GU Roctane Energy Gels: BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE Flavour

Created for demanding training and competition, GU Roctane Energy Gel stands out from original GU Energy Gel with more sodium, an electrolyte that aids in hydration, and even more branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) that reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage than our original GU Energy Gel. The amino acid beta-alanine helps promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine, while ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate helps promote muscle repair. The 100-calorie packets contain carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress.

WHEN SHOULD I USE GU ROCTANE GELS?
GU Roctane Energy Gel was designed to help provide nutritional support for prolonged exercise. Therefore, you will find Roctane Energy Gel especially beneficial during exercise which will require extra recovery time, and where you need help with preventing fatigue, increasing concentration, focus, and decreasing perceived effort. So when you are going big – use Roctane Energy Gel. During a more typical workout where you looking mainly for good tasting, easy to consume calories with added electrolytes – use original GU Energy Gel.

HOW WILL THE ADDED AMINO ACIDS AND ELECTROLYTES IN GU ROCTANE GELS HELP ME?
Roctane contains more sodium than the original GU Energy Gel. Sodium is the main electrolyte lost in sweat, and supplementation with sodium can help prevent cramping as well as minimize the chances of hyponatremia (low blood sodium from drinking too much plain water). The amino acids in Roctane Energy Gel serve several important functions, including acting as a fuel source for working muscle, and helping promote muscle recovery following exercise. Importantly, the amino acids in Roctane Energy Gel are branched chain amino acids that have been shown to help prevent central fatigue by competing with tryptophan for transport across the blood brain barrier. So the electrolytes and amino acids in Roctane gel can help increase performance above and beyond what is possible with the original GU Energy Gel alone.

HOW DO I USE IT?
Roctane Gels should be consumed 15 minutes before activity and then every 45 minutes throughout the duration of activity. Hydrate along the way.

Very Slow delivery October 24, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Newcastle, United Kingdom  
My order stated 1-2 days working days for 1st class delivery.  It actually arrived  10 days after I placed the order by which time I had travelled to Chicago, sourced some alternative energy gels, ran the marathon and returned home to the UK.

Taste no, effect yes. August 25, 2014
Reviewer: Jonas W from Sala, Sweden Sweden  
I like the effect of the Roctane, I believe it works. I don´t like the taste, it´s not a favorite of mine.

An alternative gel April 18, 2014
Reviewer: Peter Bystrup from Holte, . Denmark  
The taste is a bit strong and has hint of caffein like almost all caffeinated products. Otherwise the thick viscosity was a bit surprising to me first but I really like it since there is no risk of spilling half the gel all over yourself. It can be a bit hard to get everything out of the package though.

good, might be too strong the flavour for me July 25, 2013
Reviewer: Damian the runner from windsor, berkshire United Kingdom  
The taste is quite strong, combine with the caffeine it might be too much.
But all depends about the stomach, for me the best are the GU chocolate and mint, no coffee.
