If I added powdered fiber to my surge after a workout would it lesses its postworkout effects?


Fiber reduces glycemic index, which is what Surge is all about!

Not to mention I bet it would make it taste like crap!

In other words, don’t do it!


it would lower the GI thus slow down the absorption rate of the stuff and render it less effective so no i wouldnt add the fiber

Adding fiber to a Surge-type beverage goes entirely against the grain of why it was even invented in the first place.



Yes. You want to take advantage of the malto’s high glycemic index value for PWO glycogen replenishment. Fiber blunts this effect. Fiber also decreases the absorbtion of vitamins and minerals buy acting like a sponge in the intestine.
