FLAVOR SCIENCE

Blueberry Pomegranate blends two unique berry essences into one smooth flavor. (Fun fact: Pomegranates are technically berries!) Called Blue Pom for short, it is sweet, floral and fruity. Tastes like a favorite jam, works like a ROCTANE Energy Gel. This Energy Gel flavor has been so well-received that we also made it into an Energy Chew flavor.

THE ROCTANE DIFFERENCE

  • Amped up ingredients for tough efforts
    When you're pushing your limits, you need an energy source that can keep up. Roctane Energy Gels deliver more of the key nutrients you need to feel strong when the going gets tough. So, what's in them?
  • More sodium to replace what you lose through sweat
    On hot or humid days, or when you're just going all out, it's important to stay on top of your electrolyte intake. Roctane Energy Gels have up to 3x more sodium than our Original Gels.
  • Extra amino acids
    The Roctane BCAA blend contains Taurine, which can help maintain heart contractility and improve cardiac output during long exercise sessions. We also include beta-alanine, which can help promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine, which can help delay the onset of fatigue during high-intensity efforts.

SUGGESTED USE GUIDE

0-1 Hours Of Effort

When you're exercising for an hour or less, it's important to start your workout well-hydrated and energized. Five minutes before your activity, top off your energy stores with one serving of Roctane Energy Gel. It's always best to take a few sips of water to help your body process your fuel.

1-2 Hours of Effort

When you're exercising for longer than an hour, it's important to refuel along the way. Aim to eat an Energy Gel every 30-45 minutes to keep going strong, and be sure to hydrate while taking gels to help your body efficiently process your fuel.

2-3 Hours Of Effort

As you increase exercise duration, your body needs more. Roctane Energy Gels contain up to 3x the sodium and BCAAs of our Original Energy Gels. Depending on heat and humidity, as well as exercise intensity, you can supplement your Energy Gels with Hydration Tabs for electrolyte replacement, or Roctane Energy Drink for energy and hydration in one.

3+ Hours Of Effort

During really long efforts, it's impossible to replace everything you're burning, but you can maximize your performance by eating as much as your body can comfortably process. Boost your BCAA consumption with Roctane BCAA Capsules or Roctane Drink Mix, which will help protect your muscles as you go longer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS ROCTANE ENERGY GEL DIFFERENT?

A ROCTANE Energy Gel contains 3x the amino acids and 2-3x the electrolytes compared to our original Energy Gels. They also contain the amino acids taurine (to help maintain heart contractility and improve cardiac output during long exercise sessions) and beta-alanine (to help buffer muscle acidity during intense efforts).

HOW LONG DOES AN ENERGY GEL TAKE TO WORK?

Energy gels start to work right away! The maltodextrin converts quickly into an energy molecule that your muscles can tap within minutes, while the fructose takes several minutes longer. Because of this delay, your muscles enjoy a steady stream of energy instead of one gigantic sugar rush and a corresponding crash.

WHY DO ROCTANE ENERGY GELS AND ORIGINAL ENERGY GELS HAVE THE SAME NUMBER OF CALORIES?

You'll find the same number of calories in our Roctane and GU Energy Gels because this allows you to fuel more efficiently without overloading your system with too many calories at once. During exercise, blood flow is directed to working muscles and away from the digestive tract, which increases the risk of GI distress if you try to consume too many calories--or the wrong type of calories--all at once. The 100-calorie serving size allows you to take in smaller, more frequent amounts of energy without causing gut discomfort. Aim for 200-300 calories per hour of activity and remember to hydrate along the way.

CAN I USE ROCTANE ENERGY GELS WITH ROCTANE ENERGY DRINK?

You can use Roctane Energy Gels and Roctane Energy Drink Mix together, keeping in mind that the body can effectively process about 300-400 calories per hour during exercise. Many athletes consume one serving of Roctane Energy Drink Mix plus one or two gels per hour. Everyone is different, so be sure to find what works best for you individually.

WHEN SHOULD I CHOOSE TO USE ROCTANE ENERGY GELS?

While there's no harm in using ROCTANE Energy Gels for every workout, they were specifically designed to provide additional nutritional support for prolonged and/or intense exercise. Therefore, you will find ROCTANE Energy Gels especially beneficial during exercise which requires extra recovery time and/or where you need help with preventing fatigue, increasing concentration and focus, and decreasing perceived effort.
