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 fibres. We believe TORQ recovery to be the most thorough and effective formulation of its kind on the market today - yet we flavour it NATURALLY and use no colours 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.

It is generally accepted that consuming Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates and Whey Protein at a 3:1 ratio immediately after exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis (see fully referenced information below). In other words, it will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than consuming carbohydrate alone and/or waiting until 'glycogen storage' window of opportunity has passed. It is also generally accepted that Whey protein is faster acting, more soluable and absorbed/synthesised more any other kind of protein, thus it gives the amino acids necessary for muscle repair with little delay. TORQ recovery represents this 3:1 blend of Multiple Transportable Carbohydrates and high quality Whey Protein.

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 giving 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.

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.

Energy Drinks Guide

What are energy drinks?

Energy drinks either give you a much needed boost of power during your ride or help you recover quickly afterwards. They are simple to use – simply dissolve the powder with water to the required measurements and you’re ready to go. It’s handy to keep a bottle of energy drink on your bike during a long ride.

Who needs energy drinks?

If you’re riding over 4 hours, it’s definitely a good idea to try energy products. They are formulated to give you specific amounts of carbohydrates and protein, but also give you the urge to drink more, keeping you hydrated.

What are the choices?

Energy drinks come in a wide range of flavours, fruity, exotic or interesting. There are lots of brands to choose from, so it’s really a case of finding the one that works best for you and also tastes the nicest.

What should I buy with it?

A bottle and cage set-up for your bike is ideal for keeping your energy drink close at hand. It’s not advisable to use energy drinks in a hydration pack as the sugar content will make it incredibly difficult to clean. Most brands have accompanying bottles with the measurements already on the side, so you can mix your drink and put it straight on your bike.

Anything else?

Try any energy product out on practice rides in case it has an adverse effect on you or you find that you don’t like the taste.
