Hammer Gel: Real fuel, not candy!

If the label of your energy gel says it contains fructose, sucrose (sometimes disguised as cane syrup or honey), or glucose, it contains simple sugar. Besides posing significant, multiple threats to your health, simple sugar causes rapid, performance-ruining swings in energy levels as well as digestive distress.

The bottom line is using "ose" sugars to fuel your body is similar to lighting a piece of paper on fire. You get a fast heat, but it's a very limited amount. It burns out quickly, and you have to continually feed the fire. That's just flat-out inefficient and wrong. Check the labels on energy gels for "ose" sugar, and avoid it - you don't want or need that garbage in your body!

Instead, rely on Hammer Gel, which contains absolutely no added simple sugars. The complex carbohydrate maltodextrin in Hammer Gel delivers sustained energy without the rapid energy spikes and health risks of simple sugars.

Maltodextrin has a Glycemic Index value of 100, which is equal to glucose (100) and higher than sucrose (58-65) and fructose (12-25). This means that maltodextrin raises blood sugar levels as effectively as glucose and does it faster than other simple sugars. During and immediately following exercise, a high-GI carbohydrate - one that elevates blood sugar levels rapidly - offers a most-desirable and beneficial effect.

Hammer Gel is unmatched in its ability to provide athletes with sustained energy in an extremely convenient and tasty, concentrated form:

  • Provides rock solid energy
  • Raises blood sugar levels fast
  • Smooth and easy to digest
  • Natural ingredients, no added simple sugars, artificial colors, or artificial sweeteners

Hammer Gel is real endurance fuel - not candy! Enjoy delicious Hammer Gel as your sole energy source, or combine it with other Hammer fuels.

Fueling with fructose? Study says it makes you less likely to exercise

Are you finding it harder and harder to muster up the energy to exercise? If you are fueling with fructose, you now know what to blame.

A new study from researchers from the University of Illinois, published in April 2015, found that a diet of fructose-containing foods makes it less likely you'll exercise.

The research also reaffirmed that fructose consumption is responsible for weight gain, and can adversely affect where on your body those extra pounds are stored.

With Hammer Gel you can rest assured that your energy gel won't drain your motivation to exercise. It will, however, provide you with the consistent and sustainable energy you need for peak performance every time.
