Did you know?
Very often it's possible to find in the market energy supplements based on caffeine, such as our energy gel Energen 30 ml.
The caffeine is used in sport because it is a substance ergogenic able to reduce the sense of fatigue quickly; for this reason it is recommended to use during sport exercises.
Just be careful how you use it and in what amounts. In fact, caffeine also acts as a diuretic and may cause dehydration and consequently a reduction of the physical performance. Consider that a loss of water higher than 3.2% of body weight is enough to worsen athletic performance.
For these reasons it is recommended a limited use, indicated in particular in the second part of the training / race.
