Refuel and Reuse with the natural alternative to single use gels!
Active Root Gel Mix is a 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 thickness so you can forget about sticky single use gels.
WHAT IS GEL MIX?
Gel Mix is a waste free, natural alternative to sticky, single use gels that allows you to REFUEL naturally, REFILL and SAVE £££.
Each Gel Mix serving contains 25g of carbs, which is the equivalent of 1x standard sports gel.
Each Soft Flask holds between 3-4 Gel Mix servings (75-100g of carbs), of which all ingredients are natural, there are no artificial sweeteners or preservatives which means you don't have to fear sudden gut bombs.
Gel Mix comes as a powder that you mix with water in a refillable Soft Flask, which means you aren't left with loads of sticky wrappers.
Simply add 3-4 scoops of powder to your Soft Flask, fill the rest of the Flask with water and shake for 30secs, add more water if needed. You can also make your gel to your preferred consistency by adding more or less water.
On top of this, you don't have to consume a whole gel serving in one, but more gradually meaning there is less chance of blood sugar spikes and crashes.
When you purchase a 36x serving Tub (£25.99), each Gel Mix serving is only 69p, far less than the normal £1.50 of standard gels.
This means that it's a lot easier to often train with the fuel you are going to use on race day, rather than just using it for your event.
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 same volume of 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 your gel in a soft flask means you don't need to waste plastic or create litter with single use gels. With Gel Mix you can keep reusing your soft flask and do your bit towards protecting the environment.
Many of the gastric problems that arise from energy gels are caused by the artificial sweeteners and preservatives that they contain. This can also lead to a sickly, chemical taste. Active Root Gel Mix only 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 102mg of stomach settling ginger that helps prevent you feeling nauseous or bloated so you can focus on your sport. Stomach discomfort is a common problem whilst doing exercise, along with trying to keep fuelled and hydrated, particularly after using standard gels. The idea for using stomach settling ginger actually came from co-founder Will who suffered 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!
