PacificHealth Laboratories Launches 2nd Surge™, the "No Bonk" Gel

MATAWAN, NJ--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Bonking. Hitting the wall. Blowing up. Whatever it's called, every serious athlete has experienced extreme fatigue. Researchers have discovered that there are two centers of fatigue in the body: one located in muscles and the other in the brain. PacificHealth Laboratories Inc. (OTCQB: PHLI), a nutrition technology company located in Matawan, NJ, announced today the introduction of 2nd Surge™ Ultra Energy Gel, the first all-natural product specifically formulated to delay the onset of both muscle and brain fatigue.

The product's proprietary formula contains rapidly acting carbohydrates, specific proteins, caffeine and selected antioxidants that 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 the release of fatigue signals

Fred Duffner, President and CEO of PacificHealth Laboratories, said, "Most endurance athletes tend to struggle in the second half of their race or workout. Unlike traditional energy gels, which focus on the muscles, 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel will supply athletes' muscle and brain cells with the additional fuel for a stronger finish. The response to date by our retailers to this cutting edge product has been extraordinary. It will be sold by Performance Bike, Road Runner Sports, Academy Sports, and over 100 of the largest, most influential independent sports specialty retailers."

2nd Surge comes in two flavors, Double Expresso and Chocolate, and is packaged 8 to a carton. To purchase or learn more about the science of 2nd Surge, visit
