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.
