GO Energy Plus Electrolyte Gels
Science in Sport's GO Energy Plus Electrolyte Gels is unique relative to other gels on the market. The company uses a highly scientific approach to athletic nutrition and has created the world's first isotonic energy gel. This allows faster and more complete absorption, great when you are at the limit during training and racing. The goal of these gels is to replace electrolytes lost through sweating to maintain fluid balance and prevent dehydration, and after trying them out, we have to say they are good on their claims.
By mirroring the dissolved particle concentration of the fluid in your body's cells, the electrolytes can easily transfer across cell membranes. That allows the energy they contain to go from your stomach to your bloodstream without needing extra water. Most other gels are hypertonic, meaning they have a higher concentration of dissolved particles than your cell fluid and require extra liquid to encourage absorption. If you are already verging on slight dehydration, hypertonic gels absorb slowly and can cause some stomach discomfort.
GO Energy Plus Electrolyte Gels deliver 22 grams carbs for energy, and also provides 118mg sodium, 9.5mg potassium and 1.5mg magnesium per gel for hard-working muscles. The packs fit easily in jersey pockets and hydration packs for quick calories and electrolytes on demand.
These gels are certified through the Informed Sport Evolved Certification program, so they undergo vigorous testing through a third party, world-class anti-doping lab that analyzes pre-production raw ingredients and post-production product. The organization also completes site audits to ensure that these gels contain quality ingredients and are free from prohibited substances, so you can rest assured that there will be no surprises if tested in competition.
The Science in Sport GO Energy Plus Caffeine Gels are available in raspberry or lemon and mint, in 6 and 30-packs. They're also vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, wheat-free, and nut-free.

Goes down very easy.
- I've put it through the wringer
These are the only gels I can handle on the bike. The consistency is quite thin and liquidy, sort of like maple syrup, so it's easy to swallow even on hot, dry days. Whereas some other brands have a toothpaste-like viscosity, SIS gels go down very easy.
