Energy Spotlight: Gu Energy Gel Cola Me-Happy

 

 

Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel packs energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.

All GU Energy Gels are vegan, gluten free, and kosher.

About GLUKOS

GLUKOS founder Mark Jensen, a former collegiate runner and Ironman competitor, realized there was a gap in the energy product market. This led him to extensive research and development to find the optimum source of energy that was both healthy and effective for athletes, similar to an oral IV. GLUKOS is similar to an IV because it contains the same basic ingredients, including water, glucose and electrolytes like potassium. Glucose is the only fuel the human body can use to produce natural energy unlike other energy products that contain High Fructose Corn Syrup, which actually creates lactic acid, and triglycerides in the muscles that hurt performance and recovery, caffeine which artificially increases the heart rate and causes dehydration, and artificial sweetener.

Energy Spotlight: Torq Raspberry Ripple Energy Gel Raspberry Ripple

 

 

Raspberry Ripple naturally flavoured energy gel formulated with research-proven 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose multiple-transportable carbohydrates for extremely fast carbohydrate delivery...

A TORQ gel represents 1 TORQ Unit. For further information on how to use this product in conjunction with other TORQ Units, click on the following link:

* Optimal carbohydrate blend (2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose)
* With electrolytes
* Natural flavours
* Light texture
* No colours or artificial sweeteners
* Naturally caffeinated options

Maltodextrin used in isolation has been proven to be considerably more effective than glucose used in isolation because of its lower osmolality in the gut. However, recent research* has compared traditional 'maltodextrin only' formulations with a 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose blend and the results are nothing short of staggering.

About the Company
This image IS MuleBar. Our name and iconic silhouette was inspired from this one photo of a mule and gaucho forever climbing...

 
The MuleBar story starts with us high in the Andes on Aconcagua, back in 2002. Guides supplied us with a host of different bars that made our stomachs bad, and we knew immediately we could make better energy bars at home.

 
After making prototypes in our kitchens, we pedalled them around races to have people try them. We rode the Trans-Scotland stage race, then the Cape Epic and kept testing them until we were turning up to races and being told our bars were better than the ones on sale...lightbulb moment.
Teaming up with Matt Lovell, who at the time was England RFU's nutritional advisor, we spent long hours cooking up more prototypes, getting the bars better and better, tastier and tastier and delivering more and more energy.  Read More

Supplement Spotlight: PacificHealth 2nd Surge – Ultra Energy Gel

 

 

2nd Surge Gel is the first all-natural energy gel specifically formulated to provide rapid energy, reduce fatigue, and speed reaction time. Each gel contains 100mg of caffeine so you don't hit the wall. The proprietary formula of rapid-acting carbohydrate, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants decreases muscle damage and gives you the added energy for a stronger finish.

 

 

About 2nd Surge

2nd Surge is the first all natural energy gel specifically formulated to delay the onset of both muscle and brain fatigue. The proprietary formula of rapid-acting carbohydrate, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants gives you the added energy for a stronger finish.

Only 2nd Surge is proven to:

• Increase the delivery of critical nutrients to both brain and muscle cells
• Inhibit the release of fatigue signals in the brain
• Reduce post-exercise muscle damage

It is now well accepted that fatigue has two components, a muscle component and a brain component. Although it has been well established that caloric supplementation can improve muscle endurance, it is not known if consumption of the right combination of nutrients during exercise can reduce central or brain fatigue. In a study conducted by researchers at Montana State, cyclists consumed 2nd Surge Ultra Energy Gel and then completed two 70-minute trials during which central fatigue was assessed. Researchers found that 2nd Surge Energy Gel produced greater relative power during the trial and significantly improved reaction time by almost 5%.

Available in Chocolate (w/100mg of caffeine), Double Expresso (w/100mg of caffeine) and NEW Pina Colada (w/100mg of caffeine).
