The Fuel You Need for Endurance Racing

EnduroMax was developed for the athlete participating in strenuous and prolonged exercise lasting for 1 to 2 hours and longer. EnduroMax is based on scientific evidence and modeled after the newest American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) guidelines for fluid and electrolyte replacement during exercise. There is nothing like it on the market. EnduroMax was formulated to support critical biochemical and physiological demands of prolonged exercise by providing the necessary fluid, energy fuel, electrolytes, amino acids, metabolic cofactors and antioxidants your body needs during exercise to support optimal performance.

During exercise, your body can lose up to 2 liters (4.4 pounds) of water through sweat per hour under extreme conditions such as high temperatures, high humidity, bright sun and exercise intensity. Loss of body water, called dehydration, leads to a decrease in athletic performance especially in older individuals (ages 65 years and older). The thirst mechanism is in delayed response mode and thirsty athletes can already be significantly dehydrated. The goal is not to incur body weight losses of greater than 2 percent. Greater than 2 percent weight loss from sweat can result in significant physiological changes to the body including inhibited thirst mechanism, weakness, muscle cramps and other signs and symptoms affecting exercise performance.

EnduroMax gives you the fuel you need for endurance exercise by providing multi-molecular weight carbohydrates including maltodextrin, sucrose and dextrose (glucose) in the recommended ratios. Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer and has the highest molecular weight of the carbohydrate ingredients. Maltodextrin is an easily digested short chain of 3 to 20 glucose units in length and a convenient source of intermediate energy. Both sucrose and dextrose provides sources of rapid energy to spare glycogen and delay fatigue.

EnduroMax contains L-glutamine and the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-leucine, L-valine and L-isoleucine. L-Glutamine supports muscle recovery and functions as an anti-catabolic amino acid. BCAAs help maintain a positive nitrogen balance, provide an additional fuel source for high intensity exercise and enhance recovery.

EnduroMax contains energizing cofactors like quercetin, N-acetyl cysteine, alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10 and L-carnitine to maintain energy production in the cell mitochondria and promote efficient fat metabolism. Caffeine (75 mg per serving) has been added as a proven energy ergogenic and further aids in supporting fat utilization during prolonged exercise. Vitamin C has been included to protect muscles from free radicals that may be generated during exercise and to enhance tissue recovery. EnduroMax also provides ALL of the essential electrolytes including sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium that may be lost during exercise.

Make sure to mix EnduroMax, in its quick-dissolving and refreshing flavor, in a clean shaker cup or water bottle. Ideally, mix it up just before use and keep it as cold as possible. EnduroMax provides exactly what you need during endurance exercise, nothing more and nothing less. It’s the ultimate endurance supplement.
