Dextrose by HSNraw is a type of high glycemic index carbohydrate that produces an immediate energy supply. It is perfect to take in the most demanding moments like the post-workout period.
Dextrose has a high glycemic index, which triggers a high insulin release (insulin peak) which will be strategically used in the moments we mentioned previously. Insulin is a powerful anabolic hormone, which helps to transport the nutrients from the bloodstream into the cell.
Thanks to this feature, dextrose is usually combined with other elements such as creatine, BCAA's and even protein, resulting in truly remarkable results when the goal is building muscle mass.
However, dextrose can also be useful for those who keep a high sport performance and need an energy boost in order to recharge their deposits quickly.
Dextrose is a form of glucose derived from starches, and it is often used as an energy source to recharge the glycogen deposits and keep the insulin levels high in certain moments, such as the peri-workout:
- Just before training
- During training
- Right after training
We can prepare a drink and start drinking it just before the workout session, and carry on with it during training. With this combination, we provide BCAA's that will contribute to this regeneration, apart from stimulating the protein synthesis; Along with a constant energy supply of a rapid absorption through Dextrose.
Combining a powder protein or Whey Protein with Dextrose is a great option to recharge our body with essential nutrients to begin the recovery process. It is recommended that we prepare a shake by adding a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio (in favor of carbohydrates):
- 25g of Whey Protein
- 25-50g of Dextrose
One of the most common uses of dextrose is to combine it with creatine to enhance its absorption. Due to the insulin peak, this hormone will take the nutrients that travel through the blood to muscle cell. In this situation, if we include creatine at the same time, we will enhance this effect.
We can combine the 3 supplements in the same post-workout shake: Whey Protein + Creatine + Dextrose
- Athletes who want to keep normal blood sugar levels during a prolonged exercise, while delaying the fatigue and maintaining performance.
- Ideal to take after training with a protein shake, since dextrose stimulates the insulin release, recharges the spent glycogen and enhances the protein synthesis.
