Used by ultra distance athletes

All our products are developed hand in hand with elite athletes through the Näak Lab. Our mission is to build the most efficient and sustainable fuel for ultra distance sports. Today, thousands of professional and amateur athletes around the world depend on Näak to explore new playgrounds and redefine what is physically possible.

Backed by Science

Näak Ultra Energy™ science was developed to meet the specific needs of ultra distance athletes. The idea is simple: the ingestion of a few macronutrients such as carbohydrates and electrolytes is not enough to fuel ultra distances. After a few hours of effort, you need a complete nutrition approach to go farther.

Commonly Asked Questions

How should you use Näak Ultra Energy™ Drink Mix?

It is recommended to consume one serving (72g) of Näak Ultra Energy™ Drink Mix in 500-750ml of water per hour depending on the intensity of the exercise and the weather conditions (heat and humidity).

What are BCAAs used for?

Proteins and especially BCAAs increase the body's ability to use fat as an energy source. Consuming BCAAs will allow you to use them directly as fuel, instead of drawing energy from your muscle mass, thus limiting muscle breakdown, cramps or injuries.

How well is the protein digested during exercise?

Protein, if provided in controlled quantities and in an optimized form, does not pose any digestion problems during exercise. At Näak, we use plant-based protein isolates that have been concentrated to facilitate their absorption.

Why are electrolytes important?

Electrolytes are essential to help your body function optimally when you exercise. They control fluid balance, muscle contractions and regulate blood pressure. Näak products are rich in potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium, which are electrolytes lost in sweat.

What type of sugars are used in Näak Drink Mix?

A mix of dextrose, which is a simple sugar very quickly absorbed and converted into energy, and maltodextrin, which allows a slightly slower diffusion over time. The oats bring a more complex sugar which will be digested more slowly and will allow a very long duration energy.

Can you fuel up only on Näak Drink Mix?

Näak Ultra Energy™ Drink Mix was developed to provide you with all the nutrients you need during an ultra, especially when solid products are no longer available. You can take it alone or with other Näak products.

Mamas Homemade soup!

I was fully expecting this to taste very average, but it was actually amazing! It actually tastes like a homemade soup, could actually drink lots of it. I cant believe that I am able to get that much electrolytes down with a great tasting soup. I've had it hot and cold too, warm is very very good.

game changer

This is an absolute game changer. On long ultras especially on cold nights it can be really hard to eat. Sweet stuff doesn't taste good and nothing is sitting right. Broth is the only thing that works, but alas, it's essentially no calories. Enter - Näak's Salted Soup. It's so good that I want to eat it even when not running. I can't wait to try this for longer events.
