The carbohydrate source used in G.1.M Sport is what we like to consider, a superior carbohydrate source for endurance training. The intent of using a carbohydrate source is to provide sustained energy and refuel what you are burning during that session.
Cluster Dextrin® is known as Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD). Cluster Dextrin® has a high molecular weight and is very fast gastric emptying. This means that it passes through your stomach at a faster rate, compared to other carbohydrate sources, which makes it more readily available for your body to use as energy without stomach discomfort or bloating (due to Cluster Dextrin®'s low osmotic pressure).
In addition to Cluster Dextrin®'s fast gastric emptying rate, it also provides a sustained release of energy without a sudden spike in blood sugar or insulin response.

G.1.M Sport supplies a full electrolyte profile with 350mg of sodium per serving. Electrolytes are necessary for muscle contractions and normal body functions. During intense training sessions you will lose fluids and electrolytes, which are essential to maintain the highest rate of performance, especially when you sweat excessively.
We decided to source the sodium from Pink Himalayan Salt, which is free of additives and naturally contains up to 84 different minerals in trace amounts.
Our other electrolytes are TRAACS® minerals, which stands for "The Real Amino Acid Chelate System".
