We first created our original gel packets for ultra-trail runners pushing the boundaries of the sport, but over 25 years later, our Energy Gels are just as crucial for someone running their first 10km as they are for world champion triathletes, cyclists and runners.
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.
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.
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.
