No matter your level of fitness it is important to energise to get the nutritional support you need to help you reach your fitness performance goals.
The first step ENERGISE, is all about preparing your body for the activity ahead.
Both caffeine and carbohydrates are the main drivers behind energising before exercise.
Carbohydrates help to give your body energy as it serves as the body’s preferred energy source.*
Caffeine however works differently in the fact that once your glycogen stores (carbohydrate stores) start to deplete, it encourages the body to utilise fat as fuel helping to conserve energy over long periods of time and support prolongation of exercise. Caffeine also helps to reduce fatigue, increase heart rate and blood flow to our muscles.**
XS Sport Nutrition offers a variety of energising supplements to help prepare you for your workout ahead.
