CARB FUEL is Maltodextrin, a polysaccharide carbohydrate, that although technically a complex carbohydrate because of its low sugar content, it has a higher glycaemic index (G.I 135) than sucrose (G.I 65), even though it is derived from starch and therefore because it has a high glycaemic load, it actually works.
CARB FUEL is a carbohydrate with a high glycaemic index that passes through the gut rapidly and easily. CARB FUEL has an excellent application for all athletes and due to its rapid uptake, it is perfect for restoring glycogen reserves both pre, during and post-exercise.
CARB FUEL is designed for individuals that exercise with intensity. All athletes require energy to perform at their best. In particular, bodybuilders and strength athletes need adequate muscle glycogen stores. These athletes directly utilise more muscle glycogen stores and besides before and during training, are particularly dependent on post-training carbohydrates to restore an anabolic environment, reduce muscle breakdown and aid recovery. The importance of post-exercise glycogen replacement cannot be emphasised enough. In order to yield the best results from your hard training you must ensure your glycogen stores are sufficient to allow the muscle to perform at its optimal level, and in order to restore itself and recover, it needs the glycogen replenished as a priority. An additional great benefit to a fast-absorbing glycogen source is the timed production of insulin which unlocks the cell and allows key nutrients to enter, which in turn promotes recovery.
Maltodextrin works very well as a primary carbohydrate in energy drinks. Additionally, maltodextrin has a low osmolality which allows it to empty from the gut faster – another reason why it is an effective carbohydrate to consume while exercising. Because Maltodextrin doesn’t use much water during digestion, it won’t cause dehydration and aids significantly in anaerobic exercise.
