- Put all the ingredients to a blender and blend until a smooth consistency is achieved.

- Tip: You may choose to take your drink in two parts – half immediately after training and half more or less one hour later. This will help to heighten the duration and bioavailability of the nutrients.
- Facts: Drinking recovery drink reduces urine during exercise. Urine is your body’s way to remove wastes and control extracellular to intracellular fluid balance. It contains urea, chloride, sodium, potassium, creatine and toxins. During exercise, urine production is reduced by the body’s ability to conserve fluid for thermoregulation, or sweating. However, it is possible to over-consume fluids and result in the need to void during exercise. While is it important to stay hydrated during your exercise, it is unsuitable to need multiple bathroom breaks. Recovery drinks that supply sodium and glycerol may cut down urine output by increasing the body’s power to retain fluid. Nevertheless, little scientific data exists that makes out between the effects of consumption before and during exercise on urine results. Consuming it alone before exercise is improbable to yield measurable decrease since respiratory and sweat loss vary greatly on environmental factors. Experiment with the amount and timing to personalize for best results. When in doubt considering your hydration and urine output, ensure with your health care providers or consult a sports dietitian.
- Facts: Drinking recovery drink keeps you hydrated. The quantity of fluid loss reckons on your genetics, muscle mass and exercise duration, as well as the close temperature and humidity. Generally, take 10 to 20 ounces two hours before, 10 to 15 ounces 20 minutes before and 4 to 8 ounces every 20 minutes during exercise. Take a bathroom break before exercising.
