An Insurance Plan for your Muscles

When you’re pushing yourself during training and racing, your muscles need a boosted supply of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) to help protect them from damage and to help rebuild. BCAAs are the building blocks of proteins, and your body can only get them from the foods you eat. BCAA Capsules may help maintain mental clarity, promote muscle recovery, and enhance muscle growth while you’re pushing your limits.† Each capsule delivers a 4:1:1 ratio of the three BCAAs (L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine) to help promote muscle recovery along with B Vitamins that can help facilitate amino acid metabolism and energy production during exercise.†Jump to full details

Any Time’s a Good Time to Protect Your Muscles

Taking ROCTANE BCAA Capsules before, during, or after any activity can prevent muscle damage, enhance muscle growth, and maintain mental clarity.†

Branched-Chain Amino Acids (L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine) are the three essential amino acids which can help reduce muscle fatigue during exercise and speed recovery post exercise.† These building blocks of proteins can be found naturally in your daily diet and are essential to maintaining a positive balance between muscle damage and muscle repair.†

May reduce mental fatigue and help decrease muscle damage during exercise

FAQs

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins make up the structure of the body, including muscles. Amino acids are either produced in the body (“nonessential”), or they must be supplied from the diet (“essential”). BCAAs are essential amino acids, meaning they are not made in the body, yet they constitute more than one third of the protein found in human muscle tissue. Rich dietary sources of BCAAs can include dairy, egg, meat, poultry and fish.

Yes! We put BCAAs in all our products with the exception of our Hydration Tabs, ROCTANE Electrolyte, Magnesium and Probiotic Capsules.

Even the most committed athletes may not get enough BCAAs in their regular diet to help delay fatigue during extended exercise. And stopping fatigue during exercise means you can go stronger for longer.

We focus on two types of fatigue that can impact performance – “mental” and “muscular.” BCAA’s delay “mental fatigue” by competing with the amino acid tryptophan which is a precursor to serotonin, and serotonin creates sleepiness. “Muscular fatigue” is delayed because BCAAs are used as an additional energy source during prolonged exercise, when glycogen stores are becoming depleted.

This product is meant for anyone that wants to further support their energy and recovery efforts. As we know, BCAAs act as an additional energy source for the working muscles, has the properties to support muscle recovery, can improve VO2max, boost immunity and help you get more out of your workouts.

This is also a great product for the vegan or vegetarian athlete that cannot consume a whey protein recovery product but would like to get in more BCAAs.

As little as 1500mg can enhance muscle buildup and prevent muscle breakdown. You can take these anytime, however we recommend them primarily after exercise and especially on heavier training days.

Not to worry. Vitamin B is a water-soluble vitamin, so any excess intake will be eliminated in your urine.

Of course! And this will help performance if your nutrition during exercise does not contain BCAA.

Yes, it is safe for children.

Guides

General Recommendations of effort

Helped with Mental aspect as much as Physical

My son loves these. He uses them before training and racing and says he feels more aware. But he also uses them when he's been doing online classes all day and his brain is done before the workouts start. He takes one when he's starting to feel tired and then at workout time he is ready to go.

This stuff works!

I don't know what the science is but I've taken these on long rides (100+ Gravel adventures) and suffered zero cramps throughout the ride. Yes, I'm also eating right and drinking enough water but I think this adds an extra element of muscle care when taken regularly during a ride. I highly recommend giving this a try to anyone training for a big adventure or race or just an off the couch all day sufferfest. #Guforit!

Just Plain Works

I’m a cyclist riding about 140-150 miles a week. Consecutive days on the bike use to be an issue. Not anymore. I started taking two pills before and two after every ride. The very first day I felt stronger and more energetic. I’m totally sold on this stuff!

Great for recovery

My husband is getting into road cycling (within the last 10 months) and is to the point of getting in multi-hour rides a couple times a week (one perk of work from home!). He has really noticed that taking these right after working out has really helped his muscles recover faster. Not sure there is anything else on the market that is close to this affordable price point and that I know is SAFE--- NOT filled with questionable ingredients. You've done it again Gu!
