Gastrointestinal (GI) problems are probably the second most encountered complaint after dehydration.  However, gastrointestinal distress can potentially be terribly debilitating, and, despite months of training, can completely destroy your race day performance. Herbalife 24 Prolong has helped a an ultra running athlete complete the event.

Herbalife Prolong was absolutely essential to my success in the desert and I would never go back without it. Prolong doesn’t have much taste and it isn’t chalky so it’s an easy way to take in calories and you barely notice you’re doing it. Other competitors found their products from other companies hard to stomach out there. I felt like I was simply drinking water from my bottles, yet every bottle contained 250 calories with 58 grams of consistent carbohydrates and over 850 milligrams of electrolytes. I never felt too full or bloated, I did not cramp, and I had consistent energy while running through each stage – even the long stage that took 15 hours of running through rock and soft sand. When you are able to take in calories for energy your body uses less of its natural stores and breaks down less which left me feeling better and more recovered each morning of the race. I carried my Prolong in a Ziploc bag; it was lightweight and easy to drop 2 scoops into my bottles at check points during the race. Prolong carried me through one of the toughest endurance running races on the planet and I will never race without it ” Ryan Lisk
