The best part is that Maurten is for everyone. While it is a big advantage for Pro Athletes, it is a HUGE advantage for everyday athletes. Providing you the fuel so that you have the same energy and power at the end of your workout than you did at the beginning.
Maurten is sports fuel reinvented and, simply put - We are HUGE fans of if. This revolutionary carbohydrate-rich hydration mix is widely used by the best marathoners and cyclists in the world.
It gently combines two crucial elements for you to use during your run or ride: A high concentration of energy and carbs are encapsulated in a unique hydrogel technology, allowing for smooth transport of carbs into the intestine where they are absorbed. This reduces the risk of experiencing stomach issues by introducing the nutrients at a rate that your digestive tract can keep up with.
Keep a close eye on how you mix it as 17oz (500ml) is the appropriate amount of water required for the hydrogel to form properly and to use this fuel source to its full potential.
Mix Maurten Drink Mix 160 or 320 with water, and you’ll have a liquid sports drink containing high concentrations of maltodextrin and fructose. The drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach, encapsulating the carbohydrates. The hydrogel then enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
Feed's Fave: Drink Mix 160 is ideal for cycling and moderate exertion levels. Use Drink Mix 320 for longer intense workouts including marathon training.
How We Use It
If you like calorie drink mixes, this is the BEST option to try on all intensity workouts. Be careful on the amount of water you use and pay attention to that detail. 17oz or 500ml is the amount you are looking for. The mix is designed to be mixed with water with <40mg/L calcium content. Higher levels can affect how it's dissolved. Maurten is careful to say that the functionality of this ratio is key for it to work well. Also, make sure you shake well until the solution dissolves. Drink it before, during and/or after your activity.
