SPOTLIGHT: 32Gi

32Gi® was founded in South Africa in 2009 and today is a leading Endurance Sports Nutrition provider. Our complete focus is providing our customers with high-quality, balanced and sustainable energy and recovery supplements, with a major focus on health and performance.


Not only do we provide the highest quality sports nutrition and supplementation, but we are experts at educating and providing up to date evidence-based knowledge, to ensure you are always ahead of the game in health and performance.


At 32Gi we understand that not all athletes are created equal. What works for one athlete does not necessarily work for another; each has different requirements. An athlete’s session fueling will depend entirely on the kind of session he or she is doing - duration, intensity, discipline - and these are not always performance based.

Science has shown that during high intensity exercise glycogen (natural carbohydrate) stores are mainly utilised to provide energy to the muscles. However, what about at a controlled pace and intensity, where fat can be utilised as a primary energy source?


This is what makes 32Gi® different from others in the world of sports nutrition. We cater for all sorts of athletes and provide a tailored fueling solution for their unique and individual needs. 32Gi® caters not just for the elite athlete performing at a high intensity, but also for athletes who race socially and those that exercise for health, fitness and weight maintenance. 32Gi® utilises a blend of unique carbohydrates to ensure stability whether performing at low or high intensities. 32Gi®’s range is completely designed around the athlete’s unique needs while guiding them to their best fueling strategy, and of course always with a focus on what’s best from a health perspective. 


One of the key requirements for a healthy athlete is a strong immune system. Proper sleep, recovery, nutrition and, if necessary, supplementation, all play a role in optimising your immune system. 32Gi®’s Immunize provides 24/7 athlete immune support with its unique quad formulation of Wellmune®, Vitamin C, Zinc and a Vitamin B blend. While the latter three should be known and accepted vitamins and minerals, Wellmune® may be a foreign concept to many. In short, it is a yeast beta-glucan which has been shown to reduce markers of inflammation in athletes and prevent or decrease the severity of cold and flu symptoms. 


Immunize has also been proven to reduce fatigue, another property attributed to Wellmune® as well as its Vitamin B complex which plays an important role in the body’s energy system. The Vitamin C component is a powerful antioxidant which boosts immune function, improves iron absorption and increases collagen production. Zinc has been shown to aid infection fighting by reducing inflammation and symptoms associated with colds and flu. It is also excellent for fortifying gut bacteria. Immunize is gluten-, dairy-, soy- and GMO free and has no artificial flavourings or colourants.

With a strong immune system, you’re almost guaranteed to stand on the start line of your next race! And that means you’re probably going to need some carbohydrates for fueling. But how much? Your volume of carbohydrate intake will depend on the intensity and duration of your race. For short distance, high intensity you’ll be looking for rapid release products such as the Sports Gel or Race Sports Drink - High Intensity. For moderate to longer duration and intensity sessions or races the Race Pro 300 Gel and the Rapid Energy Isotonic Sports Drink, both with additional protein, are two of your top choices. For those proper endurance events with many hours at low to moderate intensity, our Race Pro Super Carb/ Protein Drink and honey peanut Race Pro Energy Bar will keep you fueled. Remember that overloading with carbohydrates - either before or during your race - will not be beneficial and is more likely to lead to GIT issues than anything else. 

After your race it's essential to replenish lost fluids. In-race hydration can never meet your fluid needs 100% (your digestive system just cannot function fast enough during exercise), meaning you will always need to replenish and replace post-session. The human body is largely made up of water and for optimal recovery and general function, correct hydration levels are key. 

32Gi’s® Hydrate - Electrolyte Hydration Sports Drink is a naturally flavoured, crisp and refreshing tasting hydration option which is great for shorter sessions and as a complement to other products on longer sessions. It is especially useful on hot events where your sweat rate and electrolyte loss may be higher than usual and an all-in-one carb/ electrolyte drink may result in your consuming too many carbohydrates and consequently suffering from GI distress.

The final step after every athlete’s big race is proper recovery. After all, “Failure to recover properly from a session means you failed that session.” Post-exercise muscle recovery can be broken down into two phases - muscle glycogen replenishment and muscle protein synthesis. The first step is achieved through carbohydrate intake and the second through protein. This is where the 32Gi Plant-based Protein and Recover Protein Sports Drink with a 3:1 Carb: Protein ratio come in. These provide essential amino acids and ensure that your body is in a positive nitrogen balance in order for optimal recovery to take place. 

The final steps in a proper recovery process are to ensure that you are getting sufficient rest, sleep and fresh, whole-food nutrition.
