Accelerade/AccelGel Review

So here we are on a Friday evening and I’m writing a sports product review. I’m telling you people I really know how to LIVE LARGE!

Anyhow, I was sent a complimentary jar of Accelerade and 2 packs of Accelgel – right about when I stopped running regularly. I did use the Accelerade for some bike rides and as a recovery drink from a couple of runs and I liked it. It tastes good, it didn’t make me sick and I think it really helped. In fact, it’s too bad I forgot about it these last 2 weeks because I am very sore from swimming so much and I believe that if I had consumed Accelerade regularly on returning from the pool I would feel better.

I did use the Accelgel during the Nike Half Marathon and I love it. It tastes good, goes down easy (no gagging and that is HUGE for me), gave me energy and did not make me sick.

I give the Accel products 2 thumbs up. If they don’t carry them at your local running/bike/swim/tri store you can get them here or here.

    Accelerade and Endurox 4 are very hard on your teeth… i learned that from my hand-washing bottle days…one of my goals for ’07 is to incorporate some way of reducing the sugar on my teeth… Accelerade just COATS them with stuff… chewing gum?LEMON Accelerade is my fav. it is a good product…

    I usually use power gels but might be worth a try for my marathon.

    Accelerate is good – just don’t use as a pre-race drink and expect to carry you through a marathon.
