Hammer Nutrition's: Hammer Gel (Review)

Let's be honest here folks, energy gel isn’t strictly speaking what most people would call appetizing (You wouldn’t swallow a tube of toothpaste would you?). But that isn’t the point now is it? What endurance athletes are looking for is a quickly absorbing, steady burning, palatable energy source that won’t leave them barfing on the course.
At the risk of sounding like a Hammer spokesperson (I’m not), like so many of the company’s products, Hammer Gel gets the job done. No bullshit. Six or seven years ago when I started to get serious about distance running my first foray into gels was with the preeminently popular GU. Somewhere a long the way I burned through a case of Power Bar brand gel. Ultimately I landed on Hammer and haven’t looked back. GU was too sweet, Power Bar caused heartburn. Hammer was just right.

This very afternoon I ran for 5 and a half hours on rugged single track, slurping down 2 to 3 Hammer Gel’s every hour with zero incidences of stomach upset.


Hammer gel is available in a variety of flavors including vanilla and apple-cinnamon, by the single serving packet or bottle.

Give Hammer Gel a try. 

SPECIFICATIONS
•Rock solid energy.
•Made with real fruit and wholesome ingredients.
•Versatile and economical.
•Gluten-Free and Vegan Friendly.
•Contains no MSG.

BENEFITS
 For over a decade, Hammer Gel has been the benchmark of concentrated carbohydrate energy gel, primarily because of what it doesn't contain. Hammer Gel has no added refined, simple sugars and no artificial colors or sweeteners.

Choose either single-serving pouches or the cost-effective jugs for even, reliable energy, not the flash and crash of sugar-loaded products. You get only what's good for you: complex carbohydrates, natural ingredients, and real fruit. The result is a great tasting concentrated fuel source that goes down and digests easier than other energy gels.

Hammer Gel is versatile as well, you can drink it straight, add it to your water bottle, or combine it with Sustained Energy, HEED, and Perpetuem to create a variety of tasty energy combinations for any length activity, anywhere, anytime.
