REPLENISH, REBUILD, AND RESTORE.

Tailwind Rebuild is the first sport recovery drink based on a patent-pending perfectly complete protein. We start with organic rice protein, and supplement it with amino acids to make that protein complete. Then we add carbohydrates, some healthy fats from coconut milk, and just the right amount of electrolytes. Nothing repairs your muscles more efficiently, restores your energy faster, and makes you feel better sooner. And athletes love the great tasting healthy vegan ingredients.

For the past several years, we’ve been recommending that Tailwind Nutrition Endurance Fuel be used as part of the recovery process. We suggested that customers continue drinking Tailwind immediately post activity to take advantage of the “magical 30-60 minute window” to replenish glycogen stores and then follow it with a nice balanced meal with protein, fat and carbohydrates. But just like us, our customers often found themselves at the end of a trailhead – not near a kitchen to whip up a meal.

More and more of our customers started asking us to come out with a recovery drink that would help them feel better faster, and just like our endurance fuel, was convenient, vegan, and tasted great. In other words, a recovery drink that you could mix with water at the end of an adventure, drink right away and be ready to tackle another epic the next day.

Jeff enlisted the help of his friend, Art Zemach, a fellow endurance athlete who also happens to be a physician. They threw themselves into the R&D of what would become Tailwind Rebuild. Along the way, they discovered critical aspects for a successful recovery – not just the importance of glycogen replenishment during the 30-60 minute window, but also how important it is to use the right amounts of carbohydrates and complete protein, as opposed to focusing on a specific ratio of carbohydrates to protein. They also realized the importance of replacing any fluid and electrolyte losses to recover faster. Ultimately, however, they understood that it wouldn’t make a bit of difference unless it was better than other recovery drinks on the market and beat the convenience and taste of chocolate milk.

What Makes Tailwind Rebuild Different?

Tailwind Rebuild is based on a patent-pending mathematical model that enables us to build a complete protein in a very efficient way starting with organic rice protein and supplementing it with amino acids. This is important because only complete protein is used for recovery. It turns out that the total amount of protein that you see on a nutrition label doesn’t really mean anything when it comes to recovery because only a portion of that protein is complete; the rest is incomplete. That’s why the carbohydrate to protein ratio doesn’t really mean a lot but the amounts of carbohydrates and complete protein do.

To put things in perspective, you need to drink 2x as much chocolate milk and 3x more of other recovery drinks in order to match the complete protein found in Tailwind Rebuild. 

We also add both slow and fast-burning carbohydrates, some healthy fats from coconut milk, and just the right amounts of electrolytes to WHO rehydration standards. As a result, nothing repairs your muscles more efficiently, restores your energy faster, and makes you feel better sooner.

There’s a lot more to Tailwind Rebuild which we’ll cover in a series of blogs, but the last thing we want to mention is that Tailwind Rebuild is vegan. After you taste it, you’ll think we must have slipped some dairy into our recovery drink, but we promise that we didn’t! Best part? It mixes with water so, at the end of your activity, you don’t need to be in the kitchen to throw it in a blender and push the “on” button. Instead, just fill a small water bottle and pour in the Rebuild, shake well, and drink! We promise that your taste buds won’t revolt, and instead beg for more.

To hear Jeff Vierling, Tailwind Nutrition co-founder, and Dr Art Zemach dicuss the thoughts and science behind Rebuild please listen to the Trail Runner Nation podcast http://trailrunnernation.com/2018/02/the-science-of-nutrition/ and learn why Rebuild is different from other recovery drinks.

    Both the vanilla and chocolate shakes taste surprisingly good, and seem to be effective.

    Chocolate Heaven

    First few swigs were a little weird, expected the sweet taste of milk chocolate however the chocolate recovery drink is more bitter dark chocolate with a slightly salty hint. Once my brain and taste buds aligned it was completely enjoyable.

    Great product

    Seems to really help with recovery. Great to have a measured amount in a sachet. Doesn’t seem as heavy on the stomach as some other products.

    Recovery is the Key

    Posted by Stephen Knowles on 7th Jun 2018

    I have started to use the Nutrition rebuild recovery drink after long sessions on the bike or after long runs one if the best things about Tailwind is that its easy to drink and digests with flavours that are good on the pallet, I will definitely be ordering more this is the perfect recovery drink and works well with Tailwind Endurance Fuel (Mandarin Orange) They both compliment each other during activities and after.
