Maurten GEL 100 CAF 100 (Box of 12)
A little packet of energy, Maurten's natural hydrogel has seven simple ingredients (no added colours, preservatives or flavours). Maintain peak performance throughout your marathon with 100mg of caffeine and 25 grams of carbohydrates per capsule.
Why Maurten GEL 100 CAF 100?
Maurten's patent-pending hydrogel technology enables the carbohydrate mix to pass smoothly into the intenstine to be absorbed. This is hugely important to anyone who experiences stomach cramps, or runs for the nearest little blue box during a race after consuming traditional carb-based gels. The texture is like jelly - not sticky liquid like most others.
There is as much caffeine as 1.5 expressos in each GEL, which is far more than most traditional gels. It also contains 25 grams of carbohydrates in a careful blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1), this little gel packs a high weight to energy ratio and doesn’t contain any added flavours, preservatives or colourants.
Improve Sports Performance
Caffeine has been shown to improve sports performance by promoting alertness and reducing perceived effort and pain. The GEL 100 CAF 100 can be used for building up caffeine levels – on its own, or together with regular coffee or other caffeine sources – or to achieve appropriate caffeine levels during running.
Higher uptake of carbohydrates
Our bodies can make use of about 60 grams of ingested carbohydrates per hour, in the form of glucose or maltodextrin (glucose polymer). If a 0.5:1 combination of fructose and glucose/maltodextrin is used, this uptake increases to up to 90 grams per hour, whilst increasing fructose content above 0.5:1 can enable an even higher uptake. Maurten's GEL 100 CAF 100 has a 0.8:1 ration of fructose-to-glucose. The GEL 100 CAF 100 can be used on its own during shorter runs, or combine it with other Maurten products for optimum fuelling on longer runs.
