Refuel and Reuse with the natural alternative to single use gels!
Active Root Gel Mix is a gel powder that easily mixes with water to create a natural gel, ideal for endurance racing and training. Easy to mix into your soft flask, you can mix however many servings you need to your preferred viscosity so you can forget about sticky single use gels.
Active Root Gel Mix gets rid of the problems of sticky, single use gels! Using the easy to use scoop funnel included simply add Gel Mix Powder into a reusable soft flask and add water to mix. Each serving makes up the equivalent of a single gel (24g of carbohydrate p/serving). We recommend using a 150ml soft flask which holds 3 servings.
A major problem with standard gels is that you have to take them in one go - that's approximately 25g of carbohydrate suddenly hitting your stomach. No wonder so many people have gut problems using them.
Because Active Root Gel Mix comes as a powder, you can make it as much or as little as you need and as viscous or runny as you like. Simply choose a bigger or smaller soft flask and adjust thickness by adding more or less powder and water.
Active Root Gel Mix Bundles come with a 3 serving 150ml soft flask. With Gel Mix you're able to take the gel more gradually and measured meaning less chance of those debilitating blood sugar spikes.

Carrying you gel in a soft flask means you don't need to waste plastic and create litter with single use gels. With Gel Mix you can keep reusing your soft flask and do a little bit towards protecting the environment.
Many of the gastric problems that arise from energy gels are because of the artificial sweeteners and preservatives that they contain. This can also lead to a sickly, chemical taste. Active Root Gel Mix just uses natural ingredients that your stomach regularly digests. It's therefore also a far more natural, palatable and, we think, delicious taste! It's hard not to take 3 servings in one it's that moreish!
Like all Active Root products Gel Mix contains stomach settling ginger that helps prevent you feeling nauseous or bloated so you can focus on your sport. Having stomach discomfort is a common problem when whilst doing exercise and trying to keep fuelled and hydrated, particularly after using standard gels. The idea for using stomach settling ginger actually came from co-founder Will suffering from stomach discomfort after using gels whilst training for a marathon. So with Active Root Gel Mix you can forget about those stomach problems, keep naturally fuelled and focus on smashing those PBs!
