Consuming a recovery drink that contains the right types of nutrients at the right times following your workouts can make a considerable difference in your exercise results and overall health. Recovery drinks help replenish fluids and energy lost during your workout and prepare you for your next workout. For the first two hours after exercise your liver produces glycogen, the short-term storage form of glucose, at one-and-a-half times the normal rate. This is the best time to have a high-carbohydrate recovery drink. Consuming carbohydrates immediately after exercise also stimulates your pancreas to release insulin, which tells your cells to absorb glucose. During the next four hours glycogen production remains elevated, but gradually slows. Isostar Reload contains 10g of protein per serving which makes it a far superior product to recovery drinks with carbohydrates alone.

The Isostar Reload bar is specially designed to optimise the recovery phase of sportsmen and women and in particular for endurance sports. Its guaranteed protein content (25%) contributes to maintaining and increasing muscle bulk. The carbohydrate content promotes energy recharging with restoration of the body's glycogen reserves and its vitamin and mineral content compensates for losses occurring through perspiration during exercise: - vitamins B1, PP and B6 contribute to the conversion of food into energy.- vitamins C, E and B2 are involved in the antioxidant protection of cellular components.- vitamin C can contribute to reducing fatigue in the event of a deficiency.- calcium and magnesium contribute to good muscle function.- vitamin B6 contributes to the metabolism of proteins and glycogen. Its single-pack, go-anywhere format and chocolate flavour make it the ideal companion for pleasant and effective recovery.
