CarboPro Carbo-Pro Pure Complex Carbs 3lbs: Carbo-Pro contains 100% Complex Carbs (3.0 lbs) and is a nonsweet (neutral flavor) glucose polymer, derived through a patented process that consists of D-glucose units linked primarly by alpha-1-4 bonds, having a Dextrose Equivalency of less than 16 (high molecular weight). It is low on the Glycemic Index (20) in comparison to table sugar. Carbo-Pro is a white powder prepared by hydrolysis of grains (corn/barley/rice). It's highly safe for direct human consumption. 2lb bag.
complex carbs - to maintain peak performance There are nutrients which are building materials and nutrients that are fuel. Proteins, vitamins, minerals, and essential fats are predominantly building materials. They are used long-term to grow a better body. All carbohydrates are essentially fuel. They are used short-term, like gas in the tank. So the types and amounts of carbs to provide the right fuel mix, and the timing of their intake to provide an optimum supply, are critical for any particular performance to succeed. Furthermore, carbohydrates reduce the use of muscle protein for fuel, and therefore spare that vital muscle tissue.
CarboPro has a perfect balance of caloric concentration and osmolality. The dextrose equivalency of Carbo-Pro is low therefore it is low in osmolality even up to 15% to 20% solution in water (200 to 220) lower than body fluid osmolality (280 to 300). For example the osmolality of sugar at 15% to 20% solution in water is approximately 800. Therefore sugar at this concentration is too hard on the stomach. Relative to sugars, Carbo-Pro provides higher caloric density without exceeding osmotic balance.
In designing your carbohydrate nutrition, the primary goal should be to achieve highest level of muscle glycogen and maintain that level, before during, and after exercise/training.
