Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do energy chews work?
Energy chews are one of the most effective ways to get a fast and powerful energy boost while running, cycling or exercising for long durations. Energy chews are made of simple sugars and some with added electrolytes that help replenish the glycogen and calories you’re burning while racing. You’ll usually feel the effects hit your bloodstream within 15 minutes. With an easy-to-carry and consume format, energy chews are the perfect sidekick for endurance athletes.
2. When should I take my energy chews?
Generally, you should take your energy chews 15 minutes before a race and then every 30-60 minutes while on the move. Energy chews come in a semi-solid, easy-to-chew format so it’s effortless to eat energy chews while running. Simply tear open the pack, consume the pre-portioned chew, and follow with a sip of water. It can be a good idea to time your intake with the aid station. And always experiment to find out what keeps your muscles firing until the finish line.
