Liquid Energy BCAA
The overview, «LIQUID ENERGY GELS in Comparison».
LIQUID ENERGY BCAA is a highly concentrated energy gel for fast and long-lasting energy supply from glucose, fructose and isomaltulose. The conveniently dosable tube contains furthermore the amino acids BCAA and taurine. The branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine (BCAA) are burned as fuel by the muscles under stress. The supplemental BCAA spares the BCAA from the muscle's own structure under exertion and thus helps to optimize recovery time. Results from studies suggest that BCAA have an influence on the central fatigue system and may attenuate perceived exertion. Therefore, LIQUID ENERGY BCAA is particularly suitable for long-lasting endurance activities. Taurine, on the other hand, is an important antioxidant which helps protect tissue from oxidative damage.
BCAA: More load, less fatigue
What oil is to cars, BCAA: Branched-chain amino acids are to athletes. BCAA are the branched-chain amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine, which can be used by the muscles both as building materials and as fuels. They play an important role in the sports nutrition of strength athletes but also endurance athletes, because they can counteract central fatigue in the body under stress.
Endurance athletes therefore benefit from BCAA supplied during exertion because the body's own reserves are conserved. During physical exertion, BCAA are increasingly used by the body to provide energy with increasing duration and, if not supplied, the body's own reserves of muscle tissue are attacked. Decreasing BCAA levels also have a negative effect on central fatigue and the feeling of stress through their influence on tryptophane, another essential amino acid, and indirectly on serotonin. A supply of BCAA already during performance can therefore protect the muscles by first metabolizing the ingested BCAA.
Strength athletes appreciate BCAA mainly because of their importance as anabolic signal generators for muscle protein synthesis, especially leucine. BCAA can thus strengthen the effect of protein, which is crucial for muscle building and maintenance. In this function, BCAA naturally also have a direct influence on recovery, which is interesting for all competitive athletes.
Endurance athletes ideally use BCAA during long-term endurance stresses (cycling and biking marathons, gigathlon, ironman, long-distance triathlon, etc.) and also together with regeneration products. Strength athletes can take BCAA shortly before the workout and/or strengthen the post-workout protein shake.
In amino acid metabolism BCAA are also used for the body's own production of glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and the requirement often exceeds its availability during high stress and especially in the case of injuries or muscle-wasting diseases. Supplementation with BCAA can therefore also help the body to synthesize glutamine, which indirectly helps prevent the breakdown of body protein for glutamine production. Glutamine also promotes glycogen resynthesis and supports immune function. All in all, BCAA and glutamine play an important role in regeneration after physical exercise due to their properties.
BCAA is available from SPONSER in several forms
Powder for addition in shakes and drinks in individual dosages. Available as a neutral powder or with cola flavour.
In a can with 350 capsules (256 g). Strength athletes ideally take BCAA capsules in two servings each shortly before and shortly after training: 2 capsules per 10 kg body weight divided into two portions. Endurance athletes consume 2-4 capsules per hour during long endurance efforts and another 1 capsule per 10 kg body weight shortly after the performance.
Contains about 1100 mg BCAA per ampoule. The ampoules are practical to take with you, whether in a cycling jersey or sports bag, and are therefore ideal for both endurance and strength sports.
LIQUID ENERGY BCAA
Combines 42 g of carbohydrates with 500 mg BCAA and 400 mg taurine per tube (70 g). This energy gel is ideal during long-term endurance training and can also be used regeneratively. Application: ½ Tube every 20-30 minutes. Rinse with 200 ml water.

LIQUID ENERGY GELS
Benefit and application
LIQUID ENERGY GELS stand for high energy density with optimal compatibility. This highly concentrated energy in liquid form is ideal for workouts in which breathing and athletic performance must not be compromised by chewing or digestion. LIQUID ENERGY GELS are available as resealable tubes or sachets and can be used right before a workout or during high intensity activities. SPONSER® offers many different varieties which can easily be combined.16. 04. 2020

Interview David Hauss
Interview with trailrunner David Hauss
David, what are your next key races and how is preparation going so far?
I raced a lot in the last few weeks so far, some easy days are consumed and now I'm back on track! Big days of training right now then I will go in training camp in Alpe d’Huez for three weeks end of July to prepare the CCC, 101 km race around Mont Blanc in the UTMB event end of August. Then I'll looking forward to the Diagonal des Fous in Réunion Island two months later.
What are your key aspects when it comes to nutrition and trail running? What is your nutrition tip number one for trail runners?
On the ultra-trail rail races nutrition is all about! It makes the difference at the end for sure between winning or finishing – if you are still able. My key rule is getting carbs/sugar enough to push all the way so I need to set the clock on 30’/45' time, having my HIGH ENERGY BARS and LIQUID ENERGY GELS during my run. Let’s say my first advice is to be regular in terms of nutrition/ hydration whatever and whenever you are! Also have a «pleasure meal» somewhere in the race to break the routine.
What is the biggest nutrition mistake you ever did in a race?
I didn't really make a bike mistake in the race so far but during some warm races, I didn't drink enough at the beginning of the race thinking «all good» but I paid it cash later and it takes time to be able to push again.
What are your favourite SPONSER products?
My two favourite SPONSER product will be the Vanilla MULTI PROTEIN shake because it means that the job has be done properly and I need to well recover. The second will be the LIQUID ENERGY BCAA GEL, it saved me so many times during races from bad situations and pushes me faster to the finish line. But there are many products like ELECTROLYTES that I like too.22. 07. 2019
