Specially developed for Endurance athletes!
Consuming a combination of carbs and protein-rich foods before and after exercise promotes the rebuilding of muscle proteins and helps your body replenish its glycogen stores quickly – the carbohydrates actually helps the muscles obtain the protein.
- Refills your glycogen reserves (carbohydrates)
- Repairs damaged muscle fibers (protein)
- Easily mixable powder to mix with water
- No sweeteners
The mix of carbohydrate and protein helps you to rebuild damaged muscle fibers, and to replenish glycogen stores in muscle cells after exercise. This enables the body to perform again within 24 hours.
For recovery it is recommended to take simple carbohydrate with high GI just after exercise to replenish muscle glycogen. Maltodextrin, sucrose and dextrose are all “high GI”- carbohydrates which means they are absorbed quickly in the body. Maxim Recovery Powder provides a mixture of simple and complex carbohydrates. This mixture gives a different response in the body; effecting the stomach emptying rate, solubility, sweetness etc. The high content of fast carbohydrates gives an adequate sweetness and texture.
Protein quality refers to the availability of amino acids in the protein while the digestibility refers to how well the protein can be utilized. Different proteins have different amino acid composition. There are also differences in how easily digestible protein (split up into amino acids) in the body, and how easily they can be utilized. Protein quality is crucial when considering the nutritional benefits that protein can provide.
