100% PURE MALTODEXTRIN - SUSTAINED ENERGY
Carbohydrates provide the best and most readily available source of energy for your body during intense training or competition and are vital for keeping your muscles and mind operating at peak performance. Just as recovery and muscle repair are important, carbohydrate intake ensures that event fatigue does not set in. SSD’S Maltodextrin is free from added sugars, artificial sweeteners, flavours, thickeners & stabilizers
Maltodextrin is a natural complex carbohydrate derived from corn starch. Consisting of long chains of glucose polymers, Maltodextrin is digested over a period of time, slowly releasing glucose into the blood stream. As a result there is no steep rise or fall in blood sugar levels. Maltodextrin is not a simple sugar (dextrose, fructose, sucrose, table sugar, etc) so it does not behave like a simple sugar.
Maltodextrin has a pleasant, mildly sweet taste & is highly soluble so it can be incorporated into other foods to increase their energy value without affecting taste or increasing bulk. This is particularly useful for people who need sustained energy but don’t want to feel full or for people with poor appetites who find it hard to gain weight.
The idea here is to super saturate glycogen levels so that the body never has to dip into protein for energy production. The higher the level of carbs in the body, the more likely you are going to remain in an anabolic environment. Carbs also play a role in the release of insulin. As you know, insulin is the body's most potent anabolic hormone. In short, the release of insulin is required to promote an anabolic environment, and carbs help by releasing insulin.
