GU Energy Gel

Stay on top of your game for longer with GU Energy gels and supplements! GU provides high-quality, long-lasting energy for athletes of all sports both in training and in competition.

The performance enhancing GU Energy Gel is optimised for athletes competing in distance competitions to have GU on the go, meaning there's no need to slow down throughout your events. Whether it is marathons, ironman competitions or adventure races which are your calling, GU provides the energy to help you become faster and stronger. GU Energy Gel contains all the required supplements which will not only provide you with energy for training and racing but that will also speed up your hydration and recovery process by restoring damaged muscles and tissues post training or racing.

In every GU Energy Gel you will be providing your body with:

  • Carbohydrates: GU provides 100 calories in a unique glucose-fructose ratio which has been shown to aid fast digestion.
  • Antioxidants: A full serving of Vitamin C and Vitamin E aid in fighting tissue breakdown which can occur from rigorous physical activity thereby reducing recovery time between training and racing.
  • Amino Acids: In order to optimise muscle protein synthesis and recovery a blend of amino acids has been incorporated into GU which also aids in maintaining mental focus.
  • Electrolytes: The sodium and potassium included in GU will replenish lost electrolytes and maintain hydration.
  • Caffeine: The addition of caffeine helps to keep the body alert and provides a (sometimes much needed!) boost of energy. Not all GU flavours contain caffeine.

For optimal results, GU Energy Gel should be consumed 15 minutes before activity and every 45 minutes thereafter throughout the duration of activity.

GU also offers a range of solid energy nutrition. To see more information on GU products, please click on the following link: Wildfire Sports & Trek - GU Energy
