Carbohydrates provide the main source of energy during exercise and are stored in the muscles and liver as glycogen. During exercise the body derives most of its energy required from these glycogen stores. In addition it is also a preferred source of energy for those individuals interested in increasing their body weight. Carbohydrate consumption stimulates greater insulin production, which promotes the entry of nutrients into cells and contributes to building and repairing muscle tissue.
PURE CARBS (Maltodextrin) is a polysaccharide (a form of carbohydrate) that is rapidly converted into glucose in the blood stream, providing a quick source of energy. Maltodextrin is derived from a variety of starch products of which maize is the most common.
