THE ROCTANE DIFFERENCE - WHEN IT’S TIME TO GET SERIOUS

THE ROCTANE DIFFERENCE - WHEN IT’S TIME TO GET SERIOUS

We get asked all the time "What does ROCTANE mean?" It means these are designed for high-intensity and long-duration activities just like the IRONMAN.

3X AMINO ACIDS

3X SODIUM

+ BETA ALANINE & TAURINE

  • Sodium is the primary electrolyte you lose when you sweat and it helps you hydrate. Electrolytes help maintain fluid balance, prevent dehydration, and are also essential for muscle contractions.
  • Branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine and isoleucine) protect lean muscle and reduce mental fatigue. BCAAs are metabolised in the muscle and decrease the breakdown of muscle tissue during and after exercise. Leucine is the most important amino acid for initiating protein synthesis, the process through which your muscles rebuild and get stronger.
  • Beta-alanine is an amino acid that helps promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine,
    which can reduce acidity levels in muscles and delay the onset of fatigue.
  • Taurine is an amino acid that is found in high concentrations in the heart and helps promote heart
    contractility and improve cardiac output during long exercise sessions.

PLUS ENERGY FROM CARBOHYDRATES! Just like our Energy Gels, ROCTANE Energy Gels deliver 100-calories from easily digestible carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to maximise carbohydrate absorption and utilisation while diminishing stomach distress.

DON’T FORGET THE CAFFEINE. Not all ROCTANE Energy Gel flavours include caffeine, but those that do deliver 35 mg of caffeine, which can stimulate your central nervous system and decrease perception of pain or effort during exercise. It also enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration. Caffeine can help delay fatigue by mobilising fat for fuel, which spares precious glycogen stores.

Plus with multiple flavour options, you will never get bored...
