ENDURANCE SUPPORT DURING HIGH-INTENSITY EXERCISE
Refuelling can 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 fuel uptake in your gut, resulting in stomach discomfort if the carbohydrate concentration of a gel is too high. Our Energy Competition gels find a way around this problem thanks to a dual fuel strategy 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 causing gastrointestinal discomfort.
SUSTAINED ENERGY RELEASE WITHOUT BLOOD SUGAR SPIKES
The dual fuel strategy of multiple carbohydrates and amino acids provides a steady, long-lasting energy supply. During high-intensity exercise, Energy Competition's 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 lows in blood sugar, keeping your energy levels constant when it matters most!
Our Energy 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, which is particularly important in long-distance events like marathons, cycling races and triathlons or during extensive training sessions. Just keep going and going...!
B VITAMINS OPTIMISE YOUR ENERGY METABOLISM
B vitamins act as important co-factors in your body's energy metabolism and optimise your energy production. They are also essential for cell regeneration and recovery and make a great, synergistic addition to any serious competition gel.
CAFFEINE HELPS YOU DELIVER PEAK PERFORMANCE
In addition to amino acids and B vitamins, we include caffeine in our Cola flavoured gels to help you maintain your mental focus and skill level. Caffeine also lowers your perceived effort and pain perception, which allows you to push that little bit harder so you can truly reach your peak performance levels!
