Usage

For Optimal Results, Drink 20-30 Oz. Of Electrolyte-Infused Brew Per Hour During Activity

Human Physiology 101 - Water is a great way to hydrate, right? Well, yes and no. Water of course has the fluid you need because that's what it is - just fluid. Problem is once you start training and racing and drinking lots of water, your body starts using some of that fluid (in muscle contractions and for cooling for example) and gets rid of the rest through a few different mechanisms such as urination because it is just water - the body can store and use only so much pure water. Therein lies the problem - the more straight water you drink the more you lose - a self defeating endeavor if there ever was one. But you're supposed to retain that water to "stay hydrated", right?! What gives?

That's where electrolytes such as sodium and potassium come in -by their very nature they help your body retain the fluid it needs to function properly. That's why drinks with electrolytes are so important for proper hydration - they act as a catalyst to help your body retain fluid necessary for muscles to work properly so you don't lose all that valuable fluid. That's why you need Brew Electrolyte Tablets- because they are fortified with a unique blend of electrolytes, the tablets are a better form of hydrating than water alone. So where you may typically grab a bottle of just water, try Brew Tablets to retain the fluid you need to stay hydrated.

During extended training or racing, Electrolyte Tablets offer a convenient and fast way to enrich straight water (when Electrolyte Brew or an alternative may not be readily available). Ultimately the Brew Electrolyte Tablets are another offering from GU that help athlete’s keep variety in their sports nutrition regimes. Using them with other GU products such as GU Chomps is as simple as swapping them for Electrolyte Brew – an athlete should account for the lower calorie intake and possibly add an extra GU Energy Gel, Roctane or a Serving of Chomps (all roughly 100 calories).

    Overview
    Posted by Kyle on 4/3/2014
    There are a lot of times I find myself using these and the convenience is great. All you really do is drop them in your bottle, give it a few seconds and boom, you've got an electrolyte drink ready to go. Now it doesn't have the calories like most drinks which is why I use them more in a recovery/pre-loading manner as opposed to race day nutrition. I like that I can leave a tube of these in my desk and drop one in on days when I'm already carrying loads of gear for AM and PM workouts. The flavors are nice and light (I like Peach Tea best) and the drink itself doesn't feel heavy or sugary. Obviously. Only downside is the price, IMO.
  • Peach Tea, yes please!

    This is great for those long, hot days when straight up water is not enough and you need extra minerals to help retain and replace electrolytes. This has a very nice, light flavor and really keeps me going.

    I especially like the tabs for runs under an hour when I don't need the calories, but still want the electrolytes. The taste is refreshing and light, not syrupy at all.

    I like to use these during my hot training rides, and as a post-run/workout drink to replenish my electrolytes. I love the Peach Tea and Strawberry Lemonade flavors. I am encouraged to drink more on hot days than I otherwise would with strict water.

    These tablets along with gu energy gel ensure that cramping and energy levels will be a non-issue. I am an ultra runner and have used this product religiously and cannot say enough about it.

    I use these on the run. It tastes much better than the Nuun.. and my stomach seems to handle it better. Best for long runs or when you need extra hydration during the summer.
