Gel bottle versus old sachet
11 Reasons to enjoy the little decanting GT Gel bottle (as opposed to the old sachet idea)
- You have control over how much you’d like to use and when. One x 10km worth of running is not exactly the same as the next 10km. So you can pace your consumption based the route – You don’t have to use the whole bottle – you can use less if the route is easy.
- Small sips intermittently from the gel bottle (as opposed to one full sachet at time for 10kms) has several advantages: – Ensures a very even uptake of both energy and electrolytes – Ensures much more even blood sugar levels – No (or very little) risk of nausea (that often happens after having a full sachet) – Little sips of water, along with little sips of GT gel makes for a lowered risk of dehydration and cramping. (Note the sodium levels in GT Gel are significant so as to prevent hyponatraemia/over-hydration)
- You can add a little bit of water to the bottle to make it super-runny.
- There is no wasting of precious gel caught in the folds of the sachet: With the decanting bottle, you can add water to it, give it a quick shake and drink the remaining contents in the bottle.
- Hygienic! YOU get to wash (and handle) your own bottle – as opposed to sachets being handled by countless hands in shops/transport/support teams etc.
- The bottle is small – so it can fit snugly into your shorts/tights/top/running belt/sports-bra/crop-top. Easy to whip out, swig and put back.
- No seams or sharp edges that can poke into your skin.
- No sticky fingers or sticky sachets in your pockets.
- No litter!
- No aluminum lining inside the gel bottle. (Sachets have an aluminum lining that can leach into the gel as it lies in it for months)
