GU Energy Gel is specifically formulated to energize your body during exercise. Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU 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 workout start to finish.

Energize:

A shot of fast-acting natural fructose (fruit sugar) goes straight to work building your energy levels back up while the maltodextrin is quickly absorbed and sent to your muscles. Vital electrolytes keep your blood chemistry in line and hydration levels stable. Calcium keeps your muscles humming and caffeine adds an extra kick to your power.

Sustain:

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. Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine, serve as another fuel source, aid in recovery and can improve mental performance and reduce fatigue by limiting the central nervous system’s production of serotonin. Histidine, an essential amino acid, acts alongside the citrates as a buffer that helps neutralize lactic acid build-up in muscles.

Recover:

Antioxidant vitamins C & E defend muscles from assault by free radicals. Chamomile works as an anti-inflammatory during and after exercise. Ginger soothes the stomach. Sea salt supplies a host of minerals.
Take one gel 15 minutes before training or competition and then one gel every 30-45 minutes during exercise.

I ride my bike for 20 miles when I go cycling. I take 1 half an hour before I ride and 45 minutes into the ride. I have enough energy to sustain the hour and 26 minutes it takes me to finish the ride ... and the salted caramel flavor is great!!

When I first tried this flavor I thought it was ok but after a few more it became a favorite! Now I order it regularly. I have these gels every 45 minutes or hour or so, depending on the intensity of the ride. It keeps my energy levels up without a sugar rush or "crash." And the packaging is very easy to open while riding, which is always important.

If you love salted caramel, which I certainly do, then you will love this. I think the taste is spot on and they are so good that I eat other Gu flavors first in order to save these.
