Swill the gel

Triathlon Plus - - Nutrition Feature -

If you’re des­per­ate for en­ergy, but don’t feel like swal­low­ing any more en­ergy prod­ucts, try swill­ing some en­ergy gel around your mouth. There are car­bo­hy­drate sen­sors in the mouth that stim­u­late the brain into work­ing harder. Re­search has shown that us­ing a car­bo­hy­drate mouth rinse can speed up a 40km cy­cling time trial time by over a minute. by eight per cent when com­pared to a glu­cose drink alone. When choos­ing gels or sports drinks, look for prod­ucts that mix glu­cose or mal­todex­trin with fruc­tose.
