Product Description

Recuper8 Bulk Nutrients Intra and Post Event, Endurance and Recovery Formula

Recuper8 includes a variety of ingredients which have been proven through clinical trials to assist endurance and enhance recovery for those competing in gruelling events. This formula is developed not just to provide necessary ingredients, but to ensure that actual validated doses are used as well as incorporating any synergistic effects where possible.

Recuper8 should be taken during training or any event, with one (80g) serve to be consumed each 1 2 hours, depending on the severance of the activity. In events which are less than 2 hours, many people will choose to have one serve during the activity, with another serve to assist recovery, directly after the event has finished.

For optimum replenishment and recovery, it is advised that the serve consumed directly after exercise is taken as soon as possible once the event or training is complete.

Recuper8 is scientifically formulated using a blend of carbohydrates, protein, free form amino acids and electrolytes that should assist with energy, hydration, reducing muscle soreness, reducing recovery time and sustaining energy levels throughout an event. By utilising the most verified ratio of carbohydrates to protein at 4 1 Recuper8 should minimise any rapid sugar spikes and crashes caused by high GI Carbohydrates. The role of protein and BCAAs/ Protein in Recuper8 is two fold, it helps sustain the delivery of energy to the body in a more linear fashion, and it plays a significant role in minimising muscle soreness and wastage as well as recovery post event.

In Recuper8 the Carbohydrates are approx. 60g per serve. It has been advised that carbohydrates levels of 1g per minute are optimal, and ideal osmolality is reached when 60g of the correct combination of carbohydrates are blended with 1000mls of water.

Recuper8 starts with a carefully balanced combination of varying carbohydrates, Maltodextrin, and Glucose. By incorporating a combination of medium and short chained carbohydrates the product should provide sustained energy. Incorporating multiple carb sources, Recuper8 can increase total carbohydrate oxidation in the body, by having two sugar transports active in the gut Research has shown that by incorporating a blend of carbohydrates, the total level of carbohydrate absorption can be significantly higher (up to 30%) than using a single carbohydrate, which is demonstrated by higher lactate levels in subjects.

Our formula also utilises a free form BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acid) blend along with a virtually lactose free WPI source for protein. Recuper8 combines protein to carbohydrates at a scientifically validated 4-1 ratio, rarely used in such products, but a ratio very heavily supported by research.

The total protein per serve is 14.5g, with 7.5g of these being BCAAs.

By utilising free form BCAAs Recuper8 provides the necessary building blocks in greater concentration. BCAAs being absorbed rapidly also mean a faster delivery of the product to the muscles, with less risk of stomach discomfort. BCAAs have also proven to aid recovery, by decreasing muscle soreness and a better retention of muscular force (so you can train harder, sooner) with doses of 7.5g the dose utilised in a serve of Recuper8.

The other addition to the product is Citrulline Malate, with a dose of 2000mg. Citrulline Malate has been shown in studies to reduce muscle soreness, increase BCAA absorption as well as increasing muscular endurance, exactly what is required for athletes who compete in sustained events. It has also been shown to reduce the sensation of fatigue, which is another important factor for those in endurance sports.

L Glutamine a conditionally essential amino acid is also incorporated due to its ability to reduce blood ammonia levels. It has been shown to reduce these levels after the first hour in races, and with high ammonia concentrations seen as being detrimental to performance this should be beneficial. Recuper8 contains 1300mg of Glutamine per serve.

Finally, a combination of electrolytes, chloride, potassium, magnesium and sodium which will assist in maintaining and replenishing electrolyte levels. These have all been included in ratios which are consistent with research and optimum hydration.

  • Really Great...kinda smelly tho?

    Posted by on Jan 30, 2017

    Bought this to have during a workout instead of BCAA's. Flavour is awesome, doesn't mix well in beginning but is dissolved by the time you finish it. Only complaint is it has a funky as, like cheese/foot smell if you have the bag in the cupboard but up close/when drinking you can't smell it at all. Weird, but if you store it right it's no problem. Really great all-round product if you're training and don't have time for a post-work out meal.

  • I've had 25kgs of this stuff

    Posted by on Oct 14, 2016

    Been using this since they released it last year. Bought 25kgs I think? The pros to this are huge. Magnesium, Glutamine and BCAAs for recovery, carbs for use during exercise, Citrulline malate for preworkout... flavour is acceptable... I rode 180kms every Saturday last summer in the heat and I used this and chocolate bars to recover. I would recommend lowering the dosage to 30g per 650ml instead of 40g per 500ml because it can be rough on the stomach when you are drinking over a litre of it in a day. Best product this company makes, absolutely unique in the market.

  • Great

  • Excellent product

    Posted by on Aug 31, 2016

    Love the taste, mango and orange. Great profile and keeps me hydrated whilst I train, and staves of the hunger/empty stomach feeling I get if training session goes on for a while.

  • Great allrounder

    Posted by on Aug 15, 2016

    Great for Intra Workout for Strength/hypertrophy sessions, and great for maintained energy levels while hiking

  • Worth it !

    Posted by on Jun 28, 2016

    Amazing product. I use during my workouts . It's got everything you need carbs, proteins, electrolytes, BCAAs.

  • Good but mango flavour is disgusting

    Posted by on May 12, 2016

    I find this supplement to be sufficient in its nutritional value but sweet merciful yuck the mango orange flavour tastes horrible and now I have to get through 2.5kg of it. Otherwise top stuff bulk nutrients.

  • Great Taste and heaps of energy!

    Posted by on Mar 08, 2016

    Love the taste and gives me everything I need to power through workouts and recover in time for the next one!

  • Amazing

    Posted by on Jan 17, 2016

    Been using Recuper8 for strenuous training sessions for ages and simply love the product.

    I mix with water during sessions and get a noticeable lift in endurance. With a tendency to over train, this product gives me so much energy, I literally don't get tired and have to remind myself to stop!

    With plenty of electrolytes, my muscles don't cramp up. Mix of protein and slow burning, low sugar carbs is really effective in providing an endurance effect. Day after training I am in great shape, recovering much faster than well known "Sports" Drinks.

    Fantastic value once again from Bulk Nutrients
