Sophisticated isotonic sports drink to optimise performance during high-intensity exercise. Competition contains five different and complex sources of carbohydrates, highly concentrated amino acids that act as a 2nd fuel source and promote within-workout recovery, and B vitamins to optimise your energy metabolism. Perform at your best when it matters most!
ENDURANCE SUPPORT DURING HIGH-INTENSITY EXERCISE
Rehydration and refuelling become more difficult during high-intensity exercise. Reduced blood flow to your digestive system in favour of better blood supply to working muscles impairs the fluid and fuel uptake in your gut. Sports drinks high in carbohydrates slow down your rate of water absorption during high-intensity exercise. Competition finds a way around this problem, thanks to an isotonic sodium formula for efficient rehydration and a dual fuel approach of i) complex carbohydrates in tolerable amounts and ii) highly-concentrated amino acids. Together both fuels provide enough energy to support high intensity endurance efforts without impairing fluid uptake.
SUSTAINED ENERGY RELEASE WITHOUT BLOOD SUGAR SPIKES
Competition's PENTACARB formula of five different and complex sources of carbohydrates provides a steady, long-lasting energy supply. During high-intensity exercise, the highly concentrated amino acids act as a secondary fuel source as they are are slowly converted into glucose (gluconeogenesis) in the liver. The steady release of energy helps reduce spikes in insulin and blood sugar, keeping your energy levels constant when it matters most!
B VITAMINS and TREHALOSE OPTIMISE YOUR ENERGY METABOLISM
B vitamins act as important co-factors in your body's energy metabolism and optimise your energy production. Trehalose, one of the components of our PENTACARB formula, not only acts as a slow-release sugar, it also helps stabilise and protect the enzymes of your energy metabolism and your membranes from harmful waste products generated during high-intensity exercise, allowing your muscle cells to perform at maximum capacity for longer.
WITHIN- AND POST-WORKOUT RECOVERY
Competition's amino acids not only act as a fuel source, they are also available for within-workout recovery processes and help prevent muscle breakdown, particularly important in long-distance events like marathons and triathlons. Competition also makes a great recovery drink after exercise. The amino acids provide urgently needed building blocks for tissue repair and muscular development, while the carbohydrates help refuel your body's glycogen stores. Get ready for your next race!
