Advanced Fuel designed CARBURATE POST to boost maximum recovery and promote quick energy restoration after any physical activity. CARBURATE POST contains 40% proteins and 60% carbohydrates. These percentages are the optimal rate to speed up muscle recovery while increasing glycogen and muscle protein that are essential to maximum tissue repair.
The protein dense formula is the highest on the market surpassing all comparables in its category. Carburate Post also contains 6g of BCAA per serving which promote decreasing catabolism of vitamins and minerals vital to a healthy functioning body, as well as medium chain triglycerides oil (MCT) which provides higher post training energy.
Although medium chain triglycerides is a family of healthy fats which is hard to store as body fat, they can be valuable to athletes looking for a pure energy source.
Relatively unknown by the general public, this energy source is used by many high level athletes during intense training without altering body fat percentages.
Add 1 to 2 servings of Carburate Post to 300 ml water or milk as desired. Shake well until solution is well diluted.

Created for athletes to refuel after demanding activity, GU Recovery Drink packs energy-dense whey protein isolate to promote protein synthesis and reduce muscle-protein breakdown. The carbohydrate, dextrose, helps replenish glycogen stores and also play a role in inhibiting exercise-stimulated muscle-protein breakdown. The amino acid arginine (1400mg) is the rate-limiting amino acid in nitric oxide production, which can potentially increase vasodilation and improve oxygen transport. The amino acid glutamine (2800mg) helps promote proper immune function. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in rehydration by maintaining water balance.
What type of protein is in GU Recovery Drink Mix?
The protein used in the Recovery Drink Mix is Whey Protein Isolate. It is derived from dairy and is more pure than other forms (about 90% pure protein). It also has the highest BV (Biological Value), which is the measure of how efficiently food protein, once absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, can be turned into body tissues.
When should I consumer GU Recovery Drink Mix?
We recommend consuming Recovery Drink Mix within 1-3 hours (glycogen repletion window) after exercising.
Can I mix GU Recovery Drink Mix with milk?
Yes, milk can be mixed with Recovery Drink Mix. The combination of milk and Recovery Drink Mix can help increase glycogen stores by adding extra carbohydrates and protein.
Why do I need a recovery beverage?
GU Recovery Drink Mix is very important for athletes because the combination of both carbohydrate and protein help decrease catabolic affects post exercise and increase anabolic affects needed for subsequent training.
Can I use GU Recovery Drink Mix during exercise?
Recovery Drink Mix was formulated to aid recovery after exercising. However, some of our athletes have been successful when using Recovery Drink Mix during exercise. It is made up of mostly carbohydrates but also contains whey protein which is more easily digestible than most proteins. Note that the caloric content is much higher (250cal per 16 fl. oz. of water) and this can increase stomach bulk. We recommend practicing with this concept before using it on race day.
Why does the product contain Arginine?
Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that, when consumed, spare the need to use an essential amino acid for their synthesis. Arginine is glycogenic in that it can be converted into glucose. It can also be broken down by various metabolic processes to produce energy. It has even been shown to aid the body in growth hormone secretion. Growth hormone has been shown to: increase muscle mass, promote lypolisis, increase protein synthesis, strengthen the immune system, and promote glucogenesis.
Why does the product contain Glutamine?
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that, when consumed, spare the need to use an essential amino acid for their synthesis. During intense aerobic and anaerobic activity the immune system can become weakened. Glutamine can help promote a healthy immune system. About 60% of plasma glutamine levels come from using other amino acids and carbon intermediates located in the muscle. Intake of dietary glutamine can help maintain these levels. It can also help reduce the effects caused by overtraining in athletes.
Have you addressed the poor mixing qualities of recovery drinks in general?
Yes, we have reformulated the Recovery Drink Mix with a new carbohydrate that dissolves quicker and prevents clumping.
