Dextrose is ideal whenever a fast and reliable source of energy is needed by the body. It also allows your body to replace used glycogen stores fast, provides an immediate release of energy and is widely considered one of the best post workout, high GI carbohydrates on the market.
DEXTROSE HIGH ENERGY
Dextrose is a simple carbohydrate sugar. Dextrose is actually a type of glucose, which is a monosaccharide used by nearly every living organism as a source of energy. The primary function of this carbohydrate is the production of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which is the main energy source for the body’s cells. Dextrose (and in turn Glucose) is the majority fuel source for the brain, with low levels associated with negative effects on mental processes. The fine texture of Dextrose makes it ideal for a wide range of applications. As a simple sugar, it is well-tolerated by most individuals. From an athletic performance perspective, Dextrose can help ensure muscle cells are provided the hit of nutrients they need to recover, repair and replenish.
FAST REPLENISHMENT WITH TPW™ DEXTROSE
You need to rapidly feed the muscles that are exhausted and starved of nutrients following training for them to repair and regrow. This is exactly why both strength and endurance athletes will add the rapidly absorbing Dextrose to their whey protein shake. Studies show adding a high GI carbohydrate such as Dextrose to your post workout formula can dramatically help to shuttle the protein and amino acids to the muscles, replenish muscle glycogen and ultimately kick-start the entire growth and recovery process.
When looking to add a carbohydrate source to your shake, Dextrose remains one of the best value, most basic and most scientific proven ways to do this. This is because it will not only help the body meet its macro nutritional needs (protein, carbs and fats) but Dextrose will also help the delivery of other nutrients to the muscles. Ultimately Dextrose is a carbohydrate that should be added to every post workout shake if your goal is to build quality, lean muscle.
