Get your dexterity back
We all know that feeling of exhaustion after a long, strenuous workout. And since we already have some experience exercising, and already know a thing or two about sports nutrition, we understand there are no magical products or other shortcuts that can make this feeling go away just like that. What we do have, though, are several great options to help your body get the nutrients it needs to recover* the way it knows best. One of these options is an innovative carbohydrate source named Cluster Dextrin™.
Slow but never late
As a source of carbohydrates, Cluster Dextrin™ offers a few major advantages. It's absorbed shortly after intake, passing through the stomach relatively quickly and thereby limiting any possible stomach discomfort,** and releases its energy at a slower, more prolonged rate than other types of carbohydrates.*** This is an extremely noteworthy property, particularly for endurance athletes.
First and foremost, Cluster Dextrin™ provides a quick and easy way to take in quality carbohydrates for carb loading or post-workout recovery*, either just with water or along with other ingredients in sports drinks or protein shakes. Its energetic value makes it a good option for bulking or muscle-building diets. As unique as it may be, however, always keep in mind that it is not intended nor able to substitute a varied, balanced diet.
Cluster Dextrin™ is a great choice for any active person, athlete or bodybuilder looking for a quality carb source to enrich their diet and supplementation regimen, particularly for post-workout recovery.* As it is 100% derived from non-animal ingredients, Cluster Dextrin™ is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
* Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. This beneficial effect is obtained with the total carbohydrate intake from all sources of 4 g per kg body weight in several doses within the first 4 hours, and no later than 6 hours, after highly-intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise.
