The Science Behind Accel Gel
The superiority of Accel Gel over GU, the leading energy gel, was shown in a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. James Madison University researchers found that Accel Gel offers a significant advantages in improving endurance and significantly reducing post-exercise muscle damage.
The proven benefits of Accel Gel have been demonstrated in other activities including swimming, downhill skiing, and mountain climbing. In a study conducted with collegiate swimmers researchers found that during repetitive sprints Accel Gel maintained and even increased swimming velocity. In a study with competitive skiers, researchers found that Accel Gel increased training volume and lowered ratings of perceived exertion (RPE).
In the first study ever conducted with climbers, researchers found that, compared to a conventional carbohydrate sports drink, Accel Gel reduced muscle damage by 57%. These three studies involving very different exercise activities demonstrate that Accel Gel, with its unique formula, plays an important role in maintaining or increasing exercise performance by extending endurance and reducing muscle damage.
Pacific Health Questions & Answers
Are Their Products Kosher?
ACCELERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ENDUROX R4 have OUD Kosher certification. ACCEL GEL, ENDUROX EXCEL, 2nd SURGE, and ACCEL RECOVER are not Kosher.
What Allergens are Present in Your Products?
ACCELERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ENDUROX R4, contain milk and soy. ACCEL GEL contains milk. Each of these products are manufactured in a facility that processes eggs, wheat, tree nuts, fish, crustaceans and shellfish products.
Are Their Products Wheat/Gluten Free?
They do not make gluten-free claims on any of their products, because their products are not manufactured on allergen-free production lines. Their recommendation, if you have a gluten sensitive allergy, would be to check with your physician for guidance.
I have a corn allergy, are any of their products free of corn and corn derivatives?
No, their products are not free of corn and corn derivatives. Maltodextrin, which is in Accelerade, Hydro, Accel Gel, Endurox R4, and Accel Recover, is made from corn. Their 2nd Surge and Endurox Excel does not contain Maltodextrin, so these products would be safe.
I am Lactose Intolerant; Can I Use Their Products?
The source of protein used in ACCLERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, ACCEL GEL and ENDUROX R4 is all natural whey protein from milk and this protein source does carry a residual amount of lactose in the finished product. The maximum lactose content is < 2%, which may not be of concern to the vast majority of individuals who are lactose intolerant. However, if there is concern due to allergy or lactose intolerance they recommend consulting your physician.
I have Type II diabetes, is this a safe workout drink?
All of their products are safe for people who have type II diabetes as long as you are exercising within a short time of consuming the product. Exercise will result in a faster transport of carbohydrate (sugar) into the muscle.
