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.

If your idea of training or racing is giving it your all in a
multi-hour adventure or youre 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 fueled

Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel packs 100 calories into every packet. Its 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

and GU Recovery Brew for the ultimate in sports hydration, fueling and
recovery. Take one gel 15 minutes before training or competition and
then one gel every 30-45 minutes during exercise. Drink Electrolyte Brew

This product is OK but not great. I use to take a couple for my long runs but I can't say I love them. For me they are too sweet and thick, in the past I always needed water to swallowed!
Perfect for the long runs

I was a big user of regular GU's, but these are even better for the long runs. I tend to sweat a lot when I run and the added supplements in the Roctane GU's really help keep my energy up. I highly recommend for anyone who tends to sweat a lot.
