Consistency, exclusive carbohydrate blend and incomparable flavor, these are some of the many differentiating features of our gels. Here you understand better about Z2 Gels, and why there is simply no comparison.


In general, its effects on the body consist of increasing the state of alert and reducing the sensation of fatigue/effort, which can increase the ability to carry out certain activities, consequently generating an improvement in performance. Caffeine is a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant and its mechanism of action consists of blocking adenosine receptors in the brain and consequently reducing the sensation of effort. According to the most recent studies, the recommended dose of caffeine to improve performance is 3 to 6 mg/caffeine per kg of weight.


As important as carbohydrate intake, correct replacement of fluids and electrolytes is essential for performance in long-term activities. Sodium is the main ion in the extracellular environment and also the most abundant in sweat (the concentration of sodium lost in sweat is individual and circumstantial, but is generally between 500-700mg per liter). Sodium contributes to muscle contraction and also plays an important role in fluid retention.


Taurine is an amino acid present in abundance in the human body and is also the main ingredient in several energy drinks. Taurine has a recognized antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, but its greatest benefit during physical activity is related to its action in regulating calcium in skeletal muscle, which assists in muscle contraction, and its participation in the production of energy by the muscles. muscles. Like BCAAs, taurine supplementation has also shown a reduction in markers of muscle damage after physical activity, and consequently improving muscle recovery.

Z2+ | BCAA

BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) are made up of valine, leucine and isoleucine, considered essential amino acids that we need to acquire through food or supplements. They are mainly important for athletes and those who practice physical activity, aiming to promote muscle protein anabolism, reducing the intensity of muscle injuries and fatigue, ensuring better performance. Furthermore, its consumption helps to delay the depletion of muscle glycogen stores and increase sports performance.


Developed by athletes, our gels have a more liquid consistency, do not become soggy and do not require immediate water intake.


The exclusive blend of Z2 gels was developed to offer fast and long-lasting energy. With 25g of carbohydrates, being: maltodextrin, fructose and palatinose, with an exclusive ratio of 2:1:1, providing different absorption speeds. To complement the blend, our products have the addition of different amounts of caffeine, sodium, taurine and BCAA.


A carbohydrate sourced from honey, sugar cane and beetroot, Palatinose has a low glycemic index, which causes a continuous and prolonged release of energy, benefiting athletes in longer activities. By having this characteristic, there is an improvement in performance resulting from the saving of glycogen in the body and an increase in the use of fat as an energy source.


Complex and simple carbohydrates, with different absorption speeds and which use different transporters for their oxidation. The combination of Maltodextrin and Fructose in a 2:1 ratio increases the body's ability to oxidize carbohydrates. This is due to the fact that these carbohydrates use different transporters to enter cells. This allows for a greater supply of carbohydrates and avoids overloading a single carrier, which consequently reduces the incidence of gastrointestinal discomfort.
