What is it?
International Protein’s Extreme Carbs is an energy and glycogen recovery formula.
What does it do?
Extreme Carbs 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 potentiate to help promote glycogen synthesis and maximize 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.
When do I take it?
Mix 1g/1kg of your body weight to 200-400 mls of water and consume immediately after training for recovery. At other times of the day add to your protein shakes or other food as a meal replacement or pre-workout meal. It can be added to anything as it has no distinct flavour.
