GU Energy Gels are crafted to supply both energy and key nutrients like electrolytes and amino acids to keep you feeling strong and energized. The precise blend of complex and simple carbohydrates will fuel you up, so you feel good, longer. The huge variety of delicious flavors will save you from flavor fatigue, so you can stick to your nutrition plan and keep going. Eat one Energy Gel every 30-45 minutes while exercising.
The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximise carbohydrate absorption and utilisation while ultimately reducing stomach distress.
Containing sodium, the main electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may help reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage. Watch the video below for a further insight into the GU Energy Gel 👇

How should you use GU Energy Gel to help aid recovery?
Eat a pack of Gu Energy Gel when you have stopped exercising, this will allow your stomach and body to restore muscle glycogen - essentially the body’s instant fuel reservoirs.
How long does GU Energy Gel Take to Work?
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.
Do GU Energy Gel contain caffeine and how does this help?
GU Energy Gel comes in both caffeinated and non-caffeinated flavours. Please check the Nutritional Information below to see if specific flavours contain caffeine. Caffeine consumption sharpens focus and perks you up; but more importantly, it helps the body produce more power, reduce the pain of hard efforts, and may even tap fat for fuel during exercise.
