It all started in a Berkeley, California kitchen in 1993. Just over 25 years ago, Dr. Bill Vaughan formulated the first GU Energy Gel as a more digestible fuel for his daughter, a top ultramarathoner. What he created was a product that enabled athletes to fuel breakthrough performances.
Innovation was what launched GU Energy Labs 25 years ago and since then, GU has been on a mission to serve athletes by optimizing every aspect of diet and nutrition.
“In the late ‘80s, we recognized that endurance athletes weren’t feeding their bodies with the nutrients they needed most, and their performance was suffering as a result. That was the spark that led my father to research the role nutrition plays in exercise physiology. The original GU Gel is a significant outcome of that research.” said Brian Vaughan, co-founder and CEO of GU Energy Labs. “I look back on all that we’ve done as a company, all the incredible performances we’ve helped fuel, and I’m thrilled for what the future holds.”
GU Energy Labs strives to help athletes to reach their highest potential with products that deliver the right nutrients, in the right amounts, at the right time. Developed in collaboration with Olympians and age groupers alike, the GU nutrition matrix of Hydration, Energy and Recovery products has helped countless athletes achieve their dreams since its inception in 1993. Headquartered in Berkeley, GU Energy Labs produces all of its Energy Gels onsite with just the right blend of heart and science.
