Reflex The Edge 1.5kg
The Edge® is the most comprehensively formulated and advanced energy drink available on the market today. Unlike caffeine and sugar-loaded energy drinks that are pre-made and available on the high street, The Edge® is designed to replace fluids and minerals lost during exercise and can be mixed as either:
- Hypotonic (typically containing less than 4g of carbohydrate per 100ml)
- Isotonic (typically containing between 4-8g of carbohydrate per 100ml)
- Hypertonic (typically containing more than 8g of carbohydrate per 100ml)
Most energy drinks are limited in the energy they provide, but Reflex’s The Edge® energy formula provides up to 30% more energy than other brands without just giving a sugar high. Add to this two zesty fruit flavours, and an easy-to-mix usability, and we believe our energy drink really does have the edge.
The most comprehensively formulated and advanced energy formula available on the market today.
Taking full advantage of a culmination of recent scientific findings, The Edge® literally gives sports people the edge in their chosen endurance sport. During strenuous sporting activity the body is subject to large energy demands, dehydration, muscle damage, free radical damage and reduced immunity. Some energy drinks address some of these problems but few get close to addressing all of the demands placed on the body. The Edge® covers every angle:
HyperCarbsTM in The Edge
The Edge® contains a precise combination of glucose polymers and pure crystalline fructose. It is an established fact that most energy drinks are limited in their ability to provide energy to the body; glucose polymers alone can only deliver a maximum of 1g of sugars per minute. However, the combination of glucose polymers and fructose has been scientifically proven to supply an extra 30% energy compared to just glucose polymers alone. Statistically speaking this could make an enormous difference to athletes during competition, in fact it could be the difference between winning or losing.
ClearProTM in The Edge
Crystal clear, ultra pure whey protein isolate is in The Edge®. This provides a secondary source of energy as well as a source of branch chain amino acids to help prevent muscle breakdown and speed recovery after exercise.
PlasmaMaxTM only in The Edge®.
Most energy drinks only replace sodium and potassium minerals, The Edge® goes much further. When the body sweats, it loses minerals which can have a negative effect on performance; most notably magnesium, a mineral that plays a vital role in muscle function. The Edge® contains the exclusive PlasmaMaxTM mineral and electrolyte complex which replaces numerous vital minerals, trace minerals and electrolytes. PlasmaMaxTM is exclusive to Reflex Nutrition and The Edge®.
AOC ingredient technology only in The Edge
It is a scientific fact that exercise increases free radicals in the body, especially during endurance exercise. Reflex Nutrition have a long standing research program that has led to the development of one of the world's most advanced antioxidant supplements, aoc® (Anti-Oxidant-Collection). Calling on data from that program, The Edge® contains optimal antioxidants scientifically proven to assist the body's antioxidant defence system. As a result The Edge® could offer increased protection and faster recovery compared to energy drinks without antioxidants.
Lactospore® in The Edge
Recent scientific findings clearly show that probiotics can boost the immune systems of athletes; it is a well known fact that long and intensive exercise can subdue the body's immune system - probiotics are therefore of great importance to the serious athlete. The Edge® is one of, if not the first energy drink in the world to contain a stable probiotic called Lactospore®.
