As an endurance "athlete" I want to give my body the best Fuel and since I've discovered 33Fuel over 6 years ago as being just that: Fuel for the body. Being health conscience, nearly Plant based, want the best for my environment and nature I advise everyone to give these products a go. I am very proud to align myself with this company as an ambassador. I believe in the vision of Erica & Warren and they have my gut health and nature at the forefront of their endeavor to make the endurance athlete(beginner, mid pack or elite) the best sports enthusiast they can be and the planet a better place. The gels are unique and you can add any fluid to it(water/coconut water/OJ and of course a shot of Espresso!). In over 10 Ultra marathons and several marathons 33fuel products have been my companion to run free of having any stomach issues other than the nervous butterflies at the start line...I use the greens powder daily to ensure I get the right micro-nutrients to help me recover during heavy training loads. Onwards and upwards together!!
After years of stomach problems using other sports nutrition supplements which effected my training and racing performance I found 33fuel. No more stomach issues on and off the bike and I'm finally confident in my fuelling strategies which has show in my fitness and performance on the bike.
Absolutely love these, so much better than energy gels. Much easier on the stomach and taste great.
If you've ever struggled with traditional energy gels or are simply looking for a more natural way to fuel, I'd highly recommend! Very simple ingredient list so you don't need to research what it's really made of. Subtle vanilla flavour that can be customised by using different liquid (water, juice, coffee, etc). Very clever packaging that is easy to carry (smaller than it looks on the image), fully recyclable and environmentally conscious (you add the water and it's ready to use within 24h). Unique texture that goes down easily, provides a balanced energy release (rather than a big spike and crash) and doesn't require chasing with water thanks to the natural ingredients. If you're an endurance enthusiast of any experience and are considering a more natural and sustainable fuel source to traditional gels, give it a try!
I used these gels during a sub 3 hour marathon, taking one every three to four miles. At the start of the race I felt a bit of indigestion so was concerned whether the gels would settle, but they were great. I felt better soon enough and finished strong, avoiding hitting the wall. These are bigger than typical gels but definitely do the job
