FAQs

Created to supplement additional electrolyte replacement needs, GU ROCTANE Electrolyte Capsules provide added electrolyte support on top of our hydration-drink products.

Each bottle includes 50 capsules that are packed with electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, chloride) to aid in hydration by maintaining water balance and plasma volume.

Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and bone health. Take GU ROCTANE Electrolyte Capsules before, during, or after exercise to replenish electrolyte levels from any energy-demanding activity resulting in sweat loss.

If you’re pushing yourself in hot or humid conditions, it’s easy to become dehydrated. When you’re dehydrated, your performance suffers, you become fatigued faster, and you can get cramps or headaches.

Vitamin D deficiency is common among athletes. In individuals that are vitamin D deficient, supplementation can improve exercise performance.

Vitamin B6 can help combat that unwanted nausea when athletes push their limits to the max.

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.

There is no data to support potassium supplementation during exercise. Blood potassium concentration does not change or increase during exercise, as potassium is released from muscle contraction. The increase in potassium during exercise is less dramatic as an athlete becomes more trained, which may help prevent fatigue and has been associated with elevated potassium concentration (potentially due to alterations in membrane depolarization). Several studies have even shown that potassium ingestion during exercise doesn’t change blood potassium concentration. For these reasons, potassium is not included in the ROCTANE Electrolyte Capsule.

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 gels with 1-2 capsules/hour as needed to help replace electrolytes lost in sweat.

ROCTANE Electrolyte Capsules help replace what you lose when you sweat to keep you feeling strong and feeling good. Take 1-2 capsules per hour during high-intensity activity and consume with at least 3-4 oz of water.

The Best!!!

Roctane electrolytes saved me from the brutal South Carolina summer this year. My running was suffering badly and I couldn't figure out why and I gave these a try a voile! I could make it through my runs again. I love the added ginger powder. It's really makes a big difference in settling a sensitive tummy.

Effective and easy electrolyte solution

I am a wildlife biologist who works around the globe on the conservation of bats. Yep, you read right, bats. More specifically, I work with cave roosting species. The environments I travel to and work in range from 14,000' to below sea level (Death Valley, CA). From the equatorial tropics of the South Pacific to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, to the Atacama in Peru, I've spent thousands of hours underground and even more time hiking around to get to work sites. In my free time its canyoneering, trail running, hiking, backpacking, and kayaking. Over the past 4 years, I have come to rely on the GU Roctane electrolyte pills to keep my body balanced during strenuous exercise. These pills are compact, light, durable, and are easy to pack along. I have found that I perform better in warm to hot conditions when using them. Coupled with plain water these pills effectively meet my needs. No funny flavors to get tired of after 1,000 miles of runs, no mess or your bottles or hydration bladders. Simple, easy, effective; my go to electrolyte supplement when at work and at play!
