When do energy gels begin to work?
Should I go on ? and fancy a go yourself
These are just some I had lying around the place

Why would google not give links ? Unless its a big conspiracy. Clearly Dave and Rafiki are in on it too !
I'm trying for a degree in googling
In her defense, google or bing are not that good at finding research papers. Although Dave is obviously masterful in its use!!
Shelly - if you use Google Scholar, it'll give you a lot of good reference material
Maybe I misunderstood Shelly, and her first language isn't English. Joyful Shelly didn't compute with:

I am looking for research articles on when and how Energy Gels work? I want to know if they work in a few minutes or in 30 mins.
Where are you getting your information? I am looking for proof. I want data. Where is the research?
This wasn't you finest moment in introducing yourself, and then pleasantly asking for help.

Too many variables anyway, some one FB's or my size can metabolise a beer quicker than a midget, I expect the same is true for a gel..
How long does it take you to digest a midget?
depends if it's been cut into pieces or not - if swallowed whole, can take some time
I find gels work best if I actually take them. There's one on the table in front of me and I can't feel a thing.
It takes around 30minutes for carbohydrate to be absorbed into the blood stream. It is important that you plan ahead when you will take it as you should take it before fatigue sets in.
Hope this helps
