Maltodextrin - GymBeam
Maltodextrin consists of a complex carbohydrates that are rapidly digested in the digestive tract. Therefore it does not cause any digestive problems and is a an ideal source of quick-release energy. It has a high glycemic index and rapidly replenishes the depleted muscle glycogen supplies.
Maltodextrin: suitable for each workout as an energy source, that optimally supplements glycogen
Maltodextrin is an oligosaccharide that is in the world of nutritional supplements known as a preferred energy source for athletes and physically active people, but also as a food ingredient. It is created by connecting molecules of glucose (dextrose), a simple sugar that serves as the main source of energy for the human body. Maltodextrin usually consists of three to seventeen glucose units, and is prepared by enzymatic treatment of starch, which provides an excellent source of rapidly absorbable energy.
GymBeam Maltodextrin is a special blend of carbs that are broken down into glucose at the gastrointestinal tract, and because of that it doesn't cause any digestive problems. This is also because bonds of maltodextrin are very weak. After consuming they are rapidly digested, thus forming a simple glucose. Its advantage is that it gives the exhausted body the necessary energy boost for maximum performance. It's an ideal source of energy not only for physical activity, but also during supercompensation period or dieting, leading up to optimum replenishing of muscle glycogen before, during, and after any sporting performance. It is soluble in water.
Why use maltodextrin?
We recommend using maltodextrin to increase energy intake. Since it is a complex of polysaccharides of different chain lengths, it continuously delivers glucose into the bloodstream, making it suitable to supplement glycogen. Maltodextrin is gradually cleaved in the intestine of the individual glucose molecules, then absorbed and ensuring stable elevation of blood sugar. Active athlete's body needs nutrients to improve performance and proper development, therefore it is necessary to supply them.
