Created for high-intensity and demanding activity, GU Roctane Energy Drink Mix packs even more electrolytes and carbohydrates than GU Hydration Drink Mix. The 250-calorie serving contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids hydration by maintaining water balance. The amino acid taurine helps maintain heart contractility and improve cardiac output during long exercise sessions, while the amino acid beta-alanine helps promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine.
Roctane Energy Drink Mix delivers:
- Branched-Chain Amino Acids that prevent mental fatigue and reduce muscle damage
- Beta-Alanine to help buffer acidity levels in your muscles to prevent soreness and reduce muscle fatigue
- Taurine to support your heart contractility and cardio output during long exercise sessions
- Some flavours contain 35mg of caffeine to help improve focus and decrease perceived exertion
