TORQ Recovery is a highly advanced post-exercise nutritional drink formulation that has been designed to repair, recharge and refuel fatigued muscle tissue after heavy exercise. TORQ’s unique matrix of Glucose Polymers, Fructose and Whey Protein Isolate stimulate the rapid absorption of carbohydrate to re-stock vital glycogen stores. TORQ’s active ingredients, D-Ribose, L-Glutamine and blend of carefully selected vitamins and minerals work together to repair and recharge over-stressed muscle fibers. We believe TORQ recovery to be the most thorough and effective formulation of its kind on the market today – yet we flavor it NATURALLY and use no colors or artificial sweeteners. There is not a single ingredient within TORQ recovery’s formulation that isn’t derived from a NATURAL source, or doesn’t naturally-occur within the human body.
Consuming carbohydrate and protein at a 3:1 ratio within 15 minutes of finishing exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis. In other words, it will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than consuming carbohydrate alone and/or waiting until this 15-minute window of opportunity has passed. It is also generally accepted that whey protein is faster acting and available more quickly than any other kind of protein, thus it provides the amino acids necessary for muscle repair with little delay. TORQ recovery represents this 3:1 blend of carbohydrate and high quality whey protein. isolate
It is TORQ’s unique blend of D-Ribose, L-Glutamine, Vitamins and Minerals that sets it apart from other recovery products on the market. L-Glutamine helps to protect the muscles from catabolic (muscle degrading) processes after exercise and also strengthens the immune system. D-Ribose re-charges the muscle cells after exercise so that they have the energy to contract to their full potential within 24 hours, a process that would take up to 3 days without supplemental Ribose. These are particularly expensive ingredients (they represent about 50% of this product, yet are only 9% of the ingredient pool) and it is not unusual for nutrition companies to claim that their products contain components like these, whilst providing too small a dose to have a significant effect. Most other products don’t contain them at all. We do not believe in compromise, so every serving of TORQ Recovery contains a dose of D-Ribose and L-Glutamine that has been verified by the available research.
Finally, the vitamins and minerals we blend into TORQ recovery are comprehensive. Heavy exercise takes an inevitable toll on the body and our recovery formulation wouldn’t be complete without a generous serving of these essential micro-nutrients.
