How to prepare Svensson's isodrink?

The influence of the right drink on sports performance.
Years of experience with (top) athletes have made us realize that it is essential to hydrate. In short: "you have to drink"

Drinking water?

Drinking water does not provide energy during exercise. Drinking water in large quantities can cause the sodium in the blood to become diluted (hyponatraemia) and thus cause negative effects through overhydration. No isotonic drink to hand, use pure water in combination with Svensson endurance gel.

Isotonic drinks?

Sports drinks can offer the "all in one" solution because they bring water, sodium and carbohydrates to the liver.
Various studies confirm the effectiveness of sports drinks as a function of endurance. In comparison with a placebo (sweetened water), these drinks make it possible to maintain a longer effort at a constant moderate intensity and to increase the number of repetitions of an intense effort.
Optimal sodium and carbohydrate concentration and osmolarity levels ensure that the drink stays in the stomach for as short a time as possible. As a result, rapid absorption into the bloodstream.

Criteria for making your choice in sports drink

  • Tonality or osmolarity: the ideal drink during your exertion must be isotonic or possibly hypotonic, but above all not hypertonic. An isotonic drink has the same concentration as the blood, a hypotonic drink is less concentrated than the blood and a hypertonic drink more. An isotonic solution is easily absorbed and leaves the stomach quickly (better digestive comfort) for optimum efficiency.
  • Carbohydrate content
    The ideal amount of carbohydrates for performance is between 60 and 80 g of carbohydrates per liter.
    Quality of carbohydrates
    The glycemic index must be high. Some drinks combine different types of carbohydrates (glucose, fructose, dextrose, sucrose, etc.), which increases the amount of exogenous carbohydrates used during exercise.
    If only a glucose solution is taken, the amount of carbohydrates that is consumed with exercise reaches 1 g / min (60 g / hour). If a mixture of carbohydrates (glucose and fructose) is taken, the amount of exogenous carbohydrates that you use reaches 1.2 to 1.7 g / min (72 to 102 g / hour). This increase in the amount of carbohydrates consumed is explained by the different ways in which the carbohydrates enter the cell. The ideal is to combine different types of sugars. Be careful not to use too much fructose because of the risk of diarrhea.
  • Electrolyte content: the recommendations for electrolytes are 500 to 700 mg of sodium per liter of water. The addition of potassium is advised because of the losses due to perspiration
  • pH: a daily and repeated intake of acid drinks destroys the tooth enamel. It is therefore recommended to avoid excessive acid drinks and to use drinks with a pH of more than 5.5.
  • Taste also plays a fundamental role. Studies show that a drink with a pleasant taste is more effective because it will be consumed more easily.
