Putting Trifuel to the Test — Is It Really 3 in One?

The popularity of sports drinks has risen progressively higher ever since Gatorade hit the scene back in 1965.

Today athletes have access to all kinds of sports drinks. The highlights list includes preworkout performance boosters, intra-workout energy elixirs, post-workout recovery drinks, and more.

But more options aren’t always better. Complexity can all too easily cause confusion and decision fatigue!

But is TriFuel really a 3-in-one drink? Can it really take the place of your normal pre-, post-, and intraworkout drinks? Let’s take a closer look.

  • How sports drinks work
  • Putting TriFuel to the test

What are sports drinks?

Sports drinks are exactly what they sound like: drinks designed to fuel your favorite sports.

Sports nutrition has taken the average sports drink a long way since Gatorade’s inception. Today’s sports drinks usually contain the following types of active ingredients:

  • Carbs (often glucose)
  • Electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium, calcium, etc)
  • Antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, etc)
  • Amino acids (L-glutamine, L-theanine, etc)
  • Pro-metabolic nutrients (vitamin B12, or even stimulants like caffeine)

This is just one of the reasons we created TriFuel — a sports nutrition drink that contains everything you need for every stage of your workout window.

The potential benefits of sports drinks are just as vast. High-quality sports drinks can:

  • Help maintain hydration
  • Prevent stomach discomfort and cramps
  • Boost energy (almost like energy drinks)

But do sports drinks actually work?

The research says yes. Today’s athletes are so accustomed to sports drinks that they may even benefit from the color of said drinks — that’s according to a 2021 study that found that runners ran faster when they drank a colored solution than when they drank plain water. [1] Let’s look at the mechanisms that make sports drinks work next.

How sports drinks work

Most sports drinks are designed to protect your body from the harsh side effects of working out, making your workouts more effective in the process! They usually do this in two ways. Sports drinks may:

  • Help you maintain optimal hydration status
  • Help you access more energy, faster

Help you maintain optimal hydration status

Sweating during your workout may help you cool off, but it also causes your cells to lose valuable electrolytes — and this makes them lose their much-needed electrical charge.

That’s where sports drinks come in. Sports drinks replace both the water and the electrolytes your body loses when working out. This replenishment and rehydration takes the edge off hard workouts, leaving you less drained in the postworkout period.

Help you access more energy, faster

Athletic performance is all about energy. Sports drinks contain carbs in hopes of replenishing muscle glycogen (stored glucose) faster than it can be burned away. [2]

Preworkout sports drinks add another element to the energy equation; they often include caffeine to help your body mobilize its fat stores and preserve its glycogen stores for later on in your workout.

Postworkout sports drinks, on the other hand, often include fast-acting whey protein that provides your body with the restructuring it needs after an intense workout. Protein is so important to the postworkout recovery window that even chocolate milk can serve as an effective recovery drink. [3]

Putting TriFuel to the test

Now that we’ve covered the traditional roles of preworkout, intraworkout, and postworkout drinks . . . let’s see if TriFuel can really take the place of all three! In order for it to do so, it needs to contain 3 categories of nutrients:

Preworkout energy mobilizers: check. TriFuel contains 60 milligrams of caffeine (and other pro-metabolic nutrients) per serving.

Intraworkout fuel: check. TriFuel contains enough carbohydrates (primarily maltodextrin and dextrose) to keep your energy up throughout even the most intensive endurance training. It’s also rich in electrolytes to prevent cramps and other ‘electrical’ problems.

Postworkout protein: check! TriFuel contains a 2:1:1 amino acid ratio designed to restore and repair stressed muscles.

Customers affirm that TriFuel really does check all three boxes. “I love TriFuel for long bike rides,” says Tom. “It has carbohydrates for energy, electrolytes to keep me from cramping, and the amino acids help my muscles to immediately start repairing.”

To summarize, TriFuel is designed to address every stage of intense exercise:

  • Provides long-lasting energy
  • Builds and maintains lean muscle mass
  • Replenishes fluids and electrolytes
  • Enhances mental concentration and focus
  • Reduces muscle soreness
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Speeds up recovery

Suffice to say that it’s premium endurance fuel . . . for premium endurance athletes!

The Uniqueness of TriFuel: Summing things up

Why spend hundreds of dollars on pre-race, electrolytes, endurance fuels, focus, and recovery products . . . when you can get TriFuel’s three-in-one blend for as little as $49.76?

TriFuel is the most advanced and effective endurance supplement you can buy with everything your body needs to perform at the highest level. Try it for yourself today if you’re ready to streamline your sports nutrition — and your spending.
