Science in Sport has added a brand new GO electrolyte gel, available in two fresh flavours – Raspberry and a Lemon/Mint.
The popular SiS GO Energy gel range will have a new addition, offering both fast carbohydrate for energy and electrolytes to aid hydration. The new gel will sit alongside the existing isotonic energy and caffeine options to offer consumers choice for their energy and hydration needs on the move.
Meanwhile, the new SiS GO Energy + Electrolyte gel provides athletes with a 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 SiS GO Energy + Electrolyte gel builds on the established science of the SiS GO Isotonic Energy gel, the world’s first and, currently, only isotonic energy gel, according to the brand. 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 1.5mg magnesium per gel.
The SiS GO Electrolyte gels are priced at £1.50 each.
Luke Heeney, New Product Director at Science in Sport said: “We are passionate about innovation and are delighted to present our latest energy gel. We 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. ”
