Robert Tyzbir, Ph.D., is a former Chairman of the Department of Nutrition and Life Sciences at the University of Vermont and a leading expert in the field of Sports Nutrition. He is the author of Sports Nutrition, the definitive academic textbook on the subject. His belief is that competitive athletes, whether they are amateur or professional, excel best by optimizing both performance and recovery. Dr. Tyzbir has spent his career working with athletes to find the best way to promote these goals. EPIC H2O is the result of his life's work.
THE SPORTS DRINK MARKET IS fueled WITH FRUCTOSE.
Dr. Tyzbir's belief is that any sports drink should increase the concentration of water, electrolytes, and glucose in the body as quickly as possible during training or competition. “Solutions containing glucose produce positive effects on performance and physiological function, far greater than drinks containing fructose, sugar, or high fructose corn syrup.” Unfortunately for most athletes, the sports drink market is saturated with fructose. Or worse, high fructose corn syrup. Rather than boosting your performance, these beverages force your body to burn energy unnecessarily. Made with glucose, EPIC H2O doesn't weigh down your metabolism. It lets your body put energy into the muscles that need it during events and training.
PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY ARE THE TWIN GOALS OF ANY COMPETITIVE ATHLETE.
As you push your body through workouts, training, and events, you're muscles are breaking down. The recovery process requires time and protein. Branched amino acids are the protein building blocks your body needs to rebuild muscle and recuperate after demanding workouts. The EPIC formula is packed with a laboratory-tested, optimum blend of the branched amino acids your muscles need to get back to their best. It helps you recover more quickly and get back into top gear to train sooner.
