The Unived Gel is a sports energy gel that provides the energy and endurance support that you need – in a highly palatable, easily digestible, and extremely portable gel packet.
We have been producing Endurance Gels since 2015 and our gels have received World recognition among the running & ultra-running community, well known for their water-based lightness, fresh taste, and easy to consume consistency. Unlike other thicker gels which typically require water to wash them down and get them out of your throat, our gels are light and just thin enough to go down without any additional support.
The gel packet fits in easily with the rest of your gear, and can be conveniently carried along in a hydration pack, waist pouch, or short pockets.
Carbohydrate Energy Boost
As an endurance athlete, you need high-quality energy, and you need it NOW. The Unived Gel packs in non-GMO Dextrose & Maltodextrin, high-GI carbohydrates that are instantly available to the body to be broken down for fast releasing energy. These carbs rapidly travel to your blood, correcting the glucose deficit in the blood stream and infusing you with a renewed source of energy to dip into. With these energy-dense carbohydrates, the Unived Gel prevents sugar crashes and bonking. Both of these are high quality carbohydrates, which means you get prime, nutrient-rich calories.
Hydration is a major factor in determining performance, which in turn, is regulated by blood glucose levels. As the Unived Gel maintains blood glucose levels, optimal hydration levels are available to your body at all times during activity.
Beta-alanine is the rate limiting precursor to carnosine, an endogenous intracellular (muscle) buffer, and one of the immediate defences against the accumulation of protons in the contracting musculature during exercise (Lancha Junior et al., 2015). Carniosone (B-alanyl-L-histidine) is a dipeptide found in muscle tissue that acts as an intramuscular buffer of Hydrogen ions.
Beta-Alanine increases skeletal muscle carnosine levels, this supports the maintenance acid-base balance, delay fatigue, and improve exercise performance.
Caffeine is a magical ingredient that enhances sports performance. It is proven to reduce perceived effort, increase mental alertness, enhance focus, and boost performance. Caffeine boosts mental acuity, keeping you sharp and focused on your workout. Caffeine can also help use fat as fuel, sparing your glycogen and extending endurance.
Our Dark Chocolate Mint flavour has 35mg caffeine, Cocoa Choco flavour has 50mg and Espresso Cappuccino flavour has 100mg caffeine.
Electrolytes to Re-Hydrate
Electrolytes are a key variable in determining sports performance as they mediate the constant transport of nutrients, enzymes, and water in and out of cells. These precious nutrients are the first casualty of exercise, as they are easily lost via sweat and urine. Our energy gel has been designed around your physiology, to recharge you with the major electrolytes that will give you strategic performance gains, no matter what your activity.
Refueling with sodium and chloride redirects precious fluids to your cells and major tissues, eliminating mid-activity cramps, nausea, fatigue, and stomach distress. A sodium top-up prevents the ‘gut bomb’ affect (vomiting during races) and ‘hyponatremia’ (nausea, fatigue, confusion) during long distances.
The Unived Gel is the first sports gel in India with chloride and magnesium in its formulation. Chloride works closely with sodium to regulate the body-water balance, helping you retain water better. It also limits the amount of precious hydration reserves lost to sweat and urine, and maintains the necessary volume of fluids in your blood.
Magnesium is gaining prominence as a factor in influencing mid-race performance. Deficiency can result in a sub-optimal performance, as magnesium is important for the proper transmission of nerve impulses, muscular contraction, and energy production processes. Magnesium can also have a direct impact on the utilization of sodium, potassium, and calcium by the muscles. The longer and more intense your exercise, the faster the depletion of magnesium levels through sweat and urine. This depletion, if not corrected, can cause muscle cramping, irregular heart rate, and fatigue.
Magnesium is not naturally produced by the body, and is only obtained through food sources like green leafy vegetables or fortified cereal – which are foods that you cannot feasibly consume during your activity- making supplementation all the more essential. Unlike leading sports gels in the market, the Unived Gel has been designed to be a source of magnesium. One sachet of Unived Gel supplies you with 20mg of magnesium, ensuring that the levels are adequate for proper muscle function, and that your body does not leech its precious magnesium reserves.
Unived Gel also helps you load up on potassium, a major electrolyte that works closely with sodium and chloride in maintaining hydration, and in generating electrical impulses in the nerves and muscles, including the heart. This translates to better muscle performance, even at the stage when you have already logged in several miles.
