TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED is a naturally flavoured high carbohydrate energy drink, containing no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED has been painstakingly formulated so that it delivers TORQ's unique blend of carbohydrate and electrolytes to the working muscles through a drink that is lightly flavoured, refreshing and most importantly NATURAL.
This flavoured version of TORQ energy offers all the benefits of TORQ energy NATURAL with a number of significant added qualities:
More available carbohydrate: This drink's ingredient matrix has been brought in line with some of the most recent research into energy drink formulation. Two studies published in 2005* and 2006** offered quite staggering results when Maltodextrin (TORQ energy NATURAL) was mixed with Fructose (fruit sugar) at a 2:1 ratio. Although Maltodextrin alone has been proven to be considerably more effective than Fructose in isolation, when the two are mixed in this 2:1 ratio, significantly more carbohydrate is made available for use. These studies have demonstrated that a 2:1 Maltodextin to Fructose mix caused athletes to burn 40% more carbohydrate compared with consuming maltodextrin alone. What are the benefits? Quite simply, the increased availability of carbohydrate means that you will be able to sustain a higher pace for longer using TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED, making this product the most advanced formulation available to endurance athletes on the market today.
Electrolytes: TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the electrolytes lost through perspiration and to preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations - some include none at all.
Ready to drink: Perhaps a small benefit for sure, but if you're going to add flavour to your unflavoured TORQ energy NATURAL, this formulation will save you time. Just add the appropriate measure of product to your water bottle, give it a shake and its ready to drink.
So, why would you ever buy unflavoured TORQ energy NATURAL after reading about our flavoured products? The benefit of TORQ energy NATURAL is its simplicity. If you don't like flavoured products and want a neutral-tasting beverage, TORQ energy NATURAL is as effective at providing energy as any other product available on the market today. It can also be added to food as an invisible calorie to boost the carbohydrate content. It is not recommended that you mix TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED on its own above 9% carbohydrate or you will overdose on electrolytes, so during cooler weather you can add TORQ energy NATURAL if you want to run a higher concentration.
DOSE: If exercising intensely, or for prolonged periods in the heat, mix 1 level scoop of TORQ energy with every 250ml water consumed (4 level scoops per litre). This is a 6% carbohydrate mix. If using TORQ energy during lower-intensity training or in cooler conditions, you can experiment with higher concentrations. We recommend that you do not exceed a 9% carbohydrate solution (6 level scoops per litre) of this product. If you would like to run a more concentrated carbohydrate solution than this, add TORQ's NATURAL or NATURAL ORGANIC unflavoured energy drink mix to your 9% solution. TORQ energy NATURAL and NATURAL ORGANIC are made from a pure carbohydrate glucose polymers and do not contain electrolytes or flavours.
MIXING: Half fill drink bottle with water. Add scoops of TORQ energy. Put top on bottle and shake vigorously. Top-up with water and shake again. TORQ energy is now ready to drink.
