Benefits of Shotz Energy Gel

The objective of an energy gel is to deliver a high amount of calories, in a small volume, as quickly as possible with the least amount of energy required. Shotz Energy Gels are a carbohydrate food in a semi-fluid, liquid gel form that can provide a high calorie component in a small volume.

The Shotz Energy Gels are predigested in their manufacture and closely resemble the consistency of chyme (chyme is the semi-fluid form that all solid food is converted into in the stomach during digestion). The energy gel enters the digestive system in a form the stomach already recognises, effectively minimising the energy required to metabolise it. An important consideration when you want every bit of energy to be utilised by the active muscles and not by the digestive system.

Shotz Energy Gel has been formulated to go down easily on its on or with a small amount of fluid. It has been formulated to have a minimal sensory impact. The formulation is very clean, with a smooth consistency that doesn’t stick to the roof of your mouth, or cause irritation to the back of the throat and doesn’t leave an unpleasant aftertaste. All crucial factors given emotions and senses are heightened during activity, especially prolonged activity.

With Shotz Energy Gels you don't get the spikes and crashes associated with sugary/powdered drinks.

Carbohydrates are what make our bodies tick and the natural reserves we carry can run out very quickly after periods of exertion, leading to fatigue and loss of control. With Shotz Energy Gel these carbohydrate reserves receive a "top up", meaning your muscles and mind continue to perform at their peak - even after you've put yourself through your paces.

Shotz Sports Nutrition originally started out as Carboshotz back in 1995. An energy gel in semi-fluid, liquid/gel form in three flavours banana, cola and lemon/lime was the first product to carry the Carboshotz name. The easy to consume, liquid/gel consistency and gentle on the stomach formula was popular right from the start.

A sports drink was introduced in 2002 as a liquid concentrate. It was called Carbolyte and boasted a 6% carbohydrate solution with a standard electrolyte composition. With this product, we made the mistake of doing what everyone else was doing, which is what we advise athletes not to do when planning a nutrition strategy. We soon realised our mistake and not being able to address the individual needs of the athlete our focus centred around developing a sports drink that wasn't a one size fits all solution, but one that could be customised to suit a specific physiological makeup and one that allowed the athlete to change the volume of fluid they consumed depending on the weather conditions.

After a long and exhaustive process 2005 saw the introduction of the Shotz Electrolyte Tablet and a name change to Shotz Sports Nutrition. We had the products to supply calories to keep athletes fuelled, now we had an electrolyte tablet that allowed us to address the individual needs of athletes who had different sweat rates and different sodium concentrations in their sweat. The athlete could now alter the volume of fluid they consumed based on their own physiological makeup and the changing weather conditions. The athlete was no longer locked in to a preset volume of fluid, with a preset amount of calories, with a preset electrolyte composition.

We feel very confident that there is not a sports nutrition company out there that has put as much time and effort into developing a range of sports nutrition products as the team at Shotz has. You can be confident that we have tested every single ingredient with the sole purpose of providing the athlete with a product that has the lowest sensory impact and is as gentle on the stomach as possible.
