WHAT IS LIQUID ENERGY GEL AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM ORIGINAL ENERGY GEL?
GU Liquid Energy Gel is a deliciously drinkable, portable source of easily-digestible carbohydrates, electrolytes, amino acids, and (in some flavors) caffeine developed to help you perform better, for longer and avoid the dreaded “bonk.” It provides an additional way to keep you fueled during your activity of choice. The main differences between Liquid Energy and the original GU Energy Gel are:
1) Consistency: Somewhere between a juice box and a gel, GU Liquid Energy is the GU you can GUlp. As the name implies, it’s a more liquid version of our Energy Gel.
2) Size: Weighing in at just over two ounces (60 g) instead of one, GU Liquid Energy is a larger serving size and packet than our Original Energy Gel. (Don’t worry, it’s still pocket-compatible!)
WHEN SHOULD YOU USE LIQUID ENERGY GEL?
Perfect for those “I just rolled out of bed and am heading out the door, but don’t feel like eating” workouts (Grab, Gulp, and Go!), sweaty gym-based HIIT sessions, or whenever you want to mix things up during longer races and sporting events (Orange Liquid Energy at halftime, anyone?). Taken five minutes before or anytime during activity, Liquid Energy Gel provides the fuel you need in a fun new format. Mix it in with your existing sports nutrition lineup!
DOES EATING A LIQUID ENERGY GEL MEAN I DON’T HAVE TO HYDRATE
Even though Liquid Energy Gel is drinkable, it’s still important to stay well-hydrated before, during, and after exercise by drinking 16-30 ounces per hour of activity (environment and individual sweat rates will influence your personal needs). We still recommend you drink water while taking a Liquid Energy Gel, as it helps speed the absorption process, getting you the energy you need, ASAP!
WHEN SHOULD I TAKE A LIQUID ENERGY GEL?
We recommend you take a Liquid Energy Gel anytime your activity level warrants the extra calories. Take it 5 minutes before a high-intensity workout, or anytime during prolonged exercise to support energy requirements. Mix and match Liquid Energy Gel with your other GU form factor favorites (gels, chews, drink mixes) to supply 200-300 kcal per hour for exercise lasting more than 60-90 minutes. When you are going long, be sure to take in a steady supply of nutrients from the start so you don’t “hit the wall.” For shorter duration (<60 min) activities that are moderate to high intensity, we recommend you take a serving of Liquid Energy Gel before your workout. No matter what the duration, be sure to hydrate adequately during your training.
IS LIQUID ENERGY GEL SAFE FOR CHILDREN?
While our products are intended for adult use, the ingredients in GU Liquid Energy Gel are safe for children and young adults under 18. However, we do not recommend caffeinated flavors for children. (Strawberry banana and Lemonade are caffeine-free).
