GU Brew focuses more on hydration and less on carbohydrate delivery, offering 70 calories per serving. This 3% carbohydrate solution provides added flexibility to the athlete. Mix it as instructed for rapid absorption or combine with your favorite GU/Roctane gel for increased energy density during longer workout days. For athletes looking for a more energy dense carbohydrate solution, try Roctane Energy Drink.
Hydration before exercise:
To ensure proper pre-exercise hydration, consume approximately 16-24 oz. (470-720 ml) of GU Electrolyte Brew within an hour of the start of your workout.
Rehydration during exercise:
Fluid replacement should approximate sweat and urine losses during exercise and is dependent on many environmental factors. Generally, it is required to consume 7-10 oz. of fluids (200-300 ml) every 10 to 20 minutes during exercise, but specific individual recommendations are based on exercise duration, sport dynamics, sweat rates, and individual tolerance.
Rehydration after exercise:
Rehydration after exercise should aim to correct fluid loss accumulated during exercise. Depending on one’s exercise duration and intensity, replace the electrolyte losses from sweat by consuming GU Brew and jump start protein syntheses with the help of GU Recovery Brew.
