Product Detail & Benefits

Description:

The staples of any energy drink, bar, or gel are carbohydrates. In this regard, Hammer Gel stands alone in today's glutted market of energy products. A look at the ingredient list on the label will tell you why: we use long-chain complex carbohydrates for smooth, consistent energy release. There's only a trace of sugar, so Hammer Gel doesn't set off wild insulin spikes causing "sugar high" and "sugar crash." You won't find our products saturated with cheap, ineffective, commercial-grade sugars, which can ruin health and performance.

Hammer Gel is an easily digested, concentrated source of complex carbohydrates with four amino acids added to enhance performance and prolong energy levels during intense training and competition. Hammer Gel has a syrup-like consistency that mixes easily with water if so desired. You can drink it straight, dilute it, or use it to flavor other Hammer Nutrition fuels. Use it before, during, and after exercise.

Benefits:

Hammer Gel is available in the following delicious flavors: Apple-Cinnamon, Banana, Chocolate, Espresso, Montana Huckleberry, Orange, Peanut Butter, Raspberry, Tropical, Vanilla, and Unflavored.

Since 1995, Hammer Gel has been the benchmark of concentrated carbohydrate energy, primarily because of what it doesn't contain—Hammer Gel has no added refined, simple sugars, and no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Choose either single-serving pouches or cost-effective 26-serving 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, or Perpetuem to create a variety of tasty energy combinations for any length activity—anywhere, anytime.

Notes:

Note: Hammer Flask holds 5-6 servings. Only Espresso and Tropical flavors contain caffeine, 50 mg for Espresso and 25 mg for Tropical per serving.

Caloric Intake - Proper amounts during endurance exercise

Endurance and ultra-endurance athletes require all three forms of fuel the human body uses for energy: carbohydrate, protein, and fat. A major factor for optimal performance is using the right fuel, at the right time, in the right amount. Like every aspect of success in endurance events, proper nutrition requires planning, practice, and training to reap the benefits on race day.

Consuming as little as 40-50 grams or slightly over 1.5-ounce fructose over a 10 hour period may increase blood pressure, blood triglycerides, reduced insulin binding & insulin sensitivity, and increase fat weight gain. The disturbing fact is that the general population has been consuming more than that amount every day for the past 34 years.

Fructose Sweeteners Negatively Impact Blood Sugar and Lipid Metabolism Inhibiting Energy Production

Fructose consumption alters how our body metabolizes energy from blood glucose and lipids resulting in serious health disorders and reducing the rate of energy production. Researchers (1) named several unhealthy conditions associated with excess unnatural fructose processed for its' sweetening property. Total fructose consumption in the USA jumped +26%, (from 64g to 81 g/day between 1970-1997).

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I normally ignore companies when they ask for feedback but this was such a positive experience I didn't mind writing a review. I had used the Montana Huckleberry flavored gel before (albeit in single servings) so I knew it was a solid product and great flavor, but I had never ordered anything directly from the company. The shipping was fast (received 3 days after placing order), and in addition to the product I ordered they sent a large amount of literature about their other products as well as a frankly surprising amount of free samples of their other products. They even included a flask for the gel I ordered which I used in a trail race and worked great. Hammer is clearly committed to customer service and they definitely have my loyalty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for AM Swim Practice! I bought gels because I ran out of gels before a 4.4 mile swim I was doing and these have been great for morning swim practice, the tropical flavor packs a punch with the right amount of caffeine to keep me going at 5am!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Born again Hammer user! It's been a few years since I used Hammer. I typically don't use supplements because I'm Vegan and I don't like strange ingredients in my body. But after some research, I bought several gels and heed packets for my hydration backpack. I used everything according as directed. Not only did I feel great and my energy levels stay high the whole race, I set a new marathon PR by 3 minutes! For me that's awesome because I did not get to train as hard as I wanted to. Thanks Hammer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor! The taste of the Apple Cinnamon single serve gel is similar in taste to apple pie. It's always a favorite treat out on the trails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic flavor I love the taste of peanut butter, especially when I ride. Years ago my first "energy food" was peanut butter and banana sanwiches. This takes me back. Mixing flavors recreates old favorites of "peanut butter and jelly" and "peanut butter and chocolate". Just another reason to "HAMMER AWAY" at fatigue. Thanks Pat C. Corpus Christi, TX

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I have been using Hammer Gel for a couple years. I run several marathons a year and consume a lot of gel on my long training runs. Hammer Gel is more convenient, less expensive, and is as good or better than Gu or other gels. I am very happy with the product.
