Maurten Drink Mix 320
PRC is the first Oregon store to carry this new drink mix from Sweden, currently being used by the world's top marathon runners. Eliud Kipchoge used this drink in his nearly-successful assault on the two-hour barrier last year. Why has it become so popular? The simple answer is that it is able to provide a lot of carbohydrate to your system quickly by slipping out of the stomach faster than other hydration sources. The result is more fuel and less sloshing "gut-rot."
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Drink Mix 160 is built on hydrogel technology*. When you mix it with water, you'll get a liquid sports drink containing a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. The sports 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.
Mix the content of each sachet with 17 oz (500 ml) of water and shake well until dissolved. Be accurate, the functionality depends on this ratio. The mix is designed to be mixed with water with <40mg/L calcium content. Higher levels can affect how it's dissolved. Consume the sports drink minutes before, during and or directly after 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 sachet, mixed with 17 oz (500 ml) of water – contains 80 grams of carbohydrates.
