Benefits

Key Benefits:

Betaine

Betaine is an osmoprotectant. It protects our cells against dehydration by acting as an osmolyte, thereby increasing the water retention of cells.* Betaine safeguards cells against the detrimental effects of extreme temperature, salinity and humidity.*

Beta-Alanine

Beta-alanine is the rate limiting precursor to carnosine, an endogenous intracellular (muscle) buffer, and one of the immediate defences against the accumulation of protons in the contracting musculature during exercise.* Carniosone (B-alanyl-L-histidine) is a dipeptide found in muscle tissue that acts as an intramuscular buffer of hydrogen ions.* Beta-Alanine increases skeletal muscle carnosine levels, this supports the maintenance acid-base balance, delay fatigue, and improve exercise performance.*

Sodium Bicarbonate

The build up of acid inside our muscles is one of the factors responsible for fatigue. Increased acidity ultimately inhibits energy transfer and the ability of our muscles to contract, leading to a decrease in exercise performance. Sodium Bicarbonate helps us by neutralizing this acid build-up and thereby reducing fatigue and increasing performance.*

Electrolytes

Refueling with sodium and chloride redirects precious fluids to your cells and major tissues, eliminating mid-activity cramps, nausea, fatigue, and stomach distress.* A sodium top-up prevents the ‘gut bomb’ affect (vomiting during races) and ‘hyponatremia’ (nausea, fatigue, confusion) during long distances.*

Chloride works closely with sodium to regulate the body-water balance, helping you retain water better.* It also limits the amount of precious hydration reserves lost to sweat and urine, and maintains the necessary volume of fluids in your blood.*

Magnesium is gaining prominence as a factor in influencing mid-race performance. Deficiency can result in a sub-optimal performance, as magnesium is important for the proper transmission of nerve impulses, muscular contraction, and energy production processes. Magnesium can also have a direct impact on the utilization of sodium, potassium, and calcium by the muscles.* The longer and more intense your exercise, the faster the depletion of magnesium levels through sweat and urine. This depletion, if not corrected, can cause muscle cramping, irregular heart rate, and fatigue.*

Potassium is a major electrolyte that works closely with sodium and chloride in maintaining hydration, and in generating electrical impulses in the nerves and muscles, including the heart.* This translates to better muscle performance, even at the stage when you have already logged in several miles.*

Calorie Combinations

We strongly feel that this new combination gives you complete freedom. It takes math out of the equation as all we now need to focus on is consumption of two units, per hour. A unit being an Elite Gel, or Elite Drink Mix. When temperatures are hot, you may find yourself drinking a bit more, and when temperatures are cooler, you may find yourself leaning towards more concentrated forms of energy, like the gel.

Some equations for you to consider below, based on hourly intake:

Unived Endurance Fuel Calorie Combinations

The Elite Gel or Elite Drink Mix, can also be used in combination with a Unived Regular Gel. For example, one Elite Gel + one Regular Gel will give you 190+110 = 300kcal, delivering a total of 56g of simple carbs and 15g of complex carbs. Since 60g simple carb is the maximum we can absorb per hour, this combination delivering 56g helps us stay within limit.
