Supporting our troops to recover faster and stronger. Xcelerated Recovery™ provides nutritional optimization when you need it most.

Rapid loss of muscle mass & strength is seen following injury. This is further compounded by the stress of surgery.

Injury + Surgery = Compounded Stress

Healthy young men have a decrease of muscle size with immobilization, showing the greatest amount of atrophy in the quadriceps:

*-1.7% at 2 days

*-5.5% at 7 days

Associated Strength Loss:

*Leg extensor -19%

*Leg press -21%

*Calf strength -8%

Clark JPEN 2000

Post ACL Injury & Surgery

*20% Loss of quad mass and strength post-injury

*40% Loss of strength post-surgery

  • Muscle loss begins in as little as 48-hours of inactivity/injury, with the most significant loss within five days.

    50% drop in muscle protein synthesis by 2 wks.


    Biol Sci Med Sci. 2008

  • Effect of 10 days of bed rest on skeletal muscle in healthy older adults.

    After 3 days of hospitalization, elderly inpatients lost approx the amount of lean leg muscle as healthy older subjects experienced in 10 days of inactivity– approx 3-fold> greater loss of lean leg muscle mass than a younger cohort confined to bed for 28 days. (2,4)

  • NASA studies aimed to preserve muscle mass have demonstrated Targeted Nutritional Supplementation to preserve muscle loss even in extreme conditions such as 28 of days of bed rest.

    J Clin Endocrinol Metab 2004(4)

  • Targeted nutritional supplementation can improve muscle gain in the most challenging patients.

    HIV patients who were supplemented with ARG/GLUT/HMB for 8wks had a significant increase in LBM in comparison to placebo.
