  • 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.

Good stuff
I've been using this for a long time, around 7 years. It has stayed consistent and I do feel energized when I'm working out and drinking this on breaks. I like the fruit punch the best.

the protein mix/ratio is a must for endurance athletes. I use as part of a custom blend with other products. It rounds out my "special" formulation for hours of continuous exercise/competition.

My go-to electrolyte drink for years
I sip this during my long runs and on hot days. It's easy on the stomach, keeps my energy levels constant and lessens after-run fatigue. It's been my go-to electrolyte drink for years.
