What is it for?
Recently, due to the enormous energy demands of this type of activity, the role of nutrition in training has been reinforced as one of the fundamental pillars. Therefore, factors such as carbohydrate and electrolyte intake are of particular importance. On the other hand, the amount of carbohydrates during exercise must meet the athlete's needs and be optimal for the individual athlete.
It should also be kept in mind that carbohydrate intake during exercise follows other carriers when consumed in large amounts, which means that for low and moderate carbohydrate intake, the intake of a glucose source is sufficient. However, in high carbohydrate sports (45/60g), a 2:1 combination of glucose and fructose may be a good option to increase total carbohydrate during exercise. Therefore, using fructose as a carbohydrate together with glucose may provide a more attractive effect than using both alone.
Therefore, the presented gels are very beneficial, as each gel provides 20 g of maltodextrin and 10 g of fructose (i.e. 30 g of total carbohydrate) and 200 mg of sodium (the main electrolyte lost through sweat).
On the one hand, we considered the main limitations of athletes in the range of parameters highlighted in the selection and design of these gels.
It is easy to consume with its watery texture, refreshing properties and an exciting sensation of moisture craving, smooth taste without sweetness or bitterness, can be consumed continuously and competitively for a longer time. At the same time, they have a simple and quick way of opening to facilitate consumption and avoid distractions.
Finally, since the ingredients are stimulant-free, it can be combined with other gels or used during training sessions without stimulants, allowing the instruction to be fully adapted to the needs of athletes.
For all of the above, in sports that require carbohydrate consumption, these maltodextrin and fructose gels are a great choice.
Carbohydrate intake during exercise.
Combines fructose and glucose sources to increase your carbohydrate intake.
Mild taste without excessive bitterness or sweetness.
Smooth texture easy to consume.
Easy to open.
What dose to consume?
Adjust the dose according to your daily energy and nutritional needs. However, eating 30 to 90 grams of carbohydrates during exercise has been shown to improve sports performance in the medium and long term. So, if you need 30 g of carbohydrates per hour, you can take the gel.
