What is Dextrose?
Dextrose powder by RawSeries is 100% Dextrose monohydrate with a formula that improves its dissolution. It is a perfect source of carbohydrates for athletes who want a quick energy recovery.
Dextrose is glucose with a linear hydrocarbon chain instead of a cyclic one. It also provides a lot of energy, perfect for athletes that do high intensity and long workouts.
Due to its molecular features, it is the best source of carbohydrates during the workout. It is also a great product to recharge the glycogen reserves after the workout.
Why take Dextrose Powder?
Dextrose is a dextrororatory glucose, a carbohydrate which has a series of properties that are ideal for athletes. It is an immediate energy source which does not need to be digested or any other type of breakdown in the bowel, that is why it can be immediately absorbed.
Even while we do physical exercise, a period when we use to experience gastrointestinal discomfort due to a lower digestive capacity.
Dextrose is a free monosaccharide. When we take a polysaccharide like starch (carbohydrates from rice, potato or pasta), it breaks down when we start chewing to the moment they reach the bowel, releasing monosaccharides (like dextrose).
What happens when we take dextrose?
Thanks to its simplicity, it does not have to be digested, it reaches the bowel quickly and intact. The transporters that we have in the bowel cell membranes help us absorb it (Boron and Boulpaep, 2017). Just like that.
The fast absorption of glucose and physical exercise
This is a great advantage when we do long workouts. In fact, according to the American College of Sports Medicine, athletes need to start taking small amounts of carbohydrates after 45 minutes of physical exercise (Thomas et al., 2016).
On the other hand, Jeukendrup, the biggest expert in the research of carbohydrate intake during the workout, is a little bit more conservative since he suggests taking carbohydrates after 30 minutes of physical exercise. (2014)
During the workout, our splanchnic circulation drops because this blood goes to the muscle that is being used. That is why we cannot eat while we do physical exercise, because our ability to digest complex nutrients is significantly affected (Dahl et al., 2003).
That will not happen with dextrose
Carbohydrates are the main substrate used to produce energy in the organism when we do intense physical exercise. That is why it is so important to take a good amount of carbohydrates, specially after the workout, when our carbohydrate concentrations are decreasing in our organism.
Here, dextrose plays an important tole, since thanks to its fast absorption, it can quickly recharge the deposits that have been emptied.
Possibly, dextrose is one of the best sources of carbohydrates during and after the workout, with a maximum 50g dose. Dextrose is a great carbohydrate because:
- It is half as sweet as tabletop sugar.
- It is very easy to do shakes.
- It is practical when it comes to making carbohydrate-rich drinks.
- It is useful for making simple drinks with a good flavor that are not heavy or excessively sweet.
Moreover, our dextrose is a monohydrate, that is, we have add it a water molecule, a special detail from HSN that increases its solubility and stability without adding emulsifiers or other additives that could potentially alter the purity of the product.
Say goodbye to dextrose products that do not have a homogeneous dissolution or which have an unpleasant flavor. Thanks to its improved solubility, this will not happen to you if you use Dextrose by RawSeries!
How to take Dextrose
A serving of Dextrose is made by dissolving 50g in 500-625ml to maintain a concentration of 8-10%. That way, we will maintain the toning balance of the drink while preventing any gastrointestinal discomfort.
Take as many servings as you need to meet your requirements. We do not suggest taking more than 50g of dextrose per hour during the workout.
How can we combine Dextrose?
Combine dextrose with Fructose by RawSeries in a 2:1 ratio in order to enhance the glucose absorption during the workout in a 51%!!
Together with Electrolytes powder, it makes a fast absorption intra-workout drink that will not cause gastrointestinal discomfort while making sure that the athlete is properly hydrated.
