THE MOST VERSATILE SPORTS AND HYDRATION DRINK
THE MOST VERSATILE SPORTS AND HYDRATION DRINK
Carbohydrates are the primary fuel source for the body and brain to fully function properly. The majority of carbohydrates in sports drinks (i.e., sucrose, maltodextrin, etc.) are readily available for breakdown and uptake because they deliver fast energy. This spike in energy is followed by a rapid drop in blood sugar. Consumers today are looking for a beverage that provides steady energy that keeps them going for longer periods of time without the crash.
The functional carbohydrate Palatinose™ provides the body with the same amount of carbohydrates as other sports beverages as well as some sodas BUT, thanks to its low glycemic structure, it’s released much slower.
Unlike other sports and hydration beverages and sodas with fast acting carbohydrates (i.e., cane sugar, sucrose, maltodextrin), Palatinose does not block fat burning. This is ideal for individuals who have a weight loss goal but also for the athlete with an interest in improving endurance activity to reduce the use of carbohydrate.
Athletes of all ages and abilities finally have a beverage that can solve their energy needs pre-game, at half-time, and even post event. Not only will using Liquid Fuel provide sustained energy but research has demonstrated athletes consuming a low glycemic beverage containing Palatinose had more stable blood glucose profile and higher fat oxidation during exercise which resulted in improved cycling performance in a time trial.
