GU Roctane Energy Gels: STRAWBERRY KIWI Flavour

GU Strawberry Kiwi gel is that crisp, juicy flavor you crave in the summer. It’s not only a perfect blend of kiwi and strawberry essences, but also the perfect blends of sweet and tart. Reach for it when you want to be transported to a tropical paradise during your next run, ride, or adventure.

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.

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.

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.

Roctane Gels should be consumed 15 minutes before activity and then every 45 minutes throughout the duration of activity. Hydrate along the way.

5 of 5 GU Roctane September 22, 2018
Reviewer: William Moore from Irvine, North Ayrshire United Kingdom  
Gu roctane... Does what it sys on the label.... Gives you the energy when it's needed.... I run and found that if I take one about every 45minutes into a 10k or half marathon run I don't feel muscle fatigue as such. Prompt delivery and really well and safe ackaging to protect the order. Will be buying this again from this outlet.
