Torq Energy Drink is a naturally flavoured high carbohydrate energy drink, containing no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. This product has been painstakingly formulated so that it delivers Torq's unique blend of carbohydrate and electrolytes to the working muscles through a drink that is lightly flavoured, refreshing and most importantly Natural.
2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose: This drink’s ingredient matrix has been brought in line with some of the most recent research into energy drink formulation. Two published studies in 2005 offered quite staggering results when Maltodextrin (a long-chain glucose polymer) was mixed with Fructose (fruit sugar) at a 2:1 ratio and since then, many more studies have demonstrated similar benefits.
Although Maltodextrin alone has been proven to be considerably more effective than Fructose in isolation, when the two are mixed in this 2:1 ratio, significantly more carbohydrate is made available for use. These studies have demonstrated that a 2:1 Maltodextrin to Fructose mix caused athletes to absorb and use 40% more carbohydrate compared with consuming maltodextrin alone.
What are the benefits? Quite simply, the increased availability of carbohydrate means that you will be able to sustain a higher pace for longer using Torq energy, making this product the most advanced formulation available to endurance athletes on the market today.
Electrolytes: Torq energy contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.
Natural Flavours and No Colours or Preservatives: Under exercise stress, digestion is affected as blood is diverted to the working muscles, so irrespective of the health debate surrounding the consumption of artificial ingredients, during exercise is certainly not the time to take them. Therefore we only use natural flavours that the body can recognise and break down easily and we don't use colours or preservatives (artificial or natural), because they simply don't need to be in the product.
No Artificial Sweeteners: For the same reasons as highlighted above, Torq don't believe in the use of artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Acsulfame-K, Saccharine and Sucralose. These artificial sweeteners are 100's of times sweeter than sugar and Aspartame/Acsulfame-K in particular have a very dubious reputation when it comes to health. Type either of them into Google and you'll get the general idea.
