Elevated heart rate



Inability to process solid foods

Flavor intolerance

These are the symptoms that critically ill people and endurance athletes have in common. People with chronic health issues struggle to process solid foods, are nauseated and have issues with strong flavors. Ultra-endurance athletes have the same struggles of eating and drinking enough to fuel their day. The conditions are very similar. The patient will reduce their chances for a healthy outcome, and the athlete may not finish the race.

15 years ago, founder and CEO Michael Folan had a goal to create an isotonic, all-in-one nutrition solution that contains everything an athlete needs in one lightly flavored drink. As a ten-time IRONMAN finisher and cancer survivor, Folan knew first hand the product had to provide enough calories and electrolytes, while being easy on the gut, and still tasting good long into your hardest days.

“When we launched Infinit Performance the requests began almost immediately from people searching for an alternative to processed canned meal replacement drinks. We received request after request to create high calorie and protein, all-in-one nutrition solutions for a population, which on the surface seemed miles away from our traditional athlete clientele — People who were battling chronic illness. These individuals are desperately searching for an easy to digest all natural solution to help with both weight maintenance and hydration. If you aren't feeling great, and you can’t find anything you can tolerate at the store, you will seek out solutions.“

It turns out that :RESTORE by Infinit Wellness is one of those solutions.

Cancer, GI issues like IBS/IBD or Crohn's and colitis, advanced age, autoimmune disorders and other chronic health issues put the body under tremendous stress. Symptoms can make eating a chore, making it difficult to take in the calories and protein needed to keep up strength and energy to fuel your fight. :RESTORE by Infinit Wellness is a way to stay hydrated and maintain weight for those not feeling well due to the symptoms of their disease.

Created as an all-natural supplement to help people that are not feeling well to stay hydrated, maintain body weight and keep muscle mass. :RESTORE by Infinit Wellness has an adjustable flavoring system designed specifically to taste great all day long even when you're not feeling your best.

RESTORE by Infinit Wellness Provides:

  • Up to 30 grams of ultra premium complete protein

  • A light flavor that is delicious and thirst quenching all day long

  • Isotonic and easy to digest — Acts like an "Oral-IV"

  • Adjust calories, flavor or protein to match what you need today

  • Micronutrients and amino acids to support recovery and healing

A simple 100% all-natural isotonic powdered drink mix with zero colors or artificial sweeteners — Mix 1, 2 or 3 scoops depending on how many calories and protein you need to supplement for the day.

Consuming a balanced nutritious diet is always the first goal, but during those times when you are not able to eat Infinit Wellness gives you the ability to personalize your calories, protein and even flavor to help nourish, hydrate and revitalize.
