1. Coffee reduces the amount of pain you perceive, and Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides helps provide sustenance DURING rigorous training.
Research published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (2009), states caffeine in a cup of coffee can reduce the amount of pain perceived by low to moderate caffeine consumers if taken before exercise. There is a significant amount of research that implies that athletes may benefit from a cup of coffee before a big game. For those of you that might be thinking of a 24oz coffee, a “cup” is precisely that: 8 ounces which happens to be the serving size of one CUP-O Protein pod.
2. Coffee also reduces perceived pain AFTER exercise, and CUP-O’s premium protein helps rebuild muscle tissue.
The Journal of Pain (Feb 2007) stated that research suggests that moderate doses of caffeine (approximately two cups of coffee) can reduce post-exercise soreness by up to 48%. The study examined the effects of caffeine on a group of nine female college students who were neither regular caffeine users nor regularly physically active. The subjects participated in a moderate workout. Then, one or two days later, they took either a caffeine pill or a placebo and an hour later performed quadriceps exercises - first to produce maximal force, then to produce sub-maximal force. Compared to the placebo subjects, those who got the caffeine reported a 48% reduction in pain in the max effort exercise and a 26% reduction in pain in the sub-maximal effort exercise.
If you are a next day, or second-day sore athlete, then CUP-O Protein Infused Coffee™ might be an easy way to reduce soreness after your first few training sessions.
3. CUP-O Protein Infused Coffee™ helps you recharge.
You have been programmed to go for a cold protein shake after a workout, but for the first time, you can choose a hot protein coffee that provides 8 grams of super-premium hydrolyzed collagen peptides that are 95% bio-available to your body. Cold protein requires an hour to denature in your stomach but our Protein Coffee quickly delivers a dose of protein into your bloodstream immediately effecting your performance and ultimately your recovery. According to research published in the Journal Of Applied Physiology (2008), “Athletes who ingested coffee after exercise had approximately 66 percent more muscle glycogen than those who ingested a placebo four hours after exercise.”
