What Is A Sports Gel? Endura™ Sports Energy Gels are a convenient energy source with energy boosters like caffeine, and a blend of immediate impact and slow release carbohydrates to sustain energy levels. You can store them on you and just take with water as you need. They are an easy way of keeping glycogen levels up and are suitable for taking either during the whole event, or to get you through when you hit the wall. Why Do I Need to Have the Gel With Water? It is best to drink water when you consume gels, to avoid gastric upsets. For each gel consumed, look at drinking around 250-300 mL of water to achieve an isotonic solution for best absorption. Some athletes 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 that 250-300mL total. What Is the Sugar Endura Sports Gels Are Sweetened With? Endura™ Sports Energy Gels are sweetened with specialised branched chain glucose polymers and microcrystalline fructose which provide rapid gastric emptying and absorption.
