Reviewing a nutritional item is so different than trying on a pair of shorts. Even restaurants I struggle with reviews. What I like is much different than what you may like, but my job is to tell you about my experience and you come up with a conclusion that fits you to try it or not. Let’s try to make this as useful to you as possible!
This review should start with a disclaimer, and notice to never ride behind me. I sweat a lot. Which means I need to take on a lot of liquids and replacement for the salt leaving my body on a salty stream.
Overall Review of the Gu Electrolyte Brew
Two thumbs up, the Brew is mostly carbs and sodium. Exactly what I need on hot days in the southeast. Replenishes what I’m sweating out without giving me a heavy stomach while riding tempo. If I need something with more weight to it I goto Cytomax. The Lemon Lime flavor reminds me the taste of the original Gatorade flavor. I find it strangely comforting as it brings me back to two a day practices in high school!
These guys come in single serve packets or big jugs. I recommend to try out a different flavors of the single serve and let me know what you think!
