Natures Path Organic Optimum ReBound Cereal, Banana-Flax-Almond, Matcha Green Tea

USDA Organic. 10 g Protein. Introducing Recovery Nutrition: It's about replenishing your body from whole foods. Refueling Muscles: Exercising muscles are fuelled by carbohydrates that are stored in muscle tissue as glycogen. Muscle glycogen becomes depleted after exercise and must be replenished. When carbohydrates are consumed within sixty minutes after a workout, the glycogen-producing enzymes will rapidly replace depleted glycogen supplies. Good post-exercise recovery nutrition replaces muscle glycogen stores and ensures performance readiness for future exercise needs. Optimum ReBound supplies your muscles with 35g of complex carbohydrates per 55g serving. Serious Food for Recovery from Serious Workout: Nature's Path introduces Recovery Nutrition in a delicious new cereal Because strenuous exercise puts stress on your body, your body needs a healthy source of recovery nutrition to rebuild muscle and replenish essential carbohydrates & protein. Optimum ReBound cereal is a unique blend of protein, carbohydrates and fiber that provides whole food nutrition for daily post-exercise recovery. We've combined organic bananas, almonds, raisins, flax, and soy with Matcha green tea into a cereal that tastes so good you'll want to eat it everyday. Repairing Muscle Damage: Research indicates that people leading an active lifestyle need additional protein to reduce post-exercise muscle damage, promote recovery and increase strength. In fact, unless a protein containing meal is consumed during the recovery period, post-exercise muscle breakdown may exceed synthesis, resulting in a loss of muscle mass2 and a longer time to full recovery. Optimum ReBound contains organic soy protein, a high quality complete protein, and provides you with 10g per 55g serving - an excellent source for this essential post-exercise nutrient. The Case for Whole Food Nutrition: Nutrition can't be optimized simply through fortification or supplementation of the food supply. Wise food choices and a variety of food intake are essential to provide the necessary foundation of an optimal diet. Optimum ReBound combines organic whole grain goodness with wholesome whole food ingredients to give you a balanced, functional and nutritious way to manage daily and post-exercise recovery without pills or supplements.
