A dual-source carbohydrate, a blend of maltodextrin and low glycemic fructose gives you an immediate and sustained energy supply.

Bio available electrolytes drive effective fluid uptake and help maintain a cellular environment for proper muscle contraction.

A 7:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio with ultrapure whey protein isolate helps reduce muscle breakdown during the high demands placed on them and aid muscle recovery. This is defined as pre-recovery by Dr Heiss.

B Vitamins boost metabolism of carbohydrates into energy.

500% daily value of Vitamin C to scavenge cell-damaging free radicals during and after exercise.

This supplement provides increased performance and protection in one, it hydrates to reduce cramp, increase stamina and reduce recovery time.

Dual-source blend of carbohydrate.
Maltodextrin, a long chain of rapidly metabolized glucose units, is absorbed through one transporter. Fructose, a more slowly metabolized carbohydrate, is absorbed through a separate transporter. The combination of both carbohydrates provides immediate and sustained energy and facilitates caloric utilization, allowing athletes to sustain performance at a given effort for a longer period of time.

Why you need it?

Proper fuelling during exercise improves performance. The dual-source carbohydrate system in Prolong means more calories utilized per hour, increased glycogen conservation and faster recovery. Elevated electrolyte levels are critical to reduce cramping, maintain hydration and stabilize body temperature. And it’s all thanks to science.

Why Pre-Recovery?

Are you training and playing several times a week, and need to recover asap. Yet the recovery process can take over 24 hours? Many athletes separate the "during" nutrition with "recovery" nutrition. Dr Heiss maintains that you should start the recovery process with what you consume during exercise which speeds up the recovery time. That's why Prolong contains, electrolytes, carbohydrates and a small amount of protein.

'Prolong – I thought it would be difficult for the body to absorb such a nutritive drink, but it proved otherwise. It's great!' Rafeal Arroja, Portugal.

'Prolong has really been the big difference. Before I had gel, bars, bananas and a lot of things in my pockets, when I was racing. Now, Prolong gives me everything I need during the race. This helps me to concentrate and focus on the biking, and not think about when to eat and how'. Kjell Kirkeng, Norway.

'Wow I love 24! Started on it 10 days ago as part of my Triathlon nutrition programme in preparation for a half Ironman on 25th Sept. Last Saturday had F1 sport at 06:00 swam for an hour had Prolong at 08:00 then raced 5k at 09:00 set a PB and won my age group, what more can I say?! Ian Cyclist, UK
