CREATED FOR ANYONE THAT MOVES
We first created our original gel packets for ultra-trail runners pushing the boundaries of the sport, but over 30 years later, our Energy Gels are just as beneficial for someone working out at the gym or running their first 10k as they are for world champion triathletes, cyclists, and runners.
GO WITH THE ORIGINAL
What you eat fuels you. But not all food is right for every effort, and that’s why we invented the original energy gel.
When you’re working out, your body needs easily digestible energy to keep you feeling good and performing at your best. In short, your body needs a source of carbohydrates to burn.
KNOW YOUR FUEL TANK
Yes, your body will store fuel from your daily diet that you can convert to energy during shorter and low-intensity activities, but if you’re working out hard or for longer than 45 minutes, you will run out of available fuel… eventually leading you to the dreaded energy bonk.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
The ingredients you need in a tasty, portable, and easy-to-digest form – that’s our Energy Gel. It sounds simple, and it is for you. GU Energy Gels provide portable and easy-to-digest calories from carbohydrates that deliver immediate and sustained energy while reducing risk of stomach distress.
You can trust us to do the hard work, the research, the testing, and the recipe building to deliver you fuel for your athletic pursuits… whether it’s your first 5k or a century ride.
EATING IS TRAINING
The average body can digest roughly 120-240 calories per hour during exercise. The more you eat, the more your body diverts blood from your muscles to the gut to process food and calories. If your metabolism is slower, then one Energy Gel every 45 minutes works just fine. If you have a faster metabolism, try upping your intake to one Energy Gel every 30 minutes. It's essential to practice and test your nutrition plan to find out what works best for you.
