Carbohydrates are the main source of fuel for skeletal muscles, both during aerobic and anaerobic training. Depending on the timing of your carbohydrate meal before a workout, they may increase exercise capacity, increase the duration of training, speed up glycogen resynthesis and promote post-workout recovery. Extra carbohydrates may accelerate the body’s recovery and promote muscle growth. When they are consumed before or during a strenuous exercise session, they provide the body with energy and inhibit the release of energy in tissues (catabolism).
Our store offers a variety of carb blends and supplements with one source of glucose, e.g. dextrose and waxy maize. The range of products includes supplements with minerals, which maintain water-electrolyte balance, and vitamins, encouraging healthy functioning of the body. Persons who want to maintain muscle mass can pick over carbohydrate supplements which are fortified with amino acids that protect against muscle catabolism and help build muscle mass. Products are recommended especially to individuals who do long workouts or athletes who perform high-intensity training. Carbohydrate blends are perfect for long-distance runners, cyclists and those who train martial arts because strenuous exercise increases the utilisation of glucose as a source of energy.
