How RRUNN Post Works
After your activity, your muscles are sore, and your muscle glycogen and electrolyte levels are low. The muscle damage sustained during your run needs to be repaired and the body needs the nutrients to promote the building of new muscle. If you do not recover completely, you are more susceptible physical and mental damage, which negatively impacts your training and performance. The window of 20 minutes immediately after your activity is when your body is most susceptible to wear and tear, but also the most receptive to complete recovery. When the right nutrients are consumed within this crucial 20 minute window, the body is amenable to directing these nutrients towards recovery processes. RRUNN Post is a pioneering recovery brew with the right ratio of carbohydrates to protein, along with the electrolytes, amino acids, and an essential antioxidant necessary for muscle repair, muscle building, lowering fatigue, and eliminating cramping.
4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein
Sports nutrition research has proven time and again that the window of up to 20 minutes after intense exercise – the ‘golden window of opportunity’ – is when the body is most accepting of nutrients to recover from strenuous exercise. Evidence shows that when carbohydrates and protein – two of the most important macronutrients- are ingested in the ratio of 4:1, they are utilized in the most effective manner towards the body’s recovery. RRUNN Post delivers these macronutrients for recovery by combining Maltodextrin (a high GI carbohydrate) and plant-based pea protein in the 4:1 ratio. Consuming multiple food sources for recovery after exercise can cause stomach distress. Additionally, the nutrients in these foods cannot be broken down immediately by the body, which means that you risk losing out on the 20-minute window. RRUNN Post offers a concentrated, convenient source of all the nutrients you need for recovery, delivered to your body in a manner where they can be instantly broken down and utilized by the body.
RRUNN Post replenishes, rebuilds and restores
The carbohydrate in RRUNN Post stabilizes blood glucose levels and refuels the muscle glycogen lost during your endurance activity. This increase in muscle glycogen promotes the repair of muscle, and the development of new muscle tissue. RRUNN Post has plant-based pea protein, a source of the full-spectrum of branch chain amino-acids (BCAAs) necessary for production of new protein in the body. The body does not naturally store these amino acids and hence, RRUNN Post supplements your system with the fundamental building blocks it needs for protein synthesis, complete tissue repair and growth, and recovery. Additionally, pea protein is fully digestible, making it completely available to your body for building new muscle. Protein synthesis post-exercise is further promoted by L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, the amino acids in RRUNN Post. These amino acids increase the levels of growth hormone in the body, which creates an environment that is conducive for new muscle. After endurance activities, your immune system is vulnerable and temporarily impaired. In this state, L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine fortifies your immune system, and protects your body from opportunistic infections. RRUNN Post restores the levels of sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride lost to sweat during your activity. Hydration levels of the body can remain affected up to 48 hours after exercise, and these electrolytes play an important role in regulating hydration across cells and major organs. The vitamin C in RRUNN Post reduces muscle soreness and acts as a potent antioxidant, to bring relief from cramps, aches, and stiffness. Recovery is a big factor in determining performance and in preventing injury, which is why recovery nutrition should be a part of your overall fuelling strategy. RRUNN Post is all you need to carry with you after a big race or training session to ensure that you are ready and primed for the next big challenge.

The RRUNN System
RRUNN Post is part of the RRUNN system, along with RRUNN Pre– Instant and Sustained Energy and RRUNN During– Hydration & Endurance. The three formulations of RRUNN –Pre, During and Post– are each scientifically calibrated to supply carbohydrates, electrolytes, endurance, & recovery supplementation to address the physical, mental, and physiological requirements of an athlete during every stage of an endurance activity.You can also incorporate RRUNN Endurance Energy Gel and RRUNN Electrolyte Salt Caps into your regimen.
When performances peak, passions soar, recreational sports turn competitive, and athletes become professionals. With RRUNN, the wind is at your back.
Why do I need to consume RRUNN Post?
Post-run, your muscles are low on glycogen, and are vulnerable to damage and soreness. At this stage, your body is also depleted of electrolytes and hydration. If the body is not supplied with the proper recovery supplementation within 20 minutes of completing your activity, it is susceptible to injury, muscle damage and fatigue. RRUNN Post delivers carbohydrates and proteins in the critical 4:1 ratio within the ‘window of opportunity’ of 20 minutes after your activity. This replenishes your muscle glycogen, lowers free radical damage, and promotes the growth of new muscle tissue. The Vitamin C in RRUNN Post is an antioxidant that reduces muscle soreness. Key amino acids boost recovery and essential electrolytes rehydrate you. RRUNN Post is complete recovery supplementation that ensures you recover fully from your strenuous activity, resume training at your peak, and stay injury free.
Why is the 4:1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein in RRUNN Post important?
Several studies suggest that the ideal recovery supplementation should contain carbohydrates and proteins in the 4:1 ratio. The 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to proteins in RRUNN Post is scientifically proven to boost the levels of muscle glycogen, stimulate the growth of new muscle, reduce muscle damage, improve performance in subsequent exercises, and reduce the risk of injury.
Why does RRUNN Post only contain 10g of protein?
The 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to proteins is scientifically proven to ensure scientific recovery. Since RRUNN Post contains 44g of carbohydrates, the protein content of 10g ensures that the product is calibrated to deliver these nutrients to you in the crucial 4:1 ratio – making RRUNN Post an optimal recovery supplementation product.
Why do I need to consume RRUNN Post within 20 minutes of finishing my activity?
Research has shown that the 20 minute window after you finish your activity is when your body is most receptive to a complete recovery. It is within these 20 minutes that your muscles are the most primed to assimilate the nutrients that it needs to restore levels of glycogen, repair damaged tissue and build new muscle tissue. Consuming RRUNN Post within this 20 minute ‘window of opportunity’ ensures optimal, scientific recovery.
How much RRUNN Post should I consume after my activity?
For optimal recovery and best results consume 1 serving of RRUNN Post. Ideally you should consume RRUNN Post immediately after your workout or within 20 minutes.

Yes. RRUNN Post has Vitamin C which is a potent antioxidant that reduces muscle soreness.
Will RRUNN Post help with muscle repair and growth?
Yes. RRUNN Post has vegan Pea protein which supplies the full profile of amino acids that your body needs to build new muscle tissue. When taken within the 20 minute window after your activity, RRUNN Post helps reduce muscle damage and promotes the growth of new muscle tissue.
Does RRUNN Post contain Whey protein?
No. Whey protein is derived from an animal source. RRUNN Post is a vegan product, which means it does not contain any ingredients of animal origin. The protein used in RRUNN Post plant-based extracted from yellow peas.

Should I consume all RRUNN products together or can I consume them separately?
The three formulations of RRUNN – Pre, During and Post – have been designed as a system to support you from the start to the finish of your endurance activity. The RRUNN products are specifically designed to meet the different needs of your body at the different stages of your activity. We recommend that you consume them together, so you get optimal results from the RRUNN system. You can always tailor the intake of these products, depending on your activity. For e.g. for activities of shorter durations or lesser intensity like a 5k race, you may feel that RRUNN Pre alone covers your hydration needs.
