Established over 50 years ago by Italian pharmacist Paolo Sorbini, Enervit is a literal legend in the European endurance sport’s nutrition scene. Over the decades, they’ve aligned with some of the world’s most incredible athletes and teams such as renowned triathlete Alex Zanardi and claiming the official nutrition partnership of IRONMAN.
Their most recent accomplishment is the signing of a 3-year deal with Pro Cycling Team UAE Team Emirates. The current TDF leader, Tadej Pogocar, is a HUGE fan.
Aside from rubbing elbows with the best of the best in endurance sports, Enervit is serious about the science of functional nutrition and helping athletes be better, stronger, leaner, and faster through sports nutrition that’s grounded in science with no hyped-up claims.
Why do I want them?
A carbohydrate-based product for endurance athletes. It’s a source of thiamine and contributes to energy yielding metabolism during intense physical activity.
As a liquid gel, this product has a unique consistency, landing in between a solid gel and an energy drink. It’s quite versatile to use and the pouch is resealable so you can take sips as needed. Easy to swallow and digest. Good energy boost and nice dose of caffeine. Good to take during training to prevent bonking.
This product does contain caffeine, so it will affect athletes differently. For big coffee drinkers, taking two pouches in a row did not cause any issues. If you’re caffeine sensitive, take it slow and see how you do.
The liquidy-ness of the gel makes it easy to take without losing power, so it’s great for time trials. However, the screw cap might not be ideal during competition as messing with it could slow you down. During a nice long ride or run it’s great because you can take half the product and save the other half for later.
