With the new range of Aptonia gels, we help athletes prevent "slumps" during workouts by combining treat and performance. These gels have been developed over one year and then tested for over 3,000 hours by 63 testers who travelled over 9,000 km walking, riding, etc. Thanks to this quality-ensuring process, we can now offer three different ranges based on workout intensity, including 14 different flavours, in order to satisfy all our users.

What do gels contain?

All gels contain carbohydrates to provide optimal energy during exercise. The 3:1 ratio combination of glucose-fructose, with a high glycemic index, and maltodextrin, with a low glycemic index, provides instant as well as long-term energy.

The ranges have been supplemented with vitamins, zinc, caffeine or amino-acids based on exercise intensity.

 

GELS 300

These gels contain glucose, fructose and maltodextrin, and are supplemented with vitamins B1 to help with normal energy metabolism.

 

GELS 500

These gels contain glucose, fructose and maltodextrin, and are supplemented with vitamins B1 and vitamins B6 to help reduce fatigue. These gels also include vitamin E and zinc that have anti-oxidant properties to help protect the cells from oxidative stress. Finally, their caffeine content allows to keep focused, even in an advanced state of fatigue.

 

GELS 700

These gels contain glucose and maltodextrin. In addition to vitamins B1, B6, B12, E, zinc and caffeine, these gels include BCAAs, three amino-acids that promote recovery before the exercise is finished .
