What is it?
SUSTAIN is a carbohydrate and electrolyte drink, with a light natural flavour, for fuelling and hydration during prolonged exercise. SUSTAIN makes use of multiple transportable carbohydrates in a 0.8:1 ratio of Fructose to Maltodextrin shown to provide the ultimate carbohydrate uptake during high intensity endurance exercise, whilst minimising gastrointestinal distress. (1).
We have also put a lot of effort into tuning our lemon and lime flavour which we think makes SUSTAIN one of the best tasting natural fuelling drinks on the market!
What's in it?
SUSTAIN contains a unique blend of multiple transportable carbohydrates and electrolytes. SUSTAIN has been formulated using the latest considered optimum combination of 0.8:1 Fructose:Maltodextrin to provide you with the ultimate delivery of carbohydrate, during prolonged exercise, whilst remaining easy on the stomach (1).
SUSTAIN also includes sodium (480mg per 65.5g serving), sourced from salt and sodium citrate as well as specific inclusions of potassium, calcium and magnesium. Electrolytes are of vital importance before, during and after high intensity endurance activity due to their role in retaining water but most importantly, maintaining muscular contraction and thus exercise performance (2).
* Per 65.5g x 750ml serving
