  • 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.

A solid sports drink for endurance workouts and races that delivers needed nutrients without having an overwhelming sweet taste. The amount of powder used is very individualized - I found that I needed a full rounded scoop per 1,000ml of water. The product foams a bit too much for me, and the bottle needed constant shaking to remix before each drink. However, I only tested in on an indoor trainer bike so there was no 'road motion' to keep it mixed as there would be outside. I used it for multiple long trainer rides (7-9 hours) this product didn't fail me. No cramping, no undue fatigue, no GI distress from consuming it too often/too quickly.

Love it!
I have used the Accelerade for a few years and have no issues with it. Usually take two 24 Oz bottles for my rides of 2 hrs. or so, sometimes mix flavors like orange and lemon lime. Also no stomach issues.

Does what I need it to do. Necessary if I find myself dehydrated from the booze or otherwise. Great before a long run. 5 stars if it mixed better, but I'd still eat it with a fork if that's what the directions said to do.

And can say Accelerade makes a difference for my running performances to stay strong, consistent, improve my fitness level and recover faster! I would highly recommend you join the Accelerade team of flavors!
