A clean energy gel that kicks ass while also being soft to your digestion.
Fueling is key for endurance athletes and when you refuel, you want to go for the best! This 226ers isotonic gel provides improved and more efficient glycogen replenishment due to cutting-edge carbohydrate source, cyclodextrin:
- It provides prolonged energy release (ideal during and after exercise).
- A lower insulin peak, favouring the use of glucose at cellular level over a shorter timespan, all while maintaining the blood sugar level for longer.
- Rapid gastric emptying thanks to its high molecular weight and low osmolality, favouring digestion and reducing secondary gastrointestinal effects.
- Does not inhibit fat burning.
Easy to grab on and eat, no water needed.
This does not get any easier: No water is required with the gel since the supplement already contains the necessary amount of H20.
In a 68g, 89-kcal stick format, it contains 22 g of carbohydrates per unit, of which practically the entirety are complex hydrates and only 1.4 g is sugar. A natural aroma is added, making its LIME flavour very good and refreshing.
226ers: What happens when you stay true, and care enough to solve the missing piece – optimal digestion.
Stemming from a professional low, 226ers is a testimony of a lifelong dedication. At only 13 years of age, today's founder and CEO, Jesús Sánchez, switched from team sports to individual after reading his first book on sports nutrition. He then swam, windsurfed and skied his way into adulthood. Because he saw so much improvement resulting from hard work and paying attention to looking after oneself, nutrition became his lifelong interest.
During his triathlonist years, Jesús explored the relationship further, with major breakthrough happening when he had to drop out the Ibiza Ironman in 1999. He went deeper into his studies and emerged back in 2004, stronger but still challenged by endurance events: his issue were digestive problems breaking in final stages of competitions. He wasn't the only one though, other athletes knew this well.
What followed involved his doctor, coach, dietician, numerous scientific studies, testing all possible products on the market, and almost straight out detective work!
It panned out big time: in 2010, Jesús began to work on his own composition based on his research. Gluten and sugar went out the window, whereas eating the cleanest sources of nutrition (think natural foods!) and focusing on hydration became the main pillars. His performances improved, and the rest is history. Together with founding 226ers, this Spaniard became the European long distance champion at the Roth Challenge, breaking the 9 hour barrier. Hattrick in Ironman World Championships followed. His life had changed, both professionally and in sport, all marked by nutrition suited to his needs – a message his company carries for others dedicated not only to winning, but to thriving longterm, in all areas of life.
