If you are over 35, you'll know that it takes longer to recover from hard training or racing than when we were younger. The body changes as we age and so does our need for recovery support. Elivar RECOVER has been optimised for athletes over 35, delivering 60% more protein than traditional recovery products and using a proprietary blend of Fast & Slow release proteins to deliver the building blocks of muscle repair over an extended period - as well as Low GI carbohydrates which provide sustained release energy replacement to support energy replacement without the sugar rush of High GI sugars. It's not surprising that 65% of people who tried RECOVER found they recovered better and with fewer aches than with their current recovery product. Time to switch and experience the difference for yourself. Elivar RECOVER is available in Strawberry or Chocolate flavour, as well as 900g Tubs or 65g Single Serve Sachets. Protein - Muscle loss is a known side effect of ageing and begins as early as your thirties. It gets harder to build and maintain muscle mass - an effect known as sarcopenia. At the same time, total body fat and visceral fat tend to increase. Weight bearing exercise is the only way to slow the onset of age-related muscle loss. It provides a natural stimulus to our muscles which can help slow the rate of decline but needs to be supported by adequate protein intake. Elivar can play an important part in supplying that protein and maintaining a balanced diet - after all, busy lives can leave you with a short fall. We don't all have time to cook a chicken breast or a steak after training. That's why Endure give you protein that includes vital branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Low GI Carbohydrate - As you get older you become more sensitive to changes in blood sugar. Ideally we should have stable blood sugar levels - insulin is released as part of the process of regulating our blood sugar. This is why, for example, people who suffer from diabetes need to monitor their blood sugar levels manually. Their system can't, or won't, release sufficient insulin. As we age we should avoid rapid rises in blood sugar levels, and the associated insulin spike, yet most sports nutrition energy products include high glycaemic index sugars, such as fructose or sucrose as the primary energy source carbohydrates. Elivar has developed formulations which deliver energy but avoid the traditional high glycaemic index sugars, fructose and sucrose. We use isomaltulose as our primary energy source. It's a low glycaemic index sugar which offers a slower, more controlled release of energy - delivering the energy you need, when you need it. Vitamins & Minerals - Regular intense training may mean you need more vitamins and minerals than someone who doesn't train. Ageing can accentuate this. Riboflavin, B6, B12, biotin and vitamin C are needed for energy metabolism, calcium and vitamin D for bone health, and B6 and B12 for the immune system. While the recommended way to get these is via a healthy and balanced diet, we understand that not everything in our busy lives is balanced - that's why Elivar products contain these essential, age-specific vitamins and minerals - supporting your sports performance goals and general health and wellness. About Elivar - The science is clear, the body's needs change as you get older, but you'd never know that from the sports nutrition products on the market. We couldn't find a single one designed for endurance athletes over 35. But why is that? If anything, your need for specialised nutrition increases with age. The plain fact is that your physiology (not to mention your work life balance) does change. It gets harder to maintain muscle mass, absorb and synthesize vitamins or maintain strong joints and bones. That's why it can take longer to recover after a hard session or you pick up more coughs and colds. Elivar products are specifically designed to help 35+ sports people achieve their goals. We understand people like that, because we are people like that. We participate in marathons, cycle sportives, triathlons and charity events as you probably do. We selected an expert team of world class nutritionists and food scientists to create products that really work. They give you energy when you need it, and recovery support to get you to the next training session in great shape. And long term, they'll help you maintain a healthy heart, bone stability and immune function. The Elivar range consists of three dilute-to-taste formulations for pre, during and post training. Prepare and Recover are available in Chocolate or Strawberry flavour and Endure in a choice of Orange & Mango or Watermelon flavour. All are available in 900 gram tubs and single serve sachets.
