What are Energy Gels?

An energy gel is a ready-to-take carbohydrate preparation that can be used on the go in the middle of a training session or competition.

The supplement has a viscous texture and it’s become the star product for endurance athletes in the world of sport and nutrition.

It’s composed of carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, meaning it’s a rapid source of energy that’s ready to take whenever you need it.

What are Energy Gels for? What do they do?

They provide “fuel” for our body when we need energy quickly to cope with considerable physical effort.

Energy gels work as a rapid energy booster for athletes during long-lasting sessions. Its purpose is to contribute to the improvement of physical performance during high intensity and long duration physical exercise in trained adults.

Types of Energy Gels on the market

Here’s a list of the different options available in our shop:

Energy Gel tips

At HSN, we always recommend taking energy gels with water. The water will help your texture dilute better.

A very practical trick used by cyclists and runners is to dissolve it in a sports bottle or thermos and gradually take it as needed.

What are the properties of Energy Gels?

Gels are composed of a powerful energy source, such as carbohydrates, and are used during physical exertion to ensure sustained performance. They contain sodium, vitamins and minerals to compensate for the losses caused by sweat.

Generally speaking, they improve performance in long-distance sports and during very high-intensity and short-duration efforts, reducing fatigue.

 Energy Gels properties

It should be noted that:

  • Carbohydrate solutions contribute to the improvement of physical performance during high-intensity and long-lasting physical exercise in trained adults, when consumed under certain conditions. Only trained adults who perform high-intensity exercise (at least 65% of VO2max) and long-duration exercise (at least 60 minutes) will feel the effects.

  • Caffeine contributes to the reduction of perceived exertion during physical exercise. It should be consumed in doses of 4mg/kg body weight one hour before physical exercise.

Who are Energy Gels recommended for?

Energy gels are aimed at athletes, especially those competing in long-duration disciplines such as cross-country athletics, marathon running, cycling, triathlons...

The main aim for high-intensity athletes is to avoid depleting glycogen reserves in the middle of a competition. Energy gels can provide this energy without causing stomach problems.

The best energy fels for cyclist and runners

Two energy gels made for cyclists and runners are SportSeries Evoenergy with Caffeine and SportSeries Evoenergy Caffeine-Free. They’re both great allies to have in the world of running, trail running, triathlon and high-intensity cycling. You can try them in our Tasting Pack, saving you money and giving you the option to pick your favourite flavours.

These are gel-format food preparations that provide the perfect amount for sustained energy. They’re easy to carry in runners’ pockets, cyclists’ jerseys, or even just in your hand.

But as we know not all athletes work the same, we recommend trying the gels in your training sessions first.

Don’t forget to recycle them in the appropriate bin!

What is the energy gels composition?

Energy gels are basically composed of carbohydrates and water. The most common options are sports gels with guarana, with or without caffeine, a stimulant not tolerated by some athletes, supplemented with vitamin C, minerals and simple carbohydrates (Palatinose, Glucose, Fructose) that contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after high-intensity physical exercise.

Preguntas frecuentes de nuestros clientes

Because, thanks their properties, they’re an excellent aid for athletes both in their training sessions and competitions.

Gels can be taken before and during sports practice, whether it’s exercising, running, or long-distance and intense training sessions.

We recommend taking an energy gel during the activity with water, approximately 45 minutes after starting. However, it’s worth noting that this is a rough guide as it depends on many factors, including the type of sport, the intensity, and physical condition of the athlete.

A gel for cyclists and runners can take between 5 and 10 minutes to take effect, although it depends on the body of each person.

You should have realistic expectations and be aware that an energy gel isn’t a magic wand that will have an instant and immediate effect, despite its easy absorption.

For sessions of up to 2.5 hours, a serving containing 31g of carbohydrates is sufficient. Anything over this, take a gel every 45-60 mins.
