Health Benefits at a Glance:
Carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks can improve endurance performance, enhance lactate removal, and thereby delaying the onset of fatigue 1. Also, carbohydrates support performance prolonged intensity exercise and recovery 2 3.
Why it Works:
NUTRAMINO SPORTS DRINK is a classic sports drink containing carbohydrates and electrolytes. Sports drink is characterized by its concentration of water, carbohydrates, and salts, which are similar to the ones in the body’s own fluid.
The Science Behind the Product:
During exercise loss of sweat can cause dehydration. Dehydration causes reduced blood volume and thereby the heart rate increases. Carbohydrate-electrolyte has a significant role in energy balance, by a restoration of glycogen and minerals. The fluid contributes to lowering of heart rate while the minerals help restore the electrolyte balance which will boost the process of water absorption 4.
Carbohydrates have shown to improve glycogen synthesis. A lack of glycogen stores in the muscle and liver can limit the performance capacities if the body during prolonged or higher intensity exercise 5.
Carbohydrates have also been shown to have a positive effect on recovery. Carbohydrates intake during recovery has been shown to replenish depleted glycogen after intense exercise.
