Post-Workout Nutrition Doesn’t Have to Be Inconvenient or Inefﬁcient
While the general public has always believed breakfast to be the most important meal of the day, those of us who take sports nutrition seriously tend to put our post-workout meal at the top of the priority list. You need to replenish glycogen stores for better recovery and optimal performance. Solid food meals take too long to digest and simply aren’t as convenient as post-workout supplemental nutrition sources.
There’s no shortage of choices for simple protein powders, but most don’t fulﬁll the need for quality post-workout carbohydrates that can shuttle the amino acids and other nutrients into the hungry muscle cells. Meal replacement powders are made with slower digesting ingredients, including small amounts of dietary fat, so they tend to slow the digestion process even further, making them suboptimal for post-workout nutrition. You want things to happen fast after a hard workout to take full advantage of all your efforts.
Use the Right Glygogen Source to Shuttle Nutrients Fast
Dextrose and maltodextrin have been popular carbohydrate for post-workout nutrition, but amylopectin from waxy potato starch is the superior choice, as it passes through the stomach and into the intestines much faster, therefore speeding up your recovery process.
That’s why ELEMENT was formulated with premium-quality high molecular weight amylopectin potato starch. It’s not only incredibly effecient and effective, it’s also ﬂavorless and extremely easy to mix, so it will blend well with your protein poweders, BCAA blends, cell volumizers, and creatine powders.
ELEMENT moves through your digestive system quickly, allowing it to ﬁll glycogen stores and transport key post-workout nutrients into the muscle cells immediately.
