  • Protein-Powered FuelAccelerade®, with its patented 4:1 ratio of carbs and protein, represents a dramatic departure from conventional carb-only sports drinks. Accelerade also demolishes the conventional dogma regarding the importance of protein to help fuel muscle cells and improve rehydration, the two essential criteria for a sports drink. More than 10 peer-reviewed studies have shown that, compared to a conventional carbohydrate electrolyte sports drink, Accelerade:

         · Increases endurance by 29%
         · Decreases muscle damage by 83%
         · Increases rehydration by 15% (and 40% more than water)
         · Increases endurance in a subsequent workout by 40%

    Accelerade makes a hard workout easier.

How Protein Enhances Athletic Performance

The introduction of Accelerade represented an important new chapter in the science of fueling and hydration. Accelerade is the first sports drink that contains protein in a patented 4:1 carbohydrate-protein ratio. Protein-powered Accelerade in multiple studies was shown to have both synergistic effects with both carbohydrates and electrolytes as well as independent effects to enhance endurance and reduce fatigue.

The carbohydrate composition found in Accelerade is different, consisting of 3 short-acting high-glycemic carbohydrates. Each of the carbohydrates uses a different transporter system, thereby increasing the amount of energy that is transported to muscles. And since the sugars are high-glycemic, energy delivery is not delayed by stomach absorption which means faster delivery.

The protein in Accelerade, which contains a high percentage of branched chain amino acids reduces fatigue during exercise and also has a major impact on reducing muscle damage and speeding recovery after exercise. Although these endurance and recovery benefits would make protein-powered Accelerade an ideal choice for a sports drink.

Accelerade is also a better rehydration drink. Just as carbohydrate activates an independent transporter system, so does protein. In fact, in a study comparing Accelerade to a carbohydrate-electrolyte sports drink, and to water, Accelerade was 15% more effective than Gatorade, and 37% more effective than water.

Mixes easily and tastes great!
On both long and short efforts I use Accelerade as one of my fuel sources. It's easy on the stomach and compliments gels and solid food. It mixes easily and tastes great.

I mix a gallon at a time which makes it easier when I'm hot and thirsty.

After enjoying Endurox R4 for so many years, I've finally decided to try Accelerade. I'm half way through my first tub and so far I'm impressed. My favorite use is to mix 1 scoop in 48oz and drink it before and during my long runs of 10+ miles. So far, so good. I plan to re-order.
