Introducing our new 15-Serving GU Energy Gel pouches. We’ve ‘bulked up’ our proven Energy Gels into a larger serving size to give you, our athletes, more ways to fuel during your extreme efforts or long-duration activities. Loose trash and sticky pockets are hard to avoid when you’re out on the trail or road for hours and hours. That’s why we partnered with Hydrapak to create a custom 5-serving flask and nozzle designed specifically for GU energy gels. Our Flask makes it easy to carry the fuel you need while reducing trail-litter along the way. Less-mess, less-litter, more Energy Gel!
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.
How should you use GU energy Gel to help you recover from hard training or racing?
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.
Directions: 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.
