Nrgy Unit Gel is based on extensive research to provide optimal fueling during intense exercise.
Nrgy Unit Gel is a fueling product that allows you to easily fuel during intense exercise. Nduranz Features make fueling with our products fast, easy, and efficient.
The version with caffeine packs 65 milligrams of caffeine per gel, allowing you to maintain the appropriate concentration of caffeine in your blood for optimal performance (check the Nduranz Caffeine Ingestion Protocol for more information).
Nrgy Unit Gel is designed to provide optimal fueling during intense exercise based on the latest research in the field of sports nutrition. Each gel contains 45 grams of carbohydrates.
The Nduranz Carbohydrate Ratio (1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin and fructose) allows you to maximize energy availability and ingest 90 grams or more of carbohydrates (360 calories) per hour without causing digestive issues.
The Nduranz Electrolyte Mix provides optimal hydration by replacing only what you actually lose in your sweat. This way you preserve the delicate balance of electrolytes in your blood and avoid digestive issues.
The Nduranz Carbohydrate Ratio uses both major intestinal carbohydrate transporters. This takes away the pressure off of your digestive system when ingesting high quantities of carbohydrates during intense exercise.
The Nrgy Unit system allows you to manage your caloric intake with simplicity and efficiency and to freely mix and match our different products that use the Nrgy Unit system.

When comparing a gel, a drink, and a bar of similar carbohydrate content, it was found that the gel is likely the best option for both the digestive system comfort as well as performance. ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27997257/
This study investigated varying doses of carbohydrates ingested in moderately-trained individuals on performance outcomes and found that 40 grams per hour are the minimal amount of carbohydrates that are required for improving performance. This is approximately the amount of 1 Nrgy Unit. ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29301367/
It is a common question – is it better to ingest carbohydrates more frequently but in smaller quantities or less frequently and in bigger boluses? Researchers from Loughborough University tried to answer this question and found that less frequent feedings produced better results. This is one of the reasons why one Nrgy Unit packs so much punch – not only it is more time-efficient to take two rather than three energy gels per hour, it is also more effective. ↪️ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32168107/
