The secret is hydrogel
Maurten starts out as a liquid in your water bottle like any other sports drink. When it reaches the acidity of your stomach it instantly converts to a hydrogel.
The hydrogel takes all the carbohydrates in the liquid and encapsulates them. The hydrogel then passes through your stomach to the intestine where the carbohydrates are absorbed at a much faster rate than in your stomach.
Plus you won't feel sick or nauseas. It is just like drinking a regular sports drink.
