Keep your glycogen stores stoked and your muscles firing happily with GU Roctane Ultra Energy Gel. The proven combination of glucose and fructose is the most easily and rapidly absorbed form of carbohydrate. And, a high electrolyte content is just what your legs crave to fire properly, while 35mg of caffeine stokes your central nervous system, increasing the release of free fatty acids into your bloodstream, and further sparing your limited glycogen stores. Branched-chain amino acids and ornithine speed recovery and reduce muscle damage, histidine buffers against acidic byproduct, and of course the delicious flavors go down easy.
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system—the body's communication line between brain and muscle. Through this stimulation, higher power can be attained for longer periods of time. Caffeine has also been shown to increase the flow of free fatty acids in the bloodstream, possibly sparing the body’s limited glycogen stores by burning fatty acids in place of glycogen.
