I was contacted by the people at VFuel awhile back to do a giveaway and review. They were working on a new website so we waited until it was complete so I could share it with you! It is beautiful, so be sure to go take a look. I was excited to try this endurance gel because I had heard awesome things about the natural ingredients used, without sacrificing taste. As a picky “taster”, I have to admit they hit the nail on the head with this product!
There are three flavors: chocolate, vanilla, and peach cobbler (my favorite!) All three flavors are made with organic and natural flavors. No extra additives, nothing you can’t pronounce, etc. I had also been told wonderful things about the digestibility of this gel. Folks, if you have a sensitive stomach when it comes to fueling during endurance activities, I challenge you to try out VFuel. Apparently, the issue that causes people GI distress is the fructose in the gels. VFuel uses dextrose, which is much easier to digest. Your body can only handle so much fructose when you are working out, so adding more to it can cause bloating, constipation, or diarrhea, so why do it to yourself? try something new!
Ok, so what about performance? I was skeptical about the idea of this new formula giving me the energy and endurance I needed for marathon training like other gels can, and honestly, I felt just as great using this gel as I have with other brands. It gave me the boost I needed mid run, and I used it during Goofy’s challenge in January (where I PR’ed) and the Princess half marathon in February (where I PRed). So obviously, it’s helping me! I will continue to use it, and know that not only am I fueling my body, but that I am doing so with healthy and natural ingredients. I can’t wait for yall to try this product for yourselves.
