Marathon is an energy drink for endurance racing, stage racing and periods of high training loads. A foundation of multiple transportable carbohydrates and whey protein offers maximal carbohydrate oxidation rates to sustain performance while also providing protein to prevent muscle catabolism and improve performance in multi-day events and during hard training periods. Balanced electrolyte replacement and isotonic formulation complete the picture.
More Sustained Energy Delivery and Hydration. Improved Recovery and Performance. Ideal for longer training sessions, events over 2 hours in duration and stage racing,
Scientifically proven multiple transportable carbohydrates for sustained energy delivery
Protein and taurine reduce exercise-related muscle damage & improve performance
BENEFITS AND USAGES:
Optimal balance of maltodextrin and fructose (2:1). Numerous studies show that combining fructose with maltodextrin improves exercise performance, maximises gastric emptying rate and increases fluid absorption rate, delaying fatigue and delaying the onset of dehydration.
Optimal carbohydrate / protein ratio (5:1). Numerous studies have proven the efficacy of mixed protein and carbohydrate ingestion in comparison to carbohydrate alone. Mixed carbohydrate/protein drinks reduce exercise-related muscle damage and catabolism and may improve exercise performance.
Taurine supplementation improves exercise performance and reduces exercise-induced muscle damage.
Phosphate supplementation and loading enhance myocardial function, improve exercise performance and increase exercise oxidative capacity.
Magnesium is an essential element in energy metabolism and cell function. Dietary intake of magnesium is often insufficient in athletic populations. Physical exercise may deplete magnesium, which, together with a marginal dietary magnesium intake, may impair energy metabolism efficiency and the capacity for physical work, as well as increase immunosuppression and oxidative damage caused by exercise.
Balanced electrolyte formula to optimise performance, reduce the risk of hyponatraemia and prolong glucose absorption.
True isotonic formulation when mixed as directed.
DIRECTIONS AND DOSAGE:
Add 2 rounded scoops to 500ml water. Drink 500 – 600ml each hour during prolonged endurance exercise (>2hrs) and stage racing.
Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Food supplements should not replace a varied diet.
