Product feature: OTE sports nutrition products have been designed and developed by professional nutritionists and athletes with over twenty years’ experience in performance sports. Available June 2013

OTE Sports (www.otesports.co.uk) take sport and nutrition seriously, just like you. Having worked with some of the world’s top athletes over many years, they have combined this experience with the latest innovations in performance nutrition to develop a cutting-edge range of naturally flavoured products to help sports people at all levels, ages and ability achieve their training and performance goals.

As well as developing great tasting functional products, they are also committed to providing industry-leading insight and information on diet, nutrition and training tips that have been tried and tested at the highest level to give you the edge. OTE products can be used before, during or after exercise as part of a healthy and varied diet.

Energy

We all know the critical nutritional factors that affect sports performance are hydration and energy supply. Climate, duration of exercise, and the intensity you intend to train or race at will also have a significant effect on your hydration and fueling strategy.

In general terms the basic advice of supplementing 40-90g of carbohydrate per hour of exercise to maintain blood glucose levels still remains true and is what you should be aiming to achieve dependent on the duration and intensity of your exercise. Carbohydrate should be taken alongside enough fluid as necessary to ensure you remain hydrated.

Refueling during training sessions of up to 60 minutes isn't necessary if your diet and pre-exercise meals contain sufficient carbohydrate, ensure you also remain hydrated prior to exercise.

The OTE Energy System is based around a 20g serving of carbohydrate. Our drinks and gels have been designed to contain 20g’s of carbohydrate and can be used ‘modularly’ to help you achieve the correct fuelling and hydration strategy, and to help you maintain this strategy throughout the duration of your event.

  • One 43g serving of OTE Energy Drink in 500ml of water provides 40g of Carbohydrate (two servings).
  • One OTE Energy Gel provides 20.5g of Carbohydrate.
  • At lower intensity levels solid food is an alternative fuelling option to gels.
  • As the intensity increases OTE technical sports nutrition products provide a more convenient and appropriate method of fuelling.

How do professional athletes use gels?

Professional athletes tend to use gels during training and competing when they need ‘instant’ energy or when the intensity of the exercise requires more carbohydrate. One common complaint from professionals is that many of the standard commercially available gels can cause stomach discomfort, especially if they need to consume a lot of gels during a race or long endurance event. We devoted an infinite amount of time to developing OTE real fruit gels. They are highly functional, easy to use, light on the stomach and taste great.

How do professional athletes use caffeine?
Caffeine is a naturally occurring stimulant found in food such as coffee, chocolate and the natural herb guarana. Professional athletes use caffeine during exercise to help mental stimulation, however, too much caffeine can cause ‘anxiety’ and reduce performance. OTE Caffeine Gel provides 50mg of caffeine from guarana, a natural plant. 50mg is about the right amount of caffeine to provide a pick up without the risk of ‘over dosing’.

A big advantage of OTE gels is that not only will they deliver energy to your working muscles when you need it most, but you can also use as many as you need without causing gastric distress or discomfort.
