After gaining an understanding of all that the body goes through during endurance sports, Malik arrived at a unique combination of carbohydrates, proteins, and oils that could fuel the effort toward improved performance.
Malik’s research focuses on essential amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which tend to deplete rapidly, but are key to proper body functions and reducing fatigue during efforts of endurance. Another amino acid, taurine, maintains the contraction of the cardiac muscles and is the key to the optimum performance of skeletal muscles. The body takes a long time to produce these amino acids on its own, which makes it imperative to replenish them through an external source.It is also necessary to maintain optimal blood-glucose levels, for which Malik worked with maltodextrin that can be broken down and rapidly absorbed by the bloodstream. A combination of dextrose and high dextrose equivalent maltodextrin provides for instant energy, while the medium chain triglycerides oil not only makes the product smooth for consumption, but also provides energy due to its quick metabolism property. In addition, the right proportion of caffeine was added to boost energy levels, as has been realised over the years.
And finally, Malik added a secret ingredient to this formula that worked like magic when it came to addressing the upset stomach, irregular bowel movements and nausea that most endurance athletes suffer while at play.
