Recently, I’ve been made aware of some interesting new products for runners and triathletes. Here’s a roundup:
Raspberry Lemonade Gu
With the introduction of Raspberry Lemonade, Gu has added another great flavor to its family of energy gels. Even better, this new gel contains 450mg of amino acids and 55mg of sodium but no caffeine – making it a great choice for those avoiding stimulants.
Enjoying just 100 calories in each serving, the Raspberry Lemonade gel is thick and gooey which allows you to take just a few tastes at a time. With its sweet raspberry taste paired perfectly with lemonade, you’ll be reaching for this delicious and convenient gel every time!
The price is $38.40 for a box of 24 from the website. Here’s the link: https://guenergy.com/products/energy-gel?variant=41221147230259
MO Bars offer three great all-natural plant-based options to help with focus, energy, and relief. With two delicious flavors – Berry Coconut and Peanut Butter – these bars will satisfy your taste buds while providing many key benefits.
The Focus Mo Bar contains dates for lasting energy and brain health, Ashwagandha for cognitive performance, Lion’s Mane for inflammation and neuron function, and Tumeric for memory and mood.
For extra energy, the MO Energy bar contains Guarana to reduce fatigue and quickly boost energy while keeping you satiated.
To assist in post-workout recovery, the MO Relief bar offers dates for re-nourishment, Kale for metabolism, bone strength, and muscle development, Chamomile for soothing, and Tumeric and ginger for soreness and inflammation. Each bar is 210 calories with WW awarding them 6 points; making them a great meal replacement option!
I love that they are all-natural and don’t have preservatives in them. I also like the feeling I get when I take them.
A sampler pack is $15. The website is https://ineedmo.com/.
