All about our ingredients

Creating nutrition that delivers a tangible performance and health upgrade and which does athletes and their training justice means sourcing the highest-quality and most nutritious ingredients available, regardless of cost. This is a long read - we use a lot of ingredients

The big difference next to an ordinary sports nutrition ingredients list is immediately obvious: everything below is instantly recognisable as food. It doesn't read like a chemistry experiment or sound like the ingredients in question should be in shampoo.

If you think we're joking about the shampoo bit, maltodextrin and sodium benzoate, two of the most common ingredients in ordinary energy gels, actually are found in shampoo. This is why when it comes to your performance, at 33 we always look to nature first. Not the lab.
