Why consider using a 45g dose of carbohydrates?


Athletes often aim to ingest 90-120g of carbohydrates per hour during "ultra" endurance events. With carbohydrate servings as low as 20-30g, athletes often have difficulty reaching the 90-120g goal.

Instead, the ULTRA GEL provides 45g servings. Thus, a dose of 90g does not require more than 2 gels per hour.

By adding an additional 30g via the extensive 2:1 CARB MIX 6D product line, the upper limits of carbohydrate intake (120g/hour) during exercise can be easily achieved.

Why use a 1:1 glucose to fructose ratio (CARB MIX)?

Oral carbohydrates are absorbed in the intestine. The intestinal absorption capacity of glucose is ±60 g per hour, while that of fructose is at least ±30 g per hour. Therefore, after adequate bowel training, most individuals are able to ingest 90 grams per hour using the 6D 2:1 CARB MIX product line.

However, the current trend among endurance athletes is to push the rate of carbohydrate intake during exercise to the upper limit of gastrointestinal absorption capacity by ingesting up to 120 grams per hour. Research results have proven the feasibility of this approach, but the fraction of fructose in the carbohydrate mix should preferably be increased from a 2:1 ratio to a 1:1 ratio. Indeed, exceeding the glucose absorption limit (60g per hour) predisposes to gastrointestinal problems. That's why we developed the ULTRA GEL in a 1:1 ratio.

Combining 2 ULTRA GELS with a 30g serving of carbohydrates from 6D 2:1 CARB MIX supplements ultimately yields a 1:0,8 CARB MIX at a total intake rate of 120g carbohydrates per hour. ULTRA GEL therefore ideally complements the wide range of sports drinks, gels and energy bars in the 6D 2:1 CARB MIX range, offering even more flexible solutions for optimal carbohydrate intake during exercise.

How to use : 

Ingest 1 to 2 gels per hour depending on the duration and intensity of the exercise and the possible combination with other sources of carbohydrates.

Designed to be combined with other 6d products containing a 2:1 carbohydrate mix to achieve a carbohydrate intake rate of 90-120g per hour. We recommend ingesting water at the same time as 6d ULTRA GEL to offset the high carbohydrate (sugar) and sodium content, thereby aiding digestion and reducing the incidence of gastrointestinal symptoms.
