What is Dextrose?
HSN Raw Series Dextrose is a type of carbohydrate of high glycemic index that increases energy production. It's perfect to take in the most energy demanding moments like the post-workout period.
Dextrose is a form of glycose derived from starches, and is often used as an energy source to load glycogen stores within the peri-workout period.
Dextrose has a high glycemic index, which provokes a large insulin release (insulin peak). Insulin is a poerful anabolic hormone, which helps introduce nutrients into the cell circulating in the bloodstream.
Because of this, dextrose is usually combined with other elements such as creatine, BCAA's and even protein, resulting in truly remarkable results when the goal is muscle mass build-up.
However, dextrose can also be useful for those who keep a high sporting performance and require an energy shot.
Who can benefit from Dextrose?
Athletes looking to keep normal blood sugar levels during prolonged exercise, delaying fatigue and maintaining performance.
Ideal to take after training with a protein shake, since dextrose stimulates the insulin release, replenishes spent glycogen and enhances protein synthesis.
