Transform your isotonic drink into a hypertonic drink!

You’re converting your isotonic drink into a hypertonic one because you want to absorb a lot more carbohydrates (=energy). This is perfect for the final stretch or at the start of a big challenge.

  • 34 carbs per Pro Carb Max stick 34%
    34 carbs per Pro Carb Max stick 34%
  • Add a maximum of 2 Pro Carb Max sticks to your Pro Isotonic. 2%
    Add a maximum of 2 Pro Carb Max sticks to your Pro Isotonic. 2%
  • This way, you'll get 100 carbohydrates in 1 bottle! 100%
    This way, you'll get 100 carbohydrates in 1 bottle! 100%

How do you use this?

Use 1 Carb Max stick (34g carbohydrates) or 2 Carb Max sticks (68g carbohydrates) to add to your Neapharma Pro Isotonic (already contains 32g carbohydrates). This way, you’ll get 66g carbohydrates (1 Stick) or 100g carbs (2 Sticks).

Isotone VS hypertone

At Neapharma, we strongly believe in an isotonic formula because it’s an ideal combination of energy (carbohydrates) and hydration. This is important because maintaining a good fluid balance is essential for converting energy into power.

However, there are times when it’s smart to transform your Pro Isotonic into a carbohydrate bomb: during a long climb, at the finale of a competition, or during an extended period when you prefer to drink carbohydrates rather than eat.

An isotonic formula is the perfect combination to boost both your fluid balance (water, salts, and minerals) and energy levels. Both are essential for sustaining endurance with minimal decline.

A hypertonic formula primarily provides carbohydrates (=energy) and will offer less support for your fluid balance. Therefore, add your Carb Max stick to your bottle at the right moment (during a finale, long climb, etc.), and use Pro Isotonic in other bottles to maintain your fluid balance.

Combine a bottle of Pro Isotonic with a bottle of Pro Isotonic supplemented with Carb Max at the right moment!

Kristof: This tasteless formula literally fits into any beverage. Of course, in terms of composition, it’s optimized to work best with Pro Isotonic. Much is said about Maurten or others that play with carbohydrates. But this is the game changer of the moment:

  • You get 6 different carbohydrates so that everything is absorbed quickly and completely.
  • You can go up to 100 carbohydrates per bottle!
  • Completely stomach-friendly!
  • It can be combined with the Hydro sticks, allowing you to personalize your isotonic!.

Transforming your isotonic into a carbohydrate bomb of 70 or 100 carbohydrates per bottle. In a composition that is quickly absorbed, long-lasting, and gentle on your stomach? Yes, here we’ve already made the difference at the Pro Tour level in the cycling world! Without a doubt!

– Kristof De Kegel

We combine 6 different carbohydrates for a noticeable effect. It’s a new method to quickly, completely, and without energy dips, have access to your maximum power and endurance during sports.

The 6 carbohydrate strategy is the latest insight from top coach and Performance Manager at cycling team Alpecin Deceuninck, Kristof De Kegel. He researched which carbohydrates are best used by athletes and what the ratio of these different energy sources is in terms of endurance and power.

He found that by combining the right sources of carbohydrates at the right time, you can process up to 35% more energy. Essential to this is alternating between 6 different carbohydrates in the correct ratio. All Neapharma products have been adjusted since 2023 so that we are the only brand in the world where this strategy works.

To save you from constantly making these calculations, we at Neapharma have created the Fuel Plan App where your personalized nutrition plan is generated.

“Een koolhydratenbom, zonder enige belasting aan mijn maag”

“In het laatste uur schakel in over naar hypertone met 2 zakjes Carb Max... Het is net alsof ik een nieuw paar benen uit de kast haal net voor de finale begint. Ondanks een vrij gevoelige maag merk ik eigenlijk niets van de grote hoeveelheid koolhydraten die ik dan op korte tijd drink.”

Veelgestelde vragen

Do extra scoops of powder in the water bottle help?
No. The products are formulated with the best ingredients in the correct proportions to ensure optimal absorption. Additional scoops will not have a greater effect. They may, however, intensify the flavor.
How can I build endurance after a workout?
Of course, various factors play a role in this. Duration, intensity, sequence, ... but nutrition and recovery also play a crucial role:
  • Building endurance starts during the training; drink enough: a dehydrated body can convert up to 25% less endurance building from a workout.
  • Afterward: Everything is proportional: short workouts versus long workouts. For short workouts, effective endurance building is possible. Then we use Pro Leucine: focus on muscle recovery and building. For long workouts, we aim for complete recovery with Pro Elite Recovery. You can find more information and details on the detail page.
How to get a personalised Fuel plan
At Neapharma, we combine our superior sports nutrition with our own free Fuel Plan App. Utilize the same tools as the professionals, thanks to coach & Performance Manager Kristof De Kegel. The app generates a personalized nutrition plan in seconds. The nutrition plan tells you hour by hour and kilometer by kilometer what you should eat and drink, entirely tailored to yourself and your goals. Thus, your nutrition plan will look entirely different when you go for a training ride or attempt to break a personal best. This app is also suitable for competitive cyclists.
How can I personalize my isotonic sports drink?
At Neapharma, we combine our Superior sports nutrition with our own Fuel Plan App. But that's not a must! You can use each Neapharma product on its own: an energy gel, recovery shake, or isotonic drink. Or you can personalize your sports nutrition with Kristof De Kegel's Fuel Plan App. Based on your energy expenditure, temperature, sweat profile, and 28 other parameters, you can personalize your isotonic drink and carbohydrate intake, and our free Fuel Plan App will assist you. - Pro Carb Max sticks: You turn your isotonic drink into a hypertonic drink because you want to absorb much more carbohydrates (=energy). This is perfect in the final stages or at the start of a significant challenge. Add 1 to 2 sticks to your isotonic sports drink. - Hydro & O.R.S. sticks: Add 1 to 2 sticks to your isotonic drink to maximize support for your fluid balance. You can combine both the Carb Max sticks and the Hydro sticks in one water bottle with your isotonic sports drink.
Can I combine Pro Carb Max, Hydro, and O.R.S. sticks in the Pro Isotonic?
Yes! That's the idea! This way, you personalize your isotonic drink.

What is your connection with Wout van Aert?
We collaborated extensively with Wout when he rode for various Belgian teams. Together with his former Sniper Team, we refined the composition of our bars and gels. Wout was particularly involved in formulating the Pro-Elite Recovery Shake. His contribution ensured that you won't retain moisture despite all the proteins, minerals, and vitamins – a crucial feature in a recovery shake for sports performance. Thanks to the shake, all harmful substances, such as lactic acid, are eliminated.
"What is the 6-carbohydrate strategy?
The 6-carbohydrate strategy is the latest insight from top coach and Performance Manager at the cycling team Alpecin Deceuninck, Kristof De Kegel. He researched which carbohydrates are best used by athletes and what the ratio of these different energy sources is in relation to endurance and strength. He developed a strategy that, when you combine the right sources of carbohydrates at the right time, you can process up to 35% more energy. The key here is alternating between 6 different carbohydrates in the right proportion. Therefore, all Neapharma products have been adjusted since 2023, making us the only brand in the world where this strategy works. To simplify these calculations, Neapharma has created the Fuel Plan App, where your personalized nutrition plan is generated.
What is a neutral pH?
All Neapharma products are pH-neutral. Without flavorings and acids that affect the pH, everything is absorbed more quickly and effectively, resulting in maximum outcomes without burdening the stomach and intestines. Additionally, pH-neutral products are gentler on your tooth enamel. Do you have a strong stomach and this is not important to you? A neutral pH also guarantees faster and complete absorption of nutrients. So, a neutral pH is not only good for your stomach, intestines, and teeth. It also enhances performance!
What is the importance of moisture in energy gels?
Hydration Balance Energy gels are potent energy boosters, but don't expect to extract 300 ml of fluid from a 60 ml gel. It is important to have realistic expectations, as each gel has limited capacity to maintain your hydration balance. Digestibility A good energy gel also includes moisture to facilitate the smooth absorption of carbohydrates. The moisture acts as a conductor for the carbohydrates in your intestines, promoting better digestibility. It is always beneficial to have fluid in your gels to enhance proper digestion. Speed of Absorption An additional benefit of moisture in energy gels is the faster and more complete absorption of carbohydrates. Thick, sticky gels can cause up to a 50% loss in absorption. Therefore, moisture in gels is advantageous to increase the efficiency of carbohydrate absorption. Isotonic Gels Isotonic gels are an outdated science where you receive fewer carbohydrates and overly focus on fluid intake. A good energy gel contains sufficient moisture (without being isotonic) for the above reason and, in reality, has nearly the same fluid absorption as an isotonic gel but with a lot more energy.      
What is the difference between Hydro and O.R.S. sticks?
Little. 1 Hydro stick adds extra salts and minerals to your isotonic drink. 2 Hydro sticks, of course, do the same, but then the ratio of your substances is so optimal that you are talking about an O.R.S. ratio. Often, it is not necessary to add 2 sticks, and 1 (Hydro, in this case) is already sufficient.

Hydro

During prolonged exertion, you sweat out fluids and electrolytes. As a result, your fluid and salt balance will no longer be in balance, leading to a loss of performance. The Pro Elite Hydro sticks contain a low-calorie blend of essential salts, minerals, and electrolytes to maintain your fluid and salt balance.

ORS

With a double dosage (2 sticks in 500ml water/Pro Isotonic), an 'Oral Rehydration Solution (=ORS)' is created. This concentration contains 7.5g of glucose (maltodextrin) and 900mg of sodium. The combination of sodium and glucose in a hypotonic solution maximizes fluid absorption in the small intestine. The ideal solution for athletes who sweat a lot.
What is the difference between an energy gel and an isotonic gel?
Isotonic gels are outdated in science, providing fewer carbohydrates while overly focusing on fluid intake. A good energy gel contains sufficient moisture (without being isotonic) for the above reason and, in reality, has nearly the same fluid absorption as an isotonic gel but with a lot more energy.

What is isomaltulose?
Isomaltulose is one of the most powerful and complex carbohydrates in sports science. It has a slower metabolism than sucrose, resulting in a more gradual increase in blood glucose levels. It is often used as a carbohydrate source with a low glycemic index. This means that it can provide both quick and sustained energy. It prevents energy dips because of its prolonged effect. Therefore, it is also an ideal substance for carbohydrate loading. This way, with a combination of various carbohydrates and isomaltulose, you can go up to 120g of carbohydrates per hour!
