Energy for endurance athletes
Within five to ten minutes, SHOT's carbohydrates (simple & complex) and electrolytes are assimilated into your body, working to sustain your overall endurance and coordination.
Critical to peak performance, electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and magnesium are essential in metabolizing carbohydrates and for the proper functioning of muscles.
Studies indicate that rehydration occurs at a faster rate when electrolytes such as sodium are consumed during exercise.
This mineral is the major electrolyte found in all of your body's cells. It plays an important role in the transmission of signals to nerve impulses, muscle cell contraction and overall maintenance of your cardiovascular system.
Not only is it essential for the efficient metabolism of carbohydrates, research has shown that athletes have a higher-than-average rate of magnesium deficiency. Muscle cramps and tremors may signal a magnesium deficiency.
Sonic Strawberry and Mocha Mocha CLIF SHOT contain 40 mg of caffeine. Over 85% of all studies focusing on the use of caffeine among athletes demonstrate that caffeine offers significant advantages.
In controlled amounts, caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, increases the release of adrenaline, and aids in the use of body fat as fuel. The 40 mg of caffeine in each 100 calorie packet of Sonic Strawberry and Mocha Mocha CLIF SHOT is equal to about 1/2 cup of coffee.
