This gel is infused with an advanced electrolyte complex derived from Ocean Minerals. These minerals are sourced naturally from seawater, providing you with a refreshing boost of magnesium and over 70 essential minerals and trace elements. By incorporating this invigorating blend, we aim to help you maintain optimal electrolyte balance during your athletic pursuits.

Not only does the Energy Gel with Slow Release Carbs offer exceptional performance benefits, but it has also been developed and rigorously tested in collaboration with BORA – hansgrohe, our esteemed partner in the field of professional cycling. By subjecting the gel to the most demanding real-world conditions, we ensure its effectiveness and reliability when it matters most.

In the words of Lennard Kämna from BORA – hansgrohe, "I really like that the electrolytes are natural. The products also taste refreshing." This endorsement underscores the positive experience of athletes who have experienced the refreshing taste and natural ingredients of our Energy Gel.

How does it work?

The Energy Gel with Slow Release Carbs works by utilizing a unique combination of ingredients to provide sustained energy and support optimal performance during endurance exercise. The key component of this gel is Isomaltulose, a slowly digested carbohydrate with a low glycemic index (GI). When consumed, Isomaltulose is broken down gradually, resulting in a more controlled release of glucose into the bloodstream. This slow and steady release of glucose provides a sustained source of energy, preventing rapid spikes in blood sugar levels and avoiding the subsequent insulin response that is often associated with other sugar-containing gels. As a result, athletes experience a more stable and prolonged supply of fuel, enabling them to sustain their energy levels for extended periods during physical activities.

Additionally, the Energy Gel with Slow Release Carbs is fortified with an advanced electrolyte complex derived from Ocean Minerals. Electrolytes, such as magnesium, play a crucial role in maintaining proper hydration, muscle function, and electrolyte balance in the body. During endurance exercise, electrolytes are lost through sweat, and their replenishment becomes essential to prevent fatigue and cramping. By incorporating the Ocean Minerals electrolyte complex, this gel provides an invigorating hit of magnesium and over 70 minerals and trace elements. These natural minerals sourced from seawater help athletes restore and balance their electrolyte levels, optimizing performance and reducing the risk of dehydration and muscle-related issues.
