WHY ATHLETES LOVE ALL THINGS CAFFEINE

WHY ATHLETES LOVE ALL THINGS CAFFEINE

For Athletes, caffeine is more than just a morning pick-me-up. Strategically adding caffeine to your nutrition plan before and during exercise can help keep your mind sharp, decrease perceived effort, boost your endurance, and delay fatigue.

Mental benefits: The mind is a powerful muscle when it comes to endurance sports performance!
Physical benefits: It’s not just in your head…
Okay… But How Much & When? 

Up to 400 mg of caffeine per day is considered safe.* However, caffeine stays in your system even during exercise, so consider skipping the extra caffeine for your evening activities to avoid disrupting your sleep!

COLD BREW COFFEE ROCTANE ENERGY GEL

Cold Brew Coffee, the newest addition to the ROCTANE Energy Gel line, packs in 70mg of caffeine (which is double the amount in other caffeinated ROCTANE Energy Gels) along with the electrolytes and amino acids delivered by all ROCTANE Energy Gels.*

  • The flavour delivers a boost of energy with that bitter yet smooth taste you expect from a refreshing cup of cold brew coffee.
  • As with all our Energy Gels, we recommend eating one five minutes before you start and every 45 minutes along the way. (To avoid over loading on caffeine, we recommend limiting your daily consumption to five Cold Brew Coffee ROCTANE Energy Gels per day.)

            TRY COLD BREW



    *Do not exceed 5 servings of Cold Brew Coffee ROCTANE Energy Gel daily.  Not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, children under 18 years of age, or people sensitive to caffeine.

    Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. Gliadin and glutenin are the two main components of this protein and create the “doughy” texture of bread and pastries. For people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, this protein causes irritation in the small intestine.
