Replenishes energy and supports muscle repair

The high quality whey protein isolate in Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix supplies the essential amino acids to support muscle recovery, helping the body repair damaged muscle tissue and get you ready for your next training session or competition.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who should use Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix?
Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix is formulated to promote glycogen restoration and support muscle protein repair immediately after exercise. If you train and compete regularly and want convenient and great tasting nutrition to assist in rebuilding muscle and restoring glycogen stores quickly, Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix is for you.
How do I use Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix?
Use Ironman RESTORE sports drink mix as soon as possible after a workout to jumpstart the recovery process. This is the time when rate of recovery is most rapid, so take full advantage of it. Drink 2–4 8-fl oz servings within 30 minutes after exercise and repeat at 2 hour intervals or until your regular meal schedule resumes. For optimal rehydration, weigh yourself before and after exercise, and for every lb. lost during exercise, drink 16–24 fluid ounces.
Why is it important to consume carbohydrates with protein?
Athletes need to consume carbs during recovery to replenish glycogen fuel stores that get depleted during exercise. Protein is helpful because it supplies amino acid building blocks needed for muscle tissue repair and the building of new muscle tissue in response to exercise. Unless carb intake during recovery is very high, carbs and protein consumed together are better at boosting the rate at which glycogen stores are replenished than carbs alone. The reason for this is that the combination is very effective at boosting insulin levels. Insulin is a natural anabolic hormone that helps the body build and recover after exercise. Thus, carbs and protein provide the necessary building blocks to promote recovery, and when consumed together, they can help speed the recovery process.
