GUHydration Drink Mix Canister

Mixing up a storm of performance.

Just like you, the nutritional braniacs over at GU keep making it better. Reformulated this year for even better performance, GU Hydration Drink Mix is a staple of the training and competing diets of countless athletes. The new GU Hydration Drink Mix shifts the formula slightly away from carbs and towards electrolyte concentration, to more quickly replenish your cells and give them what they need. Employing a 50/50 ratio of simple and complex carbs (via fructose and maltodextrin, respectively), GU Brew can sustain countless hours of exertion, all with a sublte, pleasant taste that doesn't linger and never overwhelms.

The GU Hydration Drink Mix Canister provides 24 servings and is available in six flavors: Lemon Lime, Blueberry Pomegranate, Lemon Tea, Orange, Watermelon, and Tastefully Nude.

Not overpowering

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought the orange flavored drink and have used it a few times. it is not overly sweet, just enough to let you know its there. I enjoy that especially after a bike ride when you just can't handle the sweet stuff. It tastes like a watered down Gatorade. I enjoy it. One thumb up. (I would say two but I lost my one thumb in a shuffleboard accident. that story will come in another review)

I just started using this product. Seems to do a great job keeping me hydrated.

Like an Arnold Palmer on the trail

Awesome, and refreshing. I love GU products no fizzing agents so its gentle on the stomach. I love the Tea/Lemonade flavor.

Our Hydration Drink Mix will keep you hydrated and provide a light energy boost when you out there running or riding. When you become dehydrated, your power output and performance suffer during activity – that’s why staying hydrating is so important!

Catering to the serious athlete

GU came out with this new formula but I didn't like it at first...change. However I like the blueberry pomegranate best. Light tasting, and salt content is higher than other brands--great for hotter, longer, and harder efforts.
