A Formula You Can Trust
The MR+ formula was created by a team of doctors and scientists from the U.S. Air Force 711th Human Performance Wing; a process that required over 6 years of research.
The initial request for an improved nutritional meal replacement came from a combat controller, who explained to Dr. O’Hara from the USAFSAM team, that mixing several different packets adds hassle to his already demanding job as a special operator and removes his focus from the battlefield.
“As an Air Force researcher, there’s no greater joy than to have a warfighter reach out directly,” said O’Hara. “After that request, I was excited to come back to the lab and really dig in—I wanted to see what was already out there and if we could help develop something better for these guys.”
Soldiers from Special Operation Units are often exposed to hot climates and harsh environments that increase the likelihood of dehydration. Food can become limited to only what the soldiers can carry in their packs. This supplement powder was created to replace an entire MRE, as well as other electrolyte and energy supplements that are often carried during a sustained operation.
The formula was created to effectively lighten the warfighter's pack weight, allowing them to carry more ammunition at a single time. It also supports them nutritionally, preventing them from suffering dehydration and maintaining their physical and cognitive performance.
