Designed for

Special Forces military personnel that require optimal levels of cognitive and physical performance whilst training at base.


Recommended use

As a dietary supplement, mix 3 lightly heaped scoops (65g) or one sachet with 250ml of cold water or the beverage of your choice. Vary the amount of liquid to achieve your desired consistency. Use pre or post training or as required to meet and maintain a good nutritional balance.

TRAINING FORMULA

At all times soldiers must be prepared for deployment by maintaining optimal physical strength and conditioning. Nutrition has long been recognised as playing a vital role in optimising health, recovery and performance. This includes the provision of adequate energy and high quality protein to maximise muscle protein synthesis and carbohydrate to fuel cardio and high intensity resistance training (1, 2). Tactical Nutrition’s T9 formula has been designed using the latest in sports and military nutrition research, providing optimal levels of these nutrients, as well as providing vitamins and minerals to supplement the diets of Special Forces soldiers.

The Training T9 formula is available in Chocolate and Vanilla. Both in 1.5kg tubs as well as 65g single serve sachets.


Specification Features

> Meets high energy requirements, with 1120kJ per serve.

> 21 grams of premium whey protein per serve, containing 3g of leucine and 6g of Essential Amino Acids. Most importantly this quantity of amino acids has been shown in clinical research to maximise muscle protein synthesis after exercise (3).

> The Training T9 formula contains 34g per serve of carbohydrate from a mixture of maltodextrin (glucose polymer) and fructose. Consuming carbohydrate immediately after exercise can help to rapidly restore muscle glycogen levels and subsequent training performance (4).

> Provides a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to help ensure nutritional adequacy.

> Lightweight sachets maximise convenience and portability.

> Easy to mix, great tasting formula to promote and assist with consumption before and after training.
