Energy gels are made up of simple carbohydrates and other
performance-booster ingredients. Due to its positive effects on mood-boosting,
caffeine is one of the most popular ingredients used in energy gels. Caffeine
was shown to improve both mental and physical awareness (*1).
Although energy gels are mostly made up of fast-acting carbohydrates,
such as maltodextrin and fructose, they can also contain electrolytes, plant
extracts and other nutrients. Energy gels are designed to everyone engaging
in physical activity. The supply of electrolytes to the body
prevents dehydration therefore delaying fatigue.
Due to its convenience, athletes all over the world have been using
energy gels as an easy way of maintaining blood sugar levels high and to
perform at the top of their condition.
