Maurten sports drink is based on a new method of encapsulating carbohydrates and electrolytes. In a conventional sports drink, the carbohydrate concentration must remain relatively low because a higher concentration slows gastric emptying.
A drink with a lot of sugar leads to gastrointestinal distress, while the sugar is also absorbed with a great delay, as it only happens in the small intestine. For this reason, the usual sports drinks are therefore isotonic; they do not cause stomach upset, but also provide only a modest amount of carbohydrates; in fact, too little to expect a real boost from them.
In Maurten products, the carbohydrates - per formula in varying concentrations and ratios of glucose, fructose and maltodextrin - are packaged in pH-sensitive biopolymers. These dissolve only at a certain acidity level.
In the acidic stomach, the carbohydrates remain packed, so normal gastric emptying is not disrupted. The drink is passed through like water, so to speak. Once in the small intestine, the pH rises, at which point the polymer buffers release their concentrated load of carbohydrates. The small intestine can then absorb them effortlessly.
The result is that with each sip, the athlete quickly circulates a relatively large amount of carbohydrate without causing gastrointestinal distress. If you organize your intake smartly, you can refuel extra, readily available, energy at the crucial moments during long endurance efforts.
Mix the contents of one sachet with 500ml of water and mix until completely dissolved. Consume the Maurten drink mix 160 before, during and/or immediately after exercise.
