Perpetuem (AES vol 8.13)

The time proven, "real deal" endurance fuel!


If you've never tried Perpetuem, and especially if you're currently using other so-called "endurance fuels" - most of which are loaded with refined sugars, citric acid, and excess sodium - it's time to give this "real deal" fuel a thorough test. You can absolutely rely on Perpetuem to fuel your body thoroughly and get you where you want to go, no matter how far or difficult that distance may be, guaranteed!

Perpetuem has been put to the test in the most grueling events imaginable, starting with the Double Furnace Creek 508 record in October 2002 - a back-to-back crossing of the brutal FC508 route (a total of 1,016 miles and approximately 70,000 feet of climbing). Perpetuem continues to pass every conceivable test that endurance athletes can throw at it!

In addition to a powdered form, we offer Perpetuem Solids, the same exact Perpetuem formula in easy-to-chew tablets. Perpetuem Solids is a hit with endurance athletes because it satisfies the need to chew on solid food without having to resort to eating candy - sugarladen gelatinous energy chews, blocks, beans, and other similar products that are being misleadingly promoted to athletes as endurance fuels. Because it's Perpetuem, you can rest assured that Perpetuem Solids is a quality, no-junk fuel that actually works!

Perpetuem's ultra-effective formula

Complex carbohydrates - Consistent, sustained energy DOES NOT come from simple sugars, so if the fuel you're using contains any "ose" sugars (glucose, sucrose, fructose, etc.), it's time to make a change right away. Perpetuem's complex carbohydrates (maltodextrin) allow your body to absorb a greater volume of calories than simple sugarbased fuels do. The goal in fueling is to provide your body with calories that are readily available for conversion to energy, without delay from the GI tract to the blood stream (i.e., no stomach distress). Plus, complex carbohydrates supply long-lasting energy, as opposed to simple sugars, which result in undesirable "peak and valley" energy levels. When it comes to high-quality, sustained energy, Perpetuem is the undisputed champion every time!

Soy protein - When exercise goes into the second hour and beyond, it's important to consume some protein along with complex carbohydrates. At this time, about 10% of your caloric utilization comes from protein, and if the fuel you are consuming doesn't supply it, your body will have to rely on "burning" your muscle tissue to satisfy its protein requirements. When your muscle tissue is cannibalized for energy, it leads to premature muscle fatigue and post-exercise sorenessdue to excess ammonia production and buildup from the protein breakdown process.

Lyso-lecithin fatty acids - The longer you exercise, the more your body relies on stored fatty acids to satisfy its fueling requirements. The small percentage of healthy, soy-derived fat in Perpetuem helps to cue your body to more liberally release its fatty acid stores, allowing them to be more readily available as a source of energy. A little fat in fuel also slightly slows the rate of digestion and thus promotes "caloric satisfaction," another attractive plus, especially during primarily aerobic ultra-distance events.

Sodium tribasic phosphate - Sodium phosphate neutralizes the effects of excess lactic acid and helps to increase endurance by balancing acid/alkaline levels in the blood. Increased amounts and availability of sodium phosphate in the body help to increase and maximize the concentrations of 2,3-DPG, which improves the availability of oxygen to working muscles for ATP production, thus aiding in increased endurance.

Potent support nutrients

Perpetuem's complex carbohydrates, soy protein, healthy fats, and sodium phosphate place it light years ahead of the glut of "endurance fuels" currently littering the market. Perpetuem doesn't stop there, however; the formula also contains the following endurance-benefitting nutrients:

  • L-carnosine - Not only is this compound a perfect acid-buffering complement to sodium phosphate, it's also a potent antioxidant.
  • L-carnitine - For your body to use fats as a fuel source with any efficiency, it needs l-carnitine. This nutrient, rapidly depleted during even moderately intense exercise, is the "ferry" that transports fatty acids into the mitochondria (energy-producing "furnaces") of muscle cells so that these fats can be used to produce energy.
  • Chromium polynicotinate - Efficient carbohydrate metabolism and stable blood sugar levels are a must during exercise, and no other nutrient supports these beneficial functions better than this trace mineral.
  • Choline bitartrate - Depleted during prolonged and/or strenuous exercise, this nutrient is a necessity for the metabolism of fats.


For over a decade, Perpetuem has been successfully used by thousands of athletes in the world's toughest endurance contests. Using Perpetuem and Perpetuem Solids during your longer-duration workouts and races allows you to stay focused on the job at hand. With this high-quality fuel, there are no worries about coming up short on energy or getting sick from sugar-laden garbage calories.
