Gu Energy Gel
What we think
Accelerade Accel Gels are designed to deliver fast absorbing energy to working muscles and prevent bonking during intense training or competition. They contain a patented 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio, which has been shown to increase endurance and decrease post-exercise muscle damage. They also offer caffeinated gel options to help reduce fatigue during exercise.
The consistency of the Accel Gels is similar to a syrup, making is easy to get down during exercise. They tend to be on the sweeter side, which is expected due to their quick absorbing carbohydrate content. We definitely recommend trying these out before a big day to see how your body reacts to the carb + protein blend.

How We Use It
These gels are great for endurance training or races. The protein in the formula will slow the rate of carbohydrate absorption, making them more ideal for longer, lower intensity periods of exercise that require consistent energy. It is important to consume these gels with water to optimize fuel delivery and prevent dehydration. Take one gel 30-60 minutes before exercise and every subsequent 60 minutes of exercise with plenty of water.
