FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why use Supernatural Fuel?
WHAT ARE SUPERNATURAL FUEL POUCHES USED FOR?
Supernatural Fuel pouches have been designed for endurance sports (long distance triathlons, ultra distance running and cycling events, adventure racing etc) and, in particular, for times during endurance races when eating becomes difficult due to gastro intestinal problems. The pouches are made from blended plant ingredients which provide a natural mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fats that are easily digestible on the move. They are not designed to be a total fuel solution for an endurance race or event but to supplement other natural foods consumed at feeding stations or carried by competitors – they come into their own when eating becomes more difficult.
IS SUPERNATURAL FUEL ONLY FOR ENDURANCE ATHLETES?
No. Anyone can eat Supernatural Fuel pouches as they are simply a blend of whole foods from plants. They are useful for any outdoor activity to keep energy level replenished including: cycling, running, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, paddle boarding, skiing etc. They can also be consumed pre, during or post gym workout, although our ethos is to promote outdoor activity
WHEN & HOW MUCH SHOULD I EAT?
Supernatural Fuel pouches are designed to be eaten pre, during and post races. They comprise different energy and nutritional content therefore there’s no direct answer to how much an individual should eat and it depends on an individual’s size and the type of exercise being undertaken. As a guide, optimally you can absorb 1g of carbohydrate for every kg of body weight over a one hour period during moderate/high intensity training.
