Sports Nutrition Meets Shaklee Science
Extensive research has shown the benefits of caffeine on improved physical performance. L-theanine, found almost exclusively in tea, and L-tyrosine are two amino acids that have been studied for their effects on mental performance and focus. Some of the many well documented benefits of consuming the ingredients in Shaklee Energy include increased energy, mental clarity, alertness, and focus.*
Hardworking muscles need carbohydrates. The harder and longer you work out, the more your body needs to replenish carbohydrates to generate energy. Carbohydrates should make up at least 50% of an athlete’s calories during and after athletic events.
Dehydration is the number one source of decreased performancein trained athletes. Because dehydration can compromise athletic performance, athletes should strive for optimal hydration levels before, during, and after exercise. Drinking small amounts of cool liquids early and often during exercise is recommended. Shaklee Performance is clinically proven to hydrate better than water and to significantly increase endurance.
Electrolytes are minerals that control fluid balance, blood volume, heart rate, and body temperature. Electrolytes help balance the need for fluids with thirst to properly hydrate athletes. The oPTILYTE™ blend in Performance contains six electrolytes to support optimal hydration; the leading brand contains only four electrolytes.
Shaklee Performance® and Shaklee Physique® are both excellent sources of carbohydrates.
Muscles are made of protein. Athletes need to consume highquality, easy-to-digest protein to help repair, rebuild, and build new muscle mass in response to exercise. Extremely high intakes of protein are not necessary to increase muscle growth or performance. Physique provides the right ratio of proteins to carbohydrates and is clinically proven to stimulate an anabolic state that promotes muscle growth and energy recovery after a workout.
