6. Glukos Energy Gel
Glukos is a super simple gel made with water, glucose, electrolytes sodium and potassium, and all-natural flavors and coloring. It’s a cleaner version of more traditional gels.
Glucose hits your bloodstream faster than sucrose or fructose, because it’s absorbed immediately and doesn’t need to be digested first. In short: It’s best for quick (not sustained) energy. Meanwhile, the addition of sodium and potassium replenish what’s lost during exercise, helping with everything from fluid regulation to nerve transmission.
