GU Energy Gel

$4.00


Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel packs energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximise carbohydrate absorption and use while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.

 

  • Rip open the top and squeeze the entire packet into your mouth – don't save half of it for later. GU Energy Gel's recipe of carbohydrates and amino acids was created to be taken in one shot to provide you with maximum benefits.
  • When you stop, go ahead and eat a pack of GU Energy Gel, even if it's been less than 30 minutes from your last shot of gel. Now that you've stopped exercising, your stomach can handle those calories and needs them to start restoring your muscle glycogen – essentially the body's instant fuel reservoirs.
  • The fructose converts quickly into an energy molecule that your muscles can tap within minutes. The maltodextrin, which makes up 70-80% of the carbohydrate blend (depending on flavor), takes several minutes longer. Because of this delay, your muscles enjoy a steady stream of energy instead of one gigantic sugar rush and a corresponding crash.
  • The gel thickens in cold weather so keep it close to your body to keep it warm in cold conditions
  • Kosher
  • While GU Energy Gel was designed for endurance sports, it can be used anytime you need energy to fuel a workout. It can also serve as a 100 calorie pick-me-up if you're dragging or simply need a snack to carry you through until your next meal.
