Carbohydrates (Carbs) are one of the three (3) macronutrients. They are the preferred energy substrate of your skeletal muscles. Except for fibre they provide 4 calories per gram.

Generally, most people consume adequate levels of carbs in their diet. However, athletes, people with a high metabolism (Ectomorph), individuals trying to gain muscle/weight or physically active people may need to supplement with carbs around training or in addition to meals. Carbs are given a score of 0-100 called GI (Glycaemic Index). The higher the number the faster the carb absorbs into the blood stream. Glucose has a GI of 100. This makes it the fastest absorbing carb.

For the most part you want the carbohydrates you eat from food during the day to be low GI. However, around training you may need to supplement with high GI carbs.

The best high GI carbs to supplement around training are glucose and maltodextrin because they are quickly absorbed, well tolerated and create a greater increase in insulin.

This boost in insulin helps create an anabolic muscle building state while increasing glycogen (muscle energy) recovery. Insulin also helps increase the absorption of other nutrients and amino acids including Beta Alanine, Creatine, Citrulline, Glutamine etc.

Glucose and Maltodextrin are incredibly easily digested and absorbed so create very little if any digestive issues. That said, if you are supplementing with simple carbs during training you should keep your solution to no greater than 7%. That means 7g of carbs per 100ml of water.

Carbs may help with:

  • Increase energy
  • Assist muscle building
  • Increase nutrient absorption
  • Improve recovery

How to use:

20-75g
During or immediately after exercise to support exercise performance and recovery.

20-50g
Around meals to add additional calories for weight gain. Be sure to increase water consumption.
