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, Nocciola, Orange, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter/Chocolate, 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.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Off label use" for Gels I started using Hammer Gel after a race I was in had them at the fuel/water stops. I found them to be much easier on my stomach than my previous fuel choice. So, I started using the Espresso because of the caffeine kick and I wont train without them. However, a recent migraine had me down for 13 hours and I was so nauseous I couldn't take my pain meds. I tried a Hammer Gel to see if I could settle my stomach and the relief was almost instantaneous. Within 15 minutes my nausea had abated and my migraine knocked down a level. I was able to keep some meds and food in my system and I feel like I cut short what can sometimes be a 20+ hour nightmare. Now I reach for my Gel even before pain meds when my headache starts up. Its not fool-proof but I really feel it takes the worst of the edge off when I do. Thanks Hammer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Sensitive Stomachs Hammer Nutrition gels not only taste great and provide excellent results in terms of enhancing endurance ability, but because there are no added simple sugars they are the best choice for athletes like myself who suffer from intestinal issues. As long as I follow consumption of a Hammer gel with a few sips of water, my stomach handles the product well, even when I am running at faster and more intense paces. My favorite flavors are Nicciola and Peanut Butter-Choc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You really should try the peanut butter I absolutely love some of the gel flavors and can't stand some others. I received a sample of the peanut butter gel, and immediately figured that I would hate it. Instead, this gel has been great for pre-run fueling. If you find yourself too close to your run to eat a snack but need to put more than a normal gel in the tank, this is your answer. It satisfies your fueling needs, and it gives you a little more to help you not feel starved as you run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Taste I have tried countless gels and even different varieties of Hammer Gel with not much luck. I have had a lot of GI problems while marathon training so I was at my last straw trying to get it figured out. When Hammer came out with the Peanut Butter flavor, I decided to try yet another gel. The Peanut Butter flavor is delicious and I love the hint of salt. It's the perfect blend. I have had NO GI problems since making the switch! Thank you Hammer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Orange, not so much... Let me just start by saying I love Hammer Gel or there would be fewer stars in the Overall Rating. Just not crazy about the orange flavor and texture. Doesn't taste much like orange and seems a bit thinner than the chocolate I usually use. I wanted to change it up a bit after going through several Hammer Gel packs during my first marathon. Think I'll try peanut butter next time. In terms of performance though, can't beat it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PEANUT BUTTER When they say peanut butter, they mean peanut butter. If you are one of those people who eat peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon, you will love this. It was a little strong for me, however i did love the consistency. The chocolate gel I have is a little thick. I ended up mixing 2 parts peanut butter, 2 parts chocolate, and one part water in my hammer flask. PERFECT !! nice consistency, great flavor, easy clean up.
Date published: 2014-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS! The most important factor in any athletic nutritional item is that it works. Not that it tastes good or is chic. My energy levels remain stable and my perceived apatite stays in check when using this product. The fact that my Espresso Hammer Gel works and tastes good is a major benefit. I look at it this way... if it tastes good, I'll use it, and if it works like it's supposed to, then what more can I ask for.
Date published: 2014-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peanut butter hammer gel!! Yummo Wow. I ordered a mixed order of different hammer gels in different flavors and tried my first one this morning during my long run. The peanut butter is straight up legit. Just like a tablespoon of natural peanut butter! Rock solid energy source (long with a Fizz in my water) and no upset stomach or weird after effects. I think I have found a new product for my training. So excited to try the other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff but... OK. Let me start out by saying that I use this stuff all the time so I'm obviously happy with it. However, there are two things you should know before buying your gels in bulk. First, make sure you like the flavor 'cause there's a lot of it in the bottle. I suggest first purchasing a single pack or a flavor sample pack to be sure you're buying something you like. Second, I haven't found any good smaller container to carry on my bike rides. This stuff is really thick (it's a gel after all). When I put it in the pocket-sized container I found it hard to consume while riding. You can only squeeze so much out and then have to stand by the side of the road with your head bent back like a baby bird waiting for gravity to help. My solution is to fill my pocket container 1/2 full of water and the rest gel. It makes it fluid enough to easily get it out of the container while on the go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stufff I use this on every mtn bike ride. I usually ride early in the morning and don't have time to eat 1-2 hours before my ride. A serving of the hammer gel and then 1 every hour after keeps me riding hard. Then I ear a good breakfast when I get done. Vanilla flavors is mellow and good in the mornings. Tried some of the berries. They are good but too much that early in the morning so I went back to vanilla.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer Gel Perfect for Time Trails For my TT's I am wearing a speed suit. There are no pockets in this kit. This is wear the Hammer gel packs play a crucial role! I am addicted to Peanut Butter Hammer gel. I can tuck one of these inside the bottom of my kit. It fits comfortably. I usually get to the line 10-15 minutes prior to the start so I have it available for right as I start or I can keep it for any energy needs during the TT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and easy on the stomach! I have tried many gels and nothing works on long runs and during races -- including the Boston Marathon -- like Hammer Gel. They are easy on my stomach and provide sustained energy. The espresso flavor is tasty without being too strong and the little caffeine kick is great. Sometimes I enjoy these as a snack or first breakfast when I don't have time for coffee before my morning workout.
Date published: 2016-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Trip to the Tropics I tried the tropical gel and instantly fell in love with the flavor! I really like using the Hammer line of gels because they contain all the flavor and none of the extra sugar. The consistency is perfect, although I have learned from a friend that they are EVEN BETTER when chilled over night. These gels hit the spot right before a run and about 2 hours into a nice easy long escape.
Date published: 2014-08-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great taste, but you gotta want it! I'm a big peanut butter guy, so was very excited to try this new gel. I also had an older bottle of chocolate gel, so I bought two pumps and fantasized some "instant Reese's." But this stuff is waaaay too thick for the pump. Hey, I'm an endurance athlete, but this was redonkulous! Better just to squeeze into the flask, and enjoy the goodness. Even that will give you a workout!
Date published: 2014-05-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny Name- Good Taste Not sure what makes Montana's Huckleberry so special that they get their own flavor, but its a good fit for Gel. I use this in the gel flask and also add it to smoothies and on yogurt and like the flavor overall. I have to admit that I do like Espresso better both on flavor and because of caffeine, but I will keep trying some fruit flavors, as they are better mixers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raspberry Gel I've been using Hammer products for years, and really love the convenience of the gel packs. The new design is great, too. Easier to open on the run and while riding. I have issues with my blood sugar levels, so it's imperative that I keep things balanced. I take one or two gels with me on even a short run to keep levels even - no spikes, no crashes. Love this stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product! Hammer makes high quality, healthy products. Since i started using hammer producta, my performance has improved and my post workout eating habits have become much better, mostly thanks to recoverite. Now, I cant imagine living my active life without them! I originally wasn't crazy about the after taste of the fruit gels, but I became addicted to how well they work! I ran a half marathon and a tough mudder on the gels. No tummy issues whatsoever! I bought the espresso flavor to try and absolutely LOVE them! I also LOVE recoverite and use it for just more than post workout. And Hammer bars are a staple during the school year (I'm a nursing student at PSU) as my go to snack in during classes. They gives me a boost to throw in a run in between classes! I recommend all the hammer products to my friends and fellow athletes. Thank you for all the work you put into your products to help keep us athletes at the top of our game!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Banana gel - GREAT taste! I have been using Hammer products for awhile now and recently added their banana gel to my riding arsenal which includes - hammer bars (apple raisin my fav!) - HEED (strawberry) - Fizz (grape) - Recoverite (strawberry & chocolate) - toss in some cost effective (with style and function!) Hammer clothing and you are good to not only go but keep going!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides continuous energy I have been using Hammer gels for years, and become robotic during endurance mountain bike races to use one gel every 45 minutes. This provides continuous energy and power to my legs. I have noticed that my body does not perform well with caffeine, and gels with protein cause my body to lose energy/power because my digestion system is being taxed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Espresso Pool Side I received my hammer gel which i use for swim workouts while preparing for FINA world masters swimming championships this coming August.

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 Gel for Sensitive Tummies Have tried all types/brands of gu's, beans, chews, etc and all have given me stomach pains/been to sugary until now! Wow! Hammer gels cause me NO stomach pain and I appreciate that they're not sickly sweet. A+ product. My only suggestion to Hammer is: more savory favors please! (Cashew butter, almond, pancake/waffle, bacon favors...?)
