SiS GO Electrolyte in 500g tubs gives you Fast hydration plus sustained energy for before and during exercise and contains a blend of an easily digestible carbohydrate for energy as well as important electrolytes (such as sodium) that are required to promote optimal hydration.
SiS GO Electrolyte in 500g tubs gives you Fast hydration plus sustained energy for before and during exercise and contains a blend of an easily digestible carbohydrate for energy as well as important electrolytes (such as sodium) that are required to promote optimal hydration. SiS GO Electrolyte is mixed at appropriate concentrations of carbohydrate (i.e. 36 grams of carbohydrate mixed as a 6% solution), sodium (20 mmol/L) and fluid (a 500 ml serving) in order to achieve the combined aims of both carbohydrate delivery and hydration and prevent stomach distress as caused by other drink mixes.
• 36 grams of carbohydrate per 500 ml serving
• High in sodium to promote hydration (200mg per serve)
• Delivers energy and fluid fast
Why should I take SiS GO Electrolyte Powder?
It is well documented that both carbohydrate depletion and dehydration are two of the major causes of fatigue in endurance exercise. In addition to ensuring optimal carbohydrate stores and hydration status before exercise, delivering additional carbohydrate and fluid during exercise is known to improve performance, race times and delay the onset of fatigue. Common mistakes made by endurance athletes are to consume too much carbohydrate at inappropriate concentrations (such that it can not be readily absorbed) or too little carbohydrate at low concentrations which although will increase fluid delivery will compromise carbohydrate delivery. As such, SiS GO Electrolyte represents a product that is formulated according to scientific research so as to achieve the right balance of both carbohydrate and fluid delivery. SiS GO Electrolyte therefore represents a strategic approach to offset the negative effects of carbohydrate depletion and dehydration on your performance.
Consume 500-1000 ml of SiS GO Electrolyte per hour during exercise in order to achieve both carbohydrate delivery and promote hydration. If it is not practical to consume this amount of fluid during exercise or the environmental temperatures do not require large fluid intakes, SiS GO Electrolyte could be consumed alongside the SiS GO Gel and GO Bar range in order to ensure appropriate carbohydrate intakes at the rate of 60 grams per hour.
Ingredients: Carbohydrate Mix (92%) [Maltodextrin (produced by partial hydrolysis of a special variety of maize), Fructose], Natural Flavour, Citric Acid, Electrolytes (2%)[Sodium Chloride, Calcium Lactate, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Citrate, Magnesium Lactate), Sweetener (Aspartame). Contains a source of Phenylalanine.
SUITABLE FOR VEGANS. GLUTEN FREE.
WHEN SHOULD I USE SIS GO ELECTROLYTE RATHER THAN SIS GO ENERGY OR SIS GO HYDRO?
Fluid is best absorbed when delivered as part of a carbohydrate-electrolyte drink, so SiS GO Electrolyte is the primary option for hydration and energy in events longer than 90 minutes.
SiS GO Energy can be used in cooler conditions when your sweat rate is lower, or before endurance activity as part of a carbohydrate loading regime. SiS GO Hydro does not contain any energy, so it could be used in conjunction with SiS GO Energy or for sessions lasting less than one hour when no additional carbohydrate is required.
ARE SIS PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS? WHICH PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE?
Most of our products are suitable for vegetarians. The only products that may not be suitable for vegetarians are the SiS Protein Bars in both Chocolate & Peanut and Mint Chocolate flavours. Only SiS GO Electrolyte powder, SiS GO Energy powder, SiS GO Hydro and SiS GO gels (including isotonic energy and all specialty gels) are suitable for vegans. Please see our table above for further allergen information
DO YOU USE ANY SWEETENERS IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
We use some sweeteners in various products across our range. Those used are Aspartame, Acesulfame K and Sucralose either singularly or in combination with each other. All of these sweeteners have been heavily tested, as with all aspects of our products, and are completely safe for consumption. For further information, full nutritional breakdowns and ingredients can be found on each product page.
ARE SIS PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS?
All SiS products can be used by diabetics if they take account of the carbohydrate content and build it into a nutritional strategy. Please speak to your GP if you are unsure.
