SWEETS AND GELS CLIF SHOT BLOKS, £1.99 for six, www.clifbar.co.uk, AND ZIPVIT ENERGY


CHEWS, £1.99 per 60g packet, www.


zipvitsport.com. Both these products contain essential electrolytes and carbohydrates in a tasty form. “I find blocks and sweets more palatable and I like to eat them as well as gels and energy drinks. Zipvit sweets also contain vitamins and antioxidants.” – Fiona, Ed. Gels are vital for marathon runners, and will help you keep glycogen stores topped up. We love the newest gel on the market from Fuel Adventure, the cyclists turned nutritionists who opt for natural ingredients. MULE BAR KICKS


ENERGY GELS are made using only 100 percent organic and natural ingredients – and taste great. Organic brown rice syrup and agave nectar provide fuel, and Himalayan crystal salts replace electrolytes.

into your body. It is said to help you recover quickly, sleep well and repair damage to muscles. “It tastes

It gives you the power to recover quickly from intense exercise. The protein and carbohydrate-rich formula helps stop muscle fatigue, and maintain immune function efficiency
