Hammer Nutrition Perpetuem:
Perpetuem satisfies your body’s energy requirements when exercise extends beyond three hours. Its unique blend and precise ratios of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fat, and key support nutrients allow you to stay strong and steady from start to finish.
Thoroughly tested and proven in the world’s toughest events since 2002, Perpetuem has been massively improved by replacing the corn maltodextrin with tapioca maltodextrin. The names may be similar, but these two carbohydrates are worlds apart! With far less processing, no GMO content, lower amounts of sodium and higher amounts of naturally occurring potassium, a more-alkaline pH, and lower mono and disaccharide content/much higher percentage of polysaccharide content (courtesy of its lower Dextrose Equivalent), tapioca is the sugar and corn alternative we’ve been wanting to bring to you for years is finally here!
Whether you’ve been using Perpetuem for 20 years or are thinking of trying it for the first time, you are going to be impressed with this 2.0 version, guaranteed!
TAPIOCA Maltodextrin – Non-GMO and unsprayed, tapioca is the king of complex carbs! Far less processed, guaranteed no GMO content, lower mono and disaccharide content/much higher percentage of polysaccharide content (courtesy of its lower Dextrose Equivalent), less sodium content, and even closer to the desired neutral pH, tapioca is the sugar and corn alternative we’ve been wanting to bring to you for years is finally here!
Isolated Soy Protein – A dry powder food ingredient that has been separated or isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90 to 95 percent protein, and nearly carbohydrate- and fat-free.
Soy Lecithin – The extract from soybean oil, lecithin is an easily digestible source of healthful fat. This helps create a feeling of satiety and also supports the body’s natural fat-burning capabilities.
Sodium (Tribasic) Phosphate – This compound enhances the functioning of all three of the body’s ATP-producing energy systems—the short-term ATP-CP system, the medium-term lactic acid system, and the long-term oxygen/aerobic system.
A primary benefit of sodium (tribasic) phosphate is its ability to buffer blood acidity and help maintain a more ideal acid-alkaline balance by neutralizing excess hydrogen ions within the muscle cell. Effectively buffering lactic acid extends energy production within this system. This nutrient also increases 2,3 diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG). This compound, found in red blood cells helps release oxygen from hemoglobin into the muscle cells. An increase in 2,3-DPG will improve the availability of oxygen to working muscles during exercise.
L-Carnosine – This dipeptide (a combination of two amino acids) L-carnosine is a potent lactic acid buffer. It also offers antioxidant support.
L-Carnitine Tartrate – L-Carnitine Tartrate is a compound containing L-carnitine chelated (“bonded”) to L-tartrate, which is a salt of tartaric acid. L-carnitine is the key nutrient involved in the shuttling of fatty acids into the cell for energy production. Tartrate is a potent antioxidant.
Choline Bitartrate - A type of B-complex vitamin that helps with efficient use of body fat stores as energy. Choline bitartrate also supports enhanced cognition, learning, and memory.
Stevia – A natural, calorie-free sweeter derived from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to Central and South America. It does not affect blood sugar levels or contribute to tooth decay like sugar does.
Chromium Polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in energy production.
Energy Smart® (Grape Juice, Rice Dextrin) – This all-natural, low-sugar sweetener plays an important role in Hammer Gel’s delicious flavor while contributing minimally to the overall carbohydrate content. Energy Smart® is certified non-GMO, gluten-free, and allergen-free.
