BENEFITS:

“Sports drinks” are a dime a dozen. But most are the same—just sugar, salt and citric acid. That’s why we made HEED—the healthy alternative. HEED offers complex carbohydrates, a balanced electrolyte profile, and essential nutrients to balance blood sugar, buffer lactic acid, and ensure long-lasting energy.

HEED’s subtle flavor goes down easily, and the absence of citric acid prevents gastric upset and tooth decay. The healthful sweetener xylitol promotes oral health.

Use the only sports drink alternative, and experience the difference. HEED is what you need.

INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN:

Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.

Xylitol – This natural sweetener is found in a variety of fibrous fruits and vegetables. It promotes oral health, as it does not ferment and support the acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay. NOTE: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any xylitol-containing products, including HEED or Recoverite.

Full-spectrum electrolyte profile – The complete profile of sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps maintain performance of many important bodily functions during exercise, while also helping protect against muscle cramping.

L-Carnosine – One of the most versatile and beneficial nutrients available. It buffers lactic acid during exercise and offers antioxidant support.

Glycine – This amino acid is beneficial for aiding with muscle tissue repair, protecting collagen in joints, and reducing joint pain. Additionally, glycine has a naturally sweet taste, contributing to Recoverite’s delicious flavor.

L-Tyrosine – Aids in the functioning of the adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid glands, which are responsible for the production and regulation of numerous key hormones. This contributes to increased performance levels and decreased recovery time.

Manganese – This trace mineral is necessary for optimal muscle cell enzyme reactions and for the conversion of fatty acids and protein into energy.

Chromemate® brand chromium polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.

Application
HEED may be used as the sole fuel during exercise lasting up to two hours, fulfilling all of your calorie and fluid requirements and most-to-all of your electrolyte needs.

 

Serving Size
One scoop of HEED contains 100 calories.

 

Suggested Doses by Body Weight*:

WEIGHT SCOOPS CALORIES
Up to 90 lbs
(Up to 41 kg)
0.5-1 serving/hr 50-100 calories
90-120 lbs
(41-54.5 kg)
0.75-1.5 scoops/hr 75-150 calories
120-155 lbs
(54.5-70 kg)
1-1.5 scoops/hr 100-150 calories
155-190 lbs
(70-86 kg)
1.5-2 scoops/hr 150-200 calories
190+ lbs 
(86+ kg)
2-2.25 scoops/hr 200-225 calories

*These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum.

If using more than one fuel, be sure to combine all of the calories from all of the products consumed to reach a correct total hourly intake.


Mixing / Usage Instructions

Mix 0.5-2.25 scoops (see chart above) of HEED in 16-28 ounces (approx 475-828 ml) of water. Sip continuously during exercise.

 

Notes

When training sessions or races go much longer than two hours, select either Perpetuem or Sustained Energy as your primary fuel source. In these instances, HEED can still be used intermittently for variety as long as your total hourly caloric intake does not exceed your trainingdetermined maximum.

 

Each scoop of HEED contains the equivalent amount of electrolytes as one Endurolytes capsule, one scoop of Endurolytes Powder, or one-half tablet of Endurolytes Fizz. For many athletes, under normal conditions, one or two scoops of HEED will completely fulfill electrolyte requirements. When heat stress increases significantly, you will need to consume additional Endurolytes.

 

Please Note: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any products that contain xylitol, nor any products that are made for human consumption. More information.
