With an advanced formula, GU Roctane Energy Gel amplifies the original GU Energy Gel’s recipe and adds new ingredients to further boost your performance in sustained, high-intensity efforts. Adding a new ingredient, the amino acid complex Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (OKG) 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. Simple, fast and more effective than ever. Kosher and gluten-free. An increased amount of histidine, an essential amino acid, acts as a buffer and slows the energy-sapping lactic acid build-up in muscles. Higher levels of citrates (potassium citrate, sodium citrate, and citric acid) help speed the conversion of carbohydrates into energy molecules and, like histidine, help mitigate acid build-up. More of the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine 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. Pour 3-5 servings of GU Roctane Energy Gel into a hand-held gel flask. Consume one serving 5 minutes before and one every 45 minutes during activity, or consume small, but frequent amounts from the flask throughout activity..
