What, when and how much you eat following intense exercise has a dynamic effect on your training adaptation and muscle recovery. But, not all nutrient combinations work well independently.
As a result, Critical Reload’s 2:1 carbohydrate and protein blend infuses the muscle with growth-promoting proteins and energy replenishing carbohydrates so you can recover faster and kick-start your next workout into high gear!*
WINDOW #1: To speed muscle recovery, drink Critical Reload immediately after exercise to replenish depleted energy stores, stimulate muscle growth and facilitate quicker recovery between training & practice.*
WINDOW #2: To boost energy, drink Critical Reload 30-minutes prior to exercise to boost blood glucose levels, delay fatigue, & counteract muscle damage during exercise.*
WINDOW #3: As a snack, drink Critical Reload between meals (i.e., breakfast-lunch, lunch-dinner) as a nutritious snack to boost metabolism, maintain blood sugar levels, and prepare for sustained energy and performance.*Previous Next

While the post-exercise "optimum window" is a subject of the discussion, glycogen replenishment and protein eating immediately after exercise or an event help enhance adaptations and recovery while reducing adrenal stress and catabolism.LEARN ABOUT PRE-WORKOUT
Critical Reload is different from milk becuase it contains three distinct, proportional types of protein: casein and whey proteins (isolate and hydrolyzed), so the user gets a unique sequence of amino acids. Critical Reload scores 100% in all essential amino acids – not limiting or deficient in the essential amino acids. Why all this focus on amino acids?
First and foremost, your body builds muscle out of amino acids, not whole proteins. Secondly, proteins provide the body critical amino acids that serve as building blocks for the formation of new muscle. But not all dietary proteins are equal. Since whey rapidly increases protein synthesis and casein blocks protein breakdown, a combination of both was ideal in the ingredient development of Critical Reload.
Milk proteins are excellent sources of essential amino acids, but they differ in one crucial aspect — whey is a fast-digesting protein, and casein is a slow-digesting protein. Fast-digesting whey means it is emptied from the stomach quickly, resulting in a rapid and significant increase in plasma amino acids. The results are a quick but transient increase in protein synthesis, while protein breakdown is not affected. Whey also has higher levels of leucine, a potent amino acid that stimulates protein synthesis. Whey protein is superior at augmenting protein synthesis rapidly, but this positive effect is short-lived.
Milk casein protein is relatively insoluble and tends to form structures called micelles that increase solubility in water. During the processing of milk, which usually involves heat or acid, the casein peptides and micelle structure become disturbed or denatured to form simpler structures. As a result, a gelatinous material gets developed. The basis for whey casein is a slower rate of digestion, which results in a slow but steady release of amino acids into circulation.Is Critical Reload Gluten-Free?
Yes, Critical Reload is completely GLUTEN-FREE!!! What is more, Critical Reload President and founder’s wife has Celiac’s Disease and consumes Critical Reload regularly.Is Critical Reload Lactose-Free?
No. Critical Reload does contain a low-level of lactose (2-grams per 8-ounce (oz) serving compared to 12-grams per 8-oz searing of low-fat milk). Lactose tolerance varies widely. The majority of athletes I’ve worked with whom are lactose intolerant can take Critical Reload without any gastrointestinal disturbance. There is a minority though that cannot take Critical Reload because of their heightened lactose sensitivity. We recommend you consult your physician before using Critical Reload.How many bags come in a case of Critical Reload?
A case of Critical Reload contains six (6), 3.4-pound bags.How many servings of Critical Reload are in a 3.4-pound bag?
Each 3.4-pound bag of Critical Reload contains 24 servings.How is Critical Reload Different From A Dietary Supplement?
Critical Reload is considered a conventional food as defined by the FDA. A dietary supplement contains one or more dietary ingredients that may include: vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, and amino acids, other substances found in the human diet, such as enzymes. Critical Reload contains none of the dietary ingredients.
Secondly, Critical Reload is produced in a food manufacturing facility that is GMP certified, and FDA regulated. The acronym GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, and to be GMP certified means that the manufacturer demonstrates a robust regulatory commitment and compliance to international GMP standards.
Lastly, conventional foods must have a Nutrition Facts panel while dietary supplements must have a Supplement Facts panel. Label verification delineates Critical Reload’s nutrition panel as Nutrition Facts and NOT Supplement Facts.LEARN MORE ABOUT INGREDIENTS
