  • Protein for Superior Fueling & Hydration:Accelerade® is made to solve the energy and hydration demands of athletes engaged in intense, sustained exercise. Accelerade is isotonic to help your body absorb water but also contains a 4 to 1 ratio of carbs to protein which aides in both hydration and fueling. Multiple independent studies have found that athletes consuming protein & carbs perform better in high intensity workouts than when they are consuming isotonic-only drinks. Available in 5 great tasting flavors. Click to Read the Studies * See our Product Performance Claims Disclosure below.

When introduced in 2001, Accelerade®, with its patented 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, represented a dramatic departure from conventional carb-only sports drinks and water.  Using cutting edge research and peer-reviewed scientific studies, Accelerade challenged the conventional thinking regarding the role of protein in a sports drink, which had long maintained that protein was only useful for building muscle.  Science ruled the day and athletes everywhere benefited.

Although isotonic sports drinks are all the rage these days, this fad fails to address the numerous scientific studies that have long established that the addition of carbohydrates to isotonic (electrolyte only) sports drinks activates a transport system that allows more water to be absorbed by the body. How about good old, fashioned water?  Water alone performs relatively poorly in a rehydration role because it needs some form of active transport system, typically via sodium or carbohydrates, to get into your body's cells.  Protein activates yet another transport system with the result that your body is able to absorb yet again more water.

Worried about carbs?  Us too, but not in the context of hard, cardio-demanding exercise.  Your body needs them.

What is the Goal here? 

The science is very clear that dehydration leads to poor athletic performance. We know that dehydration causes an increase in heart rate, decrease in blood flow due to thickening blood, increase in core body temperature and results in a lessened ability to focus and concentrate.

Your sports drink should provide effective hydration at a minimum and possibly fueling depending on your level of activity and your training goals. 
Accelerade provides clinically-proven superior hydration and is an excellent source of fuel for those athletes who need fueling. We also know, that the inclusion of protein in a sports drink reduces fatigue and perceived exertion through a mechanism involving branch-chain amino acids. For studies and additional information, please review the information on the Science tab above. 

To date more than 10 peer-reviewed studies have shown that, compared to conventional sports drinks or water, Accelerade 

  • Increases endurance by 29%
  • Decreases muscle damage by 83%
  • Increases rehydration by 15%

I have used EDUROX R4, ACCELERADE and EDUROX EXCEL for more than 10 years. I have been in Law Enforcement for 23 years and this is the first product that has helped me in my profession. I started it to help me prepare for the physical agility required to join a SWAT team and felt amazing results making it so much easier to prepare. I continued to use it for my workout routines and then used to to prepare for the US Border Patrol Academy at age 36. I competed the academy competing with a younger crowd with such ease and felt great. My endurance kept improving and I never suffered a migraine headache throughout the academy which I have always suffered from since I was a child. I continue to use all three products to help me at work with the long and hot walks wearing full gear in the Laredo, TX heat. I am 45 years old right now and feel better than I did when I was younger. I have tried Lemon Lime, Tangy Orange but my favorite is Fruit Punch. I just wish they had this when I was younger.

Love it!
I am training for my first marathon and didn't think the fueling gels and chews I have used for half marathons would work for me (and my stomach). I ordered the sample pack of gels and accelerade. The gels are super easy to take while running, taste good, help maintain energy on my long runs and no digestive issues!! Love the fruit punch accelerade also. Order more for the rest of my training.

I am a professional swimmer and I have always loved the pacific health lab line of products since a friend of mine introduced me to them back in college. I feel the difference when I fuel my body with them and couldn't imagine myself training to full potential without them.

This is a fantastic product. I work outside in long sleeve/pant FR clothing. Without accelerade I get nauseous and dizzy. It really saves me through the summer
