Tasty Chewable Energy for Athletes
To avoid bonking while exercising, you need a portable source of easily digestible carbohydrates to fuel your muscles. GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories to meet the demands of all types of activity and contain carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways that can help maximize absorption, increase carbohydrate utilization, and diminish stomach distress, for energy that kicks in quickly and stays with you. Available in two different packets and sizes to give you more fueling options while you're on the move.
GU Energy Chews are crafted to supply both energy and key nutrients like electrolytes and amino acids to keep you feeling strong and energized. Delicious, mouthwatering flavors help you stick to your nutrition plan, so you can keep going. Energy Chews have similar nutrients per serving to the original GU Energy Gels, delivering the energy you need in chewable, bite-sized pieces.
