We’re committed to the long-term research into natural, alternative sports nutrition products and our initial research into our natural energy gels, focusing on malabsorption and gastrointestinal discomfort has shown a high tolerance for honey feedings during prolonged exercise where participants consumed between 2 and four gels per hour.
