After a hard training or race day, your body is under stress: glycogen stores are depleted, cortisol levels are high and essential vitamins and minerals are drained from your system. It is these times when the critical thirty-minute glycogen window, or “window of opportunity” immediately following exercise is important. Why? Immediately after exercise insulin sensitivity is at its highest and exhausted muscles are basically waiting to be flooded with nutrients. The Ultragen mix is designed to deliver the right nutrients to the right place at the right time (during the window of opportunity) to help you recover really fast and give you an edge over the competition.
Ultragen doesn’t just include recovery nutrients and hope your body absorbs them. Ultragen uses sugar and protein combined with a precise balance of nutrients that the body allows to enter the cell. This synergy maximizes recovery without causing any distress to the body. Ultragen comes in three flavors, we’re partial to the cappuccino flavor, because there is nothing like a cappuccino after a long hard training day, and if it can help you recover and bounce back, even better.

Want to maximize recovery after a hard session? So do we! That is why we love mixing two scoops with 12 ounces of water and consume immediately after our workout.
