GU Energy: Perform Your Best

GU Energy – This company offers advanced nutritional products to help you perform at your best during strenuous activities. From their GU Energy Gels, GU Chomps, GU Electolyte Brew, to their New Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gels you have many different products to choose from to help you gain an edge over the competition. With many flavors to choose from, there is a flavor for even the pickiest palate.

GU Energy Gel and Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel – If you need instant boost to your performance, these gels will provide you with instantaneous energy. I’ve come to call it “turbo in a packet”. At 1.1oz, it comes in a small packet that can easily fit into your pocket. I recommend you putting it in your pocket to warm it up with body heat for a few minutes before you eat it, so it will be less viscous.

The main differences between the GU Energy Gel and the Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel is the Roctane contains an amino blend of Histidine, Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine. There is a total of 13 flavors you can also choose from: Pineapple, Vanilla Orange, Vanilla Bean, Espresso Love, Strawberry Banana, my personal favorite Mint Chocolate, and many more great flavors!

GU Electrolyte Brew - During a recent charity bike ride, I used the GU Electrolyte Brew to keep me hydrated. What I like most about this product is its portability since it’s in powdered form and comes in a 1.2oz package which makes 21 fluid oz. It comes in four different flavors: Lemon Lime, Orange, Raspberry, and Blueberry Pomegranate. They all taste great with my favorite being Raspberry.

GU Chomps – Before I was introduced to GU Chomps, I carried in a sandwich bag gummy bears to help me stay energized on my road bike rides. The gummy bears’ effect only lasted a short while, but the GU Chomps kept me going a lot longer. It must be the fact that it contains Amino Acids, Vitamins C and E, and Electrolytes. The Strawberry and Cranberry Apple flavors also contain caffeine. The Orange, Watermelon, and Blueberry Pomegranate do not contain caffeine.

Bottom Line – If you want to increase your performance during strenuous exercise, these GU Energy Performance products will give you the ability to perform at your best. GU has optimized their products for the athlete, but even the everyday Joe such as myself can take advantage of the boost in energy GU will provide. Before I leave home to ride my bike, my checklist is as follows: air pressure – check, helmet – check, water bottles w/GU Electoltye Brew – check, GU Energy Gel and GU Chomps – check. Ready for TAKE OFF!
