Marathon Des Sables 2013 using Herbalife24 Prolong by Ryan Liska

The 28th Marathon Des Sables took place in April and below is a video of what the competitors might expect. Marathon Des Sables is quoted as being the "toughest race on earth" The winner this year was Moroccan - Mohamad Ahansa.

Herbalife 24 Prolong was put to the test by Ryan Liska, his product testimonial is below.

"I just finished the Marathon Des Sables; a 6 day 150 mile foot race across the Sahara Desert. Aside from water rations, competitors are completely self-sufficient meaning if you want it, you carry it on your back from day 1, food, gear,everything. Proper nutrition is the key to success; the food you choose to carry has to give you the biggest “bang for your buck.” because pack weight is such an issue. Also, your appetite for solid food diminishes in temperatures of 120+ degrees. Herbalife Prolong was absolutely essential to my success. Prolong has a subtle taste, it isn’t chalky, and doesn’t make the consistency of your water “thicker” 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 was able to take in an appropriate amount of nutrition with no stomach issues, no cramps, and maintained high energy during each stage.The ability to take in proper nutrition left me feeling better and more recovered each morning. Prolong carried me through one of the toughest endurance running races on the planet and I will never race without it." Ryan Liska Ultra Marathon Endurance Athlete

This helps me to concentrate and focus on the biking, and not think about when to eat and how'. Kjell Kirkeng, Norway.

'Wow I love 24! Started on it 10 days ago as part of my Triathlon nutrition programme in preparation for a half Ironman on 25th Sept. Last Saturday had F1 sport at 06:00 swam for an hour had Prolong at 08:00 then raced 5k at 09:00 set a PB and won my age group, what more can I say?! Ian David Cyclist, UK

"On average, I run 35-40 miles per week and compete in various 5K, 10K, half/full marathons. I've found that using F1 Sport and Hydrate prior to my sessions, Prolong during and Rebuild Endurance post session have really made a significant difference in my performance and energy levels. As an example, I completed a 5K run earlier this week in just over 21 minutes, which was at least 30 seconds faster than any previous time I had recorded! What made it more remarkable was that after recording my time, I then proceeded to jog/run at my usual half-marathon pace for a further 5K! I believe that the quality and content of these products are fantastic and well able to fuel all levels of aerobic or strength workouts " Lee, UK
