• 22 grams of carbohydrate per gel
• Formulation delivering energy fast and efficiently

Recommended UsageConsume 1 gel 1 hour before exercise for high intensity, short duration events to ensure the body starts with elevated caffeine levels. In longer duration events consume no more than 2 gels per day. Ensure you keep hydrated. This product is not intended for children, under 16's or pregnant women. Where hydration is important, GO Energy + Caffeine Gel 150mg can also be consumed with GO Hydro or GO Electrolyte to ensure a combination of energy, caffeine and fluid delivery during exercise.
BenefitsWhen pushing yourself hard, your brain controls how fatigued you feel. Caffeine acts as a stimulant on the brain to lower your perception of effort, allowing you to keep pushing and maybe stretch yourself a little further. It can take 30-60 minutes after consumption for caffeine levels to peak in the blood, so if you are doing a short duration event (less than 60 minutes) you should take it before you start. If you are doing a much longer event, such as a marathon, 100 mile sportive, or half-ironman triathlon or longer, you should save your caffeine intake for the last two hours when your fatigue level is likely to catch up with you.
