Currently available in Orange flavour Each 38g sachet of High5 Energy Gel Plus contains 23g of carbs, 35 mg of caffeine and 35 mg of Choline. Over 85% of all studies focusing on the use of caffeine among athletes demonstrate that caffeine offers significant advantages. In controlled amounts, caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, increases the release of adrenaline, and aids in the use of body fat as a fuel. The 35 mg of caffeine in each sachet of Energy Gel Plus is equal to about 2/3 cup of coffee. Nerves cause muscles to contract by pushing small quantities of a chemical called acetylcholine across the neuromuscular space between the muscle and the nerve. Should you run out of acetylcholine then your muscles will not be able to contract no matter how much energy you have left. During prolonged exercise Acetylcholine is broken down inside the neuromuscular junctions. Nerve cells then "grab" the Choline floating by in the blood, using it to make new acetylcholine and as a result, your blood Choline levels start decreasing. Naturally, if your exercise period goes on long enough, such as training for and competing in a marathon, your body's Choline levels will fall too low and acetylcholine production will come to a standstill and your nerve cells will simply refuse to stimulate your muscles resulting in you coming to a virtual standstill. Choline is available in foods such as: liver, cauliflower, soybeans, spinach, lettuce, nuts, and eggs. However, the bottom line is that even a natural diet made up of Choline rich foods would not prevent the drop in blood Choline levels which happen after 12 miles or so of marathon running or any exercise period lasting more than 90 minutes. Therefore to maintain your body's supply of Choline each sachet of High5 Energy Gel Plus contains 35mg of Choline which, when taken every 5 miles or so will provide you with enough Choline to keep you going to the finish at your target pace.
