Etixx Ginseng & Guarana Energy Gel 50 g Red Currant Cherry
The main fuel for prolonged and intense resistance events are carbohydrates and therefore the amount of carbohydrates that is stored in the body is one of the main determinants of performance. As such, it is important that carbohydrate stores be maximized before endurance exercise and that during prolonged exercise where these can be depleted, additional carbohydrate is consumed to maintain performance and avoid fatigue. Carbohydrate consumption will help maintain blood glucose levels and replenish muscle glycogen. If carbohydrates are not consumed, muscle glycogen will be depleted after approx. 90 minutes of exercise and severe fatigue may appear. The amount of carbohydrates you should take during exercise will depend on the duration of your training or competition.
Exercises <1h: it is not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise
Exercises 1-2h: 30 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (1 energy gel)
Exercises 2-3h: 60 g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise (2 energy gels)
Exercises 2.5-3h: up to 90g of carbohydrates per hour of exercise. (Up to 3 energy gels)
Ginseng & Guarana Energy Gel contains a unique blend of sugar consisting of high-speed sugars (glucose and maltose), semi-slow sugars (sucrose) and slow sugars (complex sugars). This is what we call? Triple action effect? (three phase sugars) that offers a fast charge of energy, and also provides energy more sustainably for a long period of time. In addition, glucose and fructose use different transport systems when they are absorbed into the body. This means that in total more carbohydrates can simultaneously enter the bloodstream when glucose and fructose are consumed together in comparison when only one of the two sugars is consumed. The Energy Gel is a high concentrate in the form of sugar, which translates into large amounts of fuel. To get the same amount of carbohydrates in an energy drink you would have to drink large amounts of fluid that would increase the likelihood of gastrointestinal upset. It also does not contain added nutrients such as protein or fat that can slow stomach emptying. And not only that, but also the Etixx Ginseng & Guarana Energy Gel will be ideal for those key moments, when it really matters and you need an extra boost. It provides us with extra energy, fruit of the unique combination of sugars and a true mental and physical impulse of Ginseng and Guarana. Guarana is a berry that contains high concentrations of natural caffeine. It is a well-known fact that the intake of caffeine has a positive effect on concentration and alertness. Who will benefit from Gel Etixx Ginseng & Guarana Energy? The Etixx Ginseng & Guarana Energy Gel is suitable for all athletes who need to quickly replenish their energy with carbohydrates during prolonged exercise. Therefore, it is ideal to consume immediately before or during prolonged endurance events such as cycling, triathlons and marathons. The added caffeine of guarana makes it particularly suitable for situations within these events where an additional boost is needed, ie a port climb or key cost in the race or a sprint finish. In addition, it can also be useful for team sports athletes to consume during rest periods.
