Carbohydrates are the main fuel for endurance events and depletion of carbohydrates is one of the main cause of fatigue. To perform at your best, it is important that you maximise muscle glycogen stores before intense endurance exercise and also maintain muscle glycogen throughout the session to ensure you avoid fatigue. The Etixx Carbo Gy is a hypertonic drink and its main purpose is to deliver energy. It contains high doses of fast carbohydrates and slow carbohydrates meaning that they work at different absorption speeds to provide you with a more sustained supply of energy. Using this as part of a carbohydrate-loading strategy will allow you to maximise muscle glycogen stores.

The Etixx Carbo Gy also contains added vitamins B1 and B2 to support energy production.

Who should use Etixx Carbo Gy?

The Etixx Carbo Gy supplies carbohydrates in large doses and therefore is suitable for anyone that needs to take on large amounts of fuel. This might be in preparation for intense endurance events such as triathlons, marathons and cycling sportives or might be during a heavy training block for team sports such as rugby. This drink can be used pre-training to maximise fuel stores or during training to keep your fuel stores topped up. It can also be drank warm, making it an ideal fuel for training and competing in cold weather.
