SFuels ZONE 5 Gel is designed to support the full spectrum of race-day intensities, providing essential fuel for muscles, heart and brain. It incorporates a range of substrates (fuels) including C8 and C10 Medium-Chain Fatty Acids, L-Glutamine, Maltodextrin, and Fructose.

SFuels ZONE 5 Gel exclusively uses rapid gut transit carbohydrates such as Maltodextrin and Fructose while avoiding slower transit sugars like glucose.  The ratio of Maltodextrin to Fructose in SFuels ZONE 5 Gel is a 2:1 ratio. This is based on the original research looking at optimum methods of Fructose-Maltodextrin co-ingestion, to raise overall carbohydrate oxidation to peak rates. SFuels ZONE 5 Gel, is not intended for daily-training usage. This helps
athletes avoid the de-training effects (blunted aerobic adaptions) from day-to-day over-consumption of Fructose.

SFuels selective use of specific MCT fatty acids, have been demonstrated to enhance gut-transit, and the absorption of maltodextrins, making them an even more effective choice of fuel delivery during racing.

Additionally, SFuels ZONE 5 Gel takes a 3 pronged approach to support Gut Distress and Gut Resilience during high-intensity racing.

This includes - 

  1. Reduced carbohydrate dependency and intake will lower the known risks of high-carbohydrate consumption during endurance racing.
  2. The gluten-free, and sugar-alcohol-free formulation of SFuels Zone 5 Gel minimizes the triggers known to add further risk of gut distress during racing
  3. SFuels substrate uses select MCT fatty acids to both fuel and provide nutrition to support Gut membrane integrity, which supports Gut resilience during racing.

SFuels ZONE 5 delivers >2.5X carbohydrate load per serve, compared to 1st generation SFuels RACE+ Gel powder.
