Created for athletes whose focus is on hydration, GU Hydration Drink Mix is formulated with a blend of electrolytes and carbohydrates, providing a light-tasting and rapidly absorbing hydration drink. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids hydration by maintaining water balance. This 70-calorie serving of GU Hydration Drink Mix contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress.
They’re two different products, designed to work in tandem. GU Hydration Drink Mix keeps you hydrated by replenishing the electrolytes your body sweats out during exercise. GU Energy Gels provide 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 Hydration Drink Mix with them during training and racing.
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 GU Hydration Drink Mix, receive only the stuff you need to stay hydrated and none of the extra fluff.
Approximately 24-32 ounces will do it. On hot days, you may even want to drink twice as much.
Try it, every person will react differently. However, we don’t suggest you forgo eating GU Energy Gel or Gu Roctane Energy Gel altogether. These gels pack valuable amino acid formulas that reduce fatigue and sharpen your mental state. Our sports drink was designed to work in tandem with the regular intake of GU Energy Gel and Roctane.
Ideally GU Hydration Drink Mix should be mixed just prior to exercise or competition. If you know you’re going to need more than one bottle, we suggest you carry it along in powder form and mix it with water when needed.
No! It was specifically formulated to deliver the energy and electrolytes you need to perform your best, hour after hour.
It is not affected by heat, but some people like the taste of hot Hydration Drink Mix while others don’t.

There’s been a lot of hype around beetroot juice lately. That’s because a few recent studies have shown that daily consumption of beetroot juice reduces the oxygen cost of exercise and increases high-intensity exercise tolerance. Beet It Sport – Beet Juice Concentrate was developed specifically to deliver athletes with a daily dose of the dietary nitrates necessary, in a 70ml shot.
We recommend that you have one Beet It Sport – Beet Juice Concentrate Shot 1-12 hours before exercise. Some endurance athletes suggest taking the shot on a loading basis – which refers to having one shot a day, 1-2 weeks leading up to an event.
