It contains 4 Parts carbohydrate to 1 Part whey protein, hence the name. Research shows that this critical ratio, when used during exercise, provides athletes with more energy than carbohydrate alone. Based on the Award Winning complex carbohydrate found in standard EnergySource, 4:1 is easy on the stomach, hypotonic and refreshing.
Performance proven in the toughest races, 4:1 also contains a unique H E A C (high electrolyte anti cramp) formulation. This is designed to maximize fluid absorption in and minimize cramp. High5 are so confident about this new product, that it comes with 100% money back guarantee. Available in Fresh Citrus and Summer Fruit flavours.
Most endurance athletes should be aware the primary cause of fatigue is the depletion of muscle and liver glycogen (carbohydrate) and that ingesting carbohydrates during exercise will delay the onset of this fatigue. However many athletes remain unaware that EnergySource 4:1 containing 4 parts Carbohydrate and 1 part Protein can extend the time to fatigue up to an incredible 29% when compared to a carbohydrate only drink and 57% when compared with water.
Here's why. Consuming carbohydrates during exercise delays the onset of fatigue by fuelling your muscles via blood glucose and therefore sparing muscle and liver glycogen (carbohydrate stored in your muscles and liver). The amount of carbohydrate (energy) that is delivered to the working muscles is determined by the amount of insulin released by the Pancreas in response to the rise in your blood sugar caused by the ingested carbs.
Ingested Protein also causes insulin to be released, and, with the right carbs and protein, in the right ratio (4 Carbs to 1 Protein) the gastric emptying speed is not slowed and there is a larger insulin response resulting in more carbohydrate (energy) being 'driven' into the working muscles during exercise.
The more carbs i.e. energy, going into the working muscles the more endurance you will have.
This item may come in a box of 12 x 50g satchets or in a tub.

Magazine reviews for High5 EnergySource 4:1 With Super Carbs 600g Box
Review from Cycling Plus
This drink is four parts carbohydrates to one part whey protein. High Five claims that this is combination gives up to 29% increase of carb take up over a straight carb drink because the protein causes insulin to be released, resulting in more carbohydrate beingsent to the muscles when you're riding. The added protein in the drink also stops protein being used to fuel muscles while riding during longer events, when your energy levels start to run low.
A great tasting long distance energy fuel

A sachet contains 47g of product, of which 36g is carbs. If this is made up to 500ml, this gives a concentration of 0.072g/ml. Therefore 100ml would contain 7.2g of carb.
Reading off the back of a sachet:
Per 100g of powder (remember a sachet is 47g).
Carbohydrate, 77g (of which sugars 36g)
Fat, 0g (of which saturates, 0g)
Dietry Fibre, 0g
Hope this helps.
"sugar (g) 36 in 100g (kJ/cal)"

How can I guarantee that this happens?
I've been using one bottle of 4:1 and a bottle of water. Used the 4:1 first so it gets in your system.
You could probably do without the water but I prefer to drink water as well.
