After getting sick to his stomach at the finish of the Leadville 100 bike race, Jeff was fed up with fueling issues hijacking all the hard work he put into training. He turned to science to understand how our bodies fuel and realized a lot of products were getting it wrong when he looked at the ingredients. So he began experimenting, tweaking, and testing on a 1960s era KitchenAid. He filled up his Osprey and climbed Durango’s trails along with his wife, Jenny, and the local Thursday Bike n' Beer group. Before long, he found himself filling up ziplock baggies, and meeting people in parking lots to hand them out. (It looked a bit suspicious!) Tailwind Nutrition was born - a simple nutrition product made with natural ingredients to help athletes of all levels reach their goals.

We recommend consuming one single serving packet (2 scoops), mixed with 24oz (about 710ml) of water per hour of activity. Just pour, shake and go. Adjust your intake to meet your personal calorie needs and use hunger as a guide; if you feel hungry, increase your calories. Overly satiated or full? Dial it back. We're always here to help you dial in your nutrition so feel free to email us at email@example.com if you need help!
We recommend consuming one single serving packet (2 scoops), mixed with 16oz (about 500ml) of water within 30 minutes after exercise to take advantage of your body’s ability to efficiently replenish glycogen stores during this time window. Just pour, shake and recover. For longer or more intense workouts, follow with a second serving of Recovery Mix in the next 30 minutes.
You've probably reached the point about an hour into your exercise where you feel like you have nothing left in the tank - and that's basically true!
Your body stores energy in the form of glycogen (sugar) and has enough to get you through about an hour of exercise. Once it runs out, your blood sugar plummets and you bonk hard. To avoid the crash, you need to put sugar back into your bloodstream.
Our products contain simple sugars (dextrose and sucrose) as our primary ingredients. Simple sugars go straight into your bloodstream to replenish glycogen stores and prevent you from crashing or having an upset stomach during or after exercise.
Many exercise fuel and recovery products contain maltodextrin, a long chain of glucose molecules, which need to be broken down into glucose molecules before being absorbed by the small intestine. Your body runs on glucose so that's what Tailwind provides - emptying quickly from the stomach and immediately absorbed.
Our Endurance Fuel has a shelf life of three years, and the Recovery Mix, two years. Once added to water, a good rule of thumb is to treat Endurance Fuel and Recovery Mix like juice. After mixing, our products taste best if consumed within a day. If mixed and stored in the fridge, they will stay fresh for about a week.
P.S. You will know when you have let it hang around in your bottle too long, it will smell a little bit funky and you'll think you have started a science experiment!
Ack! You just opened your bag and can’t find the scoop. Or you ordered our single servings which don’t come with a scoop. Not to fear, we’ve got you covered.
