Wat is SUB9 sportvoeding? En wat doet het?

What is SUB9 sports nutrition? And what does it do?

, by Dennis Florussen, 9 min reading time

The SUB9 line, What is it, what does it do, and who is it for? We would like to tell you more about it in our blog.

SUB9 is a household name for many triathletes. If you are a SUB9 athlete in the long distance triathon, you are well ahead of the field, so to speak. Does this mean that the SUB9 line is only for SUB9 athletes? No definitely not! With this name, 226ERS indicates that the products have been specially developed for long training and competitions. So 4 hours plus. Ideal for all endurance athletes.

By developing the SUB9 line, 226ERS has pushed the boundaries of what a human body can process during long training/competitions. Extra additions that you need as an endurance athlete for long distances, for example some protein in SUB9 Energy drink , so that your body gets the chance to recover even during your long ride. Everything to enable your maximum performance in the long distance triathlon. Or just during your long workouts.

The SUB9 line consists of the following items:

SUB9 Race day Soft lemon (Energy drink)
This is currently the energy sports drink with the most carbohydrates per serving. To ensure that 82g of carbohydrates and 332 kcal can be absorbed, 226ERS has developed an energy drink that the stomach can easily process. 

These next-generation carbohydrates are more efficient at replenishing glycogen in the body: 

  • They ensure a long-lasting, perfect release of energy during and after exercise. 
  • Fewer insulin peaks, promoting the use of glucose at the cellular level over a shorter period of time and maintaining blood sugar levels for longer. 
  • Rapid gastric emptying thanks to its high molecular weight and low osmolarity, promotes digestion. 
  • Does not inhibit fat burning. 
  • Provides virtually 1g of BCAAs in an 8:1:1 ratio with extra Leucine per serving. The combination of these essential amino acids is perfect for endurance sports.
  • Metabolic energy for the muscles. 
  • Maintenance of glycogen levels. 
  • An anabolic effect (mainly thanks to leucine) and actively participates in the process of muscle recovery. 
  • Contains 230mg L-Carnitine, derived from L-carnitine L-tartrate, a stabilized form of L-carnitine. The absorption rate is slightly higher than with other forms of L-carnitine. 
  • It helps transport long-chain fatty acids into cellular mitochondria, increasing energy supply to the muscles and promoting blood flow in the area. 
  • Increases the production of ketones that prevent protein catabolism. 
  • Conserves glucose and muscle glycogen to improve performance and recovery and reduce damage to muscle tissue. 
  • Provides 460mg of sodium from the use of sea salt. At high temperatures and high humidity it can be supplemented with additional sodium, preferably with capsules, at the rate of 1g sodium per liter of water. 

SUB9 RACE DAY is suitable for vegans. It comes in a single dose with a mild lemon flavor. 

SUB9 Energy drink
SUB9 Energy provides you with the necessary carbohydrates 39g per dose, to guarantee the necessary energy for your long training or competition. It also offers 4.5g of protein per serving, with rapid absorption and BCAAs. 8.1.1. 

Sodium, the mineral that our body uses the most during exercise, has been added to SUB9 Energy drink. Furthermore, it contains the following properties:

  • Amylopectin as an energy source
  • Up to 80% faster absorbed by the stomach. 
  • Up to 70% faster glycogen replenishment. 
  • Whey isolate. Several studies have shown that consuming a mixture of carbohydrates with a high glycemic content, such as amylopectin and whey isolate, improves performance in endurance sports and extends the time before exhaustion is reached. 
  • BCAAs (8.1.1) + TYROSINE. If we increase the intake of branched-chain amino acids such as leucine (8.1.1) and add tyrosine, we prevent a reduction in the precursors of important neurotransmitters such as dopamine. 
  • TAURINE L-CARNITINE. Taurine has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and increases the oxidation of fats as an energy substrate, which together with the carnitine improves its transport to the mitochondria. The use of fat stimulates the small intestine and maintains the reserves of glycogen, which are essential in endurance sports. This helps improve the athlete's health. 

SUB9 Pro Salts Electrolytes
These capsules with caffeine ensure reduced fatigue and improved energy efficiency during exercise. Each capsule contains 250mg sodium, 54mg potassium, 2.5mg calcium and 19.7mg magnesium. 

It also contains vitamin D to aid in the absorption and use of calcium, and vitamin B6, which is essential for enzymes to work properly to facilitate protein metabolism. 

  • Contains 40 mg caffeine per capsule 
  • Caffeine reduces fatigue and improves energy efficiency during exercise 
  • Contains sodium, magnesium, vitamin D and B6 
  • Good for muscle function and to reduce muscle cramps 
  • Ideal during warm conditions 
  • Gluten-free and suitable for vegans. 

SUB9 Salts Electrolytes
The 226ERS SUB9 Salts Electrolytes contain ginger extract to improve digestion, one of the biggest problems during long training or competitions. So if you often experience stomach and intestinal problems when taking electrolytes, these are highly recommended. 

The SUB9-SALTS have the amount of sodium 215mg and magnesium 10.05mg, 54.01mg potassium. 

  • Food supplement based on ginger, vitamins and minerals 
  • Contains 100 capsules 
  • Contains sodium, magnesium, vitamin D and B6 
  • Gluten-free and vegan-proof 
  • Supports fluid balance 
  • Perfect for situations of heat and/or high humidity during exercise 
  • To reduce muscle cramps and prevent a drop in performance due to dehydration during exercise. 

SUB9 Vegan Gummy bar Mango or SUB9 Vegan Gummies
These delicious bars and gummies are very easy to eat due to the jelly texture. They are also a source of carbohydrates. The consumption of carbohydrates helps maintain glucose in the blood, provides energy and ensures high physical performance. They are 30-gram bars with a jelly texture that makes them ideal for both training and competitions. 

A gummy bar contains the same amount of energy as one Bio Energy Gel, but their bar size makes them easier to eat. Consists of mainly organic ingredients, based on brown sugar and rice syrup. The bars and gummies also contain: 

  • BCAAs 8:1:1, Branched Chain Amino Acids, Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine are metabolized in the muscle, unlike most amino acids which are metabolized in the liver. They help maintain glycogen levels, in addition to an anabolic effect (especially thanks to leucine), they actively participate in the muscle recovery process. 
  • TYROSINE: Involved in the production of the amino acids that maintain brain functioning, so it positively affects mental energy and performance. 
  • TAURINE: naturally increases strength and endurance. Decreases protein catabolism. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and increases the oxidation of fats as an energy substrate. 
  • SODIUM 60mg: This is essential for the functioning of cells, body fluids and regulation of blood pressure, blood volume and pH. 
  • Very pleasant to eat because of their texture, they are easy to chew and digest.
  • Easy to take with you during your training or competition. 
  • The 30 g bar offers approximately the same energy as in a Bio Energy Gel. 

So are you training for the long distance? Or do you do a lot of long workouts? Then the sub9 line is highly recommended. Of course, it is also essential to first test what you can and cannot tolerate before using it in a competition. Because personal preference always comes first.
