When athletes use energy gels, they sometimes do not absorb enough water. Sometimes they simply forget to drink, or the situation does not always allow a combined intake. This results in a concentrated mixture of carbohydrates with very high osmolality in the stomach. This slows the emptying of the stomach and therefore the rate of absorption, which usually leads to gastrointestinal upset.o-intestinaux.
The 6d ISOGEL contains only 20 g of carbohydrates in the form of a carefully selected very high molecular weight maltodextrin. Therefore, the 6d ISOGEL is already isotonic by itself, which means that this gel is absorbed faster than most other gels. It is therefore not necessary to combine this gel with water to obtain an isotonic solution. In short, the 6d ISOGEL is the ideal choice for athletes who cannot / do not want to consume water at the same time and / or in the event of efforts of lesser duration (1-2 hours).(1-2 heures).
