GU Energy Gel 15 Serving Pouch
Many endurance athletes have moved towards more eco and training friendly solutions for energy gel by using a reusable flask for carrying and using gel. GU Energy no offers their fantastic Energy Gels in a 15 Serving Pouch that allows you to dispose of only on package, and with no worries about leaving or dropping trash on the road or trail. GU makes one of the best-tasting and most palatable energy gels on the market. Each GU gel provides a shot of 100 calories in the form of a patented carbohydrate blend (70-80% maltodextrin and 20-30% fructose) to deliver high-quality, easily-digested and long-lasting energy.
This gel can be used on it's own or with other supplements or small food items. Gels are quickly consumed and rapidly absorbed for the fastest physical response, making them ideal for short events, or as the sole energy soource in the last third of an endurance event, when you are likely at your max, and your body won't want to digest complex food products. Taking in 40-80 grams of carbohydrate per hour of exercise keeps your energy levels high so you can go for hours and hours and still feel strong. How you balance that is up to you, just know your needs and how your body responds by developing eating patterns while you train.
GU Energy Gel also includes electrolytes to ensure proper hydration, an antioxidant blend to stave off muscle tissue damage and branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage. GU Energy Gel comes in both caffeinated and non-caffeinated flavors. Strawberry Banana, Lemon Lime, Peanut Butter, and Root Beer do not have any caffeine in them. Mandarin Orange, Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Outrage, Triberry, Tastefully Nude, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Salted Watermelon all have 20mg of caffeine per packet. GU’s Espresso Love, Caramel Macchiato, and Jet Blackberry flavors have 40mg of caffeine.
