“Exercise scientists say they have stumbled on an amazing discovery. Athletes can improve their performance in intense bouts of exercise, lasting an hour or so, if they merely rinse their mouths with a carbohydrate solution. They don’t even have to swallow it.”New York Times
Here's How It Works
Carb-rinsing stimulates your mouth’s CHO (carbohydrate) sensors.
These sensors send signals to the brain, activating areas associated with pleasure, reward, motivation and motor control.
Your perception of fatigue is reduced and power output is increased, resulting in an instant boost.
“Having experienced the benefits of carbohydrate rinsing for several years now, it’s great to finally have a product designed for this specific use. Fuelling is key in Ironman and Unit Nutrition has provided the link, that in my opinion, has been missing.”
“It is great to see a company finally translate some really important research findings into a product so that athletes can benefit from it!”

Also, the nutrition professional in me supports such a product due to the ample research demonstrating its effectiveness as a cognitive fuel source.”
