So I was buying Gu2O today. Never tried any energy drinks, except gatorade which I didn't like (putting aside the discussion whether Gatorade is an energy drink). Anyway I saw others like Endurox, Accelerate, Clif one. All of them had at least 40% of sugars for carbohydrates. Everything I heard and read says refined sugar is not all that good for you. So why all these drinks have so much of it? On the other hand Gu2O has very little sugars that make up it's carbonhydrates. So at least to me from that perspective Gu2O is better. Am I missing something?
On a down side it doesn't have protein. I also tried to find HEED, but couldn't.
