:GO FAR Endurance Fuel - Orange

Product Review (submitted on January 10, 2017):
Go Far is an apposite alternative to the miasma of nutrition tinctures on the market. Many contain gratuitous ingredients and use disingenuous information to make concerned cyclists believe that they will gain that extra edge with a crucial chemical supplement, or that they’ll be dropped ignominiously without it, or bonk horribly, or be surpassed by others taking advantage of these mysterious unguents. In contrast, Go Far is formulated according to scientific research on what ingredients are optimal to sustain energy, replenish glycogen, and facilitate absorption without causing gastric distress. Go Far thus includes a concatenation of simple and complex carbohydrates, electrolytes, and protein. The formula is isotonic and ensures that one rides with a formula with appropriate osmolality – something entirely absent from other products, where one would have to hazard a guess about the osmolality or whip out a calculator and scour the internet for information that would enable one to determine whether the milliosmoles were appropriately calculated for ideal absorption and gastric distress avoidance. No, this isn’t bunk. The intestines can only absorb so much at a given time, and excess carbs can cause serious intestinal cramping (or worse), while a paucity of carbs may leave one underfueled. Having ridden over 150 centuries with Go Far, I can attest how well the product works. (And it isn’t an immiscible, goopy milkshake like a few others.) And aside from that, the customizable formulae allow one to adjust the level of carbs, protein, electrolytes, caffeine, and flavor according to one’s own needs and preferences. Experience shows how much these can vary between individuals. Some people lose salt more rapidly. Others prefer more caffeine for shorter rides but want less when imbibing over the course of a long, epic ride. Some people’s systems are more sensitive to carb solutions and need to adjust the levels. Customization is a unique and amazing option. Finally, the flavor options keep one refreshed, so that one may opt for variations of cranberry, fruit punch, lemon lime, or salted caramel instead of becoming sick from the same, tired, stultifying flavors….
