Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide, which is a type of carbohydrate. It is commonly used as a thickener or filler to increase the volume of processed food. Moreover, in the field of sports its use is ideal at certain moments when we run out of glycogen. At those times, we need to recharge it as fast as possible, like after the workout or when we perform long exercises.

In addition, maltodextrin has a higher molecular weight than other carbohydrates or other ingredients with a high glycemic index. Therefore, its osmolarity is lower. This results in a fast transit through the stomach, so that the glucose will reach the bloodstream as soon as possible in order to be used as energy.

Why do we need to buy Maltodextrin?

After the workout, bodybuilders or athletes can take products with a high glycemic index (such as maltodextrin or dextrose). This will help to increase the blood sugar and insulin levels to carry carbohydrates to the muscle cells. That is why athletes tend to buy carbohydrate products, since it helps to recharge the energy.

Currently, maltodextrin is one of the most popular products among athletes. It is available in powder, but also in energy bars, energy gels, shakes and other supplements since, as we will see, you can combine it with other products or supplements to enhance the sport performance in different conditions.

By being a carbohydrate, maltodextrin performs a clear task: providing energy to our body. However, this carbohydrate has certain properties and features that stand out among other products with similar properties.

Let's not forget that maltodextrin is made up of glucose chains. The fact that it is a simple carbohydrate means that we can digest it very quickly, even faster than other ingredients.

The main benefit of taking maltodextrin regularly is that we will see how our performance or resistance will increase during moderate or intense workouts.

Moreover, it will help us recharge the carbohydrates that our body uses during an intense physical effort faster. Consequently, it will prevent us from using amino acids instead.

In addition, it will recharge the glycogen deposits from our body, so that they will be ready before a competition or physical exercise that demands a high performance.

However, we should not relate maltodextrin to strength sports exclusively. When it comes to endurance spprts, using a carbohydrate like maltodextrin will make a difference. For instance, it will be fundamental to take some kind of gel or energy bar for running or cycling long distances in order to avoid losing energy. Therefore, maltodextrin can become a great ally.

How can we combine Maltodextrin?

One of the properties of maltodextrin is that it can be combined with other products meant to improve the sport performance. For example:

  • Carbohydrates: dextrose, fructose and palatinose
  • Protein: whey protein shakes
  • Pre and post-workout supplements: amino acids and electrolytes, such as creatine, glutamine or BCAA's

 The purpose of combining different supplement is to have as much energy available for the workouts or competitions.

Where can we buy Maltodextrin?

You can buy different supplements made from maltodextrin in the HSN online store, apart from finding information about it or about other ingredients. There are different formats, although we suggest purchasing the powder format, so that you will be able to combine it with any format. The maltodextrin by HSNraw recharges the glycogen deposits, either before, during or after intense workouts or competitions. The maltodextrin supply for one serving of this product equals 50g.

The purpose of taking maltodextrin is to get an energy supply that will enhance the sport performance, decrease the muscle fatigue and shorten the recovery in order to make the most of our physical activities.

Evocarbs, also in powder, is a product by HSNsports that has been enriched with carbohydrates such as maltodextrin or electrolytes that will enhance the sport performance to the fullest. It provides a high glucose supply, resulting in energy that decreases the muscle breakdown and setting the regeneration of fibers and tissues into motion. A serving of Evocarbs provides up to 37g of carbohydrates to the body, including maltodextrin. You can buy these products at the best price (€), ready for immediate dispatch.
