Roctane Electrolyte Capsules contain multiple essential electrolytes which your body must replenish during endurance activities: sodium, magnesium and chloride. Roctane Electrolyte Capsules help to fill in the gaps with sweat loss that is unique to each athlete. Also included is Ginger Root which can help decrease nausea and Vitamin D and B6.
What's in it?
Electrolytes - There are several reasons to replace electrolytes during exercise. One is to help maintain plasma volume which is depleted by sweating, another to prevent hyponatremia from over-ingestion of fluids during exercise. Sodium is the main electrolyte lost in sweat, and along with magnesium and chloride are the only electrolytes with scientific data supporting the need for replacement during exercise.
Vitamins - Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and bone health. Low levels of vitamin D are associated with deceased exercise performance. Despite hours of training in the sun many athletes are still vitamin D deficient, making this vitamin an important supplement for health and performance. Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin, and has been shown to significantly decrease nausea and vomiting.
Ginger- Ginger can decrease nausea and may boost the rate at which food can be emptied by the stomach. This may help prevent an upset stomach, bloating and nausea during hard training and racing.
How is it different?
Not all athletes sweat at the same rates! Roctane Electrolyte Capsule offers just enough electrolytes to fill in the gaps from sweat loss. Only electrolytes with scientific evidence supporting supplementation during exercise have been included. Athletes don't need to supplement with every available electrolyte during exercise. Additionally, many athletes are not getting adequate amounts of vitamin D, despite a lot of time spent outdoors in the sun. Vitamin D in Roctane Electrolyte Capsule can help to supplement this deficiency. Vitamin B6 and ginger help to prevent nausea. Ginger can also enhance the rate at which stomach contents are emptied. Studies have shown a high prevalence, up to 90%, of gastrointestinal complaints during ultra endurance events.1
How do I use it?
Roctane Electrolyte Capsule can be used before, during, and after exercise. Its recommended intake depends on conditions, terrain, and one's physiology. They can be used at 1-2 capsules/hour whenever electrolytes are needed to combat sweat loss.
Does vitamin D supplementation help exercise performance?
- Vitamin D deficiency is common among athletes. In individuals that are vitamin D deficient, supplementation can improve exercise performance.
Why is vitamin B6 in the capsule?
- Vitamin B6 can help combat that unwanted nausea when athletes push their limits to the max.
Should I take the capsule only during exercise?
- No! Roctane Electrolyte Capsule can be taken anytime you feel the need to replenish or prevent electrolyte losses due to exercise. It can be taken before, during, or after high intensity efforts.
How do I incorporate this Roctane electrolyte capsule with other GU products?
- Some individuals need more electrolytes than others. The athletes that end each workout looking like a salt stick tend to need more electrolytes than others. These athletes can supplement the electrolytes that are already in GU Electrolyte Brew, Roctane Ultra Endurance and gels with 1-2 capsules/hour as needed to help replace electrolytes lost in sweat.
