GU Watermelon Energy Chews are an energy-dense portable source of calories – perfect for the energy demands of long duration activities. The 80-calorie packet contains carbohydrates to keep you fuelled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. The high sodium content in Gu Chews aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
