Energy Gel Ratio 2:1

Hydra-Max - Trisport Pharma


• Energy gel with a special composition of different sugars , called the RATIO 2:1 principle and refers to the relationship between the Glucose/Maltodextrin and the Fructose.
• Improves the endurance
• Can improve the performance by 8%.
• Contains, in contrast with most other gels, much electrolytes compensate the loss of sodium through transpiration.
• Contains 75 mg of caffeine to give u even better results during training or competition.


  • Scientifically research proves that the intake of sugars during exercise improves performance . The general advise form coaches, doctors and exercise physiologists is to take 60-70 grams of sugar per hour.
  • More than 70 gram of glucose/Maltodextrine per hour is useless because the body is not able to incorporate and transport the sugars to the muscles.
  • Recent research supports the intake of "multi transportable carbohydrates" which means that more energy can be released from the sugars and transported to the muscles. The glycogen stock in the muscles can be saved for the final in the race.
  • What does multi transportable carbohydrates mean? Fructose is transported through the GLUT-5 gate in the gut. Glucose and Maltodextrine is transported through the SGLT1 (sodium-glucose cotransporter 1)
    If the relation between the two types of sugar is 2:1, up to 90 grams per hour can be transported in the body and converted into energy.
  • A test in a time-trial resulted in an improvement up to 8% in performance with the use of this science.

Contains, in contrast with most other gels, lots of electrolytes to compensate the loss of sodium through transpiration.



  • Recent research has shown that caffeine can enhance performance levels. In general, it can be said that endurance training sessions can be continued longer through caffeine intake.
  • Possible working mechanism:
    1) Caffeine stimulates adrenaline secretion by the adrenal glands. As a result, free fatty acid oxidation increases due to the contracting muscles and this ultimately results in a glycogen‐sparing effect.
    2) Caffeine has a psychostimulating effect, through which the “pain threshold” can be extended.
    3) Caffeine stimulates the release of calcium reserves in the muscle cells, as a result of which the calcium can smooth the muscle contractions.
    4) In a recent study, published in J. Appl. Physiol. 2005, Prof A Jeukendrup et al. demonstrates that caffeine increases the exogenous carbohydrate oxidation, possibly through an improved intestinal absorption of the sugars.
  • Dose: The caffeine dose tested in properly conducted studies showing an improvement in the endurance levels, varies between 3 mg and 9 mg per kg of body weight.
    The conclusion of these studies is: “a caffeine dose of 3 mg/kg body weight has an ergogenetic effect. Higher doses usually do not deliver any added value”.
  • Important remark:
    1) Regular use of caffeine leads to habituation. Abstaining from caffeine consumption for one week can remove this habituation effect to a significant extent.
    2) Caffeine has a strongly diuretic effect when the body is at rest, but not during exercise. During exercise, the released catecholamines remove the diuretic effect of caffeine (Wemple et al., Int. J. Sport Med. 1997)
