REVIEW OF CLIF SHOT
Back To Top
The supplement I am reviewing is called Shot Energy Gel which is made by Clif Bar & Co., Berkeley, CA 94710 USA. To call toll free the number is conveniently 1-800-CLIFBAR.
The flavour for this review is RAZZ which I believe is short for raspberry. I had two issues with this product: it does not taste like raspberry rather it actually tasted so bad that I spit it out as soon as it touched my mouth and I will not ever try it again even if I mixed it with anything. Second, the litter leash does not work and what I mean is that with the product, it is very hard to rip off just the top and leave the leash attached. What I mean is that upon consumption, the gel is intended to be thrown away as one piece; unlike other products which tear into pieces and pieces.
With all the supplements out there, I have no need to stick to this one. I think a better alternative would be 5 Hour Energy or 6 Hour Power which is Stacker 2 Yellow Jacket that is manufactured by NVE Pharmaceuticals and is available via http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/nve/nv.htm.
Even if you are still brave enough to buy it, you have to find something to mix with it other than water unless you are disciplined to reduce the intensity of this awful flavour. Other flavours you can sample are chocolate, mocha, strawberry and vanilla.
I did a bit of research on the Internet and found that bikers who go on long distances will not do so without having a few of these to keep them going and the leash is very convenient for them.
According to one seller on eBay, this is some info regarding this product: it is a fast-acting simple-to-digest source of carbohydrates that are the preferred source of fuel during activity. Also, this supplement is the first energy gel on the market to go Organic. Each flavour uses at least 90% organic ingredients. This means that not only is it good for you but also for the planet.
Another eBay seller indicates the primary ingredient for this product is brown rice syrup which provides easily assimilated carbohydrates for working muscles. Both products also provide the mineral salts known as electrolytes. These electrolytes allow electrical impulses to travel properly throughout your body, permitting normal bodily function. When you sweat, you start to deplete your electrolyte stores and experience potential performance decline, so it's best to help replenish them through food and fluid intake.
Regarding pricing, the Shot Energy gel, when bought in bulk, is about half the price of a package of 5 Hour Energy and both have a similar effect. To order, please click on the following website: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/clif/shot.html. The other product I mentioned which was called 6 Hour Power is priced right in between the other two products so judge them accordingly.
Please save your cash and purchase Clif Shot Energy Gel via http://www.bodybuildingpro.com because their price is half the price you would find on eBay plus there is a lot better selection.
