Commentary on EAS Myoplex Strength Formula Nutrition Shakes:
From Monica Hysell, Abbott Nutrition general manager and division vice president, Healthy Living:
"It can be difficult to get the proper nutrition to refuel the body after working out. That's why Abbott made it easier than ever to drink an EAS Myoplex Strength Formula shake -- not only does it have a delicious new taste, it also has an easy-to-handle shape and reclosable top. It's just one more way Abbott is making it convenient to get proper nutrition after exercising."
From Amanda Carlson, MS, RD, CSSD, director of performance nutrition at Athletes' Performance and Core Performance:
"As a sports nutritionist and long-time believer in EAS products, my advice to people is to understand that nutrition is your fitness partner. Whether you are a professional athlete or a casual jogger, you need to refuel after a workout to replenish the carbohydrate you've just burned and provide protein to help rebuild the muscles you've broken down. I recommend EAS Myoplex Strength Formula shakes to my clients because they help the body refuel and rebuild after vigorous activity, plus they are backed by the trusted work of Abbott scientists."
From Keith Wheeler, Ph.D., divisional vice president of Adult Nutrition Research, Development & Scientific Affairs:
"Many people are frustrated when they do not see results after spending time in the gym, doing Pilates or biking. Often, the missing link is nutrition -- after working out, the body needs protein, carbohydrate and other nutrients to refuel and rebuild. EAS(R) Myoplex(R) Strength Formula shakes have a new formula with carbohydrate and protein to help the body refuel to help make the most out of every workout."
