Carbohydrates are the most important source of energy during intensive exercise. Due to the body's limited storage capacity for carbohydrates, it is recommended to provide carbohydrates through food during (intensive) exercise of 60 minutes or more.
Le 6D ENERGY GEL contains 30g of carbohydrates in a 2:1 ratio of glucose to fructose. Thanks to this 2:1 ratio, the body can absorb up to 90 g of carbohydrates per hour. Unlike most other gels, this gel also contains 200mg of sodium. Adding sodium quickly replenishes salt stores in the body. This is particularly important for athletes who not only sweat a lot, but also expel a lot of salts, and especially when exercising in a hot environment which leads to significant sweat losses.
In summary, the 6D ENERGY GEL is the ideal choice during prolonged endurance exercise (≥2 hours), especially in a hot and/or humid environment.
How to use :
Use 1-3 gels per hour of exercise, depending on duration and intensity of exercise.
Due to the high concentration of carbohydrates (sugars) and sodium, it is recommended to always use 6d ENERGY GEL in combination with water. This is to ensure proper absorption and to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal upset during exercise.
