GU Energy Gel - Espresso Love
All about this product
Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel packs energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
Espresso Love is the ideal flavor for a busy athlete. This flavor will remind you of a bold, rich, dark-roasted cup of joe, so good you might just sip on the gel like it’s a lazy Saturday morning. Plus, with 40mg of caffeine, it’s perfect for those early morning workouts. Love is in the name, and it’s also in the recipe, because one of GU six core values is love.
