It is more potent, more readily absorbed and more easily digestible than any other brand. Designed for serious athletes Carbo Plus fuels your body with the purest and most premium complex carbohydrates available (consisting of granulated medium length complex carbohydrates (glucose polymers) extracted from selected grain sources and maltodextrin) - without any added sweeteners, preservatives, simple sugars or artificial flavors.
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 shown that at least 50% of your diet should be in the form of complex carbohydrates, especially if you are training at intense levels. Carbo Plus fuels you body with glucose polymers, a direct precursor for glycogen synthesis in muscles. This is the most important source of energy to your muscles during strenuous exercise. By training with Carbo Plus you are allowing maximum replenishment of glycogen in your muscle and liver - leading to enhanced performance, faster muscle recovery and higher endurance levels.
The level of complex carbohydrates you consume directly affects your body's glycogen stores. A higher glycogen store allows your body to work harder and longer before reaching exhaustion. Carbo Plus is efficiently stored by the body and used to generate energy-rich ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the actual fuel used by the body to make your muscles work. Increasing your body's glucose levels with Carbo Plus increased the usable forms of available ATP, allowing increased duration of muscular strength and stamina. Carbo Plus is quick to use and easily mixes with any beverage. With almost zero fat and sodium. Carbo Plus fuels your body with the premium carbohydrates needed for increased energy and endurance. Carbo Plus is the ultimate carbohydrate source.
