Energy Drink Mix Watermelon - NEW !

Discover our new and improved recipe, now with a perfect dilution and allergen-free.

Fuel your ultra distance on liquid energy. Näak Ultra Energy™ Drink Mix provides 250 calories per 500ml of water. Fast-acting and easy to ingest, it provides all the nutrients you need to race an ultra.

Overview

Developed with pro athletes, Näak Ultra Energy™ Drink Mix is the first drink mix that provides complete proteins (EAAs) and BCAAs at optimized levels for long-term efforts, preventing the degradation of muscle fibers during a long and intense physical activity.

Fueling specs

- 250 calories: get all your calories in a liquid form
- 55g carbohydrates: simple and complex natural carbohydrates
- 650mg electrolytes: replenish minerals lost in sweat and prevent cramping
- 1300mg BCAAs: prevent muscle breakdown during exercise
- 8g protein: all essential amino acids to reduce muscle fatigue

Now made with :
- Palatinose™: as a replacement for oat flour. Derived from sugar beet, this sugar is gradually absorbed by the body, resulting in a less pronounced drop in blood sugar levels.
- Canola protein: replacing the soy and pea proteins, it provides the largest rang possible of amino acids

Ingredients

Sugars (dextrose, maltodextrin, Palatinose™ (isomaltulose)*), canola protein isolate, natural watermelon flavor, sea salt, citric acid, potassium citrate, magnesium citrate, vegetable juice extract.
May contain: Soy, milk, eggs. People allergic to mustard may also be allergic to canola protein.

*Isomaltulose is a natural source of glucose and fructose, derived from sugar beet.

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.

Perfect ultra nutrition

After suffering from GI upset from my latest ultra, I switched to NAAK drink mix. Both flavours go down so easily and no GI upset at all. Was able to maintain my hydration, have electrolytes and carbs in the same drink. So practical!
