IB15: Nutrition Roundup – Tasty treats from Endurox, Pickle Power, Honey Stinger, Compete, Six Nutrition & more!
Recently, I’d be wondering what had happened to Endurox and it’s family. For a while there, it was all anybody used and became the 4:1 benchmark against which all other recovery drinks were suddenly fashioned after. And then, at least ’round these parts, they all but disappeared.
Well, they didn’t. They’ve been plugging along for the past 10 or so years since the heyday, and now they’ve got a new new flavors and a new gel that’s loaded to hilt with energy to blast you through the next big ride. And there’s an all-natural sports drink they didn’t even show at Interbike!
Above, Green Apple is the latest in their Accelerade line, which is a less concentrated version of Endurox R4 that’s intended for use during activity. It joins an already expansive menu including orange, lemon lime, mountain berry, lemonade and fruit punch. The formula has been updated to include both whey and soy protein, the latter adding higher amounts of glutamine, arginine and valine, amino acids that boost protein utilization for energy and overall recovery.
