Superfast Energy Gum aids recovery

Post performance boost

As you will all know by now, #superfastgum is the fastest, tastiest sugar free energy boost around, working up to 5 times faster than energy drinks/shots, coffee or energy bars.

But we just wanted to let you know that #superfastgum is also brilliant for post performance recovery as well!

How?

Well, new research from the online edition of the Journal of Applied Physiology shows that caffeine aids carbohydrate uptake. Glycogen, the muscle’s primary fuel source during exercise, is replenished more rapidly when athletes ingest both carbohydrate and caffeine following exhaustive exercise. A further study, published by The American Physiological Society, showed that athletes who ingested caffeine with carbohydrate had 66% more glycogen in their muscles four hours after finishing intense, glycogen-depleting exercise, compared to when they consumed carbohydrate alone. It is already established that consuming carbohydrate and caffeine prior to and during exercise improves a variety of athletic performances. This is the first study to show that caffeine combined with carbohydrates following exercise can help refuel the muscle faster.

“If you have 66% more fuel for the next day’s training or competition, there is absolutely no question you will go farther or faster,” said Dr. Hawley, the study’s senior author.

Improved Performance

Caffeine consumption improved both same day and next day athletic performance, according to an Australian study published in the December 2010 "Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness." Athletes consumed 6 mg per kilogram body weight of caffeine before exercise sessions consisting of five sets of six 20-meter sprints. Repeated sprint ability, reactive agility time, sleep and next day exercise performance were measured. The caffeine group showed improved repeated sprint ability on both days. The performance improvement on the second day indicated a recovery-enhancing effect of the caffeine. The researchers noted that reactive agility time and sleep were unaffected.

So, chewing a couple of pieces of Superfast Energy Gum along with some carbs will help you feel human again after your workout at the gym, after the game or after any strenuous activity.
