What we think
Maurten's world-record-setting 320 Drink Mix is now available in a Caffeinated version with 100mg of caffeine.
Not familiar? Maurten contains mixed carbohydrate sources to allow for optimal energy utilization, but it also contains the unique Hydrogel Technology that slows down the delivery of these nutrients to help prevent stomach issues and increase carb intake. In addition, this drink mix is high in sodium – an important electrolyte for fluid and nutrient delivery.
The addition of this caffeine creates all sorts of new fueling options for athletes.
- It's incredible for early morning training where you get up, grab your bottle, and go.
- It's a game-changer for competitions – continuously maintaining elevated caffeinated levels.
- It is the biggest unfair-yet-legal performance advantage in endurance sports.
What I love is that Maurten didn't add any acid, colorants, or flavors. Even better, Maurten's hydrogel technology hides the bitterness of the caffeine.
Caffeine has been shown to promote alertness and reduce perceived effort and pain. These are properties that can be beneficial in sports performance. The DRINK MIX 320 CAF 100 can be used for building up caffeine levels – on its own or together with other caffeine sources like coffee pre-training or along with Maurten Caffeinated Gel to achieve sufficient caffeine levels during activity.
Amount of Energy:
Studies have shown that our bodies can make use of up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. One DRINK MIX 320 CAF 100 sachet, mixed with 500 ml of water contains 80 grams of carbohydrates without any stomach distress. Many athletes are pushing well into the 100 grams per hour after gradually elevating their tolerance.
How does Maurten work?
When mixing DRINK MIX 320 CAF 100 with water you get a hydrogel sports drink containing a high concentration of carbohydrates and caffeine. The drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt, and carbohydrates are absorbed.
Instructions for Mixing:
Mix the content of each sachet with 500 ml of water and shake well until dissolved (30-60s). Be accurate, the functionality depends on the ratio don't add too much or too little water or the hydrogel won't form correctly. Consume within 24 hours, so you can make it the night before and have it ready for your early AM training session.
How to use it:
Use the DRINK MIX 320 CAF 100 on its own during shorter durations, or combine it with other Maurten products to ensure you have enough carbohydrates throughout your session. Your goal is to get to 90 or more grams of carbs per hour for maximum performance. But make sure you continue consuming this level of carbs throughout your entire workout.
