Dual energy source

The energy from every single-serving Biogen Cyto-Pro sachet comes from a blend of Agenanova and Palatinose™.

Palatinose™ (Isomaltulose) is a naturally sourced carbohydrate that positively impacts energy levels due to its low-glycaemic index (GI) and slow release profile.

Yet, the high molecular mass and the low proportion of low molecular weight sugars, gastric emptying is faster than with other low-GI carbohydrate drinks, which means it is digested and absorbed more rapidly, with lower risks of intestinal distress.

Agenanova is another patented ingredient that Biogen has included in the formulation due to its many beneficial characteristics – Agenanova is low GI, dissolves completely in water and has a significantly reduced starchy taste.

This carbohydrate source is derived from maltodextrin, but provides a more stable energy supply due to its lower GI. It also offers better digestibility due to faster absorption and a lower risk for gastrointestinal discomfort or issues.

When combined, Agenanova and Palatinose deliver the ideal blend of rapid and sustained release carbohydrates for a sports nutrition products used during ultra endurance events, ideal for athletes looking to sustain their performance beyond three hours.

Added benefits

You’ll also find protein and all nine essential amino acids in each serving to limit muscle loss during endurance events and support a quicker recovery between training sessions, races or even stages, particularly for events or training sessions that exceed three hours in duration.

Research confirms that a carbohydrate-protein blend offers performance benefits over water and even carb-only drinks when endurance athletes go ultra long.

In a landmark study¹ on the subject conducted at the University of Texas at Austin, cyclists who drank a carbohydrate and protein blend improved their endurance by 57% compared with water and 24% compared with a carbohydrate-only drink.

In a follow-up study², the researchers found that a carbohydrate-protein supplement “is more effective for the rapid replenishment of muscle glycogen after exercise than a CHO (carbohydrate) supplement of equal CHO or caloric content.”

Additional performance benefits come from added creatine monohydrate, which can improve performance during short bursts of intense exertion, like a short climb, a breakaway effort, or surge for the finish.

Caffeine is another ingredient proven to support endurance performance and also works synergistically with creatine for even greater benefits3. The combo helps improve energy production and enhances muscle function.

Additional ingredients in the formulation include ß-Alanine, L-Carnitine Tartrate and L-Glutamine, which have proven abilities to help support optimal performance by enhancing endurance through more efficient energy production and decreasing muscle breakdown during efforts that exceed three hours.

An all-encompassing supplement plan

New Biogen Cyto-Pro adds another effective product to your endurance performance toolkit alongside other products like the carbohydrate-only Biogen Cytogen, which is ideal for shorter duration, higher-intensity training and racing.

Include this Hybrid Endurance Solution in your Biogen Perform X supplement strategy to craft an intelligent, all-encompassing sports nutrition plan that gives your body what it needs and delivers proven benefits for athletes who want to perform at their best.
