GU Energy Chews Field Te...
5:06:16 PM
Multisport athlete and FTM product tester - Ben Morris - shares his thoughts on GU Energy Chews that contain fast acting carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. 

Description
Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a convenient double-serving sleeve to help sustain the energy demands of long duration activities. Each serving is 80 calories and contains carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. 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.

Benefits:
  • ELECTROLYTES Maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration.
  • CARBOHYDRATES Deliver ready-to-use energy and delay bonking by sparing glycogen.
  • AMINO ACIDS Reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
  • CAFFEINE Enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort during exercise (note: not all flavors contain caffeine)

RECOMMENDED USE

Each serving of GU Chews contains 4 pieces (80 calories) and will provide enough fuel for approximately 30 - 45 minutes of activity. One sleeve of chews contains two servings. Consume 4 chews 5 minutes before, and 4 chews every 30 - 45 minutes during activity.

Wash down with your favorite sport drink or water for optimum absorption.

FAQ
Should I use GU Energy Chews instead of GU Energy Gel?
We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane Energy Gel) is the ideal source of fuel for an athlete while training or racing, but just in case you crave something to sink your teeth into, we’ve created GU Energy Chews. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chewable form.

How do you eat GU Energy Chews?
GU Energy Chews have a perforated strip at the top that allows you to squeeze out one Chew at a time. Remember, 4 Chews equal 1 serving.

How many packets of GU Energy Chews do I need?
1 sleeve contains 2 servings (8 chews), with one serving being 4 chews, which will provide enough fuel for 30 to 45 minutes. That said, all athletes are different and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Remember to hydrate along the way!

How long do GU Energy Chews take to work?
Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chews should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.

Are Chews safe for children?
Chews are safe for children to eat, but remember that some flavors contain caffeine.

Are Chews gluten free?

As with all GU Energy Labs products, Chews are gluten free.

Are Chews dairy free?
Yes.

Is GU Chews Kosher?

Most GU products are kosher but Chews are NOT.
