Buy Sequential Mix Carbohydrates Online

At HSN we're specialists in the development of sports nutrition supplements. In our sports line, we have fast and slow carbohydrates designed exclusively for athletes looking for an energy source during physical activity, whether light or endurance.

You're in the right place if you want to buy sequential mix carbohydrates to support your body in its recovery. Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after high-intensity or long-duration physical exercise, which leads to muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen levels stored in the skeletal muscles.

The positive effect is achieved by consuming carbohydrates from all sources at a total intake of 4g per kg of body weight, in doses taken within four hours (or, at most, six hours) after the end of intense or long-duration physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and depletion of stored glycogen in the skeletal muscles.

What are Sequential Mix Carbohydrates?

A sequential mix carbohydrate is a formula made using different types of carbohydrates with different absorption rates to provide a consistent energy source.

what are sequential mix carbohydrates

Types of Sequential Mix Carbohydrates

The body breaks carbohydrates down into monosaccharides, which are the main source of energy for the body and can be used in the moment or stored in the muscles for later use.

Dextrose & fructose

Simple carbohydrates: Dextrose vs Fructose

Our body breaks down complex or slow-absorbing carbohydrates into simple or fast-absorbing carbohydrates and reaches the bloodstream very quickly.

Fast-absorbing carbohydrates raise blood sugar levels very quickly and provide us with immediate energy, and are useful for short-duration physical exercise.

  • Both Dextrose and Fructose are simple carbohydrates that provide instant energy.
.

Complex carbohydrates: Amylopectin, Cyclodextrin and Maltodextrin

Complex carbs are slowly digested by the body, gradually providing energy. 

As such, it's important, and preferable, to consume slow-absorbing carbohydrates in our day-to-day lives and to limit those that are fast-absorbing.

  • Amylopectin: a complex carbohydrate that provides stable energy.
  • Cyclodextrin: this is a rapidly absorbed carb.
  • Palatinose: releases energy gradually and progressively.
  • Maltodextrin: a carbohydrate made from starch, with a linear molecular structure.
Complex carbohydrates

Recommendations for correct intake of Sequential Carbohydrates

The role of sequential carbohydrates is clear: to provide nutrients with different absorption rates that allow us to maintain exercise rhythms without noticeable energy losses.

How do you take sequential mix carbohydrates?

They're most useful when training:

During: if you don't have problems with digestion, we recommend taking them during the activity so that you have energy both in the moment and after.

After: when the training sessions finish, glycogen reserves will be partially depleted, depending on the intensity and duration of the training, meaning providing sequential release carbohydrates will contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function.

Buy Slow and Fast Absorption Sequential Mix Carbohydrates

Sequential mix carbohydrates are sports supplements that have several types of carbohydrates in their composition.

Each carbohydrate has a glycemic index, which indicates the rate of assimilation.

There are 3 types of carbohydrates, each with its own characteristics:

  • Low glycemic index: providing the body with a slow and progressive release of energy over time. They require more time to be assimilated.
  • Medium glycemic index: the energy release is faster, but without being immediate.
  • High glycemic index: characterised by providing a rapid and immediate energy release in the body. They don't require as much time to be digested, providing a more rapid source of energy.

why buy sequential mix carbohydrates
best sequential carbohydrate

What's the best sequential carbohydrate according to our experts?

Carbohydrate supplements are the best energy source for athletes as they help improve performance during workouts.

The beneficial effect is only obtained by trained adults who perform high-intensity physical exercise (at least 65 % of VO2max) and of long duration (at least 60 min).

You'll find a large number of these products on the market, although it's worth mentioning our powder-format product Evocarbs 2.0, rich in carbohydrates and electrolytes, as well as being a source of magnesium. It's available in 500g, 1kg and 3kg formats.

You can use it together with the Glycopump® (glycerol powder) product from the 100% pure RawSeries brand. As well as with whey proteins, which help increase and maintain muscle mass after training.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know you might have a few questions to ask before you commit to your sequential mix carb purchase. Our team of nutrition experts will advise and guide you to ensure 100% success:

Complex carbs, or slow-absorption carbohydrates, are so-called precisely because our body takes more time to transform them into quick-absorption or simple carbohydrates. Among the principal complex carbohydrates are starches.

Taking carbohydrates after training is intended to replenish energy lost during the session and contribute to recovery. If you skip this phase, you will have to provide them in successive meals.

They're best taken before and during exercise, which recharges energy levels in a staggered way.

Opting for a "low carb" or ketogenic diet results in ketones or ketone bodies becoming the main energy substrate for the body. This isn't the best for athletes, but combining the diet with frequent "reloading" can work if the exercise intensity is high.

When at least 30% of the glucose or sucrose content of a simple carbohydrate product is replaced by fructose:

When at least 30% of the glucose or sucrose content of a simple carbohydrate product is replaced by fructose:

For this, you can use Fructose or Palatinose, 50% fructose content.
