Another Satisfied

"I have been using e-Gel and e-Fuel for a few years now and have found it superior to any other energy products that I have tried. Most other products give me a boost but then I end up crashing an hour or so after using them. I do not have that experience with your products. I seem to have a gentle letdown from the e-Gel. The e-Fuel is superior to any other product I have tried for refueling after a run, bike ride, or tough hike. My husband, an avid trail runner, agrees that your product is better than any others that he has tried. We found it to be "life saving" for our 10 year-old son when we were doing the trek into Everest Base Camp. We were at 16,000 feet and ran into a sudden blizzard. We had been hiking for about 3 hours and starting to get tired. The storm hit us with very little warning. We suited up in our cold weather clothing and still had about an hour hike to go. Our son started to slow down and would stop at any rock, wanting to sit down and sleep. We could not stop or carry him as we needed him to keep moving. We were able to get him to take an e-Gel and within 10 minutes there was a noticable difference in his energy. He started talking again and moving along without any trouble. We are so glad we had the e-Gel!" (read more)

e-Fuel Endurance Blend

If you are researching sports drinks then you probably already know the problem with Gatorade, it is 100% sugar! In addition, Gatorade does not include the vitamins and antioxidants found in e-Fuel and other good sports drinks. Gatorade has NO complex carbohydrates compared to e-Fuel which is 71% complex which allows e-Fuel to deliver nearly twice the energy click here to learn why.

Maltodextrin is the preferred carbohydrate source for endurance athletes and as such it is the primary ingredient in e-Fuel as well as most other good products on the market. Gatorade is 100% sugar. The danger of high sugar content products such as Gatorade is that they can elevate your blood sugar level too far too fast which can lead to a sugar crash (also known as bonking). Higher sugar content also raises the osmolality of the product which can reduce energy delivery, delay fluid absorption and promote dehydration. 
e-Fuel is designed to provide complete and balanced electrolyte replacement that is critical for proper hydration and to avoid muscle cramping. The sodium and potassium levels in e-Fuel are designed to meet the American College of Sports Medicine's recommendation for electrolyte replacement during intense athletic activity.
The Citrates in e-Fuel assist in the carbohydrate to energy conversion process as well as reduce and slow the build-up of lactic acid in your muscles.
e-Fuel is one of the few sports drinks on the market that contains antioxidant vitamins C and E to help protect against tissue damage, reduce soreness and aid in the recovery process.
Protein has to go through a digestive process which draws blood away from working muscles to the stomach and intestines. When you are competing in an aerobic activity you want as much blood as possible supplied to your muscles carrying fresh oxygen for the energy conversion process. Consequently, independent studies have found no benefit of protein in a sports drink. See the following article from the American College of Sports Medicine for a more complete discussion:

      Protein-added Sports Drinks Don't Boost Performance
