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.

Seems to work and tastes great

I drink about 4 oz. of Endurox R4 before my longest ride of the week and gulp another 16 oz after. Seems to work and I definitely look forward to the recharge after a long ride. I also sip about 8 oz during my heavy leg workouts at the gym and I can say my legs always feel very strong the next day when I ride my MTB, i.e., my legs do not feel tired or sore from the weight training. It doesnt hurt that the Tangy Orange tastes delicious just like Tang from my youth in the 70s. This product dissolves completely and does not have the grainy texture of protein-loaded powder drinks of the 80s and 90s.

The Best

The Pacific Health products are effective for both runners and lifters. The Endurox has been the best recovering supplement when running marathons or doing crossfit.

Great for a post-ride recovery

Great after-bike ride recovery. Every once in a while I hit the hills, on my bike, and KNOW I'm going to have jelly-legs the next day. It really feels like this makes a big difference in recovery. It mixes well. I really enjoy the lemon-lime flavor. As an employee, I get to try a lot of different products...but this has been my favorite post-workout so far.

Amazing Energy Fast Recovery

Endurox R4 has been an amazing help to my post workout routine. After a hard workout I go from lethargic to energized after I take Endurox R4. It does a great job replenishing the glycogen in my muscles. Ive been using it for years and recommend it highly.

Good for Post Run

Great product for post run nutrition only (my experience). However, I take half a serving during my workout when I do strength training and cardio in the same workout.
