5 Reasons to Drink Fluid Recovery

Protein + Glutamine for Award-Winning Muscle Recovery


You’ve heard me talk about why to choose Fluid Performance over other sports drinks for optimal hydration, and now it is time to talk about recovery drinks.  Fluid Recovery drink mixes were the first product Fluid made back in 2006.recovery-nutrition

Fluid Recovery is a fortified recovery drink with a 4:1 carbohydrate-protein blend. The protein comes entirely from whey protein isolate (the result is lactose-free and gluten-free). Fluid Recovery also provides glutamine, electrolytes and vitamin C and contains organic vanilla and Dutch processed cocoa in the Chocolate Wave flavor.

The benefits of FLUID Recovery are numerous. Ingesting Fluid Recovery within 30 minutes of training or a strenuous workout makes a significant difference in expediting the entire recovery and hydration process.

The Five Benefits of Fluid Recovery

  1. Energy Restoration: Simple & Complex Carbohydrates in optimal balance replenish muscle glycogen levels after exercise training and competition.
  2. Muscle Repair:  Whey Protein Isolate repairs damaged muscle and aids in building new lean muscle.
  3. Reduced Aches & Pains: L-glutamine directly fuels the immune system, aids in tissue repair, and helps to manage exercise-induced inflammation.
  4. Reduced Cramping: Vital electrolytes lost during exercise are replaced and help speed absorption.
  5. Immune System Support: Vitamin C + L-glutamine help scavenge free radicals and nourish a stressed immune system.

It’s your body, so choose wisely in what you put into it with Fluid Recovery!

What’s the Difference Between Fluid & Other Sports Drinks?

Fluid Performance drink mixes are designed using all-natural ingredients to supply efficient energy, buffer lactic acid and alleviate cramps during exercise. Fluid concentrates on providing a sports drink that has less sugar and more (high quality) electrolytes than most other drinks on the market. With less sugar and additives, Fluid is easier on your stomach and easier for your body to absorb.

Fluid vs. Other Sports Drinks

Serious athletes drink sports drinks such as Fluid for the combination of maltodextrin and fructose – in that order. The combination of maltodextrin and fructose equal a complex carbohydrate.This is vital for athletes as it increases the total carbohydrate transport, creating available energy and oxidation, in turn allowing you to exercise at a higher VO2 max once glycogen stores are depleted.

Fluid vs Sports DrinksArtificial sweeteners, simple sugars (e.g. evaporated cane juice) and other mystery ingredients are common in many sports drinks. Despite research proving that ingesting large amounts of sugar, artificial sweeteners and mystery ingredients can cause major intestinal problems including diarrhea and/or cramping – not good news for any athlete or exerciser. (I’m sure some of you can attest to this effect first hand!)

Many people equate good taste with an artificially high sweetness level. By contrast, Fluid tastes light with a hint of sweetness while providing quality hydration.

Why Fluid?

Fluid HydrationFluid contains no artificial  ingredients, stimulants, colors or flavors. It is 100% natural and is gluten-free and lactose-free. Fluid contains the highest quality electrolytes minus the junk that is in so many other products.

It’s your body, so choose wisely. And, drink your Fluid!
