Ignite Naturals Reload Energy Gel Review & Giveaway

Ignite Naturals Energy Gels (HERE) offered to let me try their Reload Energy Gels (HERE).   I have not personally seen these energy gels at local running stores or discount stores.  So, I was excited to try something different.  Each pack has about 100 calories and 25g carbs.  Energy gels are something you need to get use to.  But, after you've downed a few, they become an easy go-to source of energy and fuel during your long workouts.  They are portable and easy to store in your waste pack, handheld water bottle, saddle bag or gym bag.



Reload ingredients:

  • 100% natural fig paste: Easily digestible source of energy, and mineral rich to replete electrolytes
  • Maqui berry extract: Antioxidant protects heart function, and a natural source of minerals and flavonoids
  • Peak ATP: Elevates APT levels to create more energy naturally
  • CoQ10 ubiquinone: Antioxidant generates cellular energy, and supports healthy heart function
  • Ecklonia cava: Potent antioxidant and supports the reduction of inflammatory cytokines in tissue
  • Sea salt: Electrolyte maintaining osmotic pressure in extracellular fluid, loaded with trace minerals
  • Reload benefits:

  • Replenishes carbohydrates and removes waste efficiently†
  • Helps reduce oxidative stress by removing lactose acid from muscles so they recover faster
  • Delivers direct ATP energy for muscles without dehydrating and crash-inducing caffeine
  • Wholefood ingredients for easy digestion and easy on the body†
  • 100% natural D-fructose that enhances delivery of glucose, nutrients and oxygen to working muscles
  • NO processed additives (maltodextrins), just high quality natural sugars that convert quickly to glycogen to power muscles
  • NO processed sugars that cause oxidative stress and free radical formation†
  • No water for mixing needed
Reload Energy Gels are “naturally” better even down to the way you carry these single serve, easy open packages with you… Reload has a Power Clip that hooks directly onto a belt or gear for faster, easier access. No more fumbling with zippers or pockets so hands are free, mind stays focused.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I received a sampler pack - one of each flavor:
Raspberry Pomegranate
Wildberry
Blackberry Blueberry
 
I'm usually not too keen on berry flavored energy gels.  I much prefer vanilla, chocolate, mint-chocolate, honey and the occassional orange.  So, I was thinking I wouldn't be able to down it.  Because let's face it - with energy gels, a lot is about the first impression of the taste, flavor and consistency.  The rest (the benefits) come later.  If you can't down it, you won't see the benefits.  I surprisingly really liked them.  I much preferred the Raspberry Pomegranate and Blackberry Blueberry flavors over wildberry.  The consistency was good and it went down well.  I tried them on several runs last fall and they teared open well too.  That can also be a problem with some other brands.

  28. I haven't heard of these yet. I'd love to try them because I have terrible heartburn on long runs and haven't quite been able to pinpoint the culprit in my fuel. I think I'd go with the Blackberry Blueberry Gel. Hopefully they'll expand their flavors to tropical at some point, cause I'm not big on berry flavored either.
