GU Sports GU Electrolyte Brew Canister Orange is water's new best friend. The fact is, when you work out you sweat more than just water. So when you drink you gotta have a special Brew with the right amounts of sodium, potassium and carbohydrates to bring your system back into balance. Used consistently, GU Brew will help you perform better and go longer.Simpler is Better
No gimmicky additives here. GU Brew is as simple as they come - with just a handful of key ingredients. Complex and simple carbs in optimal balance, vital electrolytes at the proper levels for intense exercise, and all-natural flavors. Simple. This means the product is easy on your stomach and will keep you focused on reaching your goals in training and racing.Great Flavors / Not Too Sweet
If you are looking for a sugar bomb, look elsewhere. Loyal GU athletes rave about the lightly sweet taste of our Electrolyte Brew.GU ELECTROLYTE BREW DRINK INGREDIENT COMPARISONWhat happened to GU2O? Can I still purchase it?
GU2O is now GU Electrolyte Brew. Brew retains all of the attributes of GU2O with a slight formulation tweak to improve performance. Why Electrolyte Brew when original GU is already great?
They’re two different products, designed to work in tandem. Electrolyte Brew keeps you hydrated by replenishing the electrolytes your body sweats out during exercise. GU provides your body with energy to exercise and to maintain your effort during long workouts and events. The two products serve different, but equally important, functions. Most of our elite athletes carry both GU energy gels and Electrolyte Brew with them during training and racing. Electrolyte Brew tastes lighter than some of the other sports drinks I’ve tried. Does this mean it’s less effective?
No! Many sports drinks on the market are full of sugary sweeteners and other unnecessary additives. Large amounts of sugar in your drink can lead to bloating in your belly. With Electrolyte Brew, we give you only the stuff you need to stay hydrated and none of the extra fluff. How much should I drink each hour?
Approximately 24-32 ounces will do it. On hot days, you may even want to drink twice as much.Will Electrolyte Brew recharge my body faster than gu energy gel?
Try it, every person will react differently. However, we don’t suggest you forgo eating GU or Roctane altogether. These gels pack valuable amino acid formulas that reduce fatigue and sharpen your mental state. GU Energy's sports drink was designed to work in tandem with the regular intake of GU Energy Gel and Roctane. How long does Electrolyte Brew, once mixed into a beverage, remain stable? Does it need to be refrigerated?
Ideally Electrolyte Brew should be mixed just prior to exercise or competition. If you know you’re going to need more than one bottle of Electrolyte Brew, we suggest you carry it along in powder form and mix it with water when needed. Should I dilute Electrolyte Brew?
No! Electrolyte Brew was specifically formulated to deliver the energy and electrolytes you need to perform your best, hour after hour. Diluting Electrolyte Brew weakens it and could weaken you.Is it affected by heat if warmed up for use on cold days?
It is not affected by heat, but some people like the taste of hot Electroly:" ":hen taken simultaneously with GU or Electrolyte Brew, will diminish their powers. GU and Electrolyte Brew are designed to be used on an empty stomach (at least 3 hours after the last meal). All GU products deliver a high dose of calories in a rapidly digestible form that takes up minimal space in your stomach. This way you can keep fueling even when you’re pushing yourself to the max without worrying about slowing down to digest food.
Start drinking GU Electrolyte Brew before starting your workout, to maximize hydration levels. We recommend 16-24 oz. of GU Electrolyte Brew consumed about an hour before exercise.
During exercise, consume 20-30 oz. of GU Electrolyte Brew per hour.
After finishing your workout continue hydrating with GU Electrolyte Brew, but supplement this with 16-32 oz. of GU Recovery Brew to help your body replenish what was lost during exercise.

About GU Energy
GU SPORTS (SPORTS STREET MARKETING) WAS FOUNDED IN BERKELEY, CA, IN THE EARLY 90'S BY DR WILLIAM VAUGHAN. THE MISSION FROM DAY ONE, WHICH IS STILL TRUE TODAY, IS TO PROVIDE ATHLETES THE BEST EXERCISE SPECIFIC NUTRITION PRODUCTS AVAILABLE. PERIOD! AFTER FORMULATING THE WORLD'S FIRST ENERGY BAR, DR VAUGHAN WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THAT THE BAR, DUE TO ITS HIGH LEVEL OF FAT, FIBER AND PROTEIN, DID NOT WORK FOR ATHLETES WHILE THEY WERE TRAINING AND RACING. HIS OWN DAUGHTER, LAURA, A VERY ACCOMPLISHED ULTRA-MARATHONER, CONTINUED TO HAVE SEVERE STOMACH PROBLEMS WHEN CONSUMING BARS DURING RACES. "HOW CAN WE CALL IT AN ENERGY BAR FOR ATHLETES WHEN ALL IT DOES IS SHUT DOWN THE SYSTEM FOR 45 MINUTES OR SO WHILE THE BODY DIGESTS ALL THOSE USELESS-TO-ATHLETES INGREDIENTS?" ASKED A FRUSTRATED DR. VAUGHAN.
