X’treme is a state-of-the-art stimulant sports drink. It combines the benefits of EnergySource 2:1 with a HIGH LEVEL OF CAFFEINE for a serious stimulant kick. X’treme is exceptionally easy on the stomach and it contains natural flavours with no colours, preservatives or artificial sweeteners. With a high level of electrolytes ( magnesium), it also hydrates extremely quickly, so it can be used as part of an anti-cramp strategy.
High5 Energy Source Caffeine Drum Features:
2:1 Fructose High Caffeine.
Race Day Caffeine Loading.
Pre-Training Stimulant Drink.
Get you home re-energised if you blow up.
X’treme is intended to be used as:
A one-time caffeine hit.
A mental kick before or during a hard session.
To caffeine load before or during a major race.
As an emergency “get you home” re-energizer if you or a friend blow up on a longer ride.
NOTE: X’treme has a HIGH CAFFEINE CONTENT and it is NOT intended for continuous use during training or an event. Very occasionally some athletes find that caffeine loading can increase cramp, so always try in training before racing.
Research shows that as well as its stimulant effects, caffeine can increase the rate of glucose absorption and enhance fluid delivery. In terms of research on optimum caffeine intake, a recent study* has summarised the following:
Events less than 30 minutes’ duration - Caffeine doses of 6-9mgs/kg appear to produce significant performance benefits in trained subjects.
Events from 30-60 minutes’ duration - In runners, doses of 3mgs/kg and 6mgs/ kg enhanced performance, but 9mgs/ kg had no effect. In cyclists, doses of 5, 9 and 13mgs/kg all produced enhanced performance.
Events over an hour - Intakes of 1-2mgs/kg enhanced cycling performance at the end of 2 hours of cycling to the same degree as 6mgs/kg given at the beginning. Some research suggests that this is because individuals may become more sensitive to caffeine as fatigue accumulates.
