Science in Sport (SiS), the UK leaders in endurance nutrition, have launched a new SiS GO Energy + Electrolyte Gel in Raspberry and Lemon & Mint flavor just in time for summer.
The popular SiS GO Energy gel range has received a new addition, offering both fast carbohydrate for energy and electrolytes to aid hydration. The new gel will sit alongside the existing isotonic energy gels to offer consumers choice for their energy and hydration needs on the move.
The new SiS GO Energy + Electrolyte gel provides athletes with a new and versatile option to enhance their training and racing. Electrolytes including sodium, potassium and magnesium are lost through sweat and need to be replaced in order to help the body maintain fluid balance, alongside an appropriate fluid intake. The product is a perfect extension of the range for the hot summer months and can be frozen like an ice-pop to help athletes cool down while they keep hydrated.
The SiS GO Energy + Electrolyte gel builds on the established science of the SiS GO Isotonic Energy gel, the world’s first isotonic energy gel. The gel not only delivers a rapid supply of easily digestible carbohydrates (22 grams) for energy, but also provides 118mg sodium, 9.5mg potassium and 1.5g magnesium per gel.
The SiS GO Electrolyte gels are available to purchase at www.scienceinsport.com and are priced at $23.99 per 6 pack and $119.99 per 30 pack ($3.99 each)
Dr Rob Child, Chief Scientific Officer at Science in Sport said: “SiS was one of the first companies to manufacture energy gels in the form we know them today. We also created the world’s first isotonic energy gel and we’re delighted to carry on this innovation with our new energy plus electrolyte gel.”
He continued: “Using our athlete feedback we know that there is a desire to deliver carbohydrates and electrolytes together in a convenient format. The new gel can be used alongside the SiS GO Isotonic Energy gels in addition to water to help cater for all nutritional needs during prolonged exercise. ”
