How Maurten Works

By the 1960's, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrates during exercise increased performance. The issue is that our stomachs don't cope well with simple sugars which can lead to GI distress.

Maurten launched a new type of sports fuel by utilizing hydrogels. Hydrogels have been used in the food industry for years, often as thickeners. Maurten found a way to build hydrogels with natural food ingredients and then figured out how to fill these three-dimensional structures with our body's preferred fuel source, carbohydrates.

By combining Alginate (a component of the cell walls from brown algae) and Pectin (a dietary fiber present in many fruits and vegetables), Maurten has created a pH-sensitive hydrogel which acts as a vehicle for carbohydrates. This enables a smooth transport of carbohydrates to the small intestine where they can be absorbed and utilized by working muscles.

With the use of hydrogel's, Maurten has increased the amount of carbs you can consume, reduced the risk of GI distress, and removed all unnecessary ingredients that don't positively impact your performance.

  • No artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or additives
  • Contains only what your body needs to perform
  • Formulated with natural ingredients
  • Allows you to consume nearly 2x the amount of carbs previously thought possible
  • Used for many PR's, Tour de France stage wins and Marathon records
