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 maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization 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.
ELECTROLYTES Maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration. GU gels contain 50mg sodium per serving to keep your blood chemistry in line and hydration levels stable.
CARBOHYDRATES Deliver ready-to-use energy and delay bonking by sparing glycogen. Complex carbs in the form of maltodextrin (70-80% of the complex/simple carbohydrates blend) help you maintain glucose levels over time. Citrates (potassium citrate, sodium citrate and citric acid) help speed the conversion of these carbs into energy molecules and mitigate performance-sapping acid build-up in muscles.
450MG AMINO ACIDS Reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
20MG CAFFEINE* Enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort during exercise.
*Only for Chocolate Outrage, Mandarin Orange and Tri-Berry flavors.
Consume one packet 5 minutes before, and one packet every 45 minutes during activity.
Wash down with your favorite GU Hydration Drink or water for optimum absorption.
