If you are an endurance athlete who regularly trains and competes in events more than 90 minutes in duration, then you’ll probably know that trying to fuel for long-distance events, means taking on board more than just water.

Many endurance athletes use gel packs for an energy boost. They energise you during activity with carbohydrates and electrolytes. But, not all energy gels taste the same: some of them upset the stomach; some of them are hard to swallow, and some gels just aren’t palatable.

CarboSHOTZ energy gels, electrolyte tablets and energy bars have one unifying feature – they have all been tested and developed under extreme conditions to ensure that they are totally usable during intense activity.

Studies have shown that we become highly sensitive to taste after extensive exercise. As a result, what tasted good at the beginning of exercise will, two-plus hours later, taste sickly sweet and become unpalatable.

SHOTZ has a unique formula which tastes better and is more effective the longer you train or compete. When we eat even the most simple foods blood is redirected to the stomach to process, using vital time and energy. What differentiates the carboSHOTZ energy gel is that it is low in sugar, is gluten-free and does not contain any fructose.

This means that SHOTZ sports nutrition can deliver the right combination of complex carbohydrate and minerals, but in a format that can be swallowed easily. Unlike other products that might taste nice but lack any real efficacy, SHOTZ nutrition products taste great and have a carefully balanced mix of carbohydrate, vitamins and electrolytes that can fuel you through the most demanding of events.
