Maurten Gel 100 Caf 100 Energy Gel, for before and during. Maurten reference: MA00023

Energy encapsulated in a natural hydrogel. Each Gel contains 100mg of caffeine and 25 grams of carbohydrates. Made with 7 ingredients - no colourings, no preservatives or added flavours.

GEL 100 CAF 100 contains 100 mg of caffeine, which is the equivalent of 1.5 espressos, or a cup of brewed coffee. That's a lot, compared to many of the traditional gels already out there. Delivers 25 grams of carbohydrates through a unique combination of fructose and glucose (0.8:1 ratio) that allows the absorption of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour. It has a high weight to energy ratio and contains no added flavors, preservatives or colorings. Like all our products, it is suitable for vegans.

Take GEL 100 CAF 100 alone for shorter periods, or combine it with other Maurten products to ensure you have enough energy during your training or competition.

WHY CAFFEINE?

Caffeine has been shown to increase alertness and reduce perceived exertion. These are properties that can be beneficial in sports performance. GEL 100 CAF 100 can be consumed to increase caffeine levels, alone, along with regular coffee, or to achieve sufficient caffeine levels during activity.

AMOUNT OF ENERGY

Studies have shown that our bodies can use up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. Recent science has shown that the 0.8:1 ratio of fructose to glucose allows for even greater absorption – up to 100 grams per hour. GEL 100 is developed using this ratio and contains a lot of energy. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.

GEL 100 CAF 100 - HOW TO TAKE

Developing a nutritional strategy for races or sessions is key and complex. Everyone is different, and the rate of absorption and metabolization of caffeine varies from one athlete to another. There are two key factors that are important to consider: your body weight and whether you are accustomed to caffeine. Science suggests an intake of 3 mg of caffeine per kilogram of body mass to aid performance. But again, it's highly individual. We have developed some general guidelines on how to use GEL 100 CAF 100, based on our own findings and scientific literature.

DURATION <1 HOUR

This strategy would require 1 GEL 100 CAF 100.

BEFORE: A beneficial level of caffeine can be achieved by consuming around 200 mg before activity. This can be achieved by consuming a cup of coffee, in the hours before the event, and a GEL 100 CAF 100 during the warm-up. You can reach the caffeine level by consuming two GEL 100 CAF 100, but the total amount of carbohydrates is a little excessive for a short activity.

DURATION <2 HOURS

This strategy would require 2 or 3 GEL 100 CAF 100 gels.

BEFORE: Try to consume 200 mg of caffeine before activity. That translates to consuming two GEL 100 CAF 100. For an event that lasts approximately two hours, having two GEL 100 CAF 100 is a convenient way to increase caffeine levels and refuel carbohydrate levels at the same time. Remember that a GEL 100 CAF 100 contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.

DURING: Approximately thirty minutes after the activity, consume another GEL 100 CAF 100 to ensure you keep your caffeine levels sustained. Don't forget to replenish carbohydrates. Aim for 30-60 grams of carbohydrates every hour.

DURATION > 2 HOURS

This strategy would require a minimum of 3 units (depending on the duration) of GEL 100 CAF 100.

BEFORE: Consume two GEL 100 CAF 100 during the hours before the event. At the beginning you will have already reached an intake of 200 mg of caffeine and 50 grams of carbohydrates.

DURING: Approximately thirty minutes into the activity, consume another GEL 100 CAF 100 to ensure you keep your caffeine levels sustained. Remember to consume a GEL 100 CAF 100 every two hours to maintain caffeine levels. Don't forget to replenish carbohydrates, either by using GEL 100, drinking Drink Mix 160 or Drink Mix 320. It's ambitious, but aim for an intake of around 60 - 90 grams of carbohydrates every hour.

Remember, these guidelines are simplified and should only be used as a general rule. Caffeine is not for everyone. If you are unsure or pregnant, consult a doctor. And always keep in mind that there is no point in increasing your caffeine intake. It can never compensate for training and excessive consumption will not help you.
