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.

I know how important intra-workout supplementation is, and I have used some of the best products available. Recuper8 stacks up very, very well and comes in at about a quarter of the price. A bit more variety in flavour would be nice, but that's my only criticism.

Flavor is good, could be better without mango and should includes another citric fruit. The foamy is classic and disperses It self quickly. Nutrition facts are great. Supports during ultrarunnins.

Has a really funky smell to it making it hard to drink out of open lid bottles. The flavour isn't too bad, however, it leaves you really dry mouthed after drinking it.

Have been using R8 for over a year but have decided to find a comparable product that does not contain maltodextrin.

I am currently going through a 6 month MMA/UFC fight camp and this product is great for the high intensity workouts, but haven't quite figured out yet about the concentration to use during grappling, jujitsu, floor/mat work. As I am type 1 diabetic the HIIT stuff brings my blood sugar back to normal without needing much insulin and as this product is VERY high in carbs it helps however the absorption rate when not so high intensity is not quick, so still mastering it.
Tastes GREAT, has everything in it from Magnesium, Zinc, BCAA etc perspective so no longer need to take 8 pills each day. Would recommend this to anyone :)

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.

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.

Excellent, keeps me hydrated on long mountain bike rides also love the taste of the mango/orange and look forward to purchasing the blackcurrant next.
Great stuff Bulk Nutrients.

I never knew this product before but now I do I will be taking more often love immensely, thanks guys and gals

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.
