Endurox R4 Overview

Training intensity matters, but what matters more is how completely you recover from your training. It's only from the recovery phase that we emerge stronger and in better condition than before; the training session itself just depletes resources and progressively weakens the athlete. All of your strength and conditioning gains occur during the recovery phase only. Sports nutrition specialists Pacific Health Labs understand this and developed Endurox R4 to be a state-of-the-art complete recovery formula. You use Endurox to maximize recovery so you can come back stronger for your next session or event. This is possible because Endurox helps to rehydrate you while replenishing the very things exercise removes from your system, like glycogen and electrolyte minerals. At the same time, it gives you fast-absorbing whey protein to jump-start the rebuilding of damaged muscle and connective tissue. Just as important, Endurox has antioxidants to help counter the increased oxidative damage wrought by intense exercise. Less damage means less time spent recovering.

Nutritionally-minded endurance athletes surely have noticed that the vast majority of sports nutrition supplements are oriented towards bodybuilders and those training for strength and physique, but not necessarily endurance athletes. The post-workout nutritional needs of all types of athlete are similar in terms of nutrients (you need protein, carbohydrates, electrolytes, vitamins and water) but the proportions of nutrients are different for each. Endurance athletes would be much better off with a supplement formulated specifically for them, and not making do with a bodybuilding recovery formula.

Pacific Health developed Endurox R4 specifically for endurance athletes. But that's not to say that other types of active people or bodybuilders can not or should not use it; there's no strict definition about what constitutes an endurance athlete versus other types. Pacific Health says Endurox is for anyone engaged in exercise lasting more than one hour. By using Endurox R4, any type of athlete can recover faster, recover better and reduce post-exercise muscle damage.

What exactly is Endurox R4? Endurox is a blend of protein, carbohydrates, electrolyte minerals and vitamins. These nutrients are in specific amounts and ratios optimized for endurance athletes (as defined above). Endurox has been the subject of several good clinical studies that more-than-adequately support the claims of enhanced recovery and replenishment. Details of these studies are on Pacific Health's website. In the meantime, don't sacrifice results with incomplete post-workout nutrition. Keep training hard, but use Endurox afterward to make steadier progress toward your goals.

Excellent Product

I have used Endurox R4 for years to aid in recovery after long/intense running or swimming workouts workouts that are at least an hour long. Best to drink within a few minutes after the session. E R4 allows me to stay awake the rest of the day, instead of crash for an hour or two and dragging the rest of the day.

Love This Product

Have been using this as a muscle recovery drink after long bicycle rides for over 5 years. I continue to be amazed by how well it works obvious when I run out-it takes my muscles longer to recover and they often cramp up. Tastes so refreshing after a long ride!

Recovery drink...

My favorite recovery drink EVER!! Whether you finished a half-IRONMAN or trying to take care of yourself after a good workout, like P90X. This recovery drink does the trick and tastes good too for a powdered drink.

Lactose issues, still yummy

Lactose maldigestion is a problem for me. I can tolerate this product by making it with water and also drinking lactose free milk at the same time, and 1-2 tabs of lactase pills with it.
