GU Roctane Energy Drink Mix
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 was specifically formulated for the demands of prolonged, ultra-endurance exercise. Specifically, events lasting 4+ hours. The drink is calorically dense, since consuming enough calories during these types of events can be a challenge. Caffeine is included to increase mental acuity, increase performance, and decrease perceived effort – all of which tend to go south during prolonged efforts. Taurine is included to help combat heart and skeletal muscle fatigue – as it has been shown to help increase contractility – which is especially important during long efforts where fatigue management is a big issue. The addition of beta-alanine and histidine help buffer acid caused by going over lactate threshold, and amino acids help prevent muscle damage and aid with muscle recovery.
While the drink was formulated for the demands of ultra-endurance exercise, this drink may be particularly useful during intense workouts as well such as a workout where an athlete will be performing 4 x 15’ threshold repeats for example. This kind of intense effort is one where caffeine may increase concentration and help the athlete push through the entire workout. Additionally, this type of workout is very intense and it can be a challenge to consume enough calories – making an energy dense drink beneficial and efficient. Combine that with increased buffering capacity and helping to speed recovery, the Roctane Energy Drink Mix may ergogenically benefit many athletes during intense workouts.
