Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel: GU to a Higher Power!

Roctane comes from years of testing scientifically-proven formulas with thousands of elite athletes training for and competing in the most physically-demanding sports in the world. Roctane’s advanced formula amplifies GU’s original Energy Gel recipe and adds new ingredients to boost your chances of success. Now it’s your turn to fill your tank with premium Roctane and compete like a pro.

Roctane Ingredients & Benefits

Roctane takes athletes’ top choice for an energy gel, GU, amplifies the original recipe and then adds new ingredients to boost performance in sustained, high-intensity efforts. Here’s how it’s done:

We start with original GU’s superior mix of complex and simple carbohydrates that provide quick and sustained energy, electrolytes for replenishment and caffeine to tap more power and diminish pain.

From there we increase the amount of histidine, an essential amino acid, to act as a buffer and slow the energy-sapping lactic acid build-up in muscles.

We mix in higher levels of citrates (potassium citrate, sodium citrate, and citric acid) to help speed the conversion of carbohydrates into energy molecules and, like histidine, help mitigate acid build-up.

We also add more of the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine to serve as another fuel source, aid in recovery and help maintain mental focus and reduce fatigue by limiting the central nervous system’s production of serotonin.

Finally, we add a new ingredient, the amino acid complex Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (OKG) which limits the body’s tendency to break down muscle protein tissue during extremely hard training and racing days. OKG keeps you going longer and promotes a speedier recovery.

ARE YOU A GU ROCTANE ATHLETE?

If your idea of training or racing is giving it your all in a multi-hour adventure or you’re competing in multiple racing heats during a day, then Roctane is for you. For all other training and racing, the original GU energy gel will keep you fuelled like a champ.

GU Roctane Fuelling Instructions

Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel packs 100 calories into every packet. It’s an ideal serving size to suck down 15 minutes before training or racing in order to top off your electrolyte and glucose stores, followed by one every 30-45 minutes along the way, washed down with a few sips of fluid.

For optimum results, always drink at least 24-30 ounces of fluid per hour during training and racing.

Exact Roctane intake depends on the intensity of your pursuit and your body weight and fitness level. The fitter you are and the more efficient your metabolism, the more Roctane you can eat each hour, up to approximately 340 calories every 60 minutes.

Combine Roctane with original GU Energy Gel and GU20 Sports Drink for the ultimate in sports hydration and fuelling. Take one gel 15 minutes before training or competition and then one gel every 30-45 minutes during exercise. Drink GU20 throughout.
