In a long run such as an ultramarathon, 5 to 9% of the total energy needed comes from amino acids, especially those in the branched chain family. The reduced concentration of those in the blood gives rise to mental fatigue and loss of concentration after many hours of exercise.
If amino acids are not taken during the event, they are scavenged from the athlete's own muscle. SUCCEED! CLIP contains branched chain and other amino acids for
How to Use it:
When running for a long time, it is necessary to have a steady supply of energy drink. That implies carrying a bottle so you can drink between aid stations or water stops.
The serving size is intended to be used in the standard 20 or 26 ounce bottle. Put 3.5 scoops of powder in a bottle. Fill the bottle with water and put the top back on and shake. The contents will mix in a few minutes.
Bags of CLIP can be carried in pockets or a pack, or put in drop bags along your route.
Solutions of proteins can spoil. Mix only in clean containers and refrigerate unused portions. If you have small portions of the mix left after an event, drink it to help your recovery. Wash bottles thoroughly after use.
CLIP does not contain significant amounts of electrolytes that are needed during hours of exercise. When using CLIP during exercise, you should supply sodium containing foods or supplements. SUCCEED! Buffer/Electrolyte Caps will provide the necessary electrolytes. If such a product is not available to you during exercise, use a substitute such as table salt or salt tablets.
