Enervit- Hammer Gel

Has anyone else tried Enervit yet?, it's wonderful. Enervit is new to the US and has been popular in the European Peloton for some time. The electrolyte replacement, tastes good, (citrus), and has an ingredient list, (all good stuff) as long as your arm and even includes several vitamins. I don't like to ride without it now, I've been hooked, (for the first time). It comes in tablets ( to dissolve in your cheek) and powder (for the bottle).
I've only tried samples of both the energy supplement and the recovery drink once, and they seemed to work seemed to work very well, and they both tasted good, (citrus/orange).

I like to try something several times before I "pass judgment".

I've been using Hammer Gel for very successfully for some time and have several jugs of different flavors to use up before I experiment some more.

Ride Hardy,
Pat 5319

Sounds like you're on to something, Pat.

I don't afford those things yet, but I use O.J. Potassium (up to 14 times that of Powerade), Vitamin C (aids in rebuilding muscle tissue), and energy-producing fructose.

Yum!

Beats Coke anyday.
