Another Satisfied
Customer:

"Three hours into an agressive 5 hour ride, my legs were cooked, and my body needed electrolytes in a bad way. I shot another brand of energy gel and come to find out the gel had gone bad. I had no other means on me, when a training partner handed me what turned out to be the best tasting, quickest reacting energy gel I had ever used. Not only did the Tropical Blast e-Gel get me through the remainder of our ride, it made an immediate impact on my new gel of choice. I don't leave the house without a supply of my new best friends: Tropical Blast and Cherry Bomb. Thanks for finally making a gel that works AND tastes great. " (read more)

e-Gel is the first and only Electrolyte Energy Gel with 5 times the sodium and double the potassium of traditional energy gels. When taken with water you can now get balanced hydration, energy and electrolyte replacement in one product. And, with 150 carbohydrate calories, e-Gel packs 50% more energy than most competing energy gels.



The Balanced Solution
Energy Gels by themselves are extremely hypertonic (more concentrated then your body fluids), which means that you have to consume water to ensure that they are rapidly absorbed. This is the case for all gels (GU, Clif Shot and others). Water dilutes the gel and lowers the concentration (osmolality), thus increasing the absorption rate. If you consume just the right amount of water, the combined solution will become isotonic (the same concentration as your body fluids) which allows for rapid absorption, hydration and maximum energy delivery.

If you try to get your electrolytes by drinking a sports drink (instead of water) it will not properly dilute the gel, thus slowing the absorption rate. This can also lead to stomach irritation and a dehydrating effect as your cellular fluids are drawn upon to dilute the gel. (read more: when to use energy gels vs. hydration drinks and can they be used together)

So, if you drink water with your gel like you have to, then how do you replace your electrolytes? Other gels contain electrolytes, but they do not contain nearly enough (see comparisons) to provide adequate electrolyte replacement (even GU says so). e-Gel on the other hand is the first Electrolyte Energy Gel and is designed to provide complete and balanced energy, hydration and electrolyte replacement. In fact, e-Gel has more than 5 times the sodium and twice as much potassium as competing gels.

e-Gel is low in sugar, why is his important?
If we spike the level of our blood sugar then we have lots of energy ... for a little while, and then we come crashing down. This doesn't work so well for "endurance" athletes. Simple sugars can do just that, a little bit is okay but too much will quickly raise your blood sugar. If it could stay elevated life would be great, but unfortunately it can't, and when and comes back down it drops (crashes) well below where it started. When this happens during athletic activity it is a dual edged sword. Your performance will drop as the blood sugar drops because your body is depending on that energy, and your body will no longer be able to as efficiently convert your muscle glycogen into usable energy ... here comes the BONK!!! The goal is to maintain a consistent blood sugar level without the spikes and crashes, and this is achieved by relying primarily on complex carbohydrates and low sugar levels, and that's exactly what you get with e-Gel!

Ingredients
The primary ingredient in e-Gel is maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate derived from corn. For endurance activities you should always look for products that are high in complex carbohydrates and low in simple sugars. The problem with simple sugars is that they rapidly increase your blood sugar, which feels good for a short period of time, but then your blood sugar can come crashing down. When you give your kids candy this is called a sugar crash but when it happens to an athlete we call it BONKing. The carbohydrate blend in e-Gel is 82% maltodextrin and 18% fructose and has been formulated to maximize energy delivery. Research has shown that products with multiple carbohydrate sources can deliver more energy to working muscles compared to products using a single carbohydrate source. It is also important to note that there is a wide variety of maltodextrins with varying molecular structures. e-Gel uses the highest quality maltodextrin with a large molecular structure that allows the product to deliver even more energy (for more information read about the effect of carbohydrates on osmolality). Be aware of products that use large amounts of carbohydrates that are high in simple sugars such as sucrose, honey, brown rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, etc.). e-Gel is also 100% Gluten-Free.

Product Usage
For each hour of athletic activity, Crank Sports recommends consuming 1 to 2 e-Gel packets and 16 to 32 ounces of water for balanced energy, hydration and electrolyte replacement. Your individual intake requirements will vary depend among other things on temperature, humidity, athletic intensity, etc. For more information, refer to: Hydration - the key to optimum performance with energy gels.

Why Try e-Gel?
There is very little difference between most traditional energy gels besides taste, texture and packaging. e-Gel is not just another energy gel, it is the only Electrolyte Energy Gel and it truly stands apart from the competition. e-Gel is the only gel that provides balanced electrolyte replacement, the highest quality carbohydrates and a complete profile of amino acids and antioxidants.
