Re:fuel Gel by N8 Sports Nutrition – Product Review by Coach Gus Ghani
Energy gels are made for athletes who need energy on the move, and gels are the best way to refuel during extended workouts and training such as during long distance running or cycling. Therefore, gels must be easy to swallow and light to carry, while still providing a sufficient energy source.
I am excited to give you my thoughts on a new energy gel which is also a Malaysian product. Given that the majority of the sports energy gel consumed by Malaysian athletes are imported, I wondered if our local “Re:fuel” High Performance Energy Gel from N8 Sports Nutrition can match their popular foreign competitors in taste, as well as performance.
Pre, During & Post Workout Booster
A 50g packet of RE:FUEL contains 100 Calories, 50mg of Caffeine, 25g of Carbohydrates, and 40mg of sodium.
RE:FUEL is categorised as a Food Supplement, and made in a GMP certified facility (Good Manufacturing Practice).
It only comes in Green Apple flavour and for instant energy, just take one gel every 45-50 minutes of activity.
After testing several packets during running and cycling conditions, I am giving this home based gel TOP MARKS because…
- RE:FUEL gives me a subtle instant energy boost without sending my heart rate through the roof.
- The portion size is substantial, and yet it is easy to ingest and digest as the gel texture is smooth enough to consume without requiring water to wash it down.
- I like the refreshingly delicious taste of the Green Apple flavour, unlike other gels which are sickly sweet, too diluted or taste like medicine.
- You are not forced to finish all the gel in one go as there is a screw top cover which allows you to reseal the gel packet. This is a really useful feature for those runners who want to consume smaller portions at a time, spread over a longer period. Moreover, the screw top cover makes it easier to consume the gel without wastage or getting your fingers sticky as in the case of the more common tearaway gel sachets.
My Final Verdict
In terms of performance, taste and packaging, I can proudly say that this Malaysian Product has smashed the other overseas gel brands out of the park, and I can finally say that I have found a gel that suits me down to the ground, after many years of experimenting with other imported gels which were too sweet, too sticky, too little, and even too pricey.
