Maurten Marathon Package (including Gel-100) package consists of 2x Maurten Drink Mix 320 sachets (80 grams KH per sachet) and 6x Maurten Gel-100 (25 grams KH per gel).
How do you implement this marathon plan? Take a 320 sachet once at breakfast or more than half an hour before the race. Dissolve the contents of the sachet in a bottle with 500ml of water and shake well until everything is dissolved. Take a Maurten Gel-100 every 6 to 7 kilometers during the race.
For optimal recovery it is recommended to take a Maurten 320 sachet immediately after the race after the race to recover (no longer than 45 min-1 hour after the race)
Mix the contents of the sachet with 500 ml of water and shake well until completely dissolved. Be careful. It is necessary to use the right quantities in order for the hydrogel technology to do its job. The contents are specially designed to be mixed with water with a calcium content of less than 40 mg / l. Higher calcium levels can affect the solution. You can consume the beverage before, during and / or after physical activity.
Amount of energy
Several studies have shown that our body can consume up to 90 grams of carbohydrates every hour. A 320 drink mix sachet from Maurten, with 500 ml water, contains 80 grams of carbohydrates. In the past, studies have shown that our body can absorb up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. Recent science, however, has shown that the glucose and fructose ratio of 0.8: 1 allows an even greater uptake - up to 100 grams per hour. The GEL 100 has been developed by using this optimal ratio and packing a lot of energy. One GEL 100 contains 25 grams of carbohydrates. So you can use up to four GEL 100 per hour for the maximum recording. We prefer to take 1 GEL 100 per 6-7 kilometers. Partly because not every runner is used to taking a large amount of gels while walking without getting problems with the stomach. Also the intake of 4 gels per hour gives a full feeling in the stomach that is not always pleasant.
How does Maurten work?
Drink Mix 320 from Maurten is a drink with an applied hydrogel technology. When the powder is mixed with water, a sports drink is made that contains a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. The sports drink immediately becomes a hydrogel as soon as it comes into contact with stomach acid. The hydrogel provides a fluid and fast transport of the beverage to the intestine. Where water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed quickly.
