The reward for completing the Citadel: Medical Supplies is either increased Medi-gel capacity or enhanced Medi-gel depending on which doctor is stationed on Normandy.

The increased capacity is self-explanatory. However, I do not understand what "enhancement" has been given to the enhanced Medi-gel. Is it simply that the amount of health restored through the use Medi-gel has been increased? What exactly puts the "enhanced" in "enhanced Medi-gel"?

The enhanced medi-gel heals more per use, how much your gel heals is determined by what difficulty you're playing on. So this would be more useful if you're on a higher difficulty than if you were on an easy one.

The medi-gel enhancement basically DOUBLES your current medi-gel count, but the change is very subtle and easy-to-miss.

If you have 4 medi-gels after the enhancement, then using the medi-gel once will not reduce the number to 3 medi-gels on the power-wheel. You'll have to use it a second time for the number of medi-gels on your power-wheel to decrease to 3 medi-gels.

This is based on me playing the 360 version.

You should use italics or bold for emphasis instead of caps. Otherwise, nice first answer. :) – NightExcessive Apr 19 '13 at 0:59

As far as i know it makes your Medi-Gel heal one more bar of health per use.
