Human Sweat Based Isotonic Mix

The Nrgy Unit Drink was developed with the intent to provide the most efficient and sophisticated sports drink on the market. Proper fueling is essential to achieve good results and maintain long-term health, and Nrgy Unit Drink is optimized for best fueling during intense exercise.

A sports drink consists of two equally important and interconnected aspects: hydration and energy. Nrgy Unit Drink provides optimal hydration with the Nduranz Electrolyte Mix and improved energy availability with the Nduranz Carbohydrate ratio.

The Nduranz Carbohydrate Ratio, a 1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin and fructose, uses both energy transporters in our body. The SGLT1 transporter for glucose and the GLUT5 transporter for fructose. Using both transporters at once allows the body to ingest up to 90 grams (possibly even more) of carbohydrates per hour without causing digestive issues.

The Nduranz Electrolyte Mix was designed as a response to the inefficacy of most sports drinks on the market, which are often saturated with excessive minerals, especially magnesium. By providing the body only what is actually lost in the sweat during exercise, we stimulate optimal hydration without disturbing the careful balance of electrolytes and cause digestive issues.

Digestive issues are a common problem of endurance athletes who need to consume a large number of calories during exercise to keep up sufficient fueling. Nrgy Unit Drink is optimized to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal issues as much as possible by using both energy transporters and scaling down on magnesium in the electrolyte mix.

A myth among endurance athletes is that magnesium prevents muscle cramps. For this reason, most sports drinks ramp up the quantity of magnesium. Unfortunately, too large an intake of magnesium is very likely to cause digestive issues while hardly preventing muscle cramps at all. What does prevent muscle cramps is an appropriate amount and combination of carbohydrates, something Nrgy Unit Drink is designed to provide.

Nrgy Unit Drink uses the Nrgy Unit system. This system is designed to simplify your caloric intake during intense exercise and allows you to mix and match all our products that use this system (see: Nrgy Unit Gel). With the Nrgy Unit system, your fueling will always be easy and on point.

    Simplified dosing allows you to focus on your physical activity:

    One energy unit per hour = one scoop (basic or short workouts up to two hours) in 500 ml of water. 

    Two energy units per hour = two scoops, one for each of the two separate 500 ml bottles (exercise over two hours or extremely intense workouts and races). In hot conditions, the bottle should contain 750 ml of water.

    Our philosophy is simple - provide athletes with products that are scientifically proven to be effective. The task we presented ourselves with was to introduce to the market a drink that is based on strong scientific evidence, as we strongly stand behind our slogan: "Fueled by research".

    Nrgy Unit Drink contains a mixture of a glucose-based carbohydrate source (maltodextrin) and fructose, but the adopted 1:0.8 ratio is a deviation from the common 2:1 ratio. A ratio closer to equality has been shown to be more effective in regard to performance, glycogen sparing, and comfort of the gastrointestinal system.

    The electrolyte content of Nrgy Unit Drink is in line with the average content of human sweat so that you replace what you lost.

    A recently published study found that in elite runners ingestion of large amounts of carbohydrates (120 grams per hour) resulted in a significant reduction in markers of muscle damage in the post-run period: ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32403259/.

    The question of what a sports drink should contain is very complex. Most manufacturers simply take formulations from their competitors and tweak them only so that they can say they are different.

    We took a different approach. 

    Our experts reviewed the available literature and based the final formulation of the product based on solid evidence. In this article Baker and Jeukendrup discuss the "optimal composition" of fluid-replacement beverages: ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24715561/

    It is a rarity to find fructose in sports nutrition products. But when it is there, manufacturers usually choose a 2:1 maltodextrin to fructose ratio. However, a closer look at the literature reveals that the optimal ratio is actually 1:0.8. In this paper, David Rowlands and his colleagues present this issue: ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26373645/.
