To give you a little background on me and gels in the past, I can sum it up pretty short. About 8 years ago I was running in a marathon and a volunteer handed me a gel. It was one of those times I actually was hungry in the race so I took it. I was stupid and didn't look and notice it was chocolate in the first place. (I hate chocolate) and it was gooey and stuck in my throat. By the time I got to the water to wash it down, all I felt like doing was throwing it up, it just didn't sit well with me. Well lets just say, since then I have completely avoided any gels, assuming they would all be the same.
Huma Gel definitely isn't the same as the one I tried years ago. In fact, it wasn't gooey it was actually really easy to swallow. The flavors were actually quite good and I have to say immediately after taking it I thought to myself, I would use this again. (That for me says a lot!)
The best part, I had absolutely no stomach issues after. For anyone who has tried gels, this alone says a lot!
A few little facts about these fabulous little gels.
These Huma Gels have Chia Seeds in them. Chia seeds are stocked full of Omega 3's. Which is if great because I am coming off a long injury and I take Omega 3's because they have been shown to help promote healing. So this ingredient was highly popular on my list of likes! They also have 9 Essential Amino Acids and Soluble Fiber.
(Let me just say, check out the ingredients, you'll notice everything in them are things we have actually heard of, not to mention healthy too!)
Strawberry Huma Gel
Apple Cinnamon Huma Gel
Pretty great, right? So how do you use Huma Gels? It's pretty simple, for up to 2 hours of exercise you take it about 35 minutes before starting. For 2 or more hours you take it about 15 minutes before starting. All you have to do is make sure you drink a glass of water with it, they recommend 8-10oz.
Huma Gels are a great and healthy way to get the extra sugars needed to replace what is lost and give you the nutrients you need to help you in your fitness goals!
