33Fuel review, Runner's World magazine
It's a 33Fuel review triple whammy here from Runner's World magazine. The Runner's World team are a smart bunch when it comes to what works for real running performance and 33Fuel's products have made their hallowed pages several times. Here's what they had to say:
Review 1: the perfect Sub-3 marathon breakfast:
Editor Andy Dixon used 33Fuel's Pre and Post Workout Shakes for a successful sub-3 hour marathon attempt in London. He explained afterwards, "there's a part of my sub-3 certificate with 33Fuel's name on it!".
Writing about the experience in the magazine Dixon added:
"During training I worked out that a solid breakfast pre-run didn't sit well in my stomach. Instead I opted for a 33Fuel's Pre and Post Workout Shake (www.33fuel.com) which fixed my digestive issues while still giving me plenty of energy for the run."

Review 2: Chia Energy Gels recommended on the run
Straight to the point as ever, Runner's World's review of 33Fuel's unique Chia Energy Gels concluded runners could, "avoid a sugar crash with this lower-GI gel designed for a sustained energy boost".

Review 3: the ultimate immune system boosters
Looking into immune function Runner's World also recommend 33Fuel Chia Energy Gels on the run, and Pre and Post Workout Shakes as pre or post-run fuel/refuel for anyone looking to optimise immune function this season.
"It's important to take in protein [when running long] which is needed for muscle repair and to fuel amino acids that your body may turn to for fuel in the later stages of long runs if it runs low on glucose. Research has shown that even moderate protein deficiency can result in impaired immune function.
"Try Chia Energy Gels (www.33fuel.com), which strike the right carb/protein fuel balance for long runs, with protein-rich chia seeds, low-GI, high-carb palm sugar, plus antioxidants, omega-3 and electrolytes.
"The company also does excellent Pre and Post Workout Shakes."
