Overview

What is Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®) and how can it help my training?

Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD) is a carbohydrate source that is relatively new to sports nutrition. It is produced through the breakdown of starch and a unique enzyme is used to form clusters of sugar molecules. Further branching enzymes are then used to form the Cyclic Dextrin into longer chains. HBCD has a relatively high molecular weight and low osmolarity which speeds up gastric emptying. This means that the solution of HBCD will spend less time in your stomach compared to traditional carbohydrates and will therefore reduce discomfort when ingested during exercise (sloshing around in the stomach). Furthermore, the increased rate of gastric emptying will mean it reaches the small intestine faster, enabling absorption into the bloodstream to begin. Another bonus of HBCD is that it provides a sustained release of energy, unlike traditional carbohydrate sources such as dextrose which cause a sudden spike in blood sugar and a large insulin response. HBCD is absorbed more gradually and ensures that there is a continued uptake into the bloodstream, this can help to keep you training harder for longer.

Who is Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin suitable for?

HBCD is suitable for anyone looking to improve their endurance performance or to recover after intense exercise. When ingested intra-workout, HBCD has been shown to increase endurance performance and decrease individuals’ perception of exertion. Post-workout, it can be combined with one of our protein supplements to increase the uptake and delivery of amino acids to the working muscles, enhancing recovery.

How should I use Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin?

Try mixing half a large scoop (25g) with 250ml water in your GN™ Blender Bottle. This will form a translucent liquid which will be largely tasteless, we would recommend consuming this immediately.

Where does your Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®) sourced from?

We only stock the patent protected product Cluster Dextrin®, which is produced in Japan by Glico.

What goes well with Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin?

Pre-workout

Try taking half a scoop of Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin with a scoop of Volt™ to fuel for a really intense workout.

Intra-workout

Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin can be taken with Amino Go™ to keep a supply of carbohydrates and amino acids going to the working muscles. Alternatively, you could try combining with our Vitamin and Mineral Blend to replenish electrolytes lost through sweat.

Post-workout

Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin can be taken with Whey Protein Concentrate to help muscles refuel and repair.
