SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN 2:1 CARBOHYDRATE RATIO: 30g simple to 15g complex carbohydrates, allowing for the maximum carbohydrate intake of 90g per hour, increasing water uptake by 60%, gut-friendly causing no stomach distress
190KCAL PER GEL: we recommend two gels per hour for a total of 380kcal and 90g carbohydrates, ideal for long-distance endurance events. You may also alternate between one Elite Gel and one Elite Drink Mix per hour, for the same kcal and carbohydrate intake
BETA-ALANINE & SODIUM BICARBONATE: Beta-Alanine increases skeletal muscle carnosine levels, this supports the maintenance of acid-base balance, delays fatigue, and improves exercise performance. Sodium Bicarbonate helps neutralize acid build-up in the muscles, thereby reducing fatigue and increasing endurance.
ELECTROLYTES: a key variable in determining sports performance as they mediate the constant transport of nutrients, enzymes, and water in and out of cells, including Chloride which works closely with Sodium to regulate the body-water balance
FORMULATED BY ENDURANCE ATHLETES: Unived endurance fuel products are formulated by endurance athletes, used by some of the Worlds best elite athletes, and have fuelled countless adventures, course records, and major race wins
