Formulation that includes;
- Foods that promote the re-hydration of the body.
- Re-fuels the body quickly with high quality glucose.
- Provides complete protein and a high portion of branch chained amino acids (BCAA) the muscles can use towards recovery, repair and muscle build. In addition, this protein needs to be quickly and easily absorbed, i.e not tax an already exhausted body just to digest.
- Is low carbohydrate, will low GI (slow release) energy.
- Includes food(s) which are particularly good at assisting in hormonal rebalancing.

Superfood Options Include
Organic Coconut Water Powder – “Nature’s Gatorade”, the perfect rehydration drink. An outstanding source of carbohydrates / sugars for restoring muscle glycogen and restoring electrolyte balance.
Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein – by dry weight is 80% protein which due to bio-fermentation is largely already broken down and therefore easy to absorb. As the body recovers post exercise, you don’t want to have a lot of energy (blood flow) to the digestive system (and away from the extremities). Sprouted brown rice protein being largely “pre-digested”, lessens the burden on the digestive system, yet provides a source of protein to enable muscle protein synthesis and repair.
Another great thing about brown rice protein is that for branched chain amino acids, its exceeds the amount of BCAAs found in whey for 2 out of the 3 (isoleucine and valine). For leucine, whey is higher but only by less than one-half of a percentage point.
Organic Sachi Inchi Protein Powder 10 – by dry weight is 60% protein, and a complete protein source (contains all 9 essential amino acids). Like brown rice protein powder though, it digests easily.
Organic Goji Berry Powder – is in itself a complete protein, containing 18 amino acids, 21 minerals, glyconutrients for cell communication and more beta-carotene than any other food on earth. Stress on the body through exercise create free radicals that are a major factor in inhibiting post workout recovery. Goji Berries are among the top food sources of free radical counteracting antioxidants which speed up recovery.
Organic Maca Powder – one of the great benefits of maca is it’s adaptogenic qualities. Basically this means that it helps the body adapt hormonally. Whilst maca is commonly associated with helping the body prepared for vigorous activity, equally, after exercise, it helps bring down elevated levels of cortisol to assists in faster recovery.
Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder – has even higher levels (6x) of antioxidants than Goji Berries. There have also been many studies on the positive effects of matcha green tea consumption both pre and post exercise. In a study published by the National Institute of Health, green tea was shown to increase fat oxidation by an average of 17%, showing that the tea actually selectively increases the burning of fat and utilizing it as an energy source for the body.
Banana Powder – banana are a favourite pre / post workout food for athletes the world over. They provide low GI carbohydrates and are an excellent source of potassium.
Tumeric / Ginger Powder – these spices (particularly turmeric) is being picked up a lot in sports science as a valuable post-exercise food to consume, due to it’s extraordinary antioxidant content.
Organic Siberian Ginseng – similar to Maca, has adaptogenic qualities. Has been heavily researched and used for assisting recovery.
Organic Schisandra Berry Powder – again another adaptogenic food which has sports nutrition application.
