G.1.M Sport was created by athletes for athletes. We used a superior carbohydrate source known as Cluster Dextrin®, Pink Himalayan Salt, and TRAACS® minerals.
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).
Study 1: When athletes consumed Cluster Dextrin® versus maltodextrin or glucose, they had significantly lower incidences of belching or flatulence during intense training due to its ability to move from the stomach to the intestines quickly.
Study 2: When athletes consumed Cluster Dextrin® versus glucose, they were able to swim 1.5 times longer
Study 3: When athletes consumed Cluster Dextrin® versus maltodextrin, their level of fatigue exertion was significantly lower.
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". TRAACS® is a trademark of Albion Laboratories, Inc., who is the only chelate manufacturer to provide identification methods for its chelates.
