Endurox R-4 Carbohydrate Protein Formula Chocolate - 2.31 lb. (1050 g)
Endurox R 4 Carbohydrate Protein Formula is the only recovery drink with the 4:1 carb to protein ratio, and is proven to reduce muscle damage and increase both muscle function and endurance in a subsequent workout. All Natural Endurox R4 still contains its patented 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein, but now includes both which enhances the overall effectiveness of their protein-powered recovery drink.
Endurox R-4, with its patented ratio of carbohydrate and protein (4-1) along with antioxidants, electrolytes, and glutamine, is proven to help muscles:
Recover Faster - Replenishes muscle glycogen levels 128% more than a carbohydrate drink
Carbohydrate/protein formula rebuilds muscle protein 38% more than a protein drink
Recover Better - Reduces post-exercise muscle damage up to 36%
Come Back Stronger - Extends endurance up to 55% in a subsequent workout
The important discovery that led to the development of Endurox R4 was the identification of the recovery window, the 45-minute interval following exercise. During this time, cellular processes involved in replenishing and rebuilding the muscle cells are activated. When the right combination of nutrients is provided during this critical time interval there is an enormous enhancement in muscle recovery. With Endurox R4 you recover fast, recover better, and come back stronger!
Developed by leading exercise physiologists Endurox R4, with its patented ratio of carbohydrates to protein, is proven to speed muscle recovery and reduce muscle damage following exercise. No product can help your muscles rebuild and recover faster.
And, because different athletes have different recover needs, Endurox has also created Endurox Restore, for exercise bouts lasting less than one hour. Both improved Endurox R4 and Endurox Restore contain the proven and patented science of the 4-1 carbohydrate to protein ratio

Endurox Questions & Answers
What is Endurox and when should I take it?
Endurox R4 is a recovery drink featuring the patented 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio that increases muscle energy replenishment following exercise, decreases post exercise muscle damage and improves endurance capacity in a subsequent workout.
What is the 4:1 ratio?
The 4:1 Ratio is the unique ratio of 4 parts carbohydrate to 1 part protein that fuels superior endurance, performance, hydration and recovery. Until the late 1990s, exercise and post-exercise nutrition for athletes was all about carbohydrate. Then a group of leading exercise physiologists came together to formulate the next generation of sports nutrition products based on the very latest science. They discovered that a 4:1 ratio significantly enhanced hydration, increased endurance, reduced exercise-related muscle damage, and accelerated post-exercise muscle recovery compared to carbohydrate alone.
Are Your Products Kosher?
ACCELERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ENDUROX R4 have OUD Kosher certification. ACCEL GEL, ENDUROX EXCEL, 2nd SURGE, and ACCEL RECOVER are not Kosher.
What Allergens are Present in Your Products?
ACCELERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ENDUROX R4, contain milk and soy. ACCEL GEL contains milk. Each of these products are manufactured in a facility that processes eggs, wheat, tree nuts, fish, crustaceans and shellfish products.
Are Their Products Wheat/Gluten Free?
They do not make gluten-free claims on any of their products, because their products are not manufactured on allergen-free production lines. Their recommendation, if you have a gluten sensitive allergy, would be to check with your physician for guidance.
I have a corn allergy, are any of your products free of corn and corn derivatives?
No their products are not free of corn and corn derivatives. Maltodextrin, which is in Accelerade, Hydro, Accel Gel, Endurox R4, and Accel Recover, is made from corn. Their 2nd Surge and Endurox Excel does not contain Maltodextrin, so these products would be safe.
I am Lactose Intolerant; Can I Use Your Products?
The source of protein used in ACCLERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ACCEL GEL and ENDUROX R4 is all natural whey protein from milk and this protein source does carry a residual amount of lactose in the finished product. The maximum lactose content is < 2%, which may not be of concern to the vast majority of individuals who are lactose intolerant. However, if there is concern due to allergy or lactose intolerance they recommend consulting your physician.
I have Type II diabetes is this a safe workout drink for me?
All of their products are safe for people who have type II diabetes as long as you are exercising within a short time of consuming the product. Exercise will result in a faster transport of carbohydrate (sugar) into the muscle.
Are Your Products Safe For Children Under The Age of 18?
Yes, all of their products are safe for children. For basic hydration needs they recommend Accelerade or Accelerade Hydro. For advanced recovery needs, they recommend Endurox R4. If your child weighs less than 120 lbs. they recommend reducing the serving of Endurox R4 to 1 scoop.
Do Any of Their Products Have Caffeine?
Two of the size available ACCEL GEL flavors have caffeine.
Their 2nd Surge flavors both have caffeine.
I've Lost my Scoop; What are the Equivalents for a Serving?
ACCELERADE - each serving is approximately 2-3/4 tablespoons
ACCELERADE HYDRO - each serving is approximately 1-1/2 tablespoons
ENDUROX R4 - each serving is approximately 7-3/4 tablespoons

All of their powders are designed for immediate consumption. They do not provide a shelf life for the mixed/prepared product, because there are several factors which can affect how the product will taste over time.
