Maximum performance in the field requires agility, speed, focus and fitness. If your muscles are low on glycogen, you will not be able to perform at your peak. You need maximum glycogen stores in your muscles and liver at the start of the day to provide the reserves that you will be calling on for hours on end.
Using PureSport Workout before and during training will help minimize muscle breakdown and allow you to perform with speed and agility for the entire session, and recover faster. Unlike other sports drinks, which rely on carbohydrates alone, you will not suffer the sugar “rush and crash”.
The protein in PureSport Workout is absorbed quickly by your body but released slowly. In the meantime, the three carbohydrates provide instant energy and the electrolytes ensure your nervous system continues to work at maximum efficiency. These electrolytes, including magnesium, will also help to reduce muscle cramping.
PureSport Pre-Workout / Workout contains all natural ingredients and is approved for use by the NCAA: protein, carbohydrate, electrolytes, and Vitamin C.
PureSport contains half the carbohydrates as leading sports drinks and 60% of the calories. Despite the lower carbohydrate level, PureSport is more effective in improving exercise performance.
Because PureSport contains protein (whey isolate), it is able to reduce muscle damage and soreness, during exercise.
PureSport rehydrates faster than leading sports drinks due to its protein content and better electrolyte content and profile.
PureSport contains magnesium, which helps to prevent muscle cramps
The combination of carbohydrates used (glucose, fructose and maltodextrin) in PureSport allow for a faster uptake and more efficient use. This spares muscle glycogen and extends the point of fatigue.
In head to head tests against other sports drinks, PureSport was found to be superior.
Most importantly, PureSport Recovery is designed to enhance training adaptation. In other words, increase the training response that the athlete is trying to obtain. PureSport Recovery has similar ingredients as PureSport Workout, but in different concentrations and ratios. Like PureSport Workout, PreSport Recovery is made from all natural ingredients and approved by the NCAA.
PureSport Recovery has sufficient carbohydrates to rapidly restore muscle glycogen stores. Muscle glycogen is required for perform high intensity exercise.
The protein in PureSport Recovery is of the highest quality and when combined with carbohydrates, increases the efficiency of carbohydrate being converted into muscle glycogen. It works additively to increase protein synthesis and training adaptation and reduces muscle breakdown and soreness.
The magnesium in PuresSport Recovery is essential for many metabolic reactions. It reduces muscle cramping and activates Vitamin D for bone calcium absorption.
Vitamin C as an antioxidant also works in cooperation with Vitamin E to prevent tissue damage.
The presence of readily available protein stimulates the release of the hormone glucagon and allows the body to more easily make use of fatty acids as an energy source, sparing glycogen. Whey protein isolate is recognized worldwide as one of the highest protein sources available to provide the correct amino acid profile to maximize human protein synthesis for tissue repair and training adaptation.
PureSport Workout and Recovery contain three different types of carbohydrates because the human body has three different carbohydrate transporters from the gut to the blood supply. This has the potential of tripling the rate of carbohydrate uptake.
Multiple studies have found blood and plasma levels of Vitamin C to be less in people who exercise regularly. PureSport Workout contains 110% RDA and PureSport Recovery 520% RDA to address these deficiencies (based on a 2000 calorie diet). Ref. Keith, R.E. Ascorbic Acid. In: Sports Nutrition Vitamins and Trace Minerals. Edited by Ira Wolinsky and Judy A. Driskell. New York: CRC Press, 1997, p. 29-45119-131.
Magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve cellular metabolism in those doing vigorous exercise. Magnesium also plays an important role in protein synthesis and the creation of creatine phosphate, a high energy fuel source stored in skeletal muscle and essential for high intensity exercise. It has also been linked to the prevention of muscle cramps and spasms.
Other studies show magnesium is very important in cardiac function. PureSport Workout contains 35% and PureSport Recovery 70% RDA (based on a 2000 calorie diet) Ref. S. Golf, et al., Is magnesium a limiting factor in competitive exercise? A summary of relevant scientific data. In Magnesium (London: John Libbey & Company, 1993), pp. 209-220.
As well as magnesium sulphate, listed above, PureSport Workout and Recovery also contain the essential electrolytes potassium phosphate, sodium and chloride, which are lost through heavy sweating. These electrolytes are essential for the human nervous system to function correctly, for muscle activity and alertness.
