ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL contains maltodextrin, which is a glucose polysaccharide that is obtained by hydrolysis of starch from different plants. Maltodextrin is the reason ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL has an osmolarity similar to that of blood (that is why it is said to be isotonic), which contributes to gastric emptying and rapid absorption. In addition, its glycaemic index is high, which means that blood glucose levels rise rapidly when ingested.
These characteristics make ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL an ideal source of immediate energy before, during and after exercise.
Isotonic Drinks or Isotonic Gels? When to take Isotonic Drink or Isotonic Energy Gel?
Isotonic drinks such as ISOTONIC DRINK have different sugars, minerals and vitamins in their composition. By providing sodium, they prevent the appearance of hyponatremia during exercise that can cause nausea, vomiting and disorientation. In general, isotonic drinks replenish the fluids and electrolytes that are lost during exercise due to perspiration, thus avoiding dehydration. For their part, energy gels such as ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL are characterised by having a high concentration of carbohydrates.
They are very practical to carry during training, but especially during competitions, since they can be consumed without the need for water. Due to their high content of carbohydrates, they are an immediate source of energy that is easy to digest and assimilate.
Can I also use Isotonic Energy Gel after training?
Definitely yes. You can use ISOTONIC ENERGY GEL whenever you need a quick post-workout recovery as it is an excellent source of carbohydrates to replenish your body's glycogen stores.
