I have been training for my half marathon recently and found that my energy level has really decreased after my mile 9 - 10. I've read online that a Gel or Gu product really help to boost one energy for long run; but since I have a sensitive stomach, I have to do a little research for the best product. I've found that this honey stinger has raves review on boosting the energy during long run. I've used it several times during my training and actually use it for my race during my 7 - 8 miles before I've become fatigue and I did great on my race. No stomach issue and I felt great after the race. I would definitely recommend this product for any long distance runner. - Evans P.
Honey Stinger Organic Gel is one of the most effective and best tasting gel we’ve ever tried.
Honey Stinger changed the game when they introduced these honey-based gels to endurance athletes, in large part due to the use of better ingredients (like organic tapioca syrup and organic honey) which provide two easily digestible sources of sugar.
It’s a great source of carbohydrate because it contains both glucose and fructose, allowing the body to absorb more at once without stomach distress and to better use them as fuel.
These gels have a thinner consistency than others, making them easy to eat, digest, and absorb during exercise. They are certified gluten-free, use organic tapioca syrup, organic honey, and added electrolytes for optimal fuel and fluid delivery during your workouts. They are also soy and dairy free.
Now offered in 5 flavors, including two with 32mg of caffeine, Honey Stinger Organic Gels offer a variety of options. Flavors vary in sweetness and intensity with Vanilla giving a lighter flavor, while Fruit Smoothie and Acai Pomegranate are sweeter and strong in flavor.

We recommend using these during exercise lasting more than 1 hour at a goal of 1-2 per hour to assist in proper fueling. Because they are great for fast absorbing energy, it’s best to use gels in conjunction with solid foods and plenty of fluids while on low intensity, longer exercise.
