EnergySource is a new generation sports drink for use during exercise. It contains a carbohydrate formulation of maltodextrin and fructose in a ratio of 2:1 and key electrolytes. Many of the world's leading event organisers and Pro athletes choose award-winning EnergySource for success in the toughest endurance eveResearch suggests that you should consume a maximum of 60g carbohydrate per hour from traditional sports drinks. The recommended intake for new generation Energy Source with 2:1 fructose can be substantially higher, at up to 90 gram per hour. The ingredients in EnergySource help sustain performance during tough endurance events and help maintain hydration by enhancing the absorption of water.

The electrolyte level in EnergySource should be adequate for most race conditions. However, when sweat rates are very high, we recommend adding a High5 ZERO Neutral tab to every 500ml of EnergySource to boost the electrolyte content further.
Protein Recovery is the ultimate drink for after exercise and the Pro's choice. The whey isolate used in Protein Recovery is a high quality source of protein. Protein contributes to muscle growth and maintenance. Protein Recovery also contains carbohydrate. After exercise, your muscles are often low in glycogen (carbohydrate).
Protein Recovery gives similar benefits to 4:1 EnergySource, but there are a number of key differences. Protein Recovery has a higher protein content. It can also be mixed with milk or water, whereas 4:1 EnergySource can only be mixed with water. Some sports drinks can be acidic. Protein Recovery mixed with cold milk is neutral and it can make a pleasant change, especially if you are training hard for many hours a day.
EnergyGel is smooth with a light consistency and a dash of real juice for a great taste. It's not thick or overly sweet. Easy to open and swallow, each sachet contains 23g of carbohydrate. EnergyGel is award-winning and proven in many of the World's toughest competitions.
Which High5 gel to choose: EnergyGel or IsoGel? Both types of gel do the same job. However, IsoGel has a lighter consistency somewhere between a drink and a gel. EnergyGel has a slightly thicker consistency, but is less bulky and lighter in weight, which makes it easier to carry in larger quantities.
Zero Active Hydration Tablets
ZERO is the UK's leading electrolyte sports drink tab. It produces a clean-tasting and highly refreshing drink with zero calories. The tabs contain light natural flavours with no artificial colours or preservatives. ZERO contains Vitamin C and 5 electrolytes, including sodium, magnesium and potassium.
Vitamin C in ZERO supports a healthy immune system, protects the cells from oxidative stress and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium in ZERO contributes to electrolyte balance, reduces tiredness and fatigue, whilst supporting muscle protein synthesis. During exercise, athletes can be at risk from Hyponatremia, also known as water intoxication, which is generally the result of drinking excessive amounts of plain water with no electrolytes during endurance events. This causes a low concentration of sodium in the blood. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (April, 2005) found that 13 percent of Boston Marathon runners developed Hyponatremia from drinking too much plain water.
Simply drop a tab into your re-usable sports bottle and watch it rapidly dissolve. The 20-tab tube makes up to 15 litres of drink, so it's great value for money. With minimal packaging, ZERO is environmentally friendly and easy to keep with you. The easy-break tabs mean that you can choose your ideal drink strength.
