WHAT IS IT?
RESET is a post-exercise recovery drink with natural flavouring, containing multiple transportable carbohydrates (0.8:1 fructose:maltodextrin) together with whey protein isolate and electrolytes. RESET is designed to promote rapid refuelling, which will contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function** muscle protein synthesis and repair*** and rehydration after highly intensive or long lasting physical exercise.
As important as a recovery drink is we know it can also be difficult to stomach after intense exercise that's why we've added no thickeners to RESET, keeping it nice and light, and worked hard on the flavour so it's refreshing and not too sweet.
WHATS IN IT?
RESET contains a high quality whey protein isolate (WPI). It is fast acting, highly bioavailable**** and very low in lactose, meaning maximum growth and repair of muscle tissue (1)*** and minimal digestive distress. The amino acid profile of WPI includes significant levels of essential amino acids including Leucine, a branched chain amino acid involved in muscle protein synthesis (2).
The essential serving of protein is paired with the equally essential unique blend of multiple transportable carbohydrates and electrolytes. RESET has been formulated using the latest considered optimum combination of 0.8:1 Fructose:Maltodextrin to provide you with the ultimate delivery of carbohydrate whilst remaining easy on the stomach (3).
The combination of WPI and Carbohydrates has been shown to increase the rate of muscle glycogen replenishment following strenuous exercise (4, 5, 6).
When consumed with the suggested amount of fluid RESET will set you on the path ro recovery ready for your next event or training session (7, 8, 9).
* Per 64g x 500ml serving
**Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
***Protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass.
***Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass.
**** the bioavailability of Whey Protein Isolate is defined as the amount ingested capable of being absorbed and available for use or storage.
