Imported from UK.
Highly branched cyclic dextrin (cluster dextrin) is a cutting
edge carbohydrate for performance. With great solubility and
superfast gastric emptying, cluster dextrin is a great choice for
before, during and after exercise. Providing a steady increase in
blood sugar levels, cluster dextrin can help to keep you active
for longer. Highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD) is a
carbohydrate source that is relatively new to sports nutrition.
It is produced through the breakdown of starch and a unique
enzyme is used to form clusters of sugar molecules. Further
branching enzymes are then used to form the cyclic dextrin into
longer chains. Hbcd has a relatively high molecular weight and
low osmolarity which speeds up gastric emptying. This means that
the solution of HBCD will spend less time in your stomach
compared to traditional carbohydrates and will therefore reduce
discomfort when ingested during exercise (sloshing around in the
stomach). Furthermore, the increased rate of gastric emptying
will mean it reaches the small intestine faster, enabling
absorption into the bloodstream to begin. Another bonus of HBCD
is that it provides a sustained release of energy, unlike
traditional carbohydrate sources such as dextrose which cause a
sudden spike in blood sugar and a large insulin response. Hbcd is
absorbed more gradually and ensures that there is a continued
uptake into the bloodstream, this can help to keep you training
harder for longer. Available in a pack of 1 kg.
