From Glucose Polymers
Carbo Plus is our leading complex carbohydrate formula for long-lasting energy and optimal performance. Designed for serious athletes, Carbo Plus provides carbs from granulated medium length complex carbs (glucose polymers) extracted from selected grain sources and maltodextrin. Carbohydrates are your body´s essential energy source, sparing proteins from being used and preventing muscle tissue breakdown. Complex carbohydrates provide your body with a more consistent blood sugar level than simple sugars, which cause the glucose level in your bloodstream to rise and fall rapidly. Research has suggested that at least 50% of your diet should be in the form of complex carbohydrates, especially if you are training at intense levels. No added preservatives, simple sugars, or artificial flavors. With almost zero fat and sodium. Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. The beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
