GU Energy Gels are crafted to supply energy and key nutrients, such as electrolytes and amino acids, to keep you feeling strong and energized during activites. The precise blend of complex and simple carbohydrates deliver easy-to-digest calories for immediate and sustained energy. The sodium helps to promote hydration by maintaining water balance and optimizing nutrient delivery. While the amino acids help decrease muscle damage and reduce mental fatigue.
The body has a limited carbohydrate supply, but not enough to sustain high intensity activity for a long period of time. Thus, as you deplete your bodies carb supply, performance tends to suffer. Consuming energy in the form of carbohydrates helps you sustain your effort during long activites.

GU Energy was founded in 1991, and it started because Dr. Vaughan felt compelled to create an energy gel to help his daughter, an ultra-marathon runner, reach her peak performance. Dr. Vaughan’s revolutionary energy gel created an alternative food that housed only the critical carbohydrates for energy and essential amino acids for muscles support.
This gooey miracle food, which the body can absorb in seconds, was aptly named GU Energy Gel. Fast forward to today, and GU Energy creates various sports nutrition products that help aid performance and recovery.
