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! 

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.

Recovery drink works
Monday, 16 July 2018  | 

I recently purchased the recovery drink moreso on a whim than anything else. I had been using a choc flavoured protein milk after most long day training or race days. I've since used the choc flavoured recovery drink 4 times now and all I can say is wow!! The difference the following day especially on back to back training or race day/training day is brilliant! I mightn't be doing the distances as some people here would be doing but for me I notice the difference e.g 2 weeks ago I raced a half marathon and the following day went out and cycled 145K had the recovery drink after each event and was surprisingly fresh on the Monday morning with no aches or pains!! So top job to the folks in Tailwind development! I'll be placing another order in soon as I'll be competing in my first ultra trail Marathon in the coming weeks and will be using it after that too, along with Tailwind during the event too!!!

So tasty
Sunday, 15 July 2018  | 

Bought this after it being recommended by my brother in law. Did wonder how it would taste mixed with water but have got to say, it's delicious! It's helping me recover while training for my first half marathon. I also use it to make recovery protein bites.

This was so delicious I nearly forgot that it was a recovery shake. I'm not vegetarian but think it's weird to drink another animals milk, so glad the made this vegan. I used it after two previous marathons and noticed less soreness and recovered quickly, I'll be back for more!

I have only tasted the chocolate flavour so far but it beats any other recovery shake I've tasted previously - it really does taste like a lovely rich chocolate milkshake. I'll definitely be ordering more #delicious

Easy to use sachet portion makes this an idea after race/training quick and easy hit recovery go to. Pleasant vanilla flavour that perhaps could be a little more flavoursome. Vegan friendly if that's a factor. Now a staple in my race day packing.

Worth using to keep training hard
Monday, 2 July 2018  | 

The product mixes well and easily with water, taste is a little strange but not too unpleasant so easy enough to get down.
I'm training 6 days per week with quite high volume and intensity so recovery is important. I use the rebuild within 20 mins of ending my training for all my hard sessions, I find I have an improvement in energy level and less muscle soreness when I use the rebuild so for me definitely worth a shot
