MAURTEN Sport drink is based on a new method to capture carbohydrates and electrolytes. In a conventional sports drink, the carbohydrate concentration must remain relatively low, because a higher concentration slows the stomach emptying.
A drink with a lot of sugar leads to stomach and intestinal complaints, while the sugar is also absorbed with great delay, because that only happens in the small intestine. For that reason, the usual sports drinks are isotone; They do not give stomach complaints, but also only deliver a modest amount of carbohydrates; Not enough to expect a real boost from.
In Maurten products, the carbohydrates-per formula in varying concentrations and proportions of glucose, fructose and maltodextrin-are packed in pH-sensitive biopolymers. They only dissolve with a certain acidity.
The carbohydrates remain packed in the acid stomach, so that normal gastric emptying is not disturbed. The drink is let through like water, say. Once in the small intestine, the pH rises, on which the polymer buffers reveal their concentrated load of carbohydrates. She can then absorb the small intestine effortlessly.
The result is that the athlete quickly brings a relatively large amount of carbohydrates into circulation with each sip, without it leading to stomach and intestinal complaints. If you organize the intake smart, you can refuel extra energy available at the crucial moments during long endurance efforts.
Mix the contents of a sachet with 500ml of water and mix it until it is completely dissolved. Consume the MAURTEN Beverage mix 320 before, during and/or immediately after the effort.
