Gu Energy Gels, Chews, & Drinks

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

From 1991 until today, athletes the world over have come to the same conclusion: GU works. Their Berkeley-based sports nutrition company started with the original GU Energy Gel, great tasting, more effective method to keep athletes fueled during exercise. Since then, GU has continued to improve the recipe, incorporating the latest scientific research into its products.

In 2001, GU Electrolyte Brew (formerly Gu2o) was launched as the perfect hydration companion to GU Energy Gel. 2008 saw the introduction of Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel, followed by Chomps Energy Chews and GU Recovery Brew in 2009. Every product is formulated to further GU’s mission: to help athletes go faster and longer than ever before.

We have tried the Chomps, Brews, Energy Gel, and Roctane. When you are tired it is so important to have something that will not only make you feel better, but has a great texture and taste. We have replaced our dessert candies with the chews. They also let you know if there is caffeine or not in the product which we love because although we love the caffeine in the morning and afternoon, we don’t sleep if we have it at night.

Although these gels were developed for athletes, being over fifty, we find having one with us on just a regular day can sometimes mean the difference between a productive day and a tired one.
