Granite Supplements - "Intra-Carb" - High Performance Carbohydrate Blend
Improve performance, minimise intra-workout fatigue and enhance muscle pumps during workouts with Granite Supplements' "Intra-Carb"
Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin is the main driving force behind "Intra-Carb" by Granite Supplements
Granite Supplements' "Intra-Carb" is a high performance carbohydrate blend containing carbohydrates
coming from Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®), also known as HBCD
. What separates HBCD from other sources of carbohydrates is the fact that it has what is called a low osmolarity and a high molecular weight in chemistry. This increases gastric emptying, meaning that it basically spends less time being in your stomach than more traditional carbohydrate sources such as glucose. A faster rate of gastric emptying is beneficial to strength athletes since the HBCD will be absorbed in the intestines and sent to the muscle cells quicker. In effect, it can help you train for longer periods of time and with more intensity than you have ever done before, and rate of recovery might also be sped up, making you able to get back into the gym and train hard sooner.
The "Intra-Carb" blend also contains a carbohydrate source known as Palatinose™
, which is acts as a natural sugar yet it works very slowly, ultimately providing a constant supply of energy over long periods of time. It has a low glycemic index, which is something that expresses how a carbohydrate affects the blood sugar concentration. Palatinose™ takes a very long time for the body to consume and thus does not cause a rapid hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), which is indeed beneficial for strength athletes since the last thing you would ever want during a workout is experiencing low blood sugar levels.
We recommended that you use "Intra-Carb" by adding one serving to approximately 12-16 fl. oz. of water (around 375-500 ml) and drink it during your workouts. Please be aware that this information is purely ment as a guidance and you may experience a need for a larger amount of water in order to avoid gastro-intestinal distress.
