Dextrose is the most effective and cost-efficient post-workout carbohydrate available. After workouts, a fast-digesting (high-glycemic) carb is one of the most critical nutrients to ingest. Fast carbs are necessary to replenish the muscle glycogen that you burned during the workout as quickly as possible.
Research confirms that working out for as little as 30 minutes can deplete muscle glycogen levels by more than 40%. Intense workouts lasting 60-90 minutes would deplete muscle glycogen levels considerably more. When carbs are consumed immediately postworkout, a supercompensation of muscle glycogen stores is possible. In fact, delaying carb consumption by just 2 hours has been shown to reduce the rate of glycogen replenishment by 50%.
Another benefit of high-glcyemic carbs is the insulin spike that they deliver within a normal range. This helps maximize the uptake of creatine and carnitine (included in Post JYM Active Ingredients Matrix) by the muscle cells.
Dextrose is one of the fastest-digesting carbohydrates you can consume. It’s essentially glucose (what blood sugar is) and therefore needs no digesting and is absorbed by the body almost immediately.
HOW TO TAKE?
- Mix 1 scoop into 600ml of water within 30 minutes after workouts
- For endurance athletes, mixing one to two scoops in water can be used to sip on during prolonged exercise for energy and hydration
