Nutrisport Energy Boost 4:1 is a carbohydrate, protein mixture specifically designed for before and during your workout. It contains a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrate and protein, as well as electrolytes to help you maintain a well hydrated state during your training.
Normal protein and carbohydrate drinks contain either similar ratios of carbs to protein or a 2:1 ratio. While some protein is needed before and during your workout to help stop muscle breakdown, only a small amount needs to be present for this to occur. Having large amounts of protein slows the rate at which the stomach empties (gastric emptying) and therefore slows the supply of carbohydrate to your exercise. Therefore a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein (23:6g per serving) is ideal for stopping muscle breakdown but supplying carbohydrate to your workout. This may be especially relevant to those on low carbohydrate diet to help cut weight, as it is more likely they will need a good supply of carbohydrate to perform at their best during training.
Energy Boost also provides the key electrolytes (sodium and potassium), which are essential for proper hydration. Drinks containing electrolytes are MUCH more effective at helping you stay hydrated than just plain water.
