The Energy Gel + Caffeine is a gel with the crucial 2:1 ratio (a ratio containing twice as much glucose as fructose). Glucose (also known as dextrose or grape sugar) is the body’s most important energy generator. It’s a delicate ratio. With regular nutrition a person can consume up to about 60 grams of sugar per hour. With the 2:1 ratio between glucose and fructose, this can increase to 70 to 80 grams. As a result, the energy level of the body is a lot higher.
This specific Energy Gel + Caffeine has caffeine added to it, the equivalent of one cup of coffee. Athletes should take this caffeine gel towards the end of a workout or race. It will provide the perfect energy boost for when you want to put in a final sprint or tackle the final climb in a challenging tour or race.
Eurosport nutrition has deliberately opted for a so-called concentrated gel. This means that the substance of the gel is slightly “thicker” than many other gels to which water has been added. This way, Eurosport nutrition encourages athletes to keep the gel in their mouths for a longer period of time. This is essential, because it’s the saliva that absorbs the largest percentage of sugars. This will enhance the sports performance.
At Eurosport nutrition, health comes first. Therefore the Energy Gel + Caffeine consists of all natural ingredients. The main difference between Eurosport nutrition and many other brands is that it contains no artificial sweeteners. It does however contain a natural sweetener (stevia). Eurosport nutrition is made with fresh ingredients, which also means fresh fruit is added.
Easy to use: the squeezable packaging of the Energy Gel + Caffeine is slightly longer, allowing cyclists to quickly take the Energy Gel out of their back pockets.
