ABOUT HÜMA GEL

Hüma makes 100% all-natural, great tasting energy gels powered by Ground Chia Seeds that are both vegan and gluten free.

Originally created by Ian McCollum and Kevin Sherbourne in 2012, after being inspired by the Tarahumara, a tribe of Mexican Indians who used Chia Seeds to power their 100+ mile journeys. Along with 100% real fruit and its smooth consistency, Hüma Gels are known for their great taste made from healthy ingredients that won’t leave you with an upset stomach.

In 2019, XMiles UK welcomed Hüma Gel to our family becoming Hüma Gel UK. XMiles is proud to represent the great tasting, all-natural gel powered by Chia Seeds across the UK.

WHAT MAKES HÜMA DIFFERENT?

Like all endurance energy gels, Hüma is a tool for glycogen supplementation.

When you exercise for more than 45 minutes, you run the risk of hypoglycaemic shock (also known as “bonking”). This occurs when your body runs out of its glycogen stores (energy). Hüma provides an alternative fuel source so your glycogen lasts longer and you can go further while enjoying the day.

Huma Chia Energy Gel

INSPIRED BY TRADITION.

We started with the ancient fuel of the Tarahumara Indians, ultra marathoners, and combined it with advanced sports nutrition research to bring you Hüma Gel.

WHY USE CHIA SEEDS?

Ian read about the Tarahumara, a Mexican Indian tribe during his time as a US Army Lieutenant in Iraq.

The tribe would use a special chia seed blend to fuel their epic 100+ mile races, which inspired him to make his own. The blend worked so well for him that he kept experimenting with it and created Hüma. Chia Seeds contain:

  • Omega-3's fatty acids which reduces inflammation.
  • A higher antioxidant profile than blueberries.
  • 1g of complete protein per gel.
  • 25% soluble fibre which absorbs water- this can help reduce hunger and regulate sugar absorption.
