FLAVOR SCIENCE

Whether you’re working in the yard all day or crushing a workout, one thing is certain: lemonade delivers. We had to include this thirst-quenching classic as part of our line of Liquid Energy Gel to keep you fueling through your workout. It’s sour, sweet, and so satisfyingly refreshing.

WHAT IS LIQUID ENERGY?

GU Liquid Energy Gels deliver the same benefits as our Original Energy Gels with energy from a precise blend of complex and simple carbohydrates that will fuel you up, so you feel good, longer. Along with energy, Liquid Energy Gels also deliver key nutrients like electrolytes and amino acids to maintain proper hydration and keep you moving strong.

WHY LIQUID ENERGY?

Change it up
More choice is better! We know athletes crave different flavors and textures at different times. Liquid Energy gives you another option in convenient, portable fuel.

A PRO TIP FOR HOT DAYS

A frozen Liquid Energy Gel makes a tasty treat
That's right, because Liquid Energy Gels have a higher water content than our Original Energy Gels, they freeze! A slushie Energy Gel before a hot workout is the perfect way to get energized. Iced lemonade anyone?

SUGGESTED USE GUIDE

0-1 Hours Of Effort

When you're exercising for an hour or less, it's important to start your workout well-hydrated and energized. Five minutes before your activity, top off your energy stores with one serving of Liquid Energy Gel. It's always best to take a few sips of water to help your body process your fuel.

1-2 Hours of Effort

When you're exercising for longer than an hour, it's important to refuel along the way. Aim to eat a Liquid Energy Gel every 30-45 minutes to keep going strong. Even though Liquid Energy Gels contain some water, it's important to keep hydrating with additional liquids.

2-3 Hours Of Effort

As you increase exercise duration, your body needs more. Supplement your Liquid Energy Gels with Energy Chews, Hydration Tabs for electrolyte replacement, or Roctane Energy Drink for energy and hydration in one.

3+ Hours Of Effort

During really long efforts, it's impossible to replace everything you're burning, but you can maximize your performance by eating as much as your body can comfortably process. Boost your BCAA consumption with Roctane Energy Gels or Roctane Drink Mix, which will help protect your muscles as you go longer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS LIQUID ENERGY GEL DIFFERENT FROM ORIGINAL ENERGY GEL?

Both Liquid Energy and Original Energy Gels are a portable source of easily-digestible carbohydrates. The main differences are 1) Consistency: As the name implies, it’s a more liquid version of our Energy Gel. We like to call it The GU You Can Gulp. 2) Size: Weighing in at just over two ounces GU Liquid Energy is a larger serving size and packet than our Original Energy Gel. (Don’t worry, it’s still pocket-compatible!)

WHEN SHOULD I USE LIQUID ENERGY GELS?

Perfect for those “I just rolled out of bed and am heading out the door, but don’t feel like eating” workouts (Grab, Gulp, and Go!), sweaty gym-based HIIT sessions, or whenever you want to mix things up during longer races and sporting events (Orange Liquid Energy at halftime, anyone?). Taken five minutes before or anytime during activity, Liquid Energy Gel provides the fuel you need in refreshing format. Mix it in with your existing sports nutrition lineup!

DOES EATING A LIQUID ENERGY GEL MEAN I DON’T HAVE TO HYDRATE?

Even though Liquid Energy Gel is drinkable, it’s still important to stay well-hydrated before, during, and after exercise by drinking 16-30 ounces per hour of activity (environment and individual sweat rates will influence your personal needs). We still recommend you drink water while taking a Liquid Energy Gel, as it helps speed the absorption process, getting you the energy you need quickly.

WHY ARE LIQUID ENERGY GELS MADE WITH TWO TYPES OF CARBOHYDRATES?

Carbohydrates are efficient energy, and we use a blend of carbs to deliver more energy into the bloodstream as efficiently as possible. Our system of dual-source carbohydrates provides an "express lane" for each type of carbohydrate to deliver more usable energy to your body than a single source of carbs, which helps you feel energized for longer.

ARE THERE BCAAS IN GU LIQUID ENERGY GEL?

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential amino acids, or building blocks of proteins, which make up the muscles, connective tissues, and all the other structures in the human body. Taking BCAAs during exercise can help delay the onset of fatigue, decrease muscle tissue breakdown, and kickstart muscle protein synthesis.

DOES ONE LIQUID ENERGY GEL EQUAL TWO GU ENERGY GELS?

No. GU Liquid Energy Gel is designed to add variety and an additional option for nutritional support for prolonged exercise. However, they provide the same number of calories (100 cal) and amino acids (450mg) per serving as our Original Energy Gel.

ARE LIQUID ENERGY GELS KOSHER?

No they are not Kosher.
