  • Caffeine and Protein for the Win:2nd SurgeĀ® was developed to help endurance athletes meet the energy demands and overcome the fatigue of sustained endurance events. The scientists at PacificHealth labs started with a blend of carbohydrates, added protein for smooth and sustained energy uptake and finally added 100 mg of caffeine to help you stay focused. By way of reference, 100 mg of caffeine is equivalent to about one cup of coffee. As one marathoner/reviewer wrote, "a solid, very delicious, and functional product." * See our Product Performance Claims Disclosure below.

Bonking.  Hitting the wall.  Blowing up.  What causes extreme fatigue?  Researchers have identified two fatigue centers; one in the brain, the other in the muscles.  2nd Surge® is the only energy gel specifically formulated to delay the onset of both muscle and brain fatigue.  The proprietary blend of 3 forms of carbohydrates, protein, caffeine, and antioxidants are proven to: 


  • Increase the delivery of critical nutrients to brain and muscle cells
  • Maintain metabolic energy needs
  • Inhibit the release of fatigue signals in the brain
  • Reduce muscle damage, an important trigger for release of fatigue signals

Available in:

  • Chocolate (100mg of caffeine)
  • Double Expresso (100mg of caffeine)

Extra energy to get the work done
Have used this both during races and while training for full IMs. Gives you the last little kick you need to reach the finish line along with carbs. Have also used as a pick-me-up for a late game or training session. Might not fall asleep right away, but helps my performance when I need to get the work done. Better than a Redbull for instant energy.

I got a couple 2nd Surge in a sample pack so I gave it a try (however it felt like I was cheating on my Accel Gel). I was extremely happy with the results. As per all things PHL it's not thick so it's easy to take. More importantly my body responded very well in my long runs and now I use a combination of Accel gel early in LONG runs and later the 2nd Surge has that extra punch.
