Intra-Carb as a tasty, convenient and versatile blend of three carbohydrate sources, designed to be easy on your gut, and produce a rapid, but sustained elevation of blood glucose. Intra-Carb is a great compliment to our Recovery (intra-workout) product when you want to up the ante on your peri-workout carbohydrate intake. On the other hand, if convenience or simply the ease of drinking your carbs (when really trying to pack in the calories) suits you, Intra-Carb can be used any time of the day to engineer both rapid and sustained entry of glucose into your blood.
The secret to Intra-Carb’s powerful, but long-lasting, easy-on-the-gut punch comes from the synergy of the three carbohydrate sources we’ve combined.
Intra Carbs Carbohydrate Synergy
Intra-Carb contains highly branched cyclic dextrin (as 10 grams of Cyclic Dextrin®) to enhance gastric emptying1 and minimize gastrointestinal discomfort during exercise [including burping and gas, which your training partner benefit will appreciate2]. By more rapidly ushering glucose from the stomach3,4 to the small intestine and blood stream5, Cyclic Dextrin® can improve performance6-8, and maintain higher glycogen levels during exercise9, giving you a head start on recovering for your next workout10.
To ensure a sustained, crash-free elevation of blood glucose during your workout or whenever you’ve consumed Intra-Carb, we’ve also included 5 grams of Isomaltulose (as Palatinose®) in Intra-Carb. Palatinose is a disaccharide that produces a steady rise blood glucose, but at a baseline level much lower than even table sugar11.
Lastly, we’ve included a small amount of Dextrose (glucose), the carbohydrate source commonly used as the standard for determining glycemic index (GI)12. [The GI of dextrose is higher than essentially all kinds of rice products, for instance13.] Dextrose’s rapid entry into the blood stream will promote insulin release14, so including a small amount in Intra-Carb favors the positive balance of skeletal muscle protein synthesis and breakdown we all seek, as long as you’ve been diligent enough to consume protein with your carbs15,16.
