Ultragen - 1365g
Ultragen is the most advanced formula of regenerative drink for endurance athletes. The revolutionary formula is designed for the synergistic action of all the necessary nutrients to the right place at the right time. Ultragen has everything you need for optimal recovery in 30 minutes after training, when the body is located in the so-called ''window or opportunity'' or ''anabolic window ''. During this time body allows the exhausted and damaged tissues to adopt more necessary nutrients for fast and better recovery. When the window of opportunity closes, we lose the best opportunity for regeneration, which reduces fatigue, muscle catabolism, tissue damage, stress and negative effects of free radicals.
The result of proper regeneration is high energy levels, better muscle recovery, less fatigue and muscle pain, better sports progress, less chance of over-training and injury. Ultragen is simply the best recovery drink for endurance athletes due to the proven blend which stands on the winner's podium year after year:
"Ultragen is the most recognized recovery drink on the planet - the "must have" for every endurance athlete aiming for the top. Fast carbs and electrolytes supplemented with whey hydrolysate, BCAA and glutamine not only covers complete recovery process but also lowers cortisol and decrease general fatigue."
- High Energy Levels
- Improved Regeneration
- Better Muscle Recovery
- Less Fatigue
- Less Muscle Pain
Mix 1-3 scoops with 200-800ml of water immediately after workout, dosage depends on the length and intensity of your workout.
Best protein for endurance athletes
All proteins are not made equal. Ultragen contains specific protein - protein whey isolate and - hydrolyzed whey protein isolate to satisfy unique needs of endurance athletes. Quick-acting whey protein isolate provides high level of anti-catabolic amino acids. Hydrolyzed whey protein isolate is predigested in small, easy to digest di-, and tri- peptide chains, which can be quickly and absorbed. Compared with competing products, which mainly use cheaper whey protein concentrate are small molecules superior to bigger. With easy and quick digestible proteins we can use protein better and recover faster.
Carbohydrate CatalysisResearch has shown that high glycemic carbohydrates (sugars) directly after workout cause catalysis, resulting in increased adhesion of amino acids, glutamine, vitamins, and minerals to depleted muscle. One scoop of Ultragen contains 30 g of glucose, which has a glycemic index over 100 and absorbs faster than any other sugar. Glucose effectively replenish depleted energy supplies in the muscles (glycogen) and contributes to a better absorption of other ingredients.
Regulation of Cortisol
Cortisol is a stress hormone, that’s rapidly released during an intense workout. An excessive amount of cortisol is reflected in a weakened immune function, increased risk of injury, catabolism - a breakdown of muscle tissue, accumulation of unnecessary fat and reduced levels of testosterone. All these features have a negative impact on the quality of training, athlete's form and general well-being. In extreme cases, they can lead to hormonal imbalances, chronic over-training and are very harmful to health. Therefore Ultragen provides a synergistic mixture of vitamins, minerals, glutamine, BCAA's and other factors, which have been uniquely selected for the regulation of the level of cortisol and its harmful effects.
