What’s in ZV1 Energy Drink Elite? ZV1 contains an easily digested source of Carbohydrates and exclusive grade of maltodextrin to prevent stomach upsets and maximize energy delivery. The comprehensive electrolyte blend in ZV1 closely mimics the amounts and concentrations of key electrolytes lost in human sweat and replaces key minerals to prevent cramping. That’s why you won’t just find sodium, but iodine, copper, magnesium and many more … all in their most easily absorbed forms.
Why doesn’t ZV1 contain potassium? Research shows that during prolonged or intense exercise circulating levels of potassium actually rise. By adding more potassium some drinks can actually increase the problems caused by electrolyte imbalances, increasing the risk of cramping.
How should I use ZV1 Energy Drink Elite? When taken before exercise it can be used to ensure good levels of hydration. Taken during exercise ZV1 helps prevent dehydration and maintains energy levels.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Works for me, lower sugar content
I find the balance of sugar, maltodextrin, electrolytes and the tart citrus flavour works for me. It's hardly sweet so I can continue drinking on long rides without that over-sweet taste. More of the carbs in this come from maltodextrin, which makes for better gastric emptying, better absorption & transport to the muscles, and less damaging liver overload from fructose (yes, do your research). The electrolyte levels suit me.
It does leave a small, slightly gritty sediment, so the bottle needs a shake or two right before starting the ride, and when taking the last from the bottle.
