Why, How Much & When?
Science tells us that consuming 30-60 grams + of carbs per hour (even higher in ultra endurance activities), within a session, will enhance performance. Although it may feel early, this should be started in the very first hour, ideally 10-15 min pre start. We generally suggest 1-2 gels hourly on top of your electrolyte hydration but trial this in training and adjust to suit you.
PURE Energy Gels are designed to provide fast fuel during exercise in a no-fuss easy-to-use way. PURE gels have carbs in the form of maltodextrin, which is absorbed quickly and used as muscle fuel. Most sports gels on the market are hard to consume with their sticky consistency, taste artificial and can be sickly sweet making them difficult to use for long periods while training and racing.
PURE Fluid Energy Gels are made more fluid so they are easier and quick to consume on the go. with some gels. PURE Energy Gels are of a thicker, more traditional consistency, designed for snacking on, great for evenly spreading out your fuel intake.
Premium Natural Ingredients & Flavourings
We flavour our gels with natural flavourings like real fruit juices, concentrates and fruit purees, premium New Zealand honey, ground kola nut and real cinnamon, giving them a “real” flavour with no nasty after taste.
At PURE we focus on sports science and the nutrient quality of the ingredients we use and use only the best, highest quality, natural ingredients available. PURE Energy Gels are developed in-house allowing us to carefully test and refine our formulations, making sure that every flavour meets our high standards for taste and performance.
When used to fuel exercise, some carbohydrates can cause stomach upsets due to their slower digestion processes. Our gut-friendly formulations are designed to be easily digested and to quickly fuel muscles without upsetting your stomach.
