All Natural Accelerade Sports Drink contains the 4:1 carb to protein ratio, which helps athletes perform better and recover faster. It is proven to extend endurance, enhance rehydration, and speed recovery. Accelerade still contains its patented ratio, but now includes both whey and soy protein which enhances the overall effectiveness of our protein-powered sports drink. Accelerade also provides electrolyte minerals for healthy muscle formation.
Want to know a little secret?
Many top athletes will secretly fill their bottles with Accelerade—even if they’re sponsored by another company. It’s true. Professional athletes must perform to put food on the table. And, if it works for them, it will really work for you. How well, you ask? Why waste money on glorified sugar water.
In a landmark study, researchers showed that compared to a conventional sports drink, Accelerade:
Increased endurance by 29%
Decreased muscle damage by 83%
Increase muscle recovery 40% faster
40% improvement in endurance in a subsequent workout
In another study, researchers showed Accelerade actually increased rehydration by 40% better rehydration than water and 29% compared to a conventional sports drink. The reason being is Accelerade, with its combination of three rapid-acting carbohydrates plus protein, activates multiple sodium transport systems.
Recently, much attention has been devoted to the role the brain plays in fatigue. It is now well accepted that during exercise fatigue signals emanating in the brain can reduce endurance. The high levels of branched-chain amino acids in Accelerade can inhibit the release of brain fatigue signals. In fact, research has shown that athletes consuming Accelerade had a lower level of perceived exertion and, at the same level of exercise intensity, did not experience as much strain. In other words, athletes were able to work harder, easier.
