Description

OUR TAKE
Perpetuem is one of the most widely used and tested high quality endurance sports drink available today. If you're looking for a sports drink that can fuel you for the long run (in excess of 2hrs), then Perpetuem will be one of your excellent options. It's loaded with complex carbs (no simple carbs), protein (soy protein isolate), fats, and electrolytes for a complete fuel. When we use it, we feel more satiated (keeps the dreaded bonk at bay) then with more simple fuels. We've used it extensively with excellent results. The only caveat is that, since it uses no preservatives, you have to be careful if it spends too long in the heat after being mixed with water. Don't leave it in your car mixed with H20 under the sun!

IN HAMMER'S OWN WORDS
Welcome to the world's finest endurance fuel specifically formulated for multi-hour to multi-day events. No matter how long or extreme your exercise regimen or races may be, Perpetuem is always up to the task. Thoroughly tested and proven in the world's toughest endurance events, Perpetuem's unique formula—complex carbohydrates, GMO-free soy protein, healthy fats, and key auxiliary nutrients such as sodium phosphate—is unsurpassed for maintaining optimal athletic performance for as long as you want. Perpetuem provides consistent, reliable energy, maximizes stored fat utilization, and buffers lactic acid to prevent muscle fatigue. On the road or trail, Perpetuem is the breakfast, lunch, and dinner of champions!

Perpetuem represents the ultimate, never-before-available link to satisfying the body's fueling requirements no matter how long or difficult your exercise session or race.

  • Carbohydrates - As with all Hammer Nutrition fuels, we never add simple sugars to the carbohydrate profile. Perpetuem contains a specific maltodextrin, which provides nearly 87% of its caloric composition in long chain carbohydrates.
  • Protein - A calcium-enhanced soy protein isolate known as "XT" makes up nearly 10% of the caloric profile of Perpetuem, the same percentage that is cannibalized from muscle tissue during long, slow endurance workouts. This particular soy protein contains a very high amount of intact, cardiovascular-enhancing isoflavones.
  • Fat - A de-oiled "super lecithin" (extracted from the soybean) is ideal for consistently and reliably fueling the body and maximizing energy production from stored fatty acids.
  • Sweetener - Perpetuem contains Energy Smart, the same healthy sweetener in Hammer Gel.

Added Benefits

  • Consistent, stable energy
  • Easy to digest
  • Minimize lean muscle tissue cannibalization
  • Caffé Latte contains caffeine
  • Gluten-free and vegan friendly
  • Contains GMO-free soy protein
  • Contains no MSG

Mixing / Usage Instructions
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to potential spoilage issues, Perpetuem cannot be premixed and left for several hours in warm weather. You can mix and consume Perpetuem three different ways depending on individual preference and logistical concerns. Please experiment with the following options to determine which works best for you.

The One-Hour Bottle - Mix the suggested amount of Perpetuem for your body weight (see chart above) in 16-28 ounces (approx 475-830 ml) of water. Consume one bottle hourly. This method is ideal when training or racing with a support crew and vehicle. If youre without a support crew, but still want to use this option for mixing, keep in mind that its obviously less convenient as youll have to stop more frequently to mix your fuel. Also, because you are trying to fulfill both hydration and caloric requirements from one source, you have limited ability to adjust one without affecting the other; you may need to consume additional water to satisfy hydration requirements.

The Multi-Hour Bottle - This is by far the most convenient method of fueling because it allows you to be self-sufficient for many hours, requiring only additional plain water along the way. The only limitation is how many scoops you can fit into a bottle. Determine your proper hourly intake of scoops by experimenting with the numbers from the dosage chart. Lets say you've determined through testing that two scoops of Perpetuem per hour is your ideal caloric intake.  For a 4-hour workout, you'll need eight scoops in a bottle, filled with water and shaken. You may need to add a few scoops at a time to get it all to mix well. You then nurse this bottle, taking small sips every 15 to 20 minutes.  At this concentration, the water in the mixed bottle does not contribute much at all to your hourly fluid intake needs. To meet your fluid requirements, carry a second and possibly even a third bottle of plain water, use a hydration system, or know where you can refill along your route. Drink according to the temperature/humidity and your exertion level so that you consume in the range of 16-28 ounces (approx 475-830 ml) of plain water per hour. This way, as long as you can obtain water along the way, you're set for hours of hard training.

Gel or Paste - If you want to carry the highest volume of calories in the least amount of space, making a thick mix is your best option. Perpetuem can be made into a super-concentrated, near paste-like consistency and dispensed from a gel flask. Using a blender or bowl and spoon, mix scoops of powder with a small amount of water, gradually adding water as necessary to create the desired consistency. If you're using one of the flavored Perpetuems, remember that the heavier and more concentrated you mix it, the sweeter and stronger the flavor will become. You can also add Hammer Gel or HEED for flavor, if desired. Depending on how many scoops per hour you require, and how concentrated the mix is, each flask of Perpetuem can supply you with 2-4 hours of fuel. As with the multi-hour bottle, you must carry additional bottles of plain water or use a hydration system to meet your fluid requirements.

Important information
By design, Perpetuem does not contain artificial preservatives. Preservatives provide absolutely no benefits for athletic performance or general health—we consider them health hazards, in fact, which is why we do not include them in either of these products, or any of the Hammer Nutrition fuels. As a result of this, however, once mixed into solution, the protein component in both Perpetuem and Sustained Energy is affected in the following ways:

  • At some point in time it will eventually sour and no longer be acceptable for consumption.
  • It tends to separate after several hours and may settle on the bottom of a bottle or hydration pack bladder.

We believe that not having artificial preservatives in our products is far more important than these two inconveniences; however, they are factors that you need to consider when using Perpetuem or Sustained Energy.

Q&A

Q: How soon after I make Perpetuem do I have to drink it?
A: Ideally, it should be within 3-5 hours, with up to perhaps 6-8 hours (depending on the temperature) being the longest we recommend. Dr. Bill Misner explains:

Energy drink powders containing no preservatives are predisposed to change once set in solution mixtures. Time, temperature, humidity, environmental airborne or endogenous microbes, oxidation factors may cause fatty acids to turn rancid or proteins to sour in the presence of long chain or short chain carbohydrates. A prime example is found in pasteurized milk. Milk typically sours in stages as one type of bacteria is replaced by another. Bacilli convert protein into ammonia products, and the pH rises. The odor or taste of spoiled milk is apparent once this has happened. We have observed this phenomenon in our soy-based products, Sustained Energy and Perpetuem if the product is mixed prior to an event then not kept cold or consumed within 3-5 hours.

Athletes should be encouraged to keep pre-mixed protein-enhanced or lipid-containing carbohydrate drinks under 59 F or ideally at a cooler 40-45 F in order to keep fermentation of environmental bacteria from proliferating in the drink mixture. Freezing the drink the night before an event may result in keeping the macronutrient contents in tact an inhibiting bacterial growth potential. Once the drink is soured to taste or has become noxious to olfactory sensed odor, then it is advised that the drink not be consumed.

Q: If I mix Perpetuem and keep it in the refrigerator for a day or two, will it break down any of the desired properties due to sitting for a while and not being used right away?
A:The effectual benefits ("desired properties") are not lost, but the l-carnitine may deteriorate somewhat, forming crystals within the mix since it is very hygroscopic (has an affinity for water). The deterioration, if any, is minimal in 48 hours post-mix, refrigerated. However, for best results we recommend using Perpetuem as soon as possible after mixing.

Q: Can I use Perpetuem in a hydration pack?
A: You could, but we don't recommend this practice. First, Perpetuem dpes not contain any preservatives, and as a result, the protein component tends to separate after awhile and may settle on the bottom if the mixture is not agitated on occasion. Keeping a carbohydrate/protein fuel thoroughly mixed can be difficult to do when using a hydration pack. Also, when you mix the product in a water bottle, you're better able to see exactly how much you're consuming. Lastly, cleaning the bladder of any hydration pack is substantially easier when you use it for drinking water only. Our recommendation is to use water bottles to mix Perpetuem and hydration packs for water only.

Q:I'm doing a full iron-distance triathlon, and the weather is going to be hot. I want to use Perpetuem for the bike portion. How do you suggest I mix it so that it doesn't get warm and unpalatable?
A: Let's say that the bike portion will take you six hours. You can make all six hours of fuel in two bottles. For example, if you have found (through testing in training) that two scoops of Perpetuem will provide an hour's fuel, put six scoops in and make a 3-hour bottle, fulfilling your hydration requirements with plain water (approx 20-28 fluid ounces/600-830 milliliters per hour) from another bottle or hydration system. Make two 6-scoop bottles and you've got your six hours worth of fuel taken care of. Mix the bottles the night before the race and freeze them. That will keep them cold and palatable as they thaw during the bike portion of the race. If, however, the weather on race day is going to be very hot, or you don't have a way to keep the bottles cold until the bike leg, then try this method: mix and freeze one bottle as above, but in the other put only the six scoops of Perpetuem, and add no water.When you finish your first 3-hour bottle you will need to stop and take a few moments to add cold water to this second. It just takes a few seconds, but now you have a fresh, cold bottle of fuel for the second half of the bike ride. Using insulated bottles also helps, if you don't mind the slight extra weight. One athlete who completed a hot-weather Ironman Australia used this method and wrote us saying, I did as you recommended - had the second bottle of dry Perpetuem powder in my bike Special Needs bag, and just added cool water. It only took 30 seconds or so and I was underway with a bidon of cold Perpetuem for the second half of the bike. Great suggestion, it works like a treat!
