Product review: Bio-Synergy Essential Sports Fuel

September 18, 2015


The nice folks over at Bio-Synergy sent me a pack of strawberry flavour Essential Sports Fuel to try out. 

Over the years, I’ve tried quite a few different recovery options. My long runs in the build-up to the Paris Marathon ended with a pint of generically tropical flavour luminescent liquid; I’ve gulped down supermarket milkshakes after races; I’ve finished three-hour training runs to get home and cook up a four-egg omelette before even sitting down.

Like most powdered recovery drinks, Sports Fuel can be mixed with water or milk. I tried it with both. (Separately, not together – that would be weird.) It needs a really good stir, but it actually tastes like a good old-fashioned strawberry milkshake. It’s coloured with beetroot extract too, so lacks some of the synthetic garb that you might sometimes expect.

Sports Fuel is available in Strawberry or Chocolate flavours. Should you be in the mood for a full complement of nutrition, Bio-Synergy provides a sports-specific selection, for whether you’re interested in running, cycling, swimming, triathlon or even water sports (snarf).
