Crank Sports e. Gel Electrolyte Energy Gel

Mountain Rush
Cherry Bomb
Vanilla Strawberry Slam
Tropical Blast

e-Gel is the first and only Electrolyte Energy Gel with 4 to 5 times the electrolyte levels of traditional energy gels. When taken with adequate amounts of water you can now get balanced hydration, energy and electrolyte replacement in one product. And, with 150 carbohydrate calories, e-Gel packs 50% more energy than most competing energy gels.

Energy Gels by themselves are extremely hypertonic (more concentrated then your body fluids), which means they are very slowly absorbed by your body. With all energy gels (e-Gel, GU, Clif Shot, etc.) it is important that you consume adequate amounts of water (more info). Water dilutes the gel and lowers the osmolality of the combined solution, thus increasing the absorption rate. If you consume just the right amount of water, the combined solution will become isotonic (the same concentration as your body fluids) which allows for rapid absorption, hydration and maximum energy delivery.

Drinking Gatorade or other electrolyte sports drinks with your gel (instead of water) will not properly dilute the gel, thus slowing the absorption rate. This can also lead to stomach irritation and a dehydrating effect as your cellular fluids are drawn upon to dilute the gel.

So, if you drink water with your gel like you have to, then how do you replace your electrolytes? Other gels contain electrolytes, but unfortunately most do not contain nearly enough (see comparisons) to provide adequate electrolyte replacement (even GU says so). e-Gel on the other hand is the first Electrolyte Energy Gel and is designed to provide complete and balanced energy, hydration and electrolyte replacement. In fact, e-Gel has more than 5 times as much sodium and nearly twice as much potassium as most competing gels.
