Terminus
What Makes Terminus So Beneficial?

Learn More About The Ingredients

Non-GMO Dextrose

Dextrose (glucose) is a natural, ultra fast-absorbing sugar, which maximizes glycogen resynthesis and drives nutrients into your cells within the 30-minute recovery window.

Organic Plant Protein Blend

Terminus contains an optimal 70:30 pea to brown rice protein ratio.  This ratio ensures a complete amino acid profile, which leads to enhanced digestibility and optimal recovery.

Optimal Carb:Protein Ratio

Terminus is formulated with a 3.3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio. The scientific literature has established that a range of between 3:1 and 4:1 is optimal for post-endurance exercise.

Premium Ingredients

Rather than use cheaper, less absorbable, and, ultimately, less beneficial varieties, we used ideal forms of vitamins and minerals uncommonly found in other recovery supplements. Some examples are B12 as methylcobalamin, B6 as pyridoxal 5’-phosphate, zinc as zinc picolinate, folate in the methylated MTHF form, and magnesium as magnesium glycinate.

Additional Glutamine

Glutamine levels decrease following exhaustive exercise.  Studies show that glutamine improves recovery and glycogen replenishment, boosts immunity, and prevents overtraining.  Additionally, glutamine has been shown to reduce exercise-induced intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome).  This may prevent GI distress, which is commonly associated with ultra-endurance exercise.

Additional BCAAs enhance muscle recovery and protein synthesis, and boost immunity. BCAAs have also been shown to promote glycogen replenishment post-exercise.  While most BCAAs are made with less than desirable ingredients (animal fur/hair, duck feathers, and human hair), Terminus contains higher quality vegan  BCAAs.

L-carnitine

Research shows that L-carnitine repairs damaged muscles, increases fat oxidation, and aids in the overall recovery process.  L-carnitine is crucial for energy metabolism and cardiovascular health.  Those who follow a plant-based diet are especially vulnerable to an L-carnitine insufficiency. 

B Vitamins

B Vitamins are critical for immunity, efficient macronutrient metabolism (energy production), red blood cell synthesis, and muscle repair.

Electrolytes

Sufficient electrolyte intake prevents cramping, promotes antioxidant synthesis, and assists in muscle contractions and nutrient metabolism. 

Zinc

Endurance exercise depletes zinc.  The amount of zinc depletion increases relative to the amount of sweat from exercise.  Insufficient zinc leads to lower endurance capacity, impaired immune function, and, ultimately, crippled performance.  Our formulation includes zinc picolinate.  Research has demonstrated increased absorbability with picolinate compared to other, cheaper forms of zinc commonly found in other products.
