When we set out to provide our athletes and customers with designer carb there were lots of options to look at. There were the usual suspects Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Waxy Maize and other starches. All had their benefits but we have always been picky and kept looking for one product with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks.
We wanted something, which mixed easily but also had great performance and recovery benefits. Finally with much anticipation we landed on the perfect carbohydrate called Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin. Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin is is the patented ingredient in GlycoDrive is a special form of carbohydrate, which like some Waxy Maize Starches has a very high, but specific molecular weight range.
However unlike Waxy Maize starches, GlycoDrive mixes with ease. If it can’t mix easily in a shaker bottle with water and protein, how well is it going to absorb in your body, which is about 60% water? Secondly GlycoDrive has an ultra low osmolality, which means it doesn’t sit in your stomach like other Maltodextrin and Dextrose based products. The benefit is even when you take it right before or during training, it is much less likely to give stomach cramps, bloat or discomfort.
Lastly the patented ingredient in GlycoDrive has been shown to increase performance better than other forms of carbohydrates. The excellent controlled effect on insulin levels, give greater potential body composition changes as well as better glycogen replenishing speeding recovery.
Carbohydrates have a wealth of uses and benefits in sports and fitness. We wanted to provide you with the best and latest innovation in performance carbohydrates. GlycoDrive is the answer to your performance carbohydrate needs, allowing you to push your self harder and longer through WOD’s as well as competitions.
