HEED - Usage Instructions

 


Application
HEED may be used as the sole fuel during exercise lasting up to two hours, fulfilling all of your calorie and fluid requirements and most-to-all of your electrolyte needs.

Serving Size
One scoop of HEED contains 100 calories.

Suggested Doses by Body Weight*:
WEIGHT SCOOPS CALORIES
Up to 90 lbs
(Up to 41 kg)
0.5-1 serving/hr 50-100 calories
90-120 lbs
(41-54.5 kg)

*These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum.

If using more than one fuel, be sure to combine all of the calories from all of the products consumed to reach a correct total hourly intake.


Mixing / Usage Instructions

Mix 1-2.75 scoops (see chart above) of HEED in 16-28 ounces (approx 475-830 ml) of water. Sip continuously during exercise.

Notes

When training sessions or races go much longer than two hours, select either Perpetuem or Sustained Energy as your primary fuel source. In these instances, HEED can still be used intermittently for variety as long as your total hourly caloric intake does not exceed your trainingdetermined maximum.

Each scoop of HEED contains the equivalent amount of electrolytes as one Endurolytes capsule, one scoop of Endurolytes Powder, or one-half tablet of Endurolytes Fizz. For many athletes, under normal conditions, one or two scoops of HEED will completely fulfill electrolyte requirements. When heat stress increases significantly, you will need to consume additional Endurolytes.

Please Note: It is believed that xylitol is unsafe for consumption by dogs; therefore, we do not recommend you feed your dog any products that contain xylitol, nor any products that are made for human consumption. More information.
