Is gu ok to give to a 14 yr old athletic female???
A shopper on May 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Certainly. It is electrolytes, sugar, and caffeine. It is not a multi hour product. However if you ran or biked too far and are tired and need to get home, this will help. Like any new food, try one and see how your body handles it.
