The Science of Fuel | Eload Sports Nutrition


Refuel your body and boost your energy
while you race.

Carbohydrates provide the perfect fuel for endurance activities because it is easily digested and quickly used by your body. Ingesting carbohydrates while you race can prevent early fatigue and injury.

Eload Energy Gel is scientifically formulated for endurance athletes to maximize the delivery of quick energy to your muscles to avoid “hitting the wall” or stop functioning as expected.

Carbohydrates are a primary fuel for long-distance or endurance sports because it is easily and quickly converted into energy. The faster and longer you race, the greater the proportion of carbohydrates your body will burn. The carbohydrates are stored as glycogen directly in the muscles and even with effective carb-loading, glycogen is in limited supply.
To prevent “bonking” or “hitting the wall,” it is recommended to consume carbohydrates during the endurance race.

Eload Energy Gel contains two types of carbohydrates — dextrose and maltodextrin.

Dextrose, the primary ingredient, is a high glycemic index carbohydrate, meaning that it is easy to digest and absorb, and enters your bloodstream quickly for uptake by the muscles cells.

Maltodextrin, the secondary carbohydrate source, is derived from waxy maize corn starch (amylopectin). It is free of resistant starch and is easily absorbed, which prevents stomach discomfort or upset while you race.

Electrolytes in Eload Energy Gel help replace what is lost in sweat. The ratios of electrolytes in the gel are designed to match the ratio of electrolytes in your body. Each packet of Eload Energy Gel contains a 4:1 ratio of sodium to potassium, which is equivalent to the average ratio of sodium to potassium that is lost in sweat.

Tastes Great and has everything you need to optimize performance.
While participating in endurance sports, sweet flavors are intensified and can become nauseating. Eload Energy Gel uses maltodextrin to provide a readily available carbohydrate source with relatively low sweetness. Our gels use all-natural flavours enhance the taste, so you avoid gastrointestinal upset during endurance exercise.

Optimize your performance and get a boost of energy while you race with Eload Energy Gel.
