Facts about Timing & Nutrition

Why should I have a shake when I workout?

When you workout, you burn calories and your body loses nutrients. These need to be replaced in order for you to recover from the exercise and repair your body. There are many specifics about nutrition that can affect your recovery, but the major components of nutrition (macros) are Proteins, carbohydrates and Fats. Drinking a shake before, during or after your workout allows you to pinpoint the ratios of the macros that your body is looking for at those times. Because the human body absorbs and utilizes the nutrition from a liquid much faster than from a solid (it is digested faster), a shake is an ideal vehicle for replacing those macronutrients.  Our all-natural shakes deliver not only the right blend of nutrients, but they taste great too!

Refuel & Recover Shakes: capitalizing on your opportunity for a complete workout

Exercise not only burns the sugar in your blood stream, but the glycogen (stored sugars) in your muscles as well. You have a window of approximately 30 minutes from the completion of your workout to replace the sugars your body consumed during that workout or you will actually start to deplete your own muscles. This is called a catabolic or “muscle wasting” state. Taking in fast-digesting carbs in a recovery shake prevents that depletion and keeps your body in an anabolic (muscle saving) state. Add Protein to repair or grow cells and you’ve completed your
workout.

100% Crushed Fruit & Veggie Fusion Shakes: 100% crushed fruit or vegetables blended to deliver taste and nutrient density

Our 100% Crushed Fruit & Veggie Shakes contain 5-9 servings of whole fruits and/or vegetables per 20 oz. beverage. As always, all of our shakes are free of artificial and synthetic ingredients.  So, they are a pure source of carbohydrates and other nutrients to serve as the base for PreWorkout fuel, Post-Workout recovery or as a tasty treat in-between meals. Pick your favorite flavor and know that it is a healthy nutritional choice anytime.

Meal Replacement Shakes: as a low-glycemic meal or after a blended workout of more than 60 minutes

The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how quickly blood sugar levels rise after eating a specific food. For optimum health and sustained energy, your diet should be comprised of 5-7 Low-Glycemic meals every day consisting of nutrient-dense carbs, lean proteins and healthy fats. Our Meal Replacement Shakes are perfect for the 5-7 meal-a-day plan. If you have completed a workout that is longer than 60 minutes or had a blend of aerobic and anaerobic exercise, your metabolism will stay “up” for longer, making the Meal Replacement shake a perfect solution.

Trim & Low-Cal Shakes: all of the goodness of our other shakes – just a bit lighter

Although calories are not always the enemy in the quest for personal fitness, we understand that sometimes you want/need to go a little bit lighter. Designed for the calorie-conscious, these shakes have all the nutrients available in our other shakes, just in smaller doses.  Maxing-out at 300 calories, the Trim & Low-Cal Shakes are not recommended for postworkout recovery (unless it was a very light workout). They are perfect for dieters, seniors,
or someone looking for a between-meal snack.

Kid’s Shakes: kids need good, solid nutrition all day long

Each of us started as just one cell. By the time we reach adulthood we are made up of 60-75 trillion cells. Children’s bodies are growing and creating new cells at an incredible rate, requiring quality nutrients to support that growth. Because it’s critical that every gram of food is nutrient-dense and bursting with all of the healthy Macro and Micronutrients that Mother Nature has to offer, our shakes are a natural blend of digestion-friendly carbs,  proteins, healthy fats and fiber. For breakfast, a lunchtime treat, dinner or a bedtime snack, our delicious and fun kids’ shakes take the worry out of nutrition and make everyone happy!
