Description:

Our body is an amazingly complex machine. All of its various cells and tissues communicate with each other, and their activities are precisely coordinated. Even as you sit reading this, your heart pumps blood throughout your body, your intestines digest and absorb nutrients, your kidneys clear waste products and your lungs bring in oxygen. Although you may feel at rest, your body is physiologically quite active. Imagine, then, how much more active all of your body systems become when you engage in active movement. As your physical activity increases, so does your muscle's physiological activity. Active muscles require more nutrients to serve the wide variety of metabolic functions and events. It is a common misconception that physical activity is an "anabolic event", during which our body builds tissues, when it is, in fact, a "catabolic event", during which tissues and fuel sources are being broken down. It is the post-exercise recovery that is responsible for the rebuilding process. And as in any construction site, the right building blocks are required to rebuild that which has broken down and become depleted.

Electrolytes:

  • Electrolytes are imperative to preserving water balance and the function of the nervous and the muscular systems.
  • Electrolytes are lost in sweat and urine both during and after exercise.
  • Your recovery drink should include the appropriate amounts of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
  • Sodium should be in the range of 900-1000mg/litre for optimal rehydration.
  • EMEND supplies 940 mg/litre of sodium, which is a practical upper limit of sodium due to impaired taste with higher concentrations. All other electrolytes are present in physiological ranges.


    Antioxidants:

  • Antioxidants are important in the recovery period as they neutralize free radicals generated by aerobic exercise.
  • They can help reduce protein oxidation by free radicals and prevent secondary muscle fatigue.
  • Water soluble antioxidants are safest as surpluses can be urinated out of the body.
  • Vitamin C is a safe, effective, water soluble antioxidant.
  • EMEND contains a buffered (low acid), long shelf life form of Vitamin C that is very stomach friendly.
