PACIFIC HEALTH LABS® 2ND SURGE ULTRA ENERGY GEL 8 pack :: No room for an energy bar and no time to stop for coffee? Take it in fast and light with the Pacific Health Labs® 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel, complete with protein, carbs, antioxidants, and a hit of caffeine.
Features & Benefits:
Proprietary Blend of fast acting carbohydrates: Increase delivery of critical nutrients
Protein: Maintain Metabolic energy needs
Caffeine: Inhibit release of fatigue signals to the brain
Have run five half marathons using these gels. Finished all four strong and happy. Three previous halfs were finished, but they were struggles. My favorite use for these is in endurance running, though I have used them as a pick me up after work to motivate me to squeeze that workout in. My recovery time is a few days rather than the week I had been experiencing. Some of this is due to training, but I firmly believe these gels deliver exactly what is needed for endurance if taken approptiately. That is, train for exhaustion. Once you muscles have become accustom to using glycogen stores, these gels become appropriate.

Definitely the best!
I use 2nd Surge when I race. I take one packet before my race and depending on the distance, I will have another packet with me to get a boost if my energy level drops. It works...period! You feel/regain energy without feeling jittery. The consistency is thinner than most gels or Gu so it's easier to take, especially during a race. Plus, it tastes good (chocolate). I have not tried the Espresso flavor yet. The chocolate works fine for me.
I don't take it every day as I don't want my body getting used to it, thus reducing its effectiveness. The only drawback is that it is a little pricey.

An Excellent Energy Gel!
Was not able to use energy gels before discovering 2nd Surge. Other gels upset my stomach, but 2nd Surge works well for me. The gel features a blend of carbs and protein, which sets it apart from many energy gels. The chocolate flavor is excellent, and I am even able to take the gel without having water immediately available. This was a missing piece of my distance running. 2nd Surge has freed me from trying to get jelly beans or juggling other forms of energy while continuing to run. Highly recommended!

Possibly the best performance Gel
This 2nd Surge gel is the real deal!
I took the gel 1hour into a 1hr 45min training run on the weekend. Even without water to wash this through I found the taste and consistency perfect. It gave me a real surge over the last 45 mins, I could have gone further for sure.
This was a good 20% longer training run than I have been doing & I felt strong over the last 10 minutes.
I am really looking forward to my half marathon in 2 weeks time armed with 2nd Surge Chocolate caffeine gel. Thanks to PacificHealth Labs.
Best and purest on the market!
I use these gels mostly for distance running and they fit the bill. They allow me to remain active longer, give me a boost when I need it, and aid in recovery. I use the Double Espresso ones and really enjoy the taste. The thing I like most about this product are the ingredients. They are the purest I have found in any energy gel. That combined with the caffeine, carbs, and a smidge of protein are just what my body needs. After trying a number of disgusting tasting gels, these are a clear winner.
Used this during my long run days. Makes my stomach feel "semi-full" and not full of air. I get a boost of caffeine and do feel like my energy goes up a little bit. However, it's too light for me. I find the blocks make my stomach feel less empty after 10 miles.

Does give an extra surge as promised
This product did give a super energy surge during my workout. It tastes great. It was a little more liquidy and less gel-like but that's fine. I'll probably only use this product for a while.

I found this at the WSSC and have been using it ever since. I definitely recommend giving it a try. It is the only during exercise fuel that tries to address the "runner's brain" issue.
I really love the consistency of this gel, it is thin and easy to swallow. It also doesn't make me instantly sick like GU brand. I usually use the regular accel gel, but do like the extra caffeine of 2nd surge.
Best Gels ever
I will use one of these about 5 miles or so to get added energy after about 10 minutes of taking. Very easy to take, just like Hershey's Syrup.
Lake Stevens, Wa
Works for me!
Tasted a little chalky, perhaps, but then I'm always wishing for fine "artisan" chocolate. Went down easily, stayed down, and definitely gave me a boost!
Santa Fe, NM
2nd Surge lives up to its name. During my hill run it gave me the added boost I like to keep me going strong. The chocolate is delicious and has 100 mg caffeine.
Best Gel I've ever tried!!
I've tried many gels and this product sets well with me and doesn't upset my stomach before or during workouts. Flavor (Chocolate) is excellent.
Best Gel on the Market Today!
With 100mg of caffeine you really feel a jolt of energy. Used this as my second "during long run" gel at around mile 8 of 14 and it was incredible!
I love this Gel
I love this gel because it goes down so easy, it is almost like Chocolate Hershey's Syrup, not thick & disgusting, it doesn't make me want to gag.
Lake Stevens, Wa
Tastes great and works!
Taste was great-I tried expresso
did not upset stomach
I used it on my long runs-15-20 miles- in place of GU and it was fine
best there is
After a few years this is the best researched product out there. Even better is it has a very thin consistency and goes down easy.
salt lake city, ut
this stuff is GREAT easy on the stomach and really gives you what you need to finish strong, now they need to make it also w/o caffeine
Great flavor & boost
Finally a gel that is easy to swallow; most gels are so difficult to tolerate, this one is quite good
Wifey swears by it!
I personally don't use it but my wife won't race with anything else.

I would buy again
