reGen™ retained as Official Recovery Beverage of the AHL

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that reGen™ recovery beverage will be retained as the “Official Recovery Beverage of the AHL” for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.

“reGen™ recovery beverage has been well-received by our players and teams, and the AHL is excited to continue our partnership with reGen™,” said Chris Nikolis, executive vice president of marketing and business development for the American Hockey League.

Through the partnership, the AHL will also maintain its player-based recognition program – the reGen™ AHL Performance of the Month award – to honor an AHL player for an outstanding on-ice achievement.

“Without the proper nourishment and recovery, muscles can break down and can actually inhibit a person’s performance,” said Bernie Banas, vice president of customer innovation for the reGen™ brand. “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the AHL and its players, and have a role in helping these fine athletes perform at their best throughout the remaining season.”

Powered by natural cocoa and the scientifically recommended 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein that is optimal for recovery, reGen™ beverage is clinically proven to improve muscle recovery by an average of 25 percent compared to the leading carbohydrate and electrolyte beverage. Distributed by Apure Foods Company, reGen™ recovery beverage has also been shown to provide a 9.7 percent average increase in endurance1. It is available online, at specialty retailers and at select GNC stores. For more information about the reGen™ beverage, or to find a local store near you, visit
