Maltodextrin used in isolation has been proven to be considerably more effective than glucose used in isolation because of its lower osmolality in the gut. However, recent research* has compared traditional ‘maltodextrin only’ formulations with a 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose blend and the results are nothing short of staggering. For a comprehensive background to this research and for clear information on how to use TORQ gel in combination with other TORQ products.
The texture of the TORQ gel is light and syrupy. It doesn’t stick to your mouth and you don’t need water to wash it down. We have deliberately designed this gel to be easy to consume when you are on the move
Electrolytes: TORQ Gel contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.
Guarana: We have 6 gels which are caffeine-free, but the Forest Fruits and Banoffee gels both contain 89mg of caffeine delivered via natural guarana. Caffeine is a psychological stimulant, so aids concentration when extra help is needed. Caffeine consumption during exercise can help to lubricate the central nervous system to increase muscular power and efficiency as well as mobilising fat as a fuel source, helping to spare glycogen (your carbohydrate reserves).
