  • Protein-Powered Fuel:Accelerade®, 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.

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.

Old Man Shuffle
Prior to my injuries and surgeries I used Accelerade and loved it. Now that I'm (hopefully) healthy and back in training there was no doubt I would use it again. The Mountain Berry didn't disappoint - gave me the extra boost needed during my long (20 + mile) "runs". Just remember to shake it vigorously upon initial mixture and before drinking. Thanks to Tim Cassidy of PacificHealth Labs for all his help and quick responses to my questions. You rock Tim!

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.

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.

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

This is my go-to sports drink. I need the calories for my training, especially on long training rides. Since there is also protein, I know it is helping me with my muscle breakdown repair and growth. I was drinking fruit punch flavor before, but I prefer this Mountain Berry flavor instead!

Highly Recommended
I'm not a trained nutritionist so my recommendation is secondhand. I was playing rugby for the army and the weather was rough in some of the places I've played in (Texas, Georgia, Missouri, Arizona). Many times we'd have two practices a day that would last a few hours each. When we were assigned an athletic trainer that was also trained in nutrition we were instructed to take this stuff before, during, and after our practices. As I said before, I'm not trained as a nutritionist and your own choice of supplementation is up to you. A few things can be safely assumed from being highly recommended by trained professionals, first, this must be effective for long workouts. Second, this must provide proper hydration in hot climates during strenuous activity. Third, this must assist in recovery since I also felt great while taking this on top of drinking a ton of water. I felt like I was bouncing back after a rough workout quicker than if I wasn't taking it. I understand these are a lot of assumptions but it's important to remember that supplements like these work differently for each individual. For some guys on the team it was a miracle product and for others it was no different than gatorade or water. Also, understand that this is meant for workouts that last longer than an hour. If you're drinking it for a quick run then you're going to end up with a surplus of calories and protein. As far as performance goes, other than what it does in your body, it mixes well and stays mixed for a short period. I recommend shaking your drink if you let it sit for more than a few minutes. The taste is okay. It's a little gritty but still smooth. If you're looking for the greatest tasting drink you've ever had then I'd suggest looking elsewhere because supplements aren't going to please a picky palate. If you are looking for something to help you during long workouts or between intense workouts then this is a great supplement for you. If you happen to dislike the taste you can try adding in things you might enjoy to enhance the flavor (fruit, juice, mio, or whatever else floats your boat). I rated 4 our of five stars because it's not perfect, very few things are. I use it now for the tough workouts to help me recover

Tastes sorta like Gatorade, good lemon lime flavor
I'm very picky about protein powder taste and this one is a good one. Has a good lemon lime flavor. Don't think it tastes like Gatorade lemon lime, but a fairly close copy. Mixes well, no huge, slow to disappear bubbles. Works great in a shaker bottle. I will be making this my standard protein powder.
