Extreme Carbs by International Protein
EXTREME CARBS Energy & Glycogen Recovery Formula has been specifically developed to enhance post-workout glycogen synthesis, improve anabolic recovery and provide a convenient source of energy-rich carbohydrates.
Glycogen reserves become depleted during physical activities, like weight training or sport, stimulating the body to store glycogen. Glycogen synthesis occurs for 4-6 hours after exercise, with the most rapid rate occurring in the first 2 hours. At this time insulin sensitivity is at its peak so there is an enhanced ability to absorb sugars needed to replenish vital energy reserves. To maximize your recovery, EXTREME CARBS provides rapid, moderate and slowly absorbed carbohydrates and a powerful insulin potentiator to help promote glycogen synthesis and maximise insulin sensitivity.
EXTREME CARBS provides high Glycemic Index (G.I) glucose to initiate muscle glycogen replacement and take advantage of the body’s natural recovery systems. The glycogen recovery formulation is supported with fructose, which preferentially restores liver glycogen. The combination of glucose and fructose has the ability to further increase insulin levels, enhancing the body’s anabolic state.
Medium Length Glucose Polymers continue to supply a steady stream of glucose to depleted muscles while easily digested, low-allergy rice starch breaks down more slowly, providing glycogen replenishing carbohydrates for the entire peak glycogen synthesis phase.
Men & women over the age of 15 who undertake high intensity physical training programs, either anaerobic or aerobic, three or more days per week. Training activities include, but are not limited to weight training (bodybuilding, power-lifting), boxing, martial arts, football, rugby, track and field, swimming, cycling and motor sports.
EXTREME CARBS is designed to provide energy rich carbohydrates and assist muscle glycogen replenishment, muscular endurance and reduced muscle breakdown in highly active individuals, especially elite athletes. Exact results will depend on the type of training program used.
