After your endurance activity, your muscles are sore, and your muscle glycogen and electrolyte levels are low. The muscle damage sustained during your activity 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, BCAAs, vitamin C, KSM-66™ and curcumin extract 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 Dextrose & Maltodextrin (high GI carbohydrates) and plant-based pea protein isolate 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.
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.
Muscle growth and overall system recovery is aided by KSM-66™ – the most extensively studied Ashwagandha extract on the market. Clinically, it has been found that KSM-66™ produces 98.9% reduction in post exercise build up of serum creatine kinase levels indicating less degree of muscle damage. Thus, helping athletes recover after workingout and during continuous activity repetition. Athletes have also observed increased cardiorespiratory endurance, improved max resistance load and muscle recovery, while also offering stress relief benefits.
The vitamin C in RRUNN™ Post reduces muscle soreness and acts as a potent antioxidant, to bring relief from cramps, aches, and stiffness.
Curcumin extract is a potent and well-known anti-inflammatory. It curbs post exercise muscle damage and inflammation.
Recovery is a big factor in determining performance and in preventing injury, which is why recovery nutrition should be a part of your overall fueling 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, essential electrolytes rehydrate you, clinically proven KSM-66™ aids athletic performance and boosts recovery, curcumin extract helps reduce body inflammation.
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.
How much protein is in RRUNN™ Post?
RRUNN™ Post contains 40g 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 at 1 serving of RRUNN™ Post.
We also recommend that you use LEAN Pea Protein Isolate in conjunction with RRUNN™ Post. Ideally you should consume RRUNN™ Post immediately after your workout or within 20 minutes and within 45 minutes of your workout you consume 1 serving of LEAN or you can opt to consume Lean Pea Protein Isolate at night before going to bed.
