GU Energy - Roctane Ultra Endurance With Caffeine Canister Tropical - 780 Grams (1.72lbs)
Roctane Energy Drink is a carbohydrate intensive energy drink for ultra distance and intense efforts. It contains the critical carbs and electrolyte replenishment that endurance athletes need to compete at high levels. And it comes in a super light tasting, easy to mix formula for fueling serious efforts. It also contains caffeine, taurine, and beta-alanine to help increase performance. There’s a lot in there for days when a lot’s going on…
What’s in it?
Each serving contains 240 calories of complex and simple carbs that is optimized for rapid absorption and energy accessibility. Key electrolytes such as sodium and potassium help with hydration. Here’s a breakdown of Roctane Energy Drink’s other key performance ingredients:
- Ideal carbohydrate ratio
Unique ratio of glucose and fructose are podium-proven to better maintain glycogen levels than glucose or fructose alone
Can help maintain heart & muscle performance during prolonged exercise which would otherwise lead to fatigue and decreased performance
- Caffeine (except grape flavor)
Can stimulate the central nervous system and reduce pain perception leading to prolonged exercise, delayed fatigue and increased performance
Supplements dietary beta-alanine to improve muscle buffering capacity and performance during intense efforts
- Branch Chain Amino Acids (Leucine, Valine, Isoleucine)
Shown to serve as an additional fuel source (when taken with carbohydrates), reduce muscle damage, enhance recovery and delay fatigue – all critical during intense or long efforts
- Histidine Amino Acid
helps to promote buffer capacity of muscles
How is it different?
Does anybody actually like eating chalk? No, they don’t, especially endurance athletes who are hungry and need performance calories. Then why do so many drinks on the market taste “chalky”? We believe athletes deserve, and appreciate a carbohydrate intensive, electrolyte packed energy drink that performs the way it should and tastes good. Enter Roctane Energy Drink.
- Consistency - it mixes easily and isn’t chalky like most calorie dense drinks on the market
- Taste - it’s light- you’ll be surprised there are 240 calories in there
- Performance - key ingredients are specifically designed for long and intense endeavors
How can I use Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink with Roctane Gel?
If you already use Roctane gel, you can substitute some Roctane gel for Roctane energy drink. This will help tailor energy intake to your needs and provide the beneficial ingredients found in both the gel and drink. While many ingredients are similar in the two products (carbohydrates, branched chain amino acids, histidine, and caffeine) each has unique ingredients which may also help improve performance (gel – OKG for muscle recovery, vitamin E as an antioxidant; drink – taurine to help heart and muscle function, beta-alanine to help increase muscle buffering capacity). Therefore, using both products will help provide every nutritional advantage possible to athletes who demand the best from themselves and their nutrition. For many athletes, all they may need during prolonged exercise is one 21oz bottle of Roctane drink and 1 Roctane gel per hour for 340 calories and extra nutritional support to maximize performance.
