Exercise capacity and performance is often reduced when exercising in hot conditions due to both elevated physiological strain and feelings of thermal discomfort.
One of the main contributors to the early onset of fatigue in hot environments is enhanced feelings of discomfort and a perception of being hot and uncomfortable. With this in mind, Turbo+ Gel is formulated with menthol extract to improve the ability to tolerate such heat stress by reducing thermal perception through the refreshing and cooling sensations that menthol evokes.
Through these mechanisms, menthol consumption during exercise makes it easier to breathe and results in improvements in both time trial and time to exhaustion exercise performance.
In addition to its cooling effects, Turbo+ Gel is also formulated with a blend of caffeine, beta-alanine and L-carnitine so as to enhance performance during the high-intensity intervals that are typical of indoor turbo sessions. Caffeine enhances performance through its stimulatory effects on the central nervous system (CNS), whereas beta-alanine and L-carnitine facilitate improved muscle buffering. Collectively, all three ingredients have the ability to enhance exercise performance.
Who is Turbo+ Gel for?
