Gu's carbohydrate blend delivers high-quality, easily-digested and long-lasting energy for athletes in every sport and at all levels.
Fast-acting natural fructose (fruit sugar) goes straight to work building energy levels the maltodextrin is quickly absorbed and sent to muscles. Vital electrolytes keep blood chemistry in line and hydration levels stable. Calcium keeps muscles humming and caffeine adds an extra kick.
Complex carbs in the form of maltodextrin (70-80% of the complex/simple carbohydrates blend) help maintain glucose levels over time. Citrates (potassium citrate, sodium citrate and citric acid) help speed the conversion of these carbs into energy molecules. Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine, serve another fuel source, aid in recovery, improve mental performance and reduce fatigue by limiting the production of serotonin. Histidine, an essential amino acid, acts alongside the citrates as a buffer that helps neutralize lactic acid build-up in muscles.
Antioxidant vitamins C & E defend muscles from assault by free radicals. Chamomile works as an anti-inflammatory during and after exercise. Ginger soothes the stomach. Sea salt supplies a host of minerals. Gu mitigates the energy-sapping effects of lactic-acid build-up, optimizes energy production, aids recovery by replenishing muscle glycogen stores and allows for greater mental focus through delayed onset of fatigue signals from the central nervous system.
