BigFeat Events, recognized for orchestrating captivating endurance events, stands out for its dynamic blend of cycling and running sportives. The recent "Beast to the East" cycling sportive, held on May 21st, is a sterling example of their commitment to crafting exhilarating experiences. A cornerstone of the success and popularity of these events has been the provision of Sustain Go! energy gels, generously sponsored by Elivar.
Previous running and events such as the "Bigwayround Trail Run" and "BigSea Trail Run" also benefited from the free distribution of Sustain Go! energy gels, much to the participants' delight. The energy boost and quicker recovery offered by these gels have consistently been instrumental in empowering athletes to perform their best.
Did you know that Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN), the star ingredient in numerous anti-aging supplements, also moonlights in several foods you might already enjoy? It's true! NMN is a vital precursor to NAD+, a molecule crucial to many biological processes, like cell growth, DNA repair, and metabolism. But as we age, NAD+ levels take a hit, and bolstering them through NMN intake can be beneficial. Now the question arises, can we simply count on our daily meals for our NMN fix?
Imagine fueling your workouts with an energy gel that doesn't cause stomach upset, insulin spikes, or energy crashes. Sounds too good to be true? We've spent years researching and perfecting a sustained-release energy gel that addresses the common issues of conventional gels.
So, why is SUSTAIN GO! different, and why should you choose it over other alternatives?
Let's dive in.
Here at Elivar, we are proud to partner with BigFeat Events, the UK's trail running and multisport event specialist. BigFeat offers a range of races that cater to all abilities and experiences, from half marathons to ultramarathons, sportive to swims.
At Elivar, we share BigFeat's passion for sports and adventure. That's why we are excited to announce that our product, Sustain Go! sustained release energy gels, will be available for free at the finish line for all participants. Our energy gels will provide athletes with the fuel they need to push themselves to their limits and succeed in their chosen event.
NMN supplements are believed to be a promising solution to increase NAD+ levels and improve cellular function. Studies have shown that NMN supplementation can improve cardiovascular function, enhance muscle function, and reduce insulin resistance. Additionally, NMN may help protect against DNA damage and inflammation, both of which are key factors in aging.
As we transition out of winter and into spring, our immune system can be vulnerable to attack. The changing temperatures, pollen, and other environmental factors can weaken our natural defences and make us more susceptible to illness.
That's why it's crucial to take steps to support your immune system during this time of year. And one of the best ways to do that is by incorporating CurraNZ Immune Support into your daily routine.
Elivar is delighted to be working with the UK Running Events Team to bring sustained release energy gels to the Trail Running community.
First Up for 2023 was the Winchester Off-Road Half Marathon.
UK Running Events host the South's most scenic Trails Runs. With distances from 5Km to Half Marathon there is something for Trail Runners of all experience levels.
While gels can be a convenient and effective source of energy for trail runners, some runners may experience stomach discomfort or upset when consuming traditional fast-acting gels.
Elivar's Sustain Go! formulations are generally well tolerated in the stomach as the sustained-release formula is easier on the stomach, without the discomfort brought on by traditional fast-release, high-GI gels.

We never liked gels here at Elivar HQ
They were the epitome of unhealthy - a turbo charged sugar bomb designed to deliver as much sugar as possible into our blood stream. The result for many a marathon runner, cyclist or triathlete was stomach upset and cramps, bloating and the long term damage of repeat insulin spikes during exercise.
It's a fact - it takes longer to recover as we age.
That doesn't mean we need to do less. It means we should pay more attention to the kinds of nutrients we're providing our body. If you're finding that it is getting a little harder to recover from your favorite session, it may be your recovery drink that needs to change - not the session!
