Gu Energy Gel 24 Pack

24 pack of Gu energy gel, the world's first energy gel. Gu gels are based on a blend of simple and complex carbohydrates to deliver easily digested and long lasting energy along with electrolytes to help maintain hydration levels. To aid recovery gu gels also contain the antioxidant vitamins C & E, chamomile which works as an anti inflammatory during and after exercise, ginger to sooth the stomach and a host or minerals derived from sea salt.

Recommended Usage

For training GU recommend taking one gel sachet 15 minutes before followed by another sachet every 30-45 minutes depending on exercise intensity. For racing GU recommend eating one sachet 45 minutes before the start, another one sachet 15 minutes before the start and then one GU sachet every 30 to 45 minutes during the race. You should also ensure you hydrate along the way.

As the caffeine content of the flavours vary you can customise you caffeine intake by varying the flavours you use. Caffeine flavours are great before short intense exercise whereas for longer endurance events you may want to start off using non caffeine flavours and switch to caffeine flavours later in your event when you need an extra boost. We all react slightly differently to caffeine so it's best to experiment in training and find out what works best for you.

Flavours

Available in Chocolate Ourage, Espresso Love, Jet Blackberry, Lemon Sublime, Mandarin Orange, Mint Chocolate, Strawberry Banana, Tri Berry or Vanilla Bean or select the Mixed option and get a mixed flavour pack.

Chocolate Outrage, Mandarin Orange, Tri Berry and Vanilla Bean flavours contain 20mg caffeine per sachet whilst the Jet Blackberry and Expresso flavour has a double caffeine shot of 40mg. The Mint Chocolate flavour has a small trace of caffeine from the dark chocolate which equates to around 4mg per sachet whereas all the other flavours are caffeine free.

Press Reviews

220 Triathlon

What a rare treat! These great tasting gels from GU offer flavour, nutritional options and a unique stance in terms of viscosity. Instead of following the more liquid trend, they actually move closer to the texture of a mildly melted chew with all the flavours being perfectably palatable. This makes it easier to simultaneously breathe and eat compared to standard gels, even more so with a water chaser, and they permit a good fuel hit. Across the options there's a consistent slug of 25g carbohydrate that you'll need to consider when calculating your dose. In terms of specific nutrition with regards to performance, the various options permit you to choose from between 40-55mg of sodium, 35-45mg of patassium, a generous helping of antioxidants, and single or double hits of caffeine""

Verdict - 84% - Great options: highly flavoured so may need tummy familiarisation.
