Why Take Endura Sports Energy Gels? Endura Sports Energy Gels are a concentrated energy source, containing a combination of two specialised forms of carbohydrates to increase total carb absorption from 60 g to 90 g an hour. Each gel contains 26 g of carbs with energy boosting caffeine. Store them on you during training and racing to conveniently keep glycogen levels up, maintain vital energy reserves and prevent hitting the wall.
Why Do I Need to Have the Gel With Water? It’s best to consume water when you take Endura Sports Energy Gels to avoid gastric upsets. For each gel consumed, look at drinking around 250-300 ml of water (an isotonic solution*) for the best absorption. Some people may find drinking so much water in one hit difficult. If this is the case, take the gel over 10- 20 minutes and have small sips with every portion, to reach around 250-300 ml in total.
For best results, consume one 35 g serve (one sachet, 11/3 tablespoons or 26.4 mL):
Before exercise: 15 minutes prior to exercise.
During exercise: Every 30 minutes with fluid to prevent glycogen depletion and energy loss.
After exercise: Directly after exercise to aid recovery.
