Torq Nutrition gives all types of riders several options for sports nutrition, including post-ride recuperation. Torq comes in the form of Bars, Energy drink mixes, Gels and Recovery drink mixes. The flavours and ingredients come from natural sources, including elements that naturally occur in our own bodies. A broad spectrum of flavours is a Torq Nutrition hallmark, so riders can fuel their performance and replace lost energy without leaving a bad taste in their mouths or an ache in their bellies.
Torq Bars come in five flavours, Tangy Apricot, Sundried Banana, Raspberry & Apple, Pineapple & Ginger, and Organic Mango (certified by the Soil Association organic standard). The Bars are moist and chewy with abundant flavour, just like any other real food. Made with fairly traded fruit, they're suitable for vegans, too!
Torq Gels are a 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose energy mix optimised for releasing the carbohydrates within. No artificial colours or sweeteners, just natural pure flavours such as Strawberry Yoghurt, Black Cherry Yoghurt, Orange & Banana, Forest Fruits (with Guarana) and Banoffee (like the famous banana and toffee pie, but the gel comes with Guarana). "What the heck is guarana?", you ask. Guarana is a caffeine-containing extract, but unlike coffee or other caffeine supplements it's gentle on your stomach. The Gels with Guarana pack a potent 89mg of caffeine so you can skip the double espresso! Torq Gels are a suitable energy source for anyone, even vegans!
Torq Energy drink mix maintains the philosophy of Torq Nutrition, that is to say you won't find any artificial ingredients, flavourings, sweeteners or preservatives. Like the Gels, Torq Energy contains the same 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose ratio for optimal carbohydrate release. Also included are five (5) electrolytes. Easy on the stomach, full flavour on the palate including Natural Pink Grapefruit, Natural Lime & Lemon, Natural Orange, Natural Lemon and Natural Vanilla Pod. There is also the Organic variety which contains no electrolytes or flavour and is perfect for Carb Loading before that big event. Torq Energy comes in single sachets that are refillable from either of two larger sized containers, 500 grams or 1.5 kilograms. Suitable for Vegans, Torq Energy is also dairy-free, wheat-free and nut-free.
Torq Recovery comes in flavours that our bodies crave post-ride, mouthwatering Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Orange, Banana & Mango, and Strawberries & Cream. Recovery is a 3:1 Carbohydrate:Protein ratio that is supported by research to be optimal in replenishing the body's depleted energy stores post ride. It's all natural, including ingredients founds within our own bodies, however Recovery isn't suitable for Vegans though Vegetarians may feel free to consume it. Recovery contains Whey Protein, D-Ribose, HMB ad L-Glutamine to help with growth and repair.
Whey Protein is the most bio-available protein.
D-Ribose is a simple sugar (a monosaccharide) that aids metabolism.
HMB (Beta-hydroxy-Beta-methylbutyrate) is a naturally-occuring metabolite synthesized in the human body to block the breakdown of muscle, thus preserving muscle mass.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid the body manufactures itself and is used by the brain, intestines, kidneys, lungs and immune system. However, during hard exercise the body will break down muscle tissue to supply L-Glutamine. Supplementary supplies of this amino acid given immediately after exercise helps prevent muscle depletion and boosts the immune system.
Pure L-Glutamine, Carnitine and Ribose!
Torq also offers L-Glutamine, Carnitine and Ribose on its own, so you may add them to your favourite post-ride snacks or drinks. Carnitine increases fat burning, prolongs endurance and increases aerobic power. L-Carnitine is formed in the body from several amino-acids and can be found in meat (*particularly red meat) and dairy products. Ribose has been found to not only enhance recovery, but also may be useful as therapy for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as M.E., Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Encephalopathy).
