Why choose Après

TRAINING & RECOVERY are necessary for adaptation and progress within any successful training programme. One of the most effective things you can do to aid recovery is to ritually include nutrition containing carbohydrates and protein within the first 20 - 30 mins after your physical activity.

 

In trials, athletes given a beverage containing both carbohydrates and protein after strenuous exercise showed a 55% greater time to exhaustion during subsequent exercise compared to athletes given a standard 6% carbohydrate-electrolyte sports beverage. (1) APRÈS contains the optimal ratio of CHO to protein for fast energy recovery and is a comforting end to your workout.
 
HYDRATION The need to rehydrate post-exercise is well documented. Your body regulates its temperature by sweating. As well as water, sweat contains mineral salts known as electrolytes - sodium, potassium ,calcium, magnesium and chloride - which regulate fluid balance and muscle contraction. Low fluid and electrolyte levels lead to dehydration, reduced performance and cramp, which is why we've included all essential electrolytes within APRÈS.
 
Studies have also shown that milk-based drinks can help you re-hydrate quicker than a commercial sports drink or water, as slower absorption rates and natural electrolytes present in milk help the body to re-hydrate more effectively. A milk-based drink, APRÈS offers the alternative of a hot drink, when a cold one just won't do.
 
THE MOJO OF COCOA (& BENEFITS OF BARLEY) ...Après is made with high quality organic cocoa and also malted barley - studies By Dr Chang Y Lee at Cornell Uni (3 ) show that there are upto 3 times more antioxidants in a serving of cocoa than in green tea and twice that of red wine whilst others indicate benefits to cardiovascular health (4)
 
Malted barley also has antioxidative properties and has been shown to aid circulation & reduce cholestrol  Lactic acid build up is like a rust which antioxidants help to remove, which is why APRÈS has been fortified with antioxidative vitamins as well as B vitamins for cardiovascular health.

 

Make APRÈS part of your training ritual... REWARD YOURSELF!
