About the Product

This is a special product meant for endurance athletes who wish to improve their endurance when operating above the second lactate threshold. In other words, it allows you to push harder during short periods (3 to 15 minutes) of extreme intensity. The product is based on sodium bicarbonate, which preserves pH levels. This reduces muscle soreness and fatigue, allowing you to push harder and farther.

“We developed this sports drink with long and high intensity exercise in mind, We added sodium bicarbonate, one of the most well researched ergogenic aids, to the classic NRGY Unit Drink. By doing that, we created a great product for long races that feature intense efforts in the late parts of the races. – Dr. Tim Podlogar

Beyond the Limit

Improve your endurance above your lactate threshold. Reduce soreness and fatigue of your muscles when operating at maximum intensity.

High Energy Intake

Nrgy Unit Drink is designed to allow high-energy intakes. Two servings per hour will get you through your hardest challenges.

Optimal Carbohydrate Ratio

A combination of glucose and fructose in the 1:0.8 ratio is proven by science to be optimal for carbohydrate absorption during intense exercise.

No Digestive Issues

Without excess glucose stuck in your gut or too much magnesium irritating your bowels, you greatly limit the risk of digestive issues.

No Muscle Cramps

Muscle cramps are usually caused by a lack of energy. A high energy intake during intense exercise is the best way to protect your muscles.
