CLIF SHOT Energy Gel supplies 22-24g carbohydrates for energy during training. We recommend one packet 15 minutes before activity, and 1 or 2 packets per hour during activity. Always follow consumption with water. CLIF SHOT takes a streamlined approach to sports nutrition to provide energy during activity. CLIF SHOT Engery Gel has fewer ingredients – whether it’s their gear or their food, performance athletes can’t afford to be loaded down with anything superfluous. Less is more.
