Hammer is supplying it’s HEED drink for the Gold Coast 1/2 Ironman. HEED was chosen for 3 main reasons:
- It’s easy to consume. It has no sickly sweet taste, only a mild natural flavour which encourages consumption all day long. The temperature can be in excess of 30c, and athletes need something they can easily get down.
- It only uses complex carbs (no simple sugars) which maintain a consistent blood sugar level, unlike sports drinks with ingredients ending with “ose” ( glucose, fructose, sucrose, dextrose etc) which are simple sugars that spike the blood sugars levels.
- HEED contains a good cross section of electrolytes at the right level. Some drinks contain excessive amounts of electrolytes such as magnesium which the body can not absorb and end up causing intestinal problems.
