Recently, I was raising money for Team Salute which is a charity for military members and their families. On my blog post promoting my fundraiser, I got a donation and blog comment from someone who’s brother was in the Marines for 4 years and was touched by my brother’s story. He and I got to talking and eventually I found out that that person works for a company called EnduroPacks, a nutrition company for endurance athletes. EnduroPacks provides runners and triathletes with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and recovery products to help keep athletes strong and healthy. I immediately was excited about this company and the opportunity to try out their products!
So what is EnduroPacks all about? Well, the company focuses on wholesome nutrition aimed at endurance athletes. Specifically, their products promote immune system health and hydration, reduce soreness and aid in recovery, and are all-natural/organic/vegetarian. What I love about EnduroPacks is their dedication to providing natural products that maximize performance of athletes.
I personally got to try out the 30-day daily micronutrient system. I was diligent with using the system as I increased my mileage in preparation for the Chicago Marathon which I ran a month or so ago–I figured training for a marathon was a perfect time to test out these products that are designed for endurance athletes. I think a marathon classifies as endurance, don’t you? 😉 What I found was that using the system resulted in increased energy and decreased muscle soreness/fatigue as my training went on which is what every endurance athlete hopes for. This gives the body an opportunity to not be stopped by muscle soreness and for us to be able to push ourselves to the next limit. Think “completing an Ironman” for you triathletes out there.
The 30-day micronutrient system offers natural, organic vitamins and minerals essential for hydration, muscle recovery, and a strong immune system–and all the products are in highly-absorbent formats. Here are some specific details about the individual components of the micronutrient system:
-High potency, fast absorbing liquid multi-vitamin and mineral formula.
-Provides the nutrients you need to maintain proper health and avoid injury during training.
-Iron-free, GMO-free, and 100% vegetarian formula.
-The flavor of this is great and doesn’t upset my belly like regular pill-form vitamins do. I took this without food and had no problems at all which I LOVE! Tastes great and is an easy way to take your vitamins
Essential Amino-Acid Patch:
-Transdermal adhesives provide convenient and effective absorption of aminos for athletes.
-Apply one patch daily to clean, dry skin on inner forearm or stomach post-workout for 4-8 hours.
-Facilitates muscle and tissue repair and lung function.
-Vegetarian-based formula of the essential amino acids.
-These really made a difference! My body recovered so much faster on days when I used these after a long/strenuous workout than days when I didn’t. Plus, they’re easy to use–just put one on and go!
Concentrated Electrolyte Spray:
-Concentrated liquid formula for fastest absorption.
-Convenient spray, add 10 sprays to 16oz of water or liquid of choice for hydration.
-Broad-based electrolyte formula promotes energy, blood flow, muscle contraction, and health during exercise.
-NO added sugar or artificial ingredients.
-You really should be rehydrating after a long workout with electrolytes–water alone isn’t enough to replenish (especially after summer workouts where you sweat a lot). Its SO easy to spray this into your drink to get what your body needs without all the sugar that’s in traditional electrolyte drinks.
L-Glutamine Recovery Complex
-Replenishing L-glutamine levels in your muscles reduces the likelihood of injury and fatigue.
-Helps replenish nitrogen lost from training, speeds recovery, and reduces muscle soreness.
-Take post workout for maximum recovery.
-This was SO effective for me and really made a difference in my overall recovery. When I started using this my recovery time significantly decreased and I was able to get back to my workouts sooner after long run days during the end of marathon training. This is a product I’ve looked for forever and finally found “the one!”. Love love love.
Also, each of the products are all-natural, organic, vegetarian, gluten-free and GMO-free products. They’re also all manufactured in the USA which you just can’t beat!
I found that EnduroPacks improved my athletic performance a noticeable amount and helped make my Chicago Marathon training much more positive and pleasant! I had much more energy to live my life on my long run days (before using this system I would spend my whole day in bed after a long run!) and was able to even work out the day after long runs which I was never able to do before. I really felt like it made a big difference for me and I am someone who can be critical of supplements!
