branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) in a 2:1:1 ratio. BCAAs and in particular leucine have been linked to increase protein synthesis and recovery. Furthermore we have included 5g of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant amino acids in the working muscles. Glutamic acid further increases recovery and helps to replenish glycogen stores.
Vitamin C- Free radicals produced during intense exercise can cause cell damage, delay recovery and prevent training adaptations. We have also included 1000mg of Vitamin C which acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect cells and reduce free radical activity post-exercise.
Electrolytes- During long periods of intense exercise electrolytes are lost through sweating, and it is essential they are replaced. That’s why Recharge 2:1™ provides 800mg of electrolyte salts to help rehydrate and replenish the body's stores post workout.
DigeZyme®- Finally we have included 50mg of DigeZyme® digestive enzymes to help speed digestion and uptake of the vital nutrients in this comprehensive formula.
What's included in your recovery formula?
Recharge 2:1™ contains a mixture of carbs, protein, amino acids, vitamins, electrolytes and digestive enzymes. Unlike competitor products which use proprietary blends to hide the fact they are using low levels of premium ingredients, GoNutrition™ is the first sports nutrition company to fully declare levels of all active ingredients in its formulas, including their percentage inclusions. You can get the full breakdown on the Nutritional Info tab.
How should I use Recharge 2:1™?
We recommend taking one serving of Recharge 2:1™ straight after your workout. It is import to consume it in the post workout nutrient window, which lasts up to approximately 60 minutes. Add 90g of powder to a GN™ Blender Bottle (that's about two large heaped scoops) and add 350-450ml of water or milk, then shake and drink.
In what flavours is it available?
Recharge 2:1™ currently comes in two flavours: Chocolate Smooth and Sweet Strawberry. You can make the flavours stronger or weaker by adjusting the amount of water or milk you add to the powder when preparing your shake.
