Liquid energy with portable and fast-absorbing carbohydrates, this great tasting energy source also includes electrolytes for optimal hydration, amino acids to reduce muscle breakdown and caffeine in some flavours for increased focus.
How should you use GU Liquid Energy to help you recover from hard training or racing?
When you stop, go ahead and eat a pack, even if it’s been less than 30 minutes from your last shot. 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.
How long does GU Liquid Energy 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 flavour), 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.
Directions: Rip open the top and squeeze the entire packet into your mouth—don’t save half of it for later (it’ll get messy). The recipe of electrolytes, carbohydrates and amino acids was created to be taken in one shot to provide you with maximum benefits.
