Whether it’s their gear or their food, endurance athletes can’t afford to be loaded down with anything superfluous that doesn’t directly enhance performance. CLIF SHOT Energy Gel can help improve endurance performance with its fast-acting energy source from carbohydrates and organic maltodextrin and organic cane sugar.
Consuming carbohydrates during activity enhances performance by providing working muscles with a continuous supply of energy. While the body can store a limited amount of carbohydrates as glycogen, the harder it works the faster it burns through these stored carbohydrates. If carbohydrates are consumed during activity, the body can sustain activity for a longer period of time.
