Tasty and Effective – Set Meal to Support Regeneration

Product Information

Nutrition plays a particularly important role in regeneration. After an exhausting training, carbohydrate reserves are exhausted and should be refilled within two to three hours. In this time frame, musculature can absorb carbohydrates faster and more effectively. In order to reasonably fasten up the process of regeneration and support muscle strengthening, you should include foods in your diet that contain potassium, proteins and carbohydrates. We compiled a small meal which supports phases of regeneration.
