We’ve spent a lot of time formulating our mix for Veloflow, to incorporate carbs, electrolytes and caffeine to power you up while you ride. If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, then you’ll have heard that a thousand times before. Caffeine has been an important element in the formulation, and we have gone to great lengths to ensure that our drink is light on the stomach and doesn’t weigh you down from within. For many people, however, caffeine just doesn’t sit right. It can cause sensitivity in the stomach and bowels, which is the last thing you want when you’re out on the road. But what to do about it?
When it comes to caffeine, nearly everyone feels that boost, but it can lead to a crash after that initial burst of energy has worn off. Our caffeinated mix is formulated to avoid this, but the effects can still be felt by those with a sensitive stomach. Caffeine sensitivity was be affected by absolutely everything, from what you had for breakfast to how much sleep you’re getting to your genetics. We want everyone to be able to enjoy Veloflow and that means catering to the needs of all sorts of different people.
That’s why we’ve created Veloflow: Caffeine-free! The first real departure from our normal product line, we’ve made this caffeine-free version so that, even if caffeine doesn’t sit right with your stomach, you can still get the benefits that Veloflow offers, without any of those unwanted side-effects that some people experience with a caffeinated energy drink. Same carbs, same electrolytes, same taste, no caffeine!
To get a little scientific with things, caffeine enters your body and is circulated round your body through the bloodstream. As it makes its way round the body, it joins up with a number of “receptors”, the majority of which are in your brain. Each person’s receptors are different due to genetics, and caffeine might not bind well with them, leaving you feeling sluggish or heavy when you should be flying! If that’s the case with your body, then give Veloflow Caffeine-free a try today and see how far it can take you!
