Dextrose by Now Food is a natural product based on dextrose. Dextrose or glucose as it is also known as, is a monosaccharide or simple sugar which is approximately 25% less sweet than pure cane or refined sugar, and does not contain fructose or lactose. It is extracted from corn, and is therefore natural, effective and easily used by the body.
Its fine texture and moderate sweetness make it versatile for use in a wide range of applications. However, it provides an especially important effect for athletes. As a simple sugar it is well tolerated by most individuals with healthy blood sugar levels, and can be consumed before, during and after the most intense workouts. From a sporting performance perspective, dextrose can help to ensure muscles that are intensively worked are not deprived of proteins and nutrients needed to recover.
Dextrose has a high glycaemic index (GI) which means it very quickly enters the blood stream. This action stimulates a powerful and almost instant insulin response. Insulin is a natural hormone with strong anabolic properties that helps to provide nutrients to the cells of the muscle fibres that are hungry, Dextrose by Now Foods is 100% pure and manufactured under strict quality standards.
