GU® Energy Gel
When: Training & Racing
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. The primary electrolyte (sodium) aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. the branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.

what are the affects if you dont want GU gel down with water? any?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The effects of not washing down GU Gel with water are not listed; however the instructions say to "always wash down GU with a few gulps of GU Electrolyte Brew® or water".
Please advise on the frequency of use during a half marathon for maximum results.
A shopper on Jan 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: One pack before a run and then another every hour for the duration of race is the recommended dosing.
