Nutrex PostLIFT, one of my favorite supplements overall. It's a staple in my rotation since it came out. A combination of fast acting carbs, Branched Chain Amino Acids, Electrolytes, and other ingredients that aid in recovery. 

Lets Start with the carbohydrates, Nutrex started with 25 grams of Cluster Dextrin (Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin). A very fast acting carbohydrate Cluster Dextrin is effective at replenishing glycogen stores that have been depleted during exercise. This helps recovery by accelerating the early stages of the repair process. After a workout the lack of glucose in the muscles can result in fatigue, supplementing a fast acting carb can alleviate this feeling. 

The next biggest ingredient, or group of ingredients, is the BCAA blend. A 10g dose at a 2:1:1 ratio of amino's is a HUGE amount of BCAA's. Most dedicated BCAA supplements don't even have that amount. Including that amount of BCAA's really sets the base for the great recovery aid this product provides. Combining those amino acids with 5g of Glutamine, which has been shown to reduce inflammation as well as boost immunity and increase hydration, makes for an incredible blend.

The list of powerful ingredients continues with 2.5g of Betaine Anhydrous, 2g of HICA, and 2g of Taurine. Betaine has shown great results in terms of improving physical performance and endurance. HICA (alpha-hydroxyisocaproic acid) is a metabolite of Leucine it helps prevent the buildup of lactic acid buildup, as well as the building of lean muscle. Taurine is another amino acid that is attributed to increasing athletic endurance, as well as providing mental focus. These 3 ingredients really help during the workout by allowing you to train harder, for longer. 

There is also a very high quality electrolyte blend included in PostLIFT. The combination of Calci-K Calcium, Phosphorus, and Potassium, with quality magnesium and sodium will help to re-hydrate after a demanding workout. Calci-K is a branded form of mineral that is one of the highest quality in terms of absorption that you can get. Nutrex's decision to use these high quality (expensive) ingredients speaks to the quality of product they're delivering with PostLift. 

Even though it's labeled as a "Post Workout" supplement, I love PostLIFT as a Pre and an Intra workout supplement too. I feel as though the quick carbs before and during my workout really give me great pumps, and help me get longer, stronger workout. Don't let the name dissuade you, give PostLIFT a shot the next time you need a new BCAA supplement.
