The nutrient requirement in athletes is highest during and immediately after intense and prolonged physical activity. The 30 - 45 minute window after training or events is a crucial time during which the body races to recover as quickly as possible. The body’s evolutionary instinct to immediately replace muscle glycogen (our first and main source of energy) means that it will use whatever nutrients are available, including amino acids present in muscle tissue, resulting in muscle wastage.
By rapidly supplying carbohydrates to replace glycogen, as well as fast acting protein to replace amino acids, the body recovers quickly, without breaking down existing amino acids. USN’s PREMIUM EPIC PRO ALL-IN-ONE is precisely formulated as an elite post-training/event recovery drink and/or a comprehensive energy, amino acid and electrolyte replacement drink to use during long periods of intense physical activity such a multi-day sport events, Ironman events, marathons etc. USN’s PREMIUM EPIC PRO ALL-IN-ONE is also valuable in enhancing recovery from shorter duration, high intensity activities like sprinting, rugby, power-lifting, weight-lifting etc.
The carbohydrate blend consists of six sources with varying degrees of uptake, although the majority is fast-acting, as recommended. The Matrix includes the patented, high molecular weight Vitargo® agglomerated barley starch as well as Palatinose™ (Isomaltulose) which is the only low glycaemic carbohydrate with prolonged energy supply in the form of glucose.
Protein is supplied in the form of the premium sources PeptoPro® Hydrolysed Casein, Whey Protein Hydrolysate, as well as added BCAAs and L-Glutamine. PeptoPro® is a registered trademark of DSM or a DSM Brand.
Lightly flavoured with real fruit components. FREE FROM ARTIFICIAL COLOURANTS, SWEETENERS & PRESERVATIVES.
A low temperature ultra-filtration process is used to produce the whey used in USN’s products. Read more about this process here.
WHEN TO TAKE EPIC PRO
PERFORMANCE: During long, strenuous endurance events or training sessions, take one full serving every 60-90 minutes. Take a few sips every 15-20 minutes. For optimal results, drink a full serving within 1 hour leading up to the start of your race, taking small sips every few minutes.
