During endurance exercise your body needs carbohydrates for energy to help maintain your performance. You may also become dehydrated if you do not replace the water and electrolytes lost through sweat. Isotonic is a scientifically formulated carbohydrate and electrolyte solution to help you sustain your performance and enhance your hydration during endurance exercise.
This is a 2:1 fructose mix similar to Energy Drink except for a lower carbohydrate concentration and a higher electrolyte content when mixed as directed. In hot conditions, when sweat rates are high, athletes often prefer a “weaker” mixed sports drink with a lower carbohydrate concentration. This can be consumed more easily at higher volumes.
Research on traditional sports drinks suggests that you can only consume 60g carbohydrate per hour, however, because Isotonic is a 2:1 fructose mix, you can consume substantially more carbohydrates – up to 90g per hour in fact. That means you get 50% more energy!

Since changing to the 2:1 formulation Isotonic has become less “concentrated” and is now a hypotonic drink.
Consume as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. ¹Carbohydrate-electrolyte solutions enhance the absorption of water during physical exercise and contribute to the maintenance of endurance performance during prolonged endurance exercise
