Being a T2D (Type 2 Diabetic) and a heavy weight strength trainer, I had started with Fast & Up Reload and Fast & Up Recover.
Fast and Up Review: Fast & Up Reload (hydration—during workout)
An excellent combination of water, carbohydrates, vitamins and electrolytes, with a dash of fructose and maltodextrin, Fast and Up Reload (1) counters damage caused by Exercise Induced Oxidative Stress (EXIOS); (2) helps in providing instant energy; (3) helps in healing wounds; (4) reduces fatigue, and (5) enhances performance.

Fast & Up Reload Usage
Take 250 ml room temperature water. Drop 1 tablet and wait till it completely dissolves. Your drink is ready. During workout, if 250 ml finishes in no time, you can make another 250 ml to 500 ml. For 500 ml, you need 2 tablets.
As a T2D and 83% Mesomorph, I was looking for one product that would keep me hydrated during heavy exercises (I sweat a lot), and at the same time, not spike my blood sugar level. Before this, I had tried many other such products but my sugar level had fluctuated on many occasions. I was sceptical about Fast & Up Reload. Well… I took a chance and it is about 20 days now, I have no complaints. NO SIDE EFFECTS NOTICED/FELT.
My excessive sweating has stopped; I can concentrate more on my training than wasting time wiping sweat off my face, neck and arms every minute or two. As a mesomorph, I am already energetic; Fast and Up Reload has added more to my energy level.
Fast and Up Reload will work excellent on ENDOMORPHS working out at a gym. Endomorphs are known to have low-to-very-low metabolism and sluggishness.
Fast and Up Review: Fast & Up Recover (post workout)
An ideal supplement drink (to be taken within 15 to 20 minute post workout, race, or match) to stimulate protein synthesis and repair muscle tissues, Fast and Up Recover has more than BCAAs, L Arginine and L Glutamine—a unique combo in one! Recover helps building proteins in the body and balancing biological molecules at a cellular level. DO NOT EAT anything immediately after drinking Fast & Up Recover. At least give half-an-hour gap.
Fast & Up Recover Ingredients (per tablet)
L Leucine 150 mg
L Glutamine 100 mg
L Threonine 100 mg
L Lysine HCI 100 mg
L Ornithine HCI 85 mg
L Arginine 85 mg
L Proline 60 mg
L Histidine 60 mg
L Serine 60 mg
L Carnitine 50 mg
L Isoleucine 50 mg
L Valine 50 mg
L Citrulline 50 mg
L Phenylalanine 50 mg
L Tyrosine 50 mg
L Methionine 50 mg
L Glycine 50 mg
Taurine 50 mg
L Glutathione reduced 50 mg
L Tryptophan 40 mg
Fast & Up Recover Usage
Take 250 ml room temperature water. Drop 1 tablet and wait till it completely dissolves. Your drink is ready. Drink it within 15 to 20 minutes post workout. Whatever you want to eat can be after about 45 minutes to 1 hour of drinking Fast & Up Recover.
Again, as a T2D and 83% Mesomorph, I took a chance with this Fast & Up Recover post workout drink. Actually, I could not resist myself from trying something that has BCAAs, L Arginine and L Glutamine—all packed in one effervescent tablet, in the right amount. It is about 20 days now, and I have no complaints. NO SIDE EFFECTS NOTICED/FELT.
Whatever tiredness and fatigue I would feel earlier, has been taken care of. Also, earlier when I would lift quite heavy weights, I would feel pain in arms or legs during the day. Now, I don’t feel that pain creeping up.
IMPORTANT: I would suggest you take whey protein (if you are already using it as post workout drink) at any other time of the day. There is no use of taking both whey protein and Fast & Up Recover as post workout drink at the same time.

Fast and Up Review: Conclusion
