Veloforte are big advocates of keeping it real - real ingredients that is. Their hydration range uses a 100% natural combination of pink Himlayan salt and dried coconut water to provide all the vital electrolytes your body needs to absorb water effectively, as well as useful macrominerals and vitamin C. Real freeze-dried fruity bits and botanicals produce soft, refreshing flavours you won’t tire of mid-activity.
All three mixes are hypotonic solutions which means they have a lower carbohydrate composition than blood. Hypotonic solutions are the easiest for the body to absorb through the gut lining into the bloodstream, which results in faster hydration.
A low carb electrolyte replacement mix for short, hot or high-intensity workouts up to 60 minutes, or prolonged low-intensity sessions over 2 hours. The fresh natural flavourings of golden apricot and sage are enhanced by a hint of Stevia, a naturally occurring sweetener. All-important sodium is provided by pink Himalayan salt and the potassium by coconut water, an ingredient with a similar electrolyte backdrop to human blood.
A 2-in-1 hydrating and carbohydrate-replacing mix for prolonged endurance sessions of 60 minutes and above and for race-morning pre-hydration and a glycogen store top-up. As well as the 5g of carbs from the naturally occurring sugars in the coconut water, the Vivo mix adds another 17g in the form of cane sugar. The dual blend carbohydrate mix of glucose and fructose is rapidly absorbed by the body.
A 3-in-1 hydrating, carb-replacing and natural caffeine containing mix for prolonged endurance sessions of 60 minutes and above where staying mentally and physically alert is important. Attivo adds 75mg of natural caffeine (about as much as a double espresso) extracted from guarana. The caffeine in guarana is absorbed by the body more slowly, resulting in a less jittery state of prolonged alertness.
