Energy in the Moment

In sports that involve a prolonged effort it is common to decrease blood sugar to values ​​that compromise the performance and even the athlete’s health. This decrease is characterized by both physical and mental fatigue.

Made thinking about the requirements of long-lasting modalities, Extreme Fluid Gel is a combination of fast-absorbing carbohydrates, which are designed to maintain stable blood sugar values and prevent premature fatigue.

To aid in this function certain branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) have been added, which help in reducing the muscle damage associated with exercise. In addition, it increases fatigue resistance (decreasing accumulation of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in central fatigue) and increases the use of lipids as a source of energy during exercise. When they are ingested, they move to the muscles where they are oxidized to provide additional energy, which results in a decrease in the use of hepatic glycogen and thus promotes the postponement of fatigue.

And for you to concentrate more on the test and less on the gel, these have a super fluid consistency to facilitate the ingestion!
