Pure science, no bollocks

Scientific Research

Bollox Energy Gel was developed and tested in cooperation with world renowned Temasek Polytechnic in Singapore using solid scientific research. The combination of the Bollox ingredients provides a powerful energy boost and significant scientific research has been carried out to prove the stimulating effects of this nutrient mix.

The 3 main ingredients of Bollox Energy Gel are:
1) A blend of fructose and maltodextrine in a 0.8:1 ratio,
2) Na, K and Mg electrolytes mix and
3) amino acid taurine.
Below you can read more about all the performance enhancing properties of these 3 components.

The 3 Main Bollox Ingredients

1. A blend of fructose and maltodextrine in a 0.8:1 ratio

Solutions containing multiple carbohydrates utilizing different intestinal transporters (glucose and fructose) show enhanced performance compared with single-carbohydrate solutions. Glucose has a high GI index (increases blood sugar immediately) while fructose has a much lower GI index and raises blood sugar levels more gradually. Therefore, this combination is great for endurance exercise. Studies have suggested that a blend of fructose and maltodextrin in a 0.8:1 ratio may lead to enhanced performance while improving gut comfort.

2. Na, K, Mg electrolyte mix

Electrolytes are minerals which, when dissolved in water, break into small, electrically charged particles called ions. There are numerous common electrolytes found in your body, each serving a specific role, but they all are in some part responsible for maintaining the balance of fluids between the environments inside and outside the cell. When you sweat you lose electrolytes and especially longer workouts can empty your body of large amounts of electrolytes and create an electrolyte imbalance. Electrolyte imbalances can be pretty detrimental to your health and performance. For example, muscle contraction, requires sufficient electrolytes and an electrolyte deficiency may result in muscle weakness or cramping. Bullox energy gel contains the main electrolytes Sodium (Na), Potassium (K) and Magnesium (Mg) which help maintaining a healthy electrolyte balance and enhance performance.

3. Taurine

Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which means that your body produces it in only in small amounts so the majority of taurine must come from your diet. Research has shown that intense exercise significantly lowers muscle taurine levels, but that the intake of taurine during exercise counters the loss of taurine and helps improve work capacity. Moreover, taurine significantly decreases the accumulated concentration of lactate over during prolonged exercise. Click on the “+” below to read the summary of the related scientific article.
