Low Carb Burner
Low Carb Burner is a low-calorie electrolyte drink based on green tea and coffee extract, L-carnitine, 4 minerals and 10 vitamins. The standardised green tea and the caffeine-free green coffee-extract provide natural polyphenols, like for instance the catechin EGCG. Besides that, PeptoPro®, which is a quickly available casein hydrolysate, is added. Low Carb Burner is suitable as low-calorie sports drink wherever no additional energy is requested.
Interview Giulia Steingruber
Gymnast Giulia Steingruber about her ambitions at the World Championships 2019
For quite a long time you did not hear anything from gymnast Giulia Steingruber. After her great bronze medals in the jump - at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 as well as at the World Championships in Montréal in 2017 - a serious injury forced the Swiss talent to take a longer break. The rehab lasted almost a year. Tough times for such a successful athlete like Giulia Steingruber, who had previously been European Champion in the jump discipline, on the floor and in the all-around competitions.
World Championships coming next
But now she's back. And more than just back! At the Swiss Championships 2019 Giulia Steingruber won her eighth all-around title. The form is back and the hunger for further successes is likely to be greater than ever. A few days before the upcoming World Championships in Stuttgart, Giulia Steingruber took the time to answer a few questions for her long-time nutrition partner SPONSER SPORT FOOD.
Giulia, are you doing a kind of «competition diet» in the days before an important competition?
No, I don't stick to a special diet, I mainly leave away the carbohydrates.
What does your breakfast look like in the morning of an important competition?
What I do not want to miss is fresh coffee. In addition to that, there are muesli with fruits, natural yoghurt and a little honey.
Do you have a favourite SPONSER product that should not be missing in any competition preparation?
I mainly use the LOW CARB drink as well as the low-calorie ELECTROLYTES tabs. After the competition I have a RECOVERY SHAKE.
What are your plans for the 2019 World Cup in Stuttgart?
My goal for the World Championships is to do a clean qualification. I would like to be among the top 24 in the singles and in the top 12 with the Swiss team.
How do you celebrate your success?
After the competition I really enjoy a fine dinner! I love to celebrate my success with my family and good friends sitting together comfortably.01. 10. 2019

How ultra endurance athletes should optimise their fat metabolism
Because the energy requirement at ultra endurance events amounts to 7000 kcal per day and more, studies advise ultra endurance athletes to optimise their fat metabolism within their training protocol. (Nikolaidis et al., 2018: Nutrition in Ultra-Endurance: State of the Art. Nutrients 10(12):1995).
SPONSER recommends to activate the fat metabolism with regular low-glycogen trainings and to support those with LOW CARB BURNER, ACTIVATOR or ELECTROLYTES TABS. During ultra-endurance competitions paying attention to energy density, including fat- and protein-containing food, is important. Ideal for this: LIQUID ENERGY ULTRA Gel and ULTRA PRO as well as the sports drink ULTRA COMPETITION and - in high heat - SALT CAPS.
