VO2® aerobic gel is an innovative single-dose pocketsize energy supplement designed for those who practice medium-pace aerobic sports activities, that is between 30 and 60% of the maximum rate of oxygen consumption (VO2max). During such type of aerobic exercise, the muscle’s energy sources are provided in a somewhat balanced manner by fats and glucides.
Until now, sports nutrition has always had little consideration for the use of fats as a source of energy because they are low-performing and laborious to be taken in their most natural form, as oils.
Indeed, fat digestion lasts 3 hours. More recently, the introduction of particular fatty acids, the MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), that are simpler short-chain fats (6-12 carbon atoms), is receiving more and more attention and positive feedback in terms of success in sports nutrition and in particular diets called ketogenic, used both for sportive and therapeutic purposes.
We know that fats, unlike other sources of energy, produce 9kcal per gram, which means that, compared to sugars, they are able to provide energy for a long period of time, only less brilliantly in terms of power.
Compared to common lipids, MCTs are much more rapidly absorbable and usable fats. VO2® aerobic also contains isomaltulose (PalatinoseTM)*, a low glycaemic index sugar that ensures constant and prolonged energy response.
Red beetroot juice, recently acknowledged as a great resource in sports nutrition, provides an additional source of complex sugars and facilitates the production of nitric oxide; together with arginine AKG, it contributes to enriching the muscles with oxygen, reducing fatigue, improving performance and accelerating recovery.
VO2® aerobic gel is an energy supplement indicated for sportspeople who practice aerobic endurance activities such as long-distance running, cycling, skiing and swimming.
Take 1 single dose per day (equal to 30 ml), after shaking it vigorously. Follow with small sips of water.
