International Protein Extreme Carbs is a carbohydrate supplement designed to rapidly replenish glycogen stores after training.
When we train, no matter the type of physical activity, our body primarily wants to use glycogen as an energy source. Glycogen is the broken down form of carbohydrates in the body. During training, this energy source can become depleted, forcing the body to want to primarily store carbohydrates, rather than utilise them.
Glycogen synthesis is most rapid during the first 2 hours post-exercise, making this the optimal time to replenish glycogen. International Protein uses a variety of high GI carbohydrates to restore muscle glycogen stores rapidly.
The carbohydrate sources used include Glucose Polymers, Rice Starch, Fructose & Glucose. International Protein has also opted to naturally flavour Extreme Carbs with a neutral taste so it is perfect to mix with your other favourite International Protein products.
If you are a bodybuilder, athlete or just a weekend warrior looking to get the most out of their training and performance, be sure to not overlook the major benefits of correct carbohydrate supplementation.
