About Science in Sport Turbo+ Powder
Turbo+ Powder is an isotonic carbohydrate energy drink containing 62g carbohydrate combined with menthol extract. This unique blend of carbohydrate and menthol is designed to meet in-session fuelling requirements whilst also helping to reduce the increased thermal stress that occurs with indoor turbo training sessions. Turbo+ Powder is designed to be used as a mouth rinse and drink strategy at regular intervals during exercise to exert its maximum benefit.
Exercise capacity and performance is often reduced when exercising in hot conditions due to both elevated physiological strain and feelings of thermal discomfort.
One of the main contributors to the early onset of fatigue in hot environments is enhanced feelings of discomfort and a perception of being hot and uncomfortable. With this in mind, Turbo+ Powder is formulated with menthol extract to improve the ability to tolerate such heat stress by reducing thermal perception through the refreshing and cooling sensations that menthol evokes.
Through these mechanisms, menthol consumption during exercise makes it easier to breathe and results in improvements in both time trial and time to exhaustion exercise performance.
Exercise in the heat also increases the reliance on carbohydrate as a fuel. The combination of menthol and carbohydrate therefore provides both a cooling and energy benefit. The rinse and drink strategy for Turbo+ Powders is also beneficial given that carbohydrate stimulates receptors within the mouth which have a stimulatory effect on the central nervous system (CNS) and ultimately enhances exercise performance.
