AMPED Fuel: A Runner’s Tool

Carbohydrates are key for runners, but can often be a source of gut problems. For this reason, AMPED™ Fuel was designed to be absorbed optimally and cause little to no gastrointestinal (GI) stress. A question we commonly get is, “How does AMPED Fuel actually work to help runners?” Now we’re breaking it down for you.

Nutrient Timing of AMPED Products for Endurance

Endurance athletes are unique in their nutritional requirements, largely due to the fact that endurance exercise requires greater amounts of fuel.

Endurance athletes also need to get adequate protein to offset muscle protein breakdown and hasten recovery.

Endurance athletes rely heavily on carbohydrates to fuel their performance before and during their training. When exercising for long periods, athletes burn quickly through glycogen (stored carbs in muscle) and the sugar in their bloodstreams (1-2). Eventually fuel stores run low and athletes hit a wall, exhausting themselves while hindering their performance.
