GU Energy Gel Details

GU is a convenient, great tasting carbohydrate gel formulated to energize before, sustain during, and aid in recovery after training and competitions. Made with a unique blend of ingredients, GU provides: complex carbohydrates for sustained energy, amino acids to maintain muscle protein, antioxidants and muscle buffers to aid with recovery and GU's patented herbal blend for enhanced energy production. GU helps you feel and perform your best.

During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.

GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

GU Energy Gel Ingredients

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates provide the quick, sustained energy source in GU. 85% are complex carbohydrates from maltodextrin and 15% are simple carbohydrates from fructose.

Amino Acids

Leucine and Valine are two vital amino acids in GU that help maintain muscle protein and aid with recovery.

Antioxidants

Vitamins C and E are important antioxidants in GU. They help protect against tissue damage from free radicals, which are produced by the muscle's burning of oxygen. GU contains 100% RDI of vitamins C & E in each packet to protect your tissues, help reduce soreness and aid with recovery.

Muscle Buffers

Histidine, another amino acid in GU, buffers against lactic acid buildup in your muscles. This helps alleviate muscle fatigue while exercising and soreness during recovery. GU is the only gel that contains histidine.

Herbal Blend

GU's unique herbal blend combines the perfect fusion of herbs for energy-enhancement (cola-nut), anti-inflammatory (chamomile), and stomach buffering (ginger).

Caffeine

Espresso Love contains an added jolt of 40 mg of caffeine, while Strawberry Banana and Lemon Sublime have none at all. All other flavors contain 20 mg (equivalent to 1/5 cup of coffee) per serving from cola-nut. The caffeine level in GU is not enough to give a "caffeine rush," but is added to help you utilize body fat as an additional fuel source during activity.
