TORQ Recovery Bar utilises a 3:1 blend of Carbohydrate and 100% Whey Protein: Research has proven that consuming Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates and Whey Protein at a 3:1 ratio immediately after 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 the 'glycogen storage' window of opportunity has passed. It is also proven beyond doubt, that Whey Protein is faster acting, more soluble and absorbed/synthesised more rapidly than any other protein source and thus it provides the amino acids necessary for muscular repair with little delay.
TORQ Recovery Bar offers versatility for snacking or prescribed use during exercise: As the TORQ Recovery Bar contains a strong dose of whey protein, it can be used casually as a snack during the day to maintain protein levels in the blood, to aid recovery and body maintenance. The natural fruit sugars and rice syrup contained within the bars will also provide carbohydrate to help re-stock vital glycogen stores. Consuming protein during exercise is generally not advised, because it slows down the delivery of carbohydrate, but there is a strong argument that on training camps and multi-day events where the endurance load is particularly high and repetitive, consuming some protein periodically (infrequently) can support long-term performance. Finding low fat sources of protein that can be absorbed quickly whilst exercising to avoid gastrointestinal distress/not interfere with fuelling strategies, is often very difficult. The TORQ Recovery Bar represents the perfect solution to this problem with its rapid absorption properties.
