Endurox R4 is the only recovery drink with the 4:1 carb to protein ratio, and is proven to reduce muscle damage and increase both muscle function and endurance in a subsequent workout. The patented Endurox R4 formula includes electrolytes, high glycemic carbohydrates and both whey and soy protein protein in a 4:1 ratio (Optimal Recovery Ratio), arginine, antioxidant vitamins E and C, glutamine and branched chain amino acids.
The important discovery that led to the development of Endurox R4 was the identification of the recovery window, the 45-minute interval following exercise. During this time, cellular processes involved in replenishing and rebuilding the muscle cells are activated. When the right combination of nutrients is provided during this critical time interval there is an enormous enhancement in muscle recovery. With Endurox R4 you recover faster, recover better and come back stronger.
Over 15 peer-reviewed studies show that compared to a conventional recovery drink, Endurox R4:
Increases glycogen replenishment by 200%
Decreases muscle damage by 50%
Increases protein synthesis by 400%
Extends endurance by 55% in a subsequent workout.
Endurox R4 is a total nutritional approach to muscle performance and recovery because it is specifically designed to:
Restore electrolytes and water
Replenish glycogen stores rapidly
Reduce muscle and oxidative stress
Rebuild muscle protein
Mix 2 scoops with 12 oz. of cold water. Take immediately after exercise.
