Happy Friday! I’m happy to close out the week with an awesome product review!
To be honest, I haven’t really trained using fuel in a couple of months so I was happy to get this opportunity a few weeks ago. I don’t mind gels – in fact, that’s primarily what I use (well that and mini pretzels). I tried chews for a while but then one day my stomach decided that it didn’t like them and that was that.
Let’s start with the basics – what are Science in Sport gels?
“The GO Isotonic Gel was the worlds first isotonic gel effectively delivering an easily digestible and quick supply of carbohydrate for energy during exercise. Isotonic Gels are designed to be consumed without water meaning that you can ensure rapid delivery of carbohydrate to your muscles without the feelings of being bloated that can sometimes occur with over-drinking”.
The thinner consistency of the gels is what really appealed to me. Sometimes thicker gels can be hard to digest on a run. To be brutally honest, the consistency was a little off-putting at first, primarily because I wasn’t used to it. By the second time I used the gel, I really enjoyed it! I was able to slowly take in the gels during a run and there was absolutely no need for water. Most importantly, absolutely no stomach issues!
What flavors are available?
With over 15 flavors, you’re bound to find one, or a few, that you enjoy. For this review I was given the following flavors to try:
Salted Strawberry – By far, this was my absolute favorite! Something about the salt and the sweet makes this gel so delicious. In addition, the salted strawberry is actually an energy gel that includes added electrolytes for energy + hydration benefits.
Double Espresso– This gel includes caffeine (150mg of caffeine in every gel). This flavor was a little sweet for me to take in during a run, but I actually tried it when I needed a little boost before a workout and it worked perfectly!
Apple – This was my second favorite flavor. Not too sweet but definitely had that refreshing apple taste.
Lemon & Mint – This flavor wasn’t horrible, but it was my least favorite. The lemon flavor was a little tart but I did enjoy the mint part of it.
I’m looking forward to continuing to use these gels for my Chicago Marathon training this summer.
