Epic Bar Bars Epic Bar Bars
Carefully curated for the meat eater with a penchant for savory snacks, the Epic Bar delivers rich flavor jam-packed with essential vitamins and nutrients. Each bar uses a different "base" ingredient, such as beef, bison, pork, lamb, turkey, or chicken. Since the animals sourced are grass-fed or raised on a natural diet (turkeys and chickens are omnivorous), you'll reap the benefits of ingesting Omega-3 fatty acids for anti-inflammatory properties and cardiovascular health. These bars also contain higher levels of vitamins A and E, as well as copious free-radical fighting antioxidants. And for athletes looking to rebuild muscle at the end of strenuous workouts, the bar's grass-fed meat contains conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, promoting lean muscle development.

First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot - 30oz. Bottle First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot - 30oz. Bottle
When you need maximum calories, but want minimal bulk, EFS Liquid Shot will have your belly full and your legs flying. In fact, EFS Liquid Shot contains so many calories, that it's not fair to compare it to other liquid nourishment, be it gels or drinks. The 30-ounce bottle contains six, 400 calorie servings, which far outdoes any other gels, with most weighing in at 100 calories each. You get 100-milligrams of amino acids in a combination of glutamine and isoleucine, leucine, and valine. To keep your system functioning, the Liquid Shot also features 400-milligrams sodium, 290 milligrams potassium, 150 milligrams calcium, 120 milligrams magnesium, and 600 milligrams chloride, because you need more than just salt to keep all your pistons firing. Finally, you won't be squeezing a sticky gel into your mouth. The EPS has a higher viscosity due to the lack of gelling agents. It goes down easier and needs less water to dilute it. The container can sit sealed and unrefrigerated for a year, but once opened, it should be stowed in your refrigerator. If a flask is unfinished after a ride, pop it in the fridge and keep it there until the next ride.

First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot - 6 Pack First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot - 6 Pack
First Endurance EFS Liquid Shots do much more than replace the carbs and electrolytes that we burn while we work out. They work to balance these nutrients to help your body work more efficiently. EFS Liquid is packed with carbohydrates, amino acids, and electrolytes to keep you much more than hydrated during your ride. One serving, according to First Endurance, is 5 ounces of liquid. Each serving packs 400 calories. It contains 100g of carbohydrates in a mix of glucose, maltodextrin, and sucrose for a blend of fast-acting, slow-acting, and easy-absorbing carbs. The bottle also has 1000mg of amino acids, which break down into glutamine and the branch-chain amino acids isoleucine, leucine, and valine. It also contains a heavy-duty electrolyte blend of 400mg sodium, 290mg potassium, 150mg calcium, 120mg magnesium, and 600mg chloride. We sweat salt, and the lack of sodium can lead to cramping. You don't however, just want to replace salt, as First Endurance knows. The liquid Shot keeps your electrolytes balanced while you ride to help with absorption and reduce lactic acid build-up.

First Endurance Multi V First Endurance Multi V
First Endurance Multi-V is much more than just a multi-vitamin. Developed specifically for endurance athletes, Multi-V contains, in addition to vitamins and minerals, clinically effective doses of enzymes, iron, green tea, Gingko Biloba, and Omega-3 fatty acids. It also contains Carbogen, which is proven to break down multi-chain carbohydrates into simple glucose. This is important for endurance athletes because glucose is readily accessible and useable for working muscles. What's really unique about Carbogen is that even with this fast breakdown of carbohydrates, there is no effect on insulin. With no insulin spike, your blood sugar remains elevated for many hours so it can fuel working muscles and improve performance. Clinical studies showed that endurance athletes who use Multi-V had a 23% increase in blood glucose levels during high intensity exercise and that they sustained the increase in blood glucose levels for 5 hours, They also had a significant decrease in the accumulation of blood lactate (58% average) and a 43% increase in time to exhaustion, as well as a decreased rate of perceived exertion (RPE).

First Endurance PreRace First Endurance PreRace
Boost your mental clarity and improve cardiac output during intense training sessions and races with the First Endurance PreRace drink mix. Working synergistically by combining a neuro stimulate proprietary blend to improve cognitive function with ingredients that stimulate the Nitric Oxide system, PreRace boosts your efforts with just one scoop 30 to 45-minutes before working out. This mix doesn't contain any artificial sweeteners or flavor additives, allowing you to mix it with a flavored electrolyte drink before exercising or racing. A favorite among athletes, you'll find 200-milligrams of caffeine per serving to increase mental clarity before going hard. That's the same as two cups of strong coffee in a single jolt, giving you a powerful boost before exercising. Additionally, you'll find Taurine and Citrulline Malate work to improve cardiac output by stimulating vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels). First Endurance recommends starting out with a 1/2-scoop before exercise to get used to its overall strength and effects. Each tub contains 98-grams, which is approximately 20 servings of PreRace mixture.

Hammer Nutrition Anti Oxidant Booster Hammer Nutrition Anti Oxidant Booster
Here's what you need to do in the first 30 minutes after any workout: get some protein in your system, as well as some carbs. The easiest way to get the protein part is to use a whey protein powder, like Hammer Whey, but you should also make sure you refuel spent antioxidant stores, using something like Hammer's Anti Oxidant Booster. While you may understand why you need to replenish protein (to add back the used-up amino acids in your muscles, since that post-ride soreness you feel is only going to last longer if you don't), the antioxidant side of the coin is less well understood by most cyclists. So here's what you need to know. People who exercise for more than 90 minutes, and especially those who go into the "red," past 80% of their VO2 limit with any regularity, are consuming more oxygen. That's obvious. But what's less obvious is that the more air you breath, the more you're creating free radicals in your system, and free radical production, while necessary to breath, is also believed to be one of the biggest causes of illness and aging. And as cyclists we're also struck by another cause of free radical production: UV radiation. Antioxidants, like vitamins C and E, attack free-radical production and scavenge away the negative, harmful free electrons created by exercise (and simply through normal respiration). Hammer Anti Oxidant Booster goes one better than over-the-counter vitamins, because it's made to work as a system. Antioxidants work better together, so Anti Oxidant Booster combines two strains of vitamin ... it fights harmful free radical production that's known to accelerate illness and aging... E, called tocopherol and tocotrienol. Don't worry about the jargon. The two strains are necessary because "vitamin E" is too often tocopherol and not tocotrienol, and studies show that the former only works effectively if it's paired with the latter. Another key ingredient in Anti Oxidant Booster is Lutein (common in carrots and yams). This carotenoid attac...

Hammer Nutrition Boron Hammer Nutrition Boron
We all know that if you're going to train hard you also need to eat a healthy diet full of vitamins and minerals. Yet, we also know that sometimes life gets in the way and we don't get the nutrition we need. The Hammer Nutrition Boron Caps make up for mineral inadequacies in your diet and help maintain healthy bones. When asked to name a few minerals, calcium, magnesium, and even the lesser known phosphorus probably roll off your tongue fairly easily. Boron isn't as easily listed, but the former three aren't able to function within your system without it. During periods of increased training volume or intensity, when you are at the greatest risk of depletion, Boron is vital to the production of anabolic hormones to maintain healthy bone mineral mass. Additionally, it helps to ensure complete recovery from efforts. The Hammer Nutrition Boron is gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Recommended dosage is a single capsule daily. It comes in a bottle of 90 capsules.

Honey Stinger Gluten Free Waffles Honey Stinger Gluten Free Waffles
Billed as the first gluten-free waffle offering for endurance sports, the Gluten Free Waffles bring Honey Stinger's delicious flavor profiles and waffle-patterned goodness to a gluten-free package for riders, hikers, or trail runners who can't process gluten or those who are just looking for more waffle options in addition to the standard, gluten-based fare. Despite their tasty appearance and tantalizing flavors, Honey Stinger's Waffles are created specifically for high-output activities, so it's not highly recommended that you consume them as a midday snack on a regular basis. They're packaged in convenient single-serving units that tuck easily into a jersey or running vest pocket for that moment (typically at the three hour mark) when you'd like to eat something with a bit of substance. The Stinger Waffles are simultaneously crunchy and chewy as you eat them. And unlike bizarre lab-born products, the natural ingredients in the Waffles are quite palatable and go down easy. Much like its other energy foods, Honey Stinger Waffles rely on honey, nature's energy food, for a majority of the carbohydrate load. Honey's blend of fructose and glucose is easily digested and acts quickly to give you a burst of energy, and it's backed up with a gluten-free flour blend along with organic cane sugar and rice syrup.

Mountain Might Sport Supplement Mountain Might Sport Supplement
A not-so-secret of elite athletes is altitude training. Specifically, the "live high, train low" mantra, the former part which dictates living at higher altitude to increase red blood cell count and hemoglobin production, thereby increasing circulatory capacity, while the latter step referring to the fact that the body can be pushed harder at lower altitudes while training, which makes for a faster training recovery times and greater performance thresholds when game day comes. Because not all of us have the luxury of access to such venues, however, the Mountain Might Sport Supplement was created to essentially duplicate the positive effects of altitude on the body. Mountain Might has completed rigorous testing and complies with all NC, WADA, NFL, and IOC standards. And in fact, the ingredient list is fairly small: B-12, iron, sodium phosphate, and an Adaptive Altitude complex which includes N-acetyl-cysteine and hawthorn berry powder. So, how does it work' Well, there is scientific research that indicates that improvements in red blood cell hemoglobin concentrations are not induced by our kidneys as they become deoxygenated, as was previously thought. Instead, Mountain Might's research shows that it is actually our oxygen sensors that regulate both blood cell production as well as strengthened lung ventilation. However, these sensors do not respond directly to lower oxygen levels. Instead, they are activated by thiol compounds which are molecules released during hypoxia. Essentially, if the body can be triggered to release thiol molecules, then the altitude training response begins, regardless of whether or not the athlete is actually at altitude. This means that if thiol molecules are detected, our body begins the process of acclimating. In its research Mountain Might discovered that significant amounts of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) a naturally occurring anti-oxidant precursor, increase thiol in the body. As mentioned, Mountain Might Sport Supplement includes ...

We're into the know-how behind the can-do, though, so we dug through the goods to find out what makes them tick. The ABCs of Picky Bars begin with Agave, end with Walnuts, and are filled out by equally "real" ingredients that target the sweet-spot of a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein. The most exotic-sounding entry on the list is Pepitas, which are actually just pumpkin seeds, and which Picky Bars suggests help in recovery and metabolizing sugars. The rest of the normal-type foodstuffs are chosen for similar science-y benefits -- not even the pedestrian, who-needs-an-excuse chocolate chip is spared from scrutiny (anti-toxin properties that promote blood flow). Of course, if the exhaustive biology informing the ingredient choices isn't enough, just trying one will win you over. They may resemble typical workout bars, but they don't taste like them. They're also dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and vegan, so the only bar to entry is trying to tear the package open with your teeth in the saddle.

Science in Sport GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels Science in Sport GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels
The first time you try one of Science in Sport's GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels, it's going to feel a little bit weird. Not in a bad way, mind you, but the company's highly scientific approach to athletic nutrition has resulted in a noticeably thinner consistency gel than you're probably used to. This allows faster absorption regardless of your water bottle status, and leaves none of that weird sticky aftertaste that can be so disgustingly distracting when you're on the rivet and just trying to survive to the finish line. While these gels aren't alone in harnessing caffeine's benefits for lowering fatigue perceptions, they do set themselves apart from the crowd with their isotonic designation. This means they're designed to mirror the dissolved particle concentration of the fluid in your body's cells, which allows for easy transfer across cell membranes. That means the energy they contain goes from your stomach to your blood stream without needing extra water. Comparatively, thicker gels are hypertonic, meaning they have a higher concentration of dissolved particles than your cell fluid and require extra liquid in order to encourage absorption. If you don't drink the recommended volume of fluid with them, hypertonic gels absorb slowly and can cause some rather unfortunate stomach discomfort. And if you've ever been low on water but needed some energy, you know first-hand that puffy pain is not something you want to deal with in the middle of a race. In short, the GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels deliver 75mg of caffeine and 22g of carbohydrates quickly and aren't dependent on having a glut of water on board to access that energy boost. That does mean that each packet is a slightly larger volume than the gels you're used to, which allows that thinner isotonic consistency while still delivering the necessary nutrients to fuel the ride. For the racers among us, the GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels also offer some peace of mind from the whirling chatter of tainted supplemen...

And then that slight edge of fatigue starts to creep in as we weigh the chances of powering to the line without bonking versus dealing with the thick, sticky, stomach-turning taste of the little packet of goo tucked in our back pocket. We've paid the price for pushing through more than once, running out of gas at 200 meters to go and helplessly watching the group fly by without any watts to respond. That, however, all changes with Science in Sport's GO Isotonic Gels. The key differentiator that sets these gels apart from the masses of others on the market is in the name. They're isotonic, which isn't just a fancy way of saying they're refreshing. It means they're designed with the same osmotic pressure already present in your body, so they deliver their 22 grams of carbohydrates quickly without requiring an extra-large helping of water in your already overtaxed stomach. How this plays out in the real world is a slightly larger volume per packet and a thinner consistency. The Isotonic Gels go down easier for a much-needed energy boost without any sticky residue or finicky bottle handling to distract you from the task at hand. For the racers out there, the GO Isotonic Gels also offer some peace of mind from the whirling chatter of tainted supplements and suspicious substances.

Skratch Labs Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix - Box Skratch Labs Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix - Box
Dr. Allen Lim has worked with professional cyclists to develop the very best in hydration solutions. the Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most versatile drink mixes offered by Skratch Labs -- perfect for pre-hydration or off-the-bike hydration. It was created as a response to riders constantly complaining of headaches, and they were plagued with stomach problems stemming from improper hydration. But, the problem didn't stem from not drinking enough, rather that the riders weren't putting the right fluids in their bodies, and the results were both painful and immediately apparent. Unlike many sports drinks, which are formulated around electrolyte or caloric replenishment before or during exercise, the Daily Electrolyte Mix focuses on a preemptive hydration strike to ensure that your body's sodium levels are optimized before physical exertion. Lim discovered that the rampant headaches that were plaguing his group of pros were not induced by a lack of fluids, but from a lack of sodium -- a very typical symptom of dehydration. Essentially, your kidneys regulate fluid retention based on the body's concentration of sodium. When sodium concentration is high, your body is forced to hold on to that fluid to dilute it. But when your sodium levels get too low from sweat loss, the opposite happens and your kidneys must expel that fluid. Lim's mix is designed to keep your body's sodium balance carefully regulated, maintaining hydration while also slowing diuresis. With diuresis slowed, you'll be able to pre-hydrate, and be able to drink more before a race without making those three inopportune bathroom breaks right before your call-up. If these concepts around a sodium-based formula sound familiar, that's because they are. Lim's drink mix contains nearly four times the amount of sodium in many convenience store sports drinks, putting it on par with emergency-grade rehydration salt formulas like Pedialyte, and those used by the World Heal...

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix - 20 Pack Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix - 20 Pack
Skratch Labs' Exercise Hydration Mix uses all natural ingredients to replenish the fluids and electrolytes you lose during intense physical exertion. Dr. Allen Lim developed this unique formula for pro riders plagued by headaches and upset stomachs caused by the artificial ingredients found in most sports drinks. Lim found that the key to maintaining hydration wasn't simply in electrolyte replacement, but rather relied on regulating the body's sodium levels, which is why the Exercise Hydration Mix contains a level of sodium that is similar to many emergency-grade rehydration formulas. And because Lim's formula uses all natural ingredients and is only flavored with real fruit, it's easy on your stomach while providing just enough calories to refuel your working muscles. It also tastes great, probably because it wasn't formulated with a list of chemicals we can't pronounce.

Skratch Labs Hyper Hydration Drink Mix Skratch Labs Hyper Hydration Drink Mix
First things first: Skratch Labs didn't make the Hyper Hydration Drink Mix for casual training or everyday drinking. It's designed specifically for endurance athletes who find themselves coated in white crust after a race, hooked up to an IV, or otherwise fresh out of salt after a long period of intense exertion. Each pouch contains as much sodium as a bag of potato chips and less sugar than almost any other drink mix, because that's what you really need. It's been proven that sugar isn't particularly important for recovery, so Skratch focuses on sodium. Excessive salt loss is dangerous, as well as performance inhibiting, so it's important to re-up after extended high-intensity exercise. Hyper Hydration doesn't taste particularly salty, though, because it's paired with a little glucose, natural mango flavor, and citrate, which has been shown to ease digestion and speed energy-creating pathways.

It happens. We push our minds, our bodies, and our pedals until we can push no more. When your fuel is spent and dehydration starts to tap you on the shoulder, tap back. Skratch Labs' Rescue Hydration Mix isn't intended to kick-start your next 2000-foot climb or your next series of pulls off the front of the pack.

Its formula is designed to replenish cells that have become dehydrated.

Skratch Labs recommends consuming two-to-four servings per day of rigorous riding, but you can safely consume more if absolutely necessary.

Vega Maca Vega Maca
Vega touts its Maca root supplement for its adaptogenic properties, which was an unfamiliar word for us when we first saw it, too. Basically, being adaptogenic means that something supports the health of your adrenal system to improve how your body releases and manages hormones in response to stress. Vega claims that adaptogens like maca thereby increase your general sense of well-being, but we recognize the benefits adrenal health can bring to endurance athletes while our bodies adapt to constant stress throughout training. Maca also provides a kick of B12 and iron, which definitely increase your red blood cells' well-being -- an effect your oxygen-hungry muscles may appreciate during a workout and while recovering. Vega purchases the maca root from Peruvian farmers 14,000 above sea level in the Andean highlands who produce it with the same organic, sustainable farming practices traditionally employed in the region. The root is then gelatinized, a process of water heating that breaks down the root's starch to effectively concentrate the micronutrients for more efficient absorption.

Vega Thrive Fitness Book Vega Thrive Fitness Book
Thrive Fitness, written by Ironman athlete Brendan Brazier, is a companion for Vega's "Thrive" and "Thrive Foods" books. While the other books address healthful lifestyle and food choices, "Thrive Fitness" translates Vega's philosophy of well-being to the realm of athletic training. The book includes a Thrive-inspired breakdown of workout foods, illustrated exercises, and a six-week training plan that will produce the usual training plan benefits -- strength, endurance, weight loss, and fewer sport-related injuries, to name a few. "Thrive Fitness" goes a step beyond similar plans in other publications because it isn't just a training manual. It's not just about hitting a fitness target, it's about effecting a lifestyle change that makes your fitness target a constant reality without interrupting your normal, everyday life. This produces benefits like better sleep -- which helps with recovery -- lower salt and sugar cravings, and even less risk of cardiovascular disease. Brazier is careful to indicate that, while it's designed to help endurance athletes of all stripes achieve lasting fitness goals, the philosophy in "Thrive Fitness" also benefits individuals with goals that don't necessarily end in a competition event.
