Athletes have always struggled to fuel their bodies.

By the 1960s, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrate solutions during exercise increased performance. With a mixture of sugar, salts and lemonade, the first sports drink was born.

But carbohydrate drinks can cause problems. Our stomachs don’t cope well with high concentrations of sugar – often resulting in slower gastric emptying and GI distress.

At Maurten, we’ve launched a new range of sports fuels by harnessing hydrogel technology to develop carbohydrate-rich and natural sports drinks and energy gels that our bodies can tolerate.
