Protein-Powered Fuel:Accelerade®, with its patented 4:1 ratio of carbs and protein, represents a dramatic departure from conventional carb-only sports drinks. Accelerade also demolishes the conventional dogma regarding the importance of protein to help fuel muscle cells and improve rehydration, the two essential criteria for a sports drink. More than 10 peer-reviewed studies have shown that, compared to a conventional carbohydrate electrolyte sports drink, Accelerade:
· Increases endurance by 29%
· Decreases muscle damage by 83%
· Increases rehydration by 15% (and 40% more than water)
· Increases endurance in a subsequent workout by 40%
Accelerade makes a hard workout easier.
