Table of contents
Maltodextrin by HSN Raw is a polysaccharide, a type of complex carbohydrate, which generates a sustained supply of energy, making it ideal for long-duration training or workouts with a rapid depletion of glycogen, because of the intensity of the exercise. It is obtained from hydrolysis of starch.
Despite being classified as a complex carbohydrate, which means that its molecular structure is constituted by more than one unit of glucose (glucose polymer) that forms long chains, the level of intestinal absorption is very high, even more than glucose. The glycemic index of maltodextrin is around 85-105. The chains that bind the monosaccharides are weak, so they will be easily metabolized, and thus, lead to a rise of insulin.
In order to use maltodextrin, it must pass first through the liver, where said molecular chains will be broken. In that case, the use ratio for its replenishment will be slower than that of dextrose (monosaccharides or glucose units).
Both carbohydrate sources can be combined with a 50:50 ratio in order to complement each other. Dextrose, being a single molecule, will have a high osmolarity, causing a slow gastric emptying. However, combining dextrose with a glucose polymer, such as maltodextrin, will improve digestion without producing delay. In this way, the combination of dextrose and maltodextrin will optimize glycogen replenishment, hydration and performance.
Despite providing a high glycemic index due to its branched molecular structure, it is possible to achieve a stable energy level over time.
Precisely because of its properties related to the prolonged energy that it provides, Maltodextrin is a totally feasible option to use either as a pre, during and/or after training energy shot in order to have energy to replenish muscle glycogen.
During intense exercise, active muscle tissues will require energy from these deposits. Depending on the type, intensity and duration of the activity, the capacity of these glycogen stores to maintain the supply will cause their partial emptying.
Maltodextrin is designed with the following objectives:
- Great energy source
- Performance enhancer thanks to its availability - no upset stomach or other derivatives, reduced fatigue
- Accelerate recovery through the rapid absorption in the intestine
The Maltodextrin can be combined with other products that are designed to provide a strategic intake in one of the most important moments, like finishing an intense physical activity:
- Sportspeople that carry out endurance workouts of a long duration, especially endurance sports.
- All kind of sportspeople and athletes looking for a source of carbohydrates to get the energy they need before, during and after training. As well as to provide a pre-competition carbohydrate recharge.
- Fitness athletes in bulking phase that can mix it with their usual protein to achieve a greater muscle growth.
