Not just another sports drink
Athletes have always struggled to fuel their bodies.
By the 1960s, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrate solutions during exercise increased performance. With a mixture of sugar, salts and lemonade, the first sports drink was born.
But carbohydrate drinks can cause problems. Our stomachs don't cope well with high concentrations of sugar – often resulting in slower gastric emptying and GI distress.
At Maurten, we've launched a new range of sports fuels by harnessing hydrogel technology to develop carbohydrate-rich and natural sports drinks and energy gels that our bodies can tolerate.
Science is a part of our nature. And vice versa.
In 2015, we discovered how to make sports fuels easier to tolerate by encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates in hydrogels. The sports fuels, based on only natural ingredients, became popular and one year later some of the world's best runners started using our products. The technology is patent pending.
