First Endurance Ultragen is an advanced recovery formula designed to be used immediately after exercise. Ultragen's breakthrough technology is designed to work synergistically to provide the right nutrients to the right place at the right time during the 30-minute window of opportunity following exercise for faster than ever before. Each serving of Ultragen delivers the levels of nutrients that have been shown in clinical research to maximize recovery and give an extra edge over the competition.
Ultragen delivers 60g of glucose, because clinical studies show that high glycemic carbohydrates taken after exercise create a catalyst, which increases the uptake of essential nutrients into exhausted muscle. In addition, Ultragen offers a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals, co-factors, glutamine and BCAA's specifically designed to modulate the damaging effects of cortisol brought on by intense endurance training. The Ultragen formula is designed to be fully absorbed within the essential thirty minute glocygen window, when the body is primed to absorb nutrients.
Key nutrition information
To be sure, we are all different riders, with differing body chemistries. For me, First Endurance products WORK. I personally like First Endurance EFS Energy Drink Mix during my rides -- it kicks out the unwanted lactic acid and lets me ride on for many miles strong on my 60 mile route -- and Im 55 years old. As for finishing up my rides, nothing comes even close to First Endurance Ultragen Recovery Drink for rejuvenating my muscles -- great for those back-to-back centuries (like the great TOSERV ride in Ohio each mothers day -- check out Columbus Outdoor Pursuits on the Net and join us next season for the largest two-day citizens ride in the USA -- 210 miles, two day event). Cheers!
As an employee of Excel Sports, I have easy access to all the nutrition and supplement products we offer. Ive tried the full gamut of recovery drinks and Im stuck on Ultragen. It tastes like dessert and mixes better than any other recovery drink. The huge dose of glucose per serving makes it a little sweet, but Ultragen is alwasy easy to digest and I feel great afterwards. Ive been impressed with all of the other products from First Endurance, as well.
