CLIF SHOT is a fast-acting, easy-to-digest energy gel with 25 grams of carbohydratesyour body's preferred source of fuel during exercise.
Within five to ten minutes, SHOT's carbohydrates (both simple & complex) and electrolytes are assimilated into your body, working to sustain your overall endurance and coordination. One little packet packs a punch.
Electrolytes - Critical to peak performance, electrolytes are essential in metabolizing carbohydrates and for the proper functioning of muscles. Clif SHOT has three:
Sodium - Studies indicate that rehydration occurs at a faster rate when electrolytes such as sodium are consumed during exercise.
Potassium - 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.
Magnesium - 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.
What about caffeine?
Each packet of Sonic Strawberry & Mocha CLIF SHOT contains 40 mg of caffeine (Double Expresso has 100 mg), which is equal to about 1/2 cup of coffee or one can of soda. 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.
