Avoid bonking with a quality energy supply that’s
easy on the stomach and perfect for the heat

ELOAD Energy Gel is designed for performance in the heat, when the need for easily digestible carbohydrate is at its most and gastrointestinal (GI) function can be at its worst:
- All natural flavors
- Low relative sweetness
- Gentle on the stomach
- Perfect for the heat
- Rapidly absorbed
- Provide a quality energy supply
- 4:1 sodium:potassium ratio, matching those of electrolytes lost in sweat
- Prevents cramping and muscle fatigue

Take one packet every 15-60 minutes during activity depending on carbohydrate needs

Technical Information

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.

Carbohydrate in a gel should be rapidly absorbed and have excellent gastric emptying capabilities while having no resistant starch particles. ELOAD Energy Gel uses maltodextrin derived from a non-GMO ‘wazy’ corn amylopectin starch, which has a high GI. This allows for rapid absorption of all carbohydrate to permit glycogen sparing, essential for preventing “bonking”. It also ensures that there will be no resistant starch present in the large intestine to cause gastrointestinal upset, especially when exercising in the heat.
