  • Beta Alanine fends off lactic acid buildup
  • Chia Surge energy gel can be digested on its own without water, so you won't need to wait for the next aid station
  • This vegan endurance gel supplies ample antioxidants, Vitamin C and Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Each packet contains 75 calories

Vitalyte Chia Surge Energy Gelis rated4.0out of5by1.
Rated4out of5byfromPerforms better than it looksI've been racing trail ultras for years and have tried everything on the market for racing fuel. Vitalyte may not have the best texture or appearance, but it provides a better boost sans caffeine than its competitors. I don't buy gels for their appearance and if it works it's worth chasing down with a quick shot from a water bottle if the texture is a bit unusual. If you want maximum results without the over caffeinated shakes, I would definitely give this product a try!
