    GU Energy Gel is specifically formulated to energize your body during exercise. Using GU energy gel during your training will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. It gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress, is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great training session from start to finish, whether it's running, cycling, swimming , or at the gym. GU contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles plus a small amount of fructose for efficient liver glycogen replenishment. This provides the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

    Salted Caramel, Salted Watermelon, and Chocolate Peanut Butter contain more cramp busting electrolytes with 125mg Sodium per sachet.

    GU ENERGY GEL BENEFITS:

    During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.

    By simply adding GU to your normal workout routine - one packet 15 minutes before starting then one packet every 45 minutes or so - you will feel strong and energized, be able to maintain your effort throughout the workout, feel better when you finish, and recover quickly for your next workout. If you want to have a good workout you have to supply your body with the right fuel - GU Energy Gel.

    How to Use GU Energy Gel

    Follow these three simple steps to maximize your athletic performance:
    1. Top off your energy stores by taking one packet of GU 15 minutes before exercise, preferably on an empty stomach for fastest absorption.

    2. For sustained energy consume one packet of GU every 35-45 minutes during exercise, washing it down with a few mouthfuls of water or GU2O hydration drink to speed absorption.

    3. Speed recovery and reduce post-exercise fatigue by eating one packet of GU within 30 minutes of finishing your workout. This takes advantage of the post-exercise time window when your body replenishes lost glycogen most efficiently.

    GU Energy Gel Ingredients:

    Carbohydrates:
    Carbohydrates provide the quick, sustained energy source in GU. 85% are complex carbohydrates from maltodextrin and 15% are simple carbohydrates from fructose.

    Amino Acids:
    Leucine and Valine are two vital amino acids in GU that help maintain muscle protein and aid with recovery.

    Antioxidants:
    Vitamins C and E are important antioxidants in GU. They help protect against tissue damage from free radicals, which are produced by the muscle's burning of oxygen. GU contains 100% RDI of vitamins C & E in each packet to protect your tissues, help reduce soreness and aid with recovery.

    Muscle Buffers:
    Histidine, another amino acid in GU, buffers against lactic acid buildup in your muscles. This helps alleviate muscle fatigue while exercising and soreness during recovery. GU is the only gel that contains histidine.

    Herbal Blend:
    GU's unique herbal blend combines the perfect fusion of herbs for energy-enhancement (cola-nut), anti-inflammatory (chamomile), and stomach buffering (ginger).

    Caffeine:
    Espresso Love contains an added jolt of 40 mg of caffeine, while Strawberry Banana and Lemon Sublime have none at all. All other flavors contain 20mg (equivalent to 1/5 cup of coffee) per serving from cola-nut. The caffeine level in GU is not enough to give a "caffeine rush," but is added to help you utilize body fat as an additional fuel source during activity.
