How to Use Tailwind Nutrition?

Using Tailwind Nutrition products is relatively straightforward, and it's designed to be an easy-to-use fuel source for endurance athletes. Here are general guidelines for using Tailwind Nutrition:

Mixing Instructions: For most activities, the recommended mixing ratio is one scoop of Tailwind Nutrition powder per 24 ounces (approximately 710 ml) of water.

Adjust the ratio based on your individual needs, the intensity of your activity, and environmental conditions. You can use more or less powder to suit your taste preferences and caloric requirements.

Use Throughout the Activity:
Tailwind Endurance Fuel is meant to be consumed consistently throughout your activity. It's not a one-time energy boost but a sustained fuel source.

Start drinking Tailwind Nutrition early in your activity, ideally from the beginning, to maintain a steady intake of calories and electrolytes.

Tailwind as Your Sole Nutrition Source:
Tailwind Endurance Fuel is formulated to be a complete source of nutrition, providing both calories and electrolytes. In many cases, it can serve as your sole nutrition source during endurance activities, eliminating the need for additional gels, bars, or supplements.

Tailwind Nutrition helps with hydration as it contains electrolytes. However, it's still important to drink water as needed, especially in hot or humid conditions. Adjust your water intake based on your individual hydration needs.

Experiment and Adjust:
Tailwind recommends experimenting with the amount and concentration during training sessions to find what works best for you. Everyone's nutritional needs and preferences are different.

Carry Extra Tailwind:
For longer activities or events, consider carrying extra Tailwind powder with you so you can mix more as needed. Portable single-serve packs are often available for this purpose.

After your activity, consider using Tailwind's Recovery Mix to replenish nutrients and support muscle recovery.

Always follow the specific instructions provided on the Tailwind Nutrition packaging, as formulations and recommendations may vary. It's also a good idea to consult with a sports nutritionist or healthcare professional to tailor your nutrition plan to your individual needs and goals.

About Tailwind Nutrition

Tailwind Nutrition is a company that originated from the founder's personal experience with the challenges of nutrition during endurance events, particularly the Leadville 100 MTB. Frustrated with traditional fueling options that caused digestive issues, the founder sought to create a product that would spare the gut, be easy to use, taste good, and provide sustained energy for endurance athletes.

The company's journey began with extensive research into sports nutrition and how the body processes fuel. Recognizing the difficulties in digesting many existing products, the founder experimented with powder formulations that matched the body's absorption of fuel. Through testing on the trails in Durango, Colorado, with the help of his wife, Jenny, and the local Thursday Bike n’ Beer group, Tailwind was born. The resulting drink is designed to be easy on the stomach, maintain consistent energy levels, balance electrolytes and hydration, and taste good even in challenging conditions.

Tailwind Nutrition expanded its product line to include a Recovery Mix, collaborating with an ole buddy, Art, who is an endurance athlete and physician. The emphasis is on creating products that cater to the needs of athletes, ensuring they can perform at their best without compromising their digestive system.

The company's mission is exemplified by stories like Lisa's, who overcame stomach issues and successfully completed an endurance mountain biking race after using Tailwind. This success story and others reinforce Tailwind's commitment to helping customers achieve their goals, no matter how big or small.

Tailwind Nutrition is based in Durango, Colorado, a location chosen for its status as the ultimate outdoor playground at the cusp of mountains and deserts. The staff not only manufactures the products locally but also tests them on long rides along flowing single tracks and adventures in the San Juan Mountains, embodying the ethos of being made by athletes for athletes. The company expresses gratitude to its customers and acknowledges their role in making the journey an amazing one, evident in the personalized touch of writing customer names on every bag shipped and including a note.
