About GO Energy + Caffeine Gel 150mg
Caffeine has been repeatedly shown to improve performance by lowering your perception of effort by providing a boost just when you need it.
GO Energy+Caffeine 150mg in double espresso flavor provides a high dose of caffeine for high intensity races and long, tough days on the road.
Benefits of the GO Energy + Caffeine Gel 150mg
When 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, 100mile 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.
Consume 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.

150mg of caffeine is the equivalent to two cups of coffee or 1-2 cans of energy drink. However, individuals tolerate caffeine consumption differently to others, so make sure you try it out in training, before using in competition.
