What is Dextrose?
Dextrose, or glucose as it is also known, is a simple sugar that is derived from corn starch. It is high in energy making it a convenient and inexpensive way to add calories to your diet.
What are the performance benefits of Dextrose?
Pre and Intra Workout: Dextrose powder provides an instant energy source making it perfect for before and during a workout. Dextrose rates highly on the Glycemic Index (GI), meaning it creates an rapid insulin spike and encourages delivery of other nutrients taken during these periods, such as creatine or amino acids.
Post Workout: Dextrose powder is commonly used post-workout with protein. Recent research has shown that high GI carbohydrates with protein post workout can further increase protein synthesis, muscle growth and repair compared to a protein shake alone.
