Shot Recovery by Clif Bar
An endurance athlete’s #1 concern should be hydration. Performance declines with as little as 2-3% dehydration, not to mention the more serious overall health risks beyond that level.
CLIF SHOT® Electrolyte is designed to deliver fluids to your body at an optimal rate as you sweat them out. Electrolyte contains high levels of sodium and tartness, so that it will quench your thirst, and then subtly prime your thirst mechanism. That way, you keep drinking and stay hydrated.
After hard training or racing, you could be moderately dehydrated. Start your recovery with a beverage. By re-hydrating right after activity, your body will come back to life much faster than if you remain dehydrated. Mix CLIF SHOT® Recovery with water, so that you not only take in needed nutrients, but also the most vital of all – water!
Running out of stored carbohydrate (bonking) is the most limiting factor for endurance athletes. Most people store about 1,600 calories worth of carbohydrate in their muscles and liver. That’s not even ½ the calories needed to run a marathon! CLIF SHOT® Electrolyte allows you to take in additional carbohydrates and push back the time when you could potentially run out of your own stored carbohydrates.
The longer and harder you go, the more carbohydrate you burn. If you do not replace this carbohydrate on a regular basis, then your stores may become chronically low. Post-activity, there is a 30-minute window of opportunity for maximum up-take of carbohydrate by your muscles. As soon as you complete your activity, reach for CLIF SHOT® Recovery.
Mineral salts such as sodium chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium are known collectively as electrolytes. These electrolytes allow electrical impulses to travel properly throughout your body, permitting normal bodily function. When you sweat, you start to deplete your electrolyte stores.
Similar to dehydration, electrolyte depletion will first lead to performance declines and then onto more serious health issues. CLIF SHOT® Electrolyte and CLIF SHOT ® Recovery provide you with ample amounts of sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium to counteract the losses in your sweat.

The paper label on our drink canisters can be easily peeled off and recycled. The canisters are a #2 HDPE and can be recycled curb-side in most municipalities.
