You should re-hydrate promptly after you finish an event. Along with water, you should have some carbohydrate and easily digestible protein. A good protocol is to follow your event with a SUCCEED! Buffer/Electrolyte Cap, 20 ounces of SUCCEED! CLIP, and as much water as you like.
An hour or two later you should have a good meal. There is often considerable muscle fiber damage from an event, so you should eat a generous amount of protein food as a part of this meal. If you normally take vitamins with your meals, do so at this one.
It is very important to understand that much of your body's repair is done while you sleep. About an hour after falling asleep, you get a natural pulse of growth hormone that drives repair of damaged tissues. You can help your body in this process by providing nutrients and supplements which assist tissue repair.
SUCCEED! RECOVERY SUPPLEMENTS are selected to provide those in a simple package.
For repair of connective tissue, there's glucosamine sulfate, the amino acids glycine and lysine, and vitamin C in a buffered form that is easy on your stomach while you sleep. Chrome picolinate enhances the action of insulin which helps transport nutrients into body cells. Ornithine alpha Ketoglutarate is a unique combination of amino acids which increase the body's output of growth hormone, and help nourish the body's immune system. Vitamins C and E provide anti-oxidant protection against free radicals which are prevalent after exercise.
