Table of contents

As well as staying hydrated and getting enough calories, with any form of activity you will sweat salt, the amount will depend on your surroundings, temperature, how hard you're exercising.

Replenishing that salt loss is one important factor to keeping up the work-out.

In this article we look at energy gels which have sodium and electrolytes so that you're not just refueling your body and muscles, you're getting sodium back in to the body as well.

Why Do You Need Electrolytes

Cramping is a sign of lack of sodium and electrolytes and something that will occur if you don't get the electrolytes and sodium back in to your system.

The last thing you want is to get to this point as you will be unable to continue the activity you're doing.

If you're consuming gels as part of your fuel and nutritional plan then getting electrolytes in the gel at the same time is a good idea. It's no extra work and you can cover your energy requirements and electrolyte needs in a single feed.

With this in mind, below you will find a list of over 100 energy gels which all have some form of sodium and electrolyte and they are ordered by those with the most sodium in one section and those most dense in sodium in another section.

How much sodium will you need? There isn't an answer for this on the internet because sodium loss in sweat has an extreme difference from person to person, some studies showing people lose 200mg/litre of sweat whilst others lose up to 2000mg/litre.

The important thing is to make sure you're getting sodium back in whilst doing an activity and using this list of gels with sodium can help you with that.

We have taken the sodium per serving and added it as the last column and sorted the entire list of energy gels in a descending or so that those with the most sodium are at the top.

As well as the sodium you can find the diet and flavor of each gel. Hopefully with this information you can find the best energy gels for you which have the electrolytes and sodium that you need when exercising.
