Athletes have always struggled to fuel their bodies.
By the 1960s, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrate solutions during exercise increased performance. With a mixture of sugar, salts and lemonade, the first sports drink was born. But carbohydrate drinks can cause problems. Our stomachs don't cope well with high concentrations of sugar often resulting in slower gastric emptying and GI distress. Maurten has launched a new range of sports fuelsby harnessing hydrogel technology to develop carbohydrate-rich and natural sports drinks and energy gels that our bodies can tolerate.
With the use of hydrogel technology, Maurten has increased the amount of carbohydrates, reduced the risk of gastrointestinal problems, and removed all unnecessary ingredients that don't aid your performance.
The GEL is a hydrogel – a biopolymer matrix that holds carbohydrates, enabling a smoother transportation through the stomach to the intestine where they are absorbed. By combining sodium alginate and calcium carbonate under exact conditions, the hydrogel is born.
Did you know! The numbers included in Maurten product names are the amount of calories/caffiene contained in each product ? I.e. Gel 100 contains 100 calories, Gel 100 Caf 100 contains 100 calories and 100mg of caffiene.
