Racing and intense training puts your body under incredible stress, depleting glycogen stores, elevating cortisol and draining essential vitamins and minerals 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. For endurance athletes, it's crucial to focus on recovery in order to be competitive the day after a hard workout or race. That's why the scientists at First Endurance developed Ultragen, the most advanced post recovery formulation ever produced. Each serving of Ultragen delivers the levels of nutrients that have been shown in clinical research to maximize recovery and give you an extra edge over the competition 2,3,4,6,7. In other words, First Endurance does not use pixie dust levels of ingredients just to put on the label. Research has shown that there is a critical thirty minute glycogen window called the window of opportunity immediately following exercise when insulin sensitivity is at its highest and exhausted muscles essentially open the door to nutrients. If nutrients are not absorbed quickly enough, however, this opportunity for maximum restoration is lost. But its not just when nutrients are absorbed, its also about which nutrients are available. The body is extremely complex, requiring more than sugar and protein to fully recover, so recovery is limited without a precise balance of nutrients entering the cell. Ultragens many components are designed to work synergistically in order to fully maximize recovery, providing the right nutrients to the right place at the right time.
