About the SiS Performance Nitrate Gel
Performance Nitrate Gel is an energy gel delivering 20g carbohydrates and 250mg nitrates. The nitrates are sourced from a unique combination of Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract, providing a superior taste profile and delivering a higher nitrate dose compared to anything else on the market.
The carbohydrate + nitrate in session gel can be taken 60-90 minutes into endurance exercise to provide energy, maintain elevated levels of blood nitrate and reduce the oxygen cost of exercise.
- • 20g Carbohydrate per gel
- • 250mg Nitrates
- • Nitrates sourced from Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract
- • Use during exercise
- • Reduced oxygen cost of exercise
- • Improved exercise efficiency
- • Informed Sport tested
The determinants of performance in endurance sports can be categorised as:
- Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max¬)
- Lactate threshold (the point at which blood lactate increases above baseline levels)
- Efficiency or economy (the oxygen required to produce a given running speed or cycling power output)
In populations with similar performance characteristics (VO2 max and lactate threshold), efficiency is a better predictor of performance. Essentially, those who can expand less energy and use less oxygen at higher workloads are likely to perform better.
Supplementing with sport nutrition products rich in nitrates can have a direct impact on efficiency and as a result improve performance.
