Maxifuel Electrotabs

These new fizzy tablets from Maxifuel work on the notion that training on an empty stomach is good for building endurance. Pop one into a bike bottle, and within seconds you’ll have a drink that’s low on calories and high on the essential electrolytes that boost hydration. The drink mixes quickly and easily and saves you from scooping powder into a bottle and shaking it until your arm aches. To reduce calories, the sweetness is provided by artificial sugars such as saccharin and as a result the drink is palatable rather than tasty. If you don’t mind the taste and you’re happy to drink something that contains artificial sweeteners then Electrotabs do a first-rate job of quenching your thirst quickly. They’re one way of cutting non-essential calories too, as long as you don’t expect them to fuel you up on long ride or run.

Low-calorie isotonic drink tablets that work wonders for dehydration.
