Frequently Asked Questions
Q-1: Why do Zipvit energy and recovery products focus so heavily on improving energy delivery?
Ans: Depletion of the body’s energy stores is one of the most common causes of fatigue during endurance exercise. Project ZV uses scientifically advanced carbohydrate formulations to improve energy delivery as this provides one of the most effective ways to combat fatigue.
Q-2: Why do project Zipvit recovery products focus so much on improving health?
Ans: Sports medicine increasingly shows that even minor illness can severely disrupt training and impair performance for several weeks or even months. Zipvit recovery drinks, bars and chews focus on improving both performance and health.
Q-3: Zipvit recovery drinks contain colostrum. Is this on the WADA banned list?
Ans: The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) lists substances that are prohibited for use by sportsmen. Colostrum is a natural food supplement produced from milk and is permitted under WADA rules. Colostrum supplements are particularly useful to athletes and are scientifically proven to reduce the incidence of infections and improve exercise performance. Therefore inclusion of colostrum increases the effectiveness of Zipvit recovery drinks.
Q-4: Why don’t any Zipvit products contain soy protein?
Ans: All Zipvit products have been specifically formulated without soy protein. Although soy can be a useful protein source independent research studies have shown that small amounts of soy can reduce testosterone levels in men and alter levels of reproductive hormones in women. Many athletes consider these effects undesirable, so Zipvit sport products use other protein sources with proven performance benefits.
