Power Gums

POWER GUMS from SPONSER® supply the body with quickly available and easily digestible carbohydrates during sport. The popular energy bites, conveniently to portion, serve as a trusted alternative or to supplement LIQUID ENERGY gels. One pack contains 10 pcs. POWER GUMS, which can be taken both during and shortly before physical activity. They provide about 60 g of carbohydrates and thus correspond to a generally recommended amount of energy per hour during exercise.

POWER GUMS are available in 2 variants/flavours:

Version FRUITMIX
Contains 150 mg caffeine (= approx. 2 cups of coffee) per pack (10 pcs.) for the "extra kick" to support physical and mental performance. Caffeine helps to improve concentration and alertness, and helps to improve stamina. Enriched with taurine and a vitamin B-complex.

Version COLA
As a caffeine-free version, the product contains the three branch-chained amino acids (BCAA) instead as well as taurine. BCAAs are essential protein building blocks and reduce the breakdown of endogenous BCCA from muscles during exercise.

Effects of Caffeine

Caffeine in sports: position stand of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN)

The times when caffeine was on the doping list are long gone. But that does not mean that caffeine has no influence on athletic performance. Quite the opposite. The position stand of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) is very clear and summarizes the most important caffeine findings:

• Taking a sufficient dose of caffeine about 1060 minutes before exercise can increase concentration, alertness, and both anaerobic and aerobic endurance.

• Caffeine increases athletic performance at a dosage of 36 mg/kg body weight. A further improvement is not expected at higher doses. Conversely, however, too high doses (> 9 mg/kg) can produce adverse effects such as nervousness.

• Caffeine is more effective in free form compared to bound caffeine, as found in coffee, guarana or tea. One cup of coffee contains about 60100 mg of caffeine in bound form.

• Caffeine can increase alertness under prolonged stress, but also during periods of little sleep. This is not only important for participants in ultraendurance events, but also in mountain sports and on expeditions, as well as for students and during activities such as long car journeys.

• Caffeine is performanceenhancing during longlasting endurance activities and highly effective during timetrial performances (e.g. time trials).

• Caffeine is also beneficial for highintensity exercise, including team and ball sports such as soccer and tennis, which are characterized by intermittent exercise over a long period of time.

• The scientific evidence shows no caffeinerelated fluid loss or other adverse changes in fluid balance that could affect performance.

• There is evidence that taking lowenergy caffeine drinks/shots during targeted training for endurance or weight loss also promotes a small additional fat reduction, compared to exercise alone. However, it is necessary to use only lowenergy products for this purpose.

Caffeine in Sports

Dosage recommendations for caffeine

Caffeine can significantly contribute to improving endurance performance. Many studies that have proven the positive effect of caffeine in competition have assumed a performance duration of about one hour. There are no studies on events lasting more than 24 hours.

Ideally, the intake of caffeine should be timed to suit specific phases in competition (performance decline, final phase, night-time, etc.). It is therefore advantageous to plan the intake times in order to coincide with the (mentally and physically) demanding performance phases.

Basically, the recommended dosage for caffeine in sports is around 3-4 mg/kg body weight. A person weighing 70 kg would consume 210-280 mg of caffeine, for example. The effectiveness curve of caffeine runs from about 30-40 minutes after ingestion to 3-4 hours afterwards. Afterwards, caffeine must be replenished. Negative effects due to overdose can only occur from 5-6 mg/kg body weight within this time period. However, this would primarily affect cognitive and not physical performance factors.
