You may have used Produrance Sports Drink or may be thinking about giving it a try, but why is it the ideal sports drink for endurance athletes?
Produrance is an isotonic sports drink, which contains everything you need to keep you going when you need it the most.
Produrance contains an optimal ratio of 2:1 glucose to fructose, maximizing carbohydrate absorption during exercise and allowing a researched proven 90g of carbohydrates to be absorbed per hour. The advanced P4Max formulation releases carbohydrates at 4 separate stages ensuring constant energy availability while minimizing energy spikes. It provides 50% more carbohydrates per hour compared to a single carbohydrate energy sports drink
Based on sweat analysis research, Produrance’s CrSTOP+ formulation replaces the key electrolytes lost in sweat (Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium), improving muscle function and reducing the onset of muscle cramps and dehydration.
Sodium is beneficial for athletes exercising for longer than 1 hour as it minimizes hyponatremia (low blood sodium), dehydration, improves taste and stimulates thirst. Absorption of fluids that enter the intestines is more rapid when sodium is present. Water uptake in the small intestine will help to maintain extracellular fluid volume and aid carbohydrate absorption
Potassium is responsible for regulating total cell water and stabilizing controlled/automatic muscle contractions. During exercise, cells lose potassium during muscle contractions, which if not replaced will eventually lead to fatigue. Symptoms of potassium depletion include irregular heartbeat, slower reflexes, nausea, drowsiness, and muscle weakness and fatigue.
Magnesium is involved in ATP (energy) and red blood cell production. Low magnesium levels can acutely contribute to early fatigue, nausea and muscle cramps.
Phosphate is involved in the regulation of energy metabolism and endurance performance by increasing the rate of ATP production and cardiac muscle contractility-response to exercise, and enhances Acid-Base balance during exercise.
So what is the best way to use Produrance? Here are just 3 ways in which Produrance can be used to get the ideal 90g of carbs per hour:
- Mix 3 level scoops into 600-1000ml of water and shake until completely dissolved. Drink one bottle during every hour of exercise
- Mix 2 level scoops into 600-1000l of water and shake until completely dissolved. Drink one bottle plus consume 1 Produrance Energy Gel during every hour of exercise
- Mix 1 level scoops into 600-1000ml of water and shake until completely dissolved. Drink one bottle plus consume 2 Produrance Energy Gels during every hour of exercise
