While most of us understand the importance of ingesting carbohydrate during endurance exercise to maximise energy and optimise performance, we often fail to achieve the amount necessary leading to glycogen depletion, commonly known as "bonking". This can be detrimental to both the health and performance of an athlete.
As it is needed to fuel muscles, supply glucose to the brain and burn fat, glycogen is the limiting fuel for exercise. To prevent glycogen depletion, ingestion of 1.0 to 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per minute is recommended at least by 60-90 minutes of endurance activity.
But it's always hard to pack and carry sufficient food for longer events - multiple packs and products can be bulky and add unwelcome extra weight.

Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrate in the human body and we have only a limited storage capacity for it.
Glycogen is the limiting fuel for exercise. It is needed to fuel muscles, supply glucose to the brain and burn fat.
To prevent glycogen depletion, ingestion of 1.0 to 1.2 grams/min is recommended at least by 60-90 minutes of endurance activity.
Carbohydrates with higher GI (glycemic index) are the preferred fuel during exercise because they are absorbed more rapidly from the small intestine for delivery into the blood stream. This provides an alternate source of carbohydrate and allows for sparing of glycogen stores so that the intensity and duration of activity can be sustained.
Polysaccharide used as a primary substrate for carbohydrate should be rapidly absorbed and have excellent gastric emptying capabilities while including no resistant starch particles.
The high GI value of the maltodextrin used in ELOAD Fly allows for rapid absorption of all carbohydrate to permit glycogen sparing, essential for preventing "bonking".
ELOAD Fly uses a maltodextrin derived from a non-GMO Waxy maize corn starch, which has 100% amylopectin content. It also ensures that there will be no amylase derived resistant starch present in the large intestine to cause gastrointestinal upset when exercising in the heat.
Carbohydrate is the body's primary fuel source during exercise. ELOAD Fly supplies only carbohydrate for the body without the addition of any unnecessary nutrients such as fat and protein
