Mixing / Usage Instructions
Consume 0.5-2.5 servings per hour (see chart above), along with 16-28 ounces (approx 475-830 ml) of plain water per hour from a separate source.
Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.
Energy Smart® (Grape Juice, Rice Dextrin) – This all-natural, low-sugar sweetener plays an important role in Hammer Gel’s delicious flavor while contributing minimally to the overall carbohydrate content. Energy Smart® is certified non-GMO, gluten-free, and allergen-free.
Citric Acid – Used in minimum amounts to meet FDA requirements for acidity levels. Hammer Gel contains less citric acid than comparable products.
Salt – Minimally added for preservation, flavor, and digestive support. It is not a source of electrolytes (see Endurolytes® product line).
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine – The branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) protect against muscle tissue breakdown, while also helping alleviate fatigue.
L-Alanine – This amino acid is used to help meet energy demands, particularly when the body’s carbohydrates stores are running low.
Potassium Chloride – Source of potassium and sodium.
Cultured Dextrose (Used in pouches and some jugs) – FDA-approved, all-natural preservative.
Potassium Sorbate (Used in some jugs) – FDA-approved preservative.
