SIS: The importance of caffeine

WHAT IS CAFFEINE?
Caffeine is one of the most heavily researched and beneficial ergogenic aids available. The understanding of the performance effect of caffeine has increased and this has widened its use. Most people know that “caffeine may improve performance” but what does it actually do and how can we make the most of caffeine?

WHY SHOULD YOU USE CAFFEINE?
Caffeine acts centrally on the brain to lower the perception of effort, which is particularly noticeable in longer events. In distance events over 90 minutes or high intensity events under 90 minutes, mental tiredness as well as physical fatigue plays a large role in determining performance as the event progresses. Caffeine can help to maintain physical performance in this situation.

SIS GO CAFFEINE SHOT
Designed to provide a mental and physical boost, Science in Sport (SiS) GO Caffeine Shot is a new caffeinated shot with added Vitamin B to support a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.

Developed with professional athletes and teams, SiS GO Caffeine Shot also helps to maintain focus and concentration. Ideal for use before training or ahead of short duration events, it can also be used during exercise.

WHEN SHOULD YOU USE CAFFEINE?
Consume one shot 30 minutes before short duration events of high intensity to ensure caffeine levels are elevated from the outset.

In longer duration events, such as a marathon or triathlon, take on a shot in the last two hours of exercise to combat fatigue.

SiS’ GO Caffeine Shot is for use by runners and triathletes and those who take part in team sports, either recreationally or professionally.
