GU Roctane 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.
Caffeine has been shown in many studies to increase exercise performance. Whether the performance task was short or long – caffeine helps athletes perform at their best. It can help increase performance by decreasing perceived effort as well as helping athletes maintain focus and concentration.
