What is isotonic? When do you choose an isotonic sports gel or high energy gel?

You've probably seen it before: isotonic sports drinks and isotonic gels. But what exactly is isotonic and which is better for which training? An isotonic drink replenishes what you lose during exercise, it contains fast sugars (dextrose), the right amount of minerals (sodium) and fluid (water). These are all the elements needed to be able to continue exercising for longer. An isotonic sports drink contains approximately the same number of particles per 100 milliliters as body fluid. This way, an isotonic sports drink or sports gel can be easily absorbed by your body. Ideal for endurance athletes!

The isotonic gel is an energy gel in which the main source of carbohydrates is Cyclodextrin, a cutting-edge carbohydrate that provides an improved and more efficient replenishment of Glycogen. In other words; No water is required for the absorption of this gel, as the gel itself already contains the required amount of water. So great!

226ERS Isotonic Gel
This isotonic gel is an energy gel in which the main source of carbohydrates is cyclodextrin, an advanced carbohydrate that ensures a better and more efficient replenishment of glycogen. 

  • It ensures a long-lasting energy release, which is ideal during and after exercise.
  • Promotes consumption of glucose.
  • Reduces stomach problems and promotes digestion.
  • Does not inhibit fat burning.
  • Only natural flavors.
  • A lower insulin peak, which promotes the use of glucose at the cellular level in a shorter period of time, while maintaining blood sugar levels for longer.

Its main feature is that no water is required for intake, as the gel contains the necessary amount for consumption. The gel is also gluten-free and vegan. The gel has a handy packaging in a stick format of 68 g and at 89 kcal it contains 22 g of carbohydrates per unit, of which almost all are complex hydrates and only 1.4 g of sugar. 

A natural aroma is used, which creates very good flavors: 

  • Lime: Formulated without caffeine 
  • Watermelon: formulated without caffeine 
  • Cola: with 100 mg caffeine 
  • Ice Mint
  • Blueberry Mint

226ERS High energy gel
High Energy Gel, just like the isotonic gel, is an energy gel in which the main source of carbohydrates is cyclodextrin. The main difference is the number of carbohydrates per serving. The longer your effort lasts, the more carbohydrates you need. That is why it is advisable to choose a high energy gel for long or heavy training or competitions.

The high Energy gel has a stick format of 76 g, 200 kcal with 50 g carbohydrates per gel unit in a 1:1 ratio for complex and simple carbohydrates. In contrast to the isotonic gel, the high energy gel is best taken with water. A major advantage of the gels from 226ERS is that they are less thick and sweet than regular energy gels and contain only natural ingredients.

The aromas used are natural and achieve really good flavors: 

  • Lemon and Banana: pure formula, BCAA and caffeine free. 
  • BlackCurrant and Orange: with 1 g BCAAs in a ratio of 8:1:1 
  • Cherry: with 160 mg caffeine
