About Hammer Nutrition South Africa

We pride ourselves in providing you with not only the best endurance fuels in the world, but added to that, knowledge and training advice.

From years of experience in endurance we have an amazing library of endurance data to share with you. Hammer Products have distinct advantages that differentiate it from its competitors as detailed below:

  1. Carbs: Not all carbs are alike; Hammer only uses long chain sugars (maltodextrin). All of the other companies use some form of simple sugar, even if it’s from natural fruit. Many use both the long chain sugar (maltodextrin) and short chain sugar (Fructose, Dextrose, Sucrose, Natural Fruit) which contrast the effects of each other and thus render the properties of the long chain sugar ineffective.
  2. Sodium: Hammer promotes a low sodium diet and thus low sodium needs during training and events. Electrolyte replacement is not all sodium, but a delicate blend of the electrolyte minerals in specific percentages. All of these other companies view high sodium as the answer to stave off dehydration.
