GlycoDrive Highly Branched Chain Cyclic Dextrin
There’s no question the best source of fuel for hard-working athletes is carbohydrates. Carbs are muscles’ fuel for the aerobic glycolytic and anaerobic ATP-PC energy systems.
GlycoDrive was created to be an unfailing, high-performance source of carbohydrates surrounding intense training. Prior to training, athletes should ingest carbs to ensure proper glycogen stores in the bloodstream and muscle cells. These carbs can be used during training to deliver maximum power and endurance. During long or intense bouts of exercise, glycogen stores can be depleted. To combat the negative eects of waning glycemic levels, carbs can be ingested during workouts to sustain glycogen levels throughout training.
The most opportune time to fuel up with GlycoDrive is immediately following a workout. Post-workout carbs ll the muscles with glycogen and act as a shuttle, transporting amino acids, electrolytes and vitamins directly into muscle cells where recovery begins.
The Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin used in GlycoDrive is the perfect carbohydrate to optimize athletic performance. Its low osmolality and high molecular weight creates faster gastric emptying, thereby allowing faster absorption of nutrients and faster recovery times without discomfort or bloat. It has little eect on insulin secretion, so fat burning can be maximized when consumed prior to or during a workout!
Our DRIVEN NUTRITION athletes demand the best and choose GlycoDrive for their performance carbohydrate needs. Try it yourself and see the dierence!
Simple. It is 100% Highly Branch Chained Cyclic Dextrin which are a specific group type of carbohydrate that are essentially six to eight molecules of dextrose (glucose) bonded together in the shape of a ring. Chemically speaking, cyclic dextrin is not too different in chemical components to maltodextrin. However, maltodextrin is arranged in a linear fashion, and not a ring. This ring structure is what gives cyclic dextrin some benefits you will not find with maltodextrin or other common carbohydrates. Read more…
