It is generally accepted that consuming carbohydrate and protein at a 3:1 ratio within 15 minutes of finishing exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis. In other words, it will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than consuming carbohydrate alone and/or waiting until this 15-minute window of opportunity has passed. It is also generally accepted that whey protein is faster acting and available more quickly than any other kind of protein, thus it provides the amino acids necessary for muscle repair with little delay. TORQ recovery represents this 3:1 blend of carbohydrate and high quality whey protein.
It is TORQ's unique blend of D-Ribose, HMB, L-Glutamine, vitamins and minerals that sets it apart from other recovery products on the market. D-Ribose and HMB are particularly expensive and important ingredients and it is not unusual for other supplements to lack effective doses of each. TORQ’s do not believe in compromise, so every serving of TORQ Recovery contains a dose of D-Ribose, HMB and L-Glutamine that has been proven to be effective.
Put simply, TORQ ribose rapidly re-charges the muscle cell with energy, whilst HMB acts like a bionic protein, helping to protect the muscle structure against muscle damage and quickly building new tissue that has been stimulated through the training process. It helps your muscles to grow.
L-Glutamine is present in the more advanced recovery products on the market and there's good reason for it. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, in a large part because it is needed a lot by the brain, intestines, kidneys, lungs and immune system and also because you can manufacture your own. However, if you leave your body to produce its own supply, it will break down muscle tissue in order to make it available. Logic dictates that this is not desirable when you are a training athlete. Therefore, supplementation with L-Glutamine immediately after exercise stops the body scavenging for an alternative supply and eating into your well-earned muscle.
Finally, the vitamins and minerals blended into TORQ recovery are comprehensive. Heavy exercise takes an inevitable toll on the body and the formulation wouldn't be complete without a generous serving of these essential micro-nutrients.
What is Fruit Pectin? You will note from our listings below that we use this ingredient in TORQ recovery to thicken it. Fruit Pectin is a natural extract of fruit that gives our product a luxurious creamy mouth feel and has been used in jam making for many years. We have harped on about the functionality of this product, but we also think you will find it very pleasant to drink.
Dose: For best results, use our TORQ recovery mixer bottle and cold refrigerated water. Add TORQ recovery powder to the appropriate amount of water (as illustrated in the table below) and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
Usage: Consume TORQ recovery within 15 minutes of finishing exercise. During periods of particularly high load training or back-to-back racing, also consume 1gram per Kg body weight of NATURAL (unflavoured) TORQ energy 2 and 4 hours post exercise.
