Like GU, Chews contain a balance of complex carbohydrates (maltodextrin) and simple carbs (tapioca syrup and cane sugar) as the basis for delivering fast and usable energy. Each carbohydrate plays a key role in fuelling your competitive fire. Together they get you moving faster and longer, not to mention helping you feel better on the rebound.
Of course there is more to GU and Chews than just carbs. Both contain branched chain amino acids, which provide extra energy during exercise and play a key role in maintaining concentration and accelerating recovery from a hard workout or race.
GU Chews are the only energy chews on the market with amino acids.
GU Chews are chock full of two key antioxidants, all natural vitamins C and E. Free radicals hate us! We can't guarantee that you won't bonk or won't be sore after a long workout, but certainly the advanced food science behind GU products will help.
GU Chews are the only energy chew on the market with 100% DV of Vitamins C & E.
Meaningful levels of electrolytes, when supported by water, help you stay hydrated and firing on all cylinders.
GU Chews contain 55mg of sodium & 40mg of potassium per serving.
Caffeine has meaningful benefits for athletes during training or racing as it:
