What is a Sports Gel?
Sports Gels are a convenient energy source with energy boosters like caffeine and a blend of carbohydrates to sustain energy levels. You can store Endura Gels on you and simply take one with water as you need to. They are an easy way to keep your glycogen levels up and are suitable for taking either during an event, after for recovery or during training sessions.
Why do I need to have the Gel with Water?
It is best to drink water when you consume gels in order to avoid any possible gastric upset. 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 an Endura Gel Sweetened with?
An Endura Gel are sweetened with specialised microcrystalline fructose, a natural sweetener found in fruit and honey. Fructose also speeds up gastric emptying and hastens the absorption of the maltodextrin subunits. This all helps to improve your responsiveness to the carbohydrates in each gel and boost your energy levels faster.

Endura Gel Review
We found these gels went down really well. The flavours are amazing and a good reward for the hard work of training with intensity. For most, the caffeine content won't be noticeable until you get past the 3 or 4 gel mark. Though this differs from person to person, depending on your level of sensitivity to this stimulant. Each gel delivers around 1/11th the caffeine content of an average cup of coffee.
The gels are slim and easy to store in pockets. They can even be used as an intra-workout during high intensity weight training to keep blood sugars levels elevated. These are a remarkable achievement from Endura, a sports nutrition company that knows how to create products that are affordable, taste great and deliver the expected results.
