Endurox 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel Chocolate - 29 Grams
Pacific Health Laboratories 2nd Surge is the first all natural energy gel specifically formulated to provide rapid energy, reduce fatigue, and speed reaction time. Each gel contains 100mg of caffeine so you don't hit the wall. The proprietary formula of rapid-acting carbohydrate, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants gives you the added energy for a stronger finish. 2nd Surge contains a proprietary formula of rapidly acting carbohydrates, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants proven to:
Increase the delivery of critical nutrients
Maintain metabolic energy needs
Inhibit the release of fatigue signals in the brain
Reduce muscle damage
It is now well accepted that fatigue has two components, a muscle component and a brain component. Although it has been well established that caloric supplementation can improve muscle endurance, it is not known if consumption of the right combination of nutrients during exercise can reduce central or brain fatigue. In a study conducted by researchers at Montana State, cyclists consumed 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel and then completed two 70-minute trials during which central fatigue was assessed. Researchers found that 2nd Surge Energy Gel produced greater relative power during the trial and significantly improved reaction time by almost 5%.
Pacific Health Laboratories Questions & Answers
Are Pacific Health's 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 Pacific Health's Products? ACCELERADE, ACCELERADE HYDRO, and 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 Pacific Health's Products Wheat/Gluten Free? Pacific Health does not make gluten-free claims on any of their products, because Pacific Health's 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 Pacific Health's products free of corn and corn derivatives? No, Pacific Health's 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. Pacific Health's 2nd Surge and Endurox Excel does not contain Maltodextrin, so these products would be safe.
I am Lactose Intolerant; Can I Use Pacific Health's 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 Pacific Health's 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.
Are Pacific Health's Products Safe For Children Under The Age of 18? Yes, all of Pacific Health's products are safe for children. For basic hydration needs they recommend Accelerade or Accelerade Hydro. For advanced recovery needs, Pacific Health recommends Endurox R4. If Pacific Health's child weighs less than 120 lbs, they recommend reducing the serving of Endurox R4 to 1 scoop.

Chocolate – 20mg of caffeine
Raspberry Cream – 40mg of caffeine
Pacific Health's 2nd Surge flavors both have caffeine.
