Sustained Energy 2.0
Sustained Energy 2.0
- Stable energy levels, hour after hour
- Non-Acidic, lactic acid buffering
- Spares muscle mass
The world’s first protein-fortified sports drink still stands the test of time. Designed to provide steady energy, buffer lactic acid, and prevent lean-muscle cannibalization, this unsweetened and mild-tasting, 7:1 carb-to-protein blend has been a fan favorite since 1992. 30 years later, we’ve taken it up another huge level by replacing the corn maltodextrin with massively superior tapioca maltodextrin. Superior because of far less processing, guaranteed no GMO content, lower amounts of sodium and higher amounts of naturally occurring potassium, and a more-alkaline pH. Tapioca maltodextrin has the same Glycemic Index (GI) as other forms of maltodextrin, so you get the fast-acting energy that you’re looking for. Coupled with that, tapioca maltodextrin has a lower Dextrose Equivalent (DE), which means more polysaccharide (complex carb) chains for even longer-lasting energy and endurance.
Tapioca is the sugar and corn alternative we’ve been wanting to bring to you for years is finally here!
Whether you’ve been using Sustained Energy for 30 years or are thinking of trying it for the first time, you are going to be impressed with this 2.0 version, guaranteed!
Sustained Energy is especially popular with ectomorphic, hyper-metabolic body types with limited fat stores who struggle to maintain muscle mass during high-volume training.
How To Use
Mix 1–2 scoops in a 16–26 oz bottle and consume entire contents each hour. Only supplemental electrolytes are needed here.
Mix 1–2 scoops per hour of planned exercise, up to 8 scoops in a large water bottle. Drink gradually over the desired number of hours.
Mix 1–3 scoops in a bowl with a small amount of water, stir, and mix until the combination forms a paste. Fill a flask or other container with paste. Use as desired during exercise as a source of calories only.
NOTES ON MULTI-HOUR AND PASTE
When consuming in this manner, it’s not a source of hydration, just calories. You must have a separate, plain water source for your hydration needs. You must also consume electrolytes from an independent source.
Tapioca Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise.
Isolated Soy Protein – A dry powder food ingredient that has been separated or isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90 to 95 percent protein, and nearly carbohydrate- and fat-free.
L-Carnosine – This dipeptide (a combination of two amino acids) L-carnosine is a potent lactic acid buffer. It also offers antioxidant support.
L-Carnitine Tartrate – L-Carnitine Tartrate is a compound containing L-carnitine chelated (“bonded”) to L-tartrate, which is a salt of tartaric acid. L-carnitine is the key nutrient involved in the shuttling of fatty acids into the cell for energy production. Tartrate is a potent antioxidant.
Choline Bitartrate – A type of B-complex vitamin that helps with efficient use of body fat stores as energy. Choline bitartrate also supports enhanced cognition, learning, and memory.
Chromium Polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in energy production.
