If you want to reach the speed of 90 km/h on your bike, you must take care of proper fueling. Which brings us back to the number 90. The thing is, top-level endurance athletes must consume up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour during intense exercise.
The Nduranz brand is known for its extremely efficient fueling supplements based on modern research, thorough testing, and the best ingredients in optimal ratios.
But among the Nrgy Unit fueling line, there is also Nrgy Unit Drink 90. It is a variant of Nrgy Unit Drink, developed especially for top-level endurance athletes who need extreme energy intakes to fuel their intense training sessions and races.
Before we look at the advantages of Nrgy Unit Drink 90, let's look at its little brother, the original Nrgy Unit Drink.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is designed specifically for top-level endurance athletes and their extreme energy needs.
Nrgy Unit Drink
During intense endurance exercise, your energy needs are extremely high. But simply consuming lots of carbohydrates is not enough. You must consume a source with high absorption rates that doesn't cause digestive issues.
A good isotonic sports drink during exercise allows you to:
- Consume 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour
- Preserve energy levels during exercise with high absorption
- Preserve muscle and liver glycogen, delaying time to exhaustion
- Avoid digestive issues, a common problem of many supplements
- Avoid muscle cramps, often caused by poor combinations of carbs and electrolytes
Nrgy Unit Drink has long been considered one of the most efficient isotonic sports drink for endurance athletes during intense exercise, and has been used by several top level athletes, such as Sam Laidlow, Arthur Horseau, Arnaud Guilloux, and Tommy Giacomel.
There are several reasons why Nrgy Unit Drink is a great choice to fuel your athletic performance at any level.
Nduranz Carbohyrate Ratio
In the world of sports nutrition, it has been known for quite some time that a combination of different carbohydrates is more efficient than a single source. The reason is the carbohydrate transporters in your body. Different sugars use different transporters, which is why optimal carbohydrate absorption requires you to make good use of both transporters, the glucose and the fructose one.
David Rowlands from New Zealand and his team conducted several tests to determine that the optimal ratio between glucose and fructose for best absorption is 1:0.8. This ratio is used by Nduranz in all their fueling products.
A combination of glucose and fructose in a 1:0.8 ratio provides the best carbohydrate absorption during intense exercise.
A combination of glucose and fructose in this ratio provides the highest absorption rates, which allows you to consume 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour without digestive issues.
Nduranz Electrolyte Mix
The purpose of sports nutrition during exercise is not only the intake of energy but also hydration.
As a matter of fact, hydration is possibly the most important aspect of supplementation, which is often neglected or poorly understood. It's true that your body needs fluid, that's why maybe you believe drinking water is enough to stay hydrated. Unfortunately, that's far from the truth, especially during long endurance exercise.
Proper hydration means preserving the careful balance of electrolytes in your blood. Drinking water, especially in large quantities, dilutes the concentration of electrolytes, which can negatively impact your body functions that largely depend on electrolytes.
The Nduranz Electrolyte Mix found in Nrgy Unit Drink and other Nduranz products provides your body with the minerals in the same concentration you actually lose with your sweat.
Nduranz Electrolyte Mix replaces exactly the minerals you lose with your sweat.
Nduranz Electrolyte Mix allows your body functions to operate correctly during several hours of intense exercise.
Nrgy Unit System
Another reason why Nduranz products are so popular is their simple and efficient use.
The energy intake during exercise may be needlessly complicated. If you consume too little energy, you will quickly drain your muscle and liver glycogen stores, greatly reducing your time to exhaustion. On the other hand, if you consume too much energy, you will burden your digestive system, which can lead to digestive issues.
Since hitting the right intake amounts may be very complicated, especially when you combine different fueling products during exercise, Nduranz developed the Nrgy Unit System. This system greatly simplifies your energy intake allowing you to always hit the right target without sacrificing the ability to combine different fueling products.
The Nrgy Unit System allows you to optimize your energy intake per hour and combine different fueling products simply and efficiently.
An elite endurance athlete during intense exercise that lasts several hours typically requires an intake of two Nrgy Units per hour. Since we already said that elite athletes typically consume 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour, you might have already deduced that one Nrgy Unit represent 45 grams of carbohydrates. Simple math.
Great taste and natural ingredients
When discussing dietary supplements, we can never forget about taste, as this is often even more important than their effect. At the end of the day, if you don't like how a supplement tastes, you will be hard pressed to consume it. Especially when you need to consume lots of it.
Nduranz pays special regard to the taste of their supplements, always aiming for the best taste possible.
Nrgy Unit Drink is available in the flavors lemon, orange (with or without citric acid), cherry, and watermelon. The flavors with citric acid were added based on athletes' feedback, as some athletes love citric acid, while others prefer a drink without it.
Furthermore, Nduranz only uses natural ingredients of the highest quality, which in a world full of artificial aromas, sweeteners, and additives is a very welcome and athlete-friendly benefit.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is the most efficient racing isotonic sports drink that contains double the amount carbohydrates per serving compared to the regular Nrgy Unit Drink.
Why use Nrgy Unit Drink 90?
Nduranz is always striving for innovation, paying special regard to your needs and feedback.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 was developed based on the feedback of several athletes who asked for a higher concentration of energy in their drink. Obviously, 45 grams per serving was not enough. Hardcore, we know. Don't try this at home.
Nevertheless, Nduranz took the challenge and created a drink with a double dose of energy and a few other exciting benefits.
Who is Nrgy Unit Drink 90 intended for?
There's no point beating around the bush. Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is created for endurance athletes at the top of the food chain, who produce extreme power and a very high number of watts per hour.
It was these athletes who prompted the development and production of the extreme isotonic sports drink named Nrgy Unit Drink 90. Because, let's face it, no normal athlete would ever ask for such a thing. Or would you?
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 allows you to consume more carbohydrates without excessive amounts of water. As a matter of fact, now you can cramp 90 grams of carbs into a single bottle. There it goes. Not a genie in a bottle, but if you were to ask the genie for absurd amounts of energy, it's really one and the same.
Perhaps at this point you wonder whether Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is for you. Well, that's for you to decide, but keep in mind that the regular Nrgy Unit Drink is already an extremely high dose of energy, used by top-level athletes for years to achieve outstanding results.
But research and testing are the mother and father of wisdom, so maybe it's best if you try it out for yourself. If consuming 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour is your thing at all, that is.
Why use Nrgy Unit Drink 90?
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is designed as the most efficient way to hit the maximum intake of 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. We are fully aware that certain extreme athletes intake more than that, but research so far doesn't promote an intake higher of 90 grams per hour.
In fact, an intake of 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour is very heavy for your digestive system, and especially with a poor combination of carbohydrates might cause serious digestive issues.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 contains two Nrgy Units per serving and does not need to be combined with any other fueling product.
If your goal is to reach and sustain the maximum intake of 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour, Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is right down your alley. This way, you can use the least amount of supplements to get optimal absorption and avoid digestive issues.
Another reason to use Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is exactly the issues related to combining different supplements:
- If you consume two energy gels, you don't get fluid
- If you consume one energy gel and one isotonic sports drink, the gel is more expensive than the drink
- Nrgy Unit Drink 90 gives you both in one bottle
Especially this last point emphasizes another great feature of this product. It is simply the most cost efficient fuel for races out there.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 gives you all in a single bottle.
During intense exercise, you must take care of your energy intake, as this allows you to slow down your muscle and liver glycogen consumption and increase your time to exhaustion. You must also take care of proper hydration, as it is crucial for your body functions.
Nrgy Unit Drink provides an extremely efficient source of carbohydrates in a combination of glucose and fructose in a 1:0.8 ratio, which leads to optimal absorption and no digestive issues. It also contains the optimal concentration of electrolytes to replace only the minerals you actually lose in your sweat.
Nrgy Unit Drink 90 is a powered up version of the regular Nrgy Unit Drink, designed specifically for top-level endurance athletes who not only want to conquer the road, but also demolish their opposition, get home the trophy, and do NSFW things to the prom queen.
Both drinks allow you to easily reach the maximum intake of 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour, so you must choose for yourself which of the two better suits your needs. In any case, you can hardly go wrong with either of them, as they are both top-quality isotonic sports drinks to fuel your intense endurance exercise.
