Why do I need a recovery drink?

To develop your sports performance you need a training programme to stimulate cardiovascular and muscular adaptations combined with a period of recovery to all the body to repair and rebuild itself into a h3er state than before. The real changes occur during recovery, not during training. To support the repair and rebuilding requires sufficient rest and optimal nutrition. Pura ReCharger has been designed to specifically meet the needs of your body as you recover so that you can obtain the most out of your workout.

Who should use Pura ReCharger?

We have designed Pura ReCharger to meet the recovery demands of any athlete taking part in intense and/or endurance based training and competition. This includes runners, cyclists, triathletes, swimmers, team sports players and gym-goers.

When should I drink Pura ReCharger?

Your body is most receptive to protein and carbohydrate within the first 30 minutes of completing a workout. Therefore we recommend that you drink one bottle as soon as possible after finishing. If the session has been especially long or hard we suggest you drink a second serving about 2 hours after finishing to maximise your recovery.

What is so special about a 3:1 Carbohydrate to Protein ratio?

Research has shown that the optimal ratio of carbohydrate to protein for optimal recovery is 3:1. Carbohydrate is important to replace the glycogen used during training. Protein provides the vital building blocks for muscles to repair and rebuild. Carbohydrate is essential to transport the protein into the muscles.

Why does Pura ReCharger use a Casein and Whey protein mix?

Whey is a fast digested protein which supplies amino acids rapidly to the muscles. Whereas Casein is a slowly digested protein which is absorbed slowly by the stomach and thus extends the time over which protein is delivered to the muscles. This is important because the body can only utilise a limited amount of protein at once.

What is Inulin and why is it included?

Inulin is a naturally occurring soluble, dietary fibre extracted from chicory root. Inulin is a probiotic and bifidogenic which can help to promote healthy digestion and encourage healthy bacteria in the gut. Following intense training your immune system is suppressed and Inulin can help to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal problems.

What are ionic electrolytes?

Ionic electrolytes are essential for rehydration. During exercise we not only lose fluid but also electrolytes and it is necessary to replace these. The body requires electrolytes in their ionically charged form and very few sports nutrition products include electrolytes in this form. Our ionic electrolyte mix includes a precisely balanced ionically charged blend of magnesium, potassium, sodium and chloride, as well as over 60 other naturally occurring trace and ultra trace elements. Together these nutrients help to return the body to its resting state and allow all our cells to function optimally.

What are glutamine peptides?

Glutamine peptides are non-essential amino acids which are the most abundant amino acid in muscle cells. They have a high bioavailability and rapid uptake speed which means they help to speed up and enhance the recovery process.

What is Chromium Picolinate?

Chromium Picolinate is an essential trace mineral which plays a vital role in the metabolism of carbohydrate and maintaining normal blood glucose levels. It is important as a recovery nutrient as it ensures that the carbohydrate you consume is used efficiently and effectively.

Can I mix Pura ReCharger with milk?

Although you could mix Pur ReCharger with milk, it has been designed to be mixed with water and using milk will effect the absorption rate of the protein and carbohydrate and increase the calorie content. Therefore we recommend mixing the product with water.

Can I mix Pura ReCharger with more/less water than the recommended 500ml?

Yes. You can mix the powder with a little less or more water as this will only effect the taste.

Is a scoop included in the tub?

Yes. A scoop is included in the tub. During transportation the scoop may become buried in the powder so you may need to use a fork to find it!

Does Pura ReCharger contain any artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings?

No. All our products are made using only natural ingredients.

Scientifically Proven Effectiveness

Recovery after training is essential if you are to gain the most from the training session you have just completed. To effectively and efficiently recover and become stronger your body needs an easily accessible source of carbohydrate and protein. Pura Re-Charger has been designed to ensure that you get exactly what is required to recover as quickly as possibly.

To get the most out of your Pura Re-Charger we recommend that you consume the drink within 30 minutes of finishing your training. During the “window of opportunity” your muscles are most receptive to taking up carbohydrate and protein to refuel and rebuild.

Pura Re-Charger utilises the ideal 80:20 mix of casein and whey protein in milk protein concentrate (MPC) to provide a sustained supply of protein to keep repair going longer. In addition to MPC Pura Re-Charger contains easily digested carbohydrate in the optimal 3:1 ratio to protein to help transport the protein into the muscles and to replenish glycogen stores in the muscles.

The inclusion of electrolytes in Pura Re-Charger aims to continue the rehydration process and replenish electrolytes lost through sweat.

A range of potent B-Vitamins ensure that the carbohydrate and protein are broken down and metabolised efficiently to ensure they are available to refuel and rebuild your muscles. Glutamine Peptides provide further enhancement for the use of protein within the muscles to help them repair and grow and also help to control blood sugar levels and thus reduce feelings of fatigue and sugar cravings.

The pre-biotic Inulin has also been included to provide protection against gastrointestional distress especially when the immune system is compromised post-exercise.

This recovery protein drink is amazing - best mixed with milk to bring out the chocolate flavour! Such a nice drink to have after the gym.
