When it comes to diet and supplementation, it doesn’t get more essential than protein & carbs. For at least the last 50 years, we have known that replenishing carbohydrate during exercise improves performance, and protein has a critical role in exercise recovery and delaying fatigue. The drawback for aesthetic sports is fattening sugar and difficult-digesting whole protein, which is why I-Prevail created Rehab™, with low-impact Carb10™ and a full profile of EAAs plus ornithine and glutamine.
Carb10™ is an extremely low-glycemic pea starch with proven ability to improve power output.
4:1:1 iBCAA support muscle cell energy production and spare muscle proteins.
L-Ornithine helps recycle ammonia to reduce fatigue and improve endurance.
Pterostilbene augments blood flow and boosts nutrient delivery.
Rehab™ is an all-in-one intraworkout and recovery supplement. Use Rehab™ during exercise to extend time to exhaustion, increase muscular power, and prevent muscle catabolism.
Carb10 is a patented pea starch known to have nearly zero glycemic impact.
Increases muscle glycogen
Improves power output
Does not increase blood glucose or insulin
Ornithine is a non-proteogenic amino acid with a pronounced role in the urea cycle.
Ornithine helps clear ammonia, a metabolic byproduct that builds up during exercise.
Ammonia reduction is believed to be the primary mechanism by which Ornithine decreases exercise fatigue.
Ornithine also reduces perceived exertion during exercise, improving psychological exercise tolerance.
Leucine is one of the BCAAs. It has been demonstrated to be the only one of the 20 amino acids capable of independently stimulating protein synthesis.
Leucine activates mTOR – the mammalian Target of Rapamycin
mTOR augments rates of muscle protein synthesis and stimulation may enhance muscle growth and recovery.
The leucine concentration of proteins may be directly associated with muscle growth.
BCAAs are branched-chain amino acids, of which there are 3 – Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine.
The effects of BCAA include those of Leucine.
The BCAAs are more easily oxidized, which means they play a greater role in energy metabolism, especially during exercise.
The essential amino acids (EAA) must be obtained in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body, like the nonessential amino acids.
EAAs can be converted to nonessential amino acids when necessary to form complete proteins.
Gram-for-gram, EAA supplementation may be more effective than protein supplementation.
Using EAA between meals provides an anabolic boost with little to no caloric value.
Pterostilbene is a version of resveratrol with antioxidant and vasomodulating effects.
Improves blood flow and vasodilation
May reduce blood pressure
Helps with weight loss
Q: What is the best way to use Rehab?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix 1 serving (1 scoop), in 8-12oz of water and drink during exercise or during the day for exercise recovery. For athletes over 185 lbs, increase to 1.5 servings.
Q: Can I stack other products with Rehab?
A: Yes. For an effective pre- and intraworkout combination, stack Rehab with RougePW.
