GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel is a re-engineered formulation of the GU you already know and love. It's made for the extreme needs of elite athletes. How is it different? Roctane is GU, plus or minus some key ingredients. It packs the same calorie punch as GU and features their blend of complex and simple carbs for steady power production, electrolytes for proper water balance, and caffeine to tap into late-race muscle reserves. It lacks the vitamins C and E. Instead, what you'll get from Roctane is added amino acids to slow lactic acid production, serve as fuel, aid recovery from hard efforts, and mitigate fuzzy-headed weariness. Also, the addition of OKG, an amino acid complex that mitigates catabolic effects that break down muscle tissue, helps to minimize fatigue and muscle damage during repeated days of hard efforts. GU Roctane is available in Blueberry Pomegranate, Cherry Lime, Pineapple, and Vanilla Orange. Sold in a box with 24 individual packets.
Roctane is great for when you are about to hit a wall and need a fatty pick-me-up. Caffeine for a jolt of energy and nice blend of amino acids for recovery, overall a great product.
The Island Nectars flavor is fantastic.
I can't speak for the products usefulness but this stuff taste nasty, The kinda nasty that makes you think, 'aww crap, I ordered a whole box of these?!' We received a donation from them, much appreciated GU, for our event and we all tried them out, oh boy I have some regrets in life and that has got to be in the top 10. I don't do Caffeine before trying to perform cause I don't like the crash so this product isn't for me, you may have a different opinion.
I like the taste of the blueberry pomegranate version but its hard to justify at the price. Its on the thicker side of gels. No stomach problems for me. 3 out of 5 stars really b/c of price
