The Truth of The Post-Workout Meal

Here are a few things that can be accomplished by having a post-workout shake or meal 15-45 minutes after your workout:

-Shift metabolic machinery from a catabolic state to an anabolic state.

-Speed up the elimination of metabolic wastes by increasing muscle blood flow.

-Replenish muscle glycogen stores.

-Initiate tissue repair and set the stage for muscle growth.

-Reduce muscle damage and bolster the immune system.
