Endurox R4 was to be the perfect recovery drink by Pacific Health labs. After intense bouts of exercise your body needs to recover by restoring glycogen levels and providing protein to help you build lean muscle. Endurox R4 is a recovery drink that can be used for lots of different exercises but it most often used by endurance athletes such as runners and cyclists. Endurox R4 has been shown to help athletes recover faster through carefully designed ingredients.
What results can I expect with Endurox R4?
In studies against the leading sports drink, Endurox R4 delivered equal hydration effectiveness and was proven to:
Why is insulin the "master recovery hormone"?
Insulin regulates glycogen replenishment post exercise and also maintains muscle protein by both preventing breakdown and stimulating rebuilding of protein. Because Endurox R4 maximizes insulin levels, it produces a faster and stronger recovery.
What is the importance of OR2 (Optimum Recovery Ratio)?
Although researchers have noted that protein can provide a number of essential benefits in the recovery process, too much protein can actually slow restoration of glycogen and rehydration. Endurox R4 is unique because it provides the ideal Optimum Recovery Ratio of 4:1 (4 grams of carbohydrate to one gram of protein) to deliver the benefits of protein without negatively affecting rehydration and glycogen restoration. Endurox R4 is so unique it has a patent.
How does ciwujia and glutamine help in the recovery process?
Standardized extract of ciwujia (Endurox) and glutamine have been shown to bolster the body's defense mechanisms, a key benefit for the training athlete, as well as to reduce stress during exercise.

Endurox R4 should be taken within two hours after exercise. During this time your muscle cells are far more efficient in replenishing muscle glycogen stores when there is sufficient amount of carbohydrate available and insulin is stimulated. Endurox R4 provides the necessary carbohydrate and protein in the correct proportion to stimulate insulin, the body's master recovery hormone. The amount of Endurox R4 you should consume depends on your body weight. The table below offers a good guideline:
