Description

The PowerBar PowerGel Original is PowerBar's classic energy booster. The PowerGel Original Gels contain a high dose of carbohydrates. The carbohydrates come from different sources, allowing you to push your limits.

The PowerGel Original is based on PowerBar's Dual Carb Mix. This 2:1 glucose:fructose ratio enables a maximum carb absorption rate of up to 90 grams an hour. Sports nutrition that uses only glucose can provide a maximum rate of 60 grams per hour. In addition, the PowerGel Original contain approximately 200 milligrams of sodium per gel. Sodium supports a regular moisture intake and balance.

What sets apart the PowerBar PowerGel as well is the innovative packaging. The 'Trash Chain' prevents you from losing the tearable strip when opening the packaging. This makes the PowerBar gels environmentally friendly as well.

Note: The PowerGel Black Currant contains 50 milligrams of caffeine per gel.

Detailed product description

Recommended use: Take one gel 30 minutes before a short, intense exercise or take one to two gels an hour during exercise. It's advised to consume no more than 3 gels a day.

Recommended dosage: Exhausting carbohydrate supplies during exercise is one of the main causes of fatigue. Replenishing carbohydrates before and during exercise can improve your (cycling) performance. If the exertion lasts more than 90 minutes, it's recommended to consume extra carbohydrates. A common strategy is to consume energy gels during the more intense phases of exercise. The digestion process of energy gels requires less intense circulation compared to other sports nutrition.

Warning: Contains caffeine (50 mg per gel). Not recommended for children and pregnant women. This nutrition supplement is not suited for people below the age of 18. A dietary supplement is not a substitute for a varied diet. In addition to physical activity, it is important to follow a varied and balanced diet and lead a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended dosage. If you are on a special diet or on medication, it is always safe to ask your doctor for advice. Do not use this product structurally in the long term without seeking medical advice.

Storage advice: Store in a cool and dry place (15-22ºC). Keep out of the reach of children.
