Energy Drink Breakthrough Claimed
Maurten, a new Swedish company, is claiming that they have developed a new energy drink that allows more carbohydrate to be taken/digested at each feeding. Normally, increased carbos leads to slower gastric emptying and, in some, cramping. this results in the often anecdotally reported limit of about 300 calories/hour of carbo intake. Maurten claims to have broken this "barrier" and said that Kenenisa Bekele used it when he ran the second fastest marathon ever last week in Berlin. It is not available yet, but they say it will be available sometime in 2017.
