Arms Race Dextrose
Dextrose (AKA Glucose) from Arms Race is a simple sugar, functions efficient and high capacity mainly because of its molecular structure. Otherwise known as pure glucose, it is your body’s preferred form of usable energy and the necessary component for the synthesis and re-synthesis of glycogen.Due to its efficient breakdown, dextrose can be absorbed directly through the gut into the bloodstream and resulting in an insulin response faster than any other carb. Additionally, since dextrose is already in the form the body requires, it can be used immediately for glycogen replenishment.
The rapid, but very beneficial, influx of glucose from oral carbohydrate(dextrose)supplementation quickly suppresses cortisol and thenegative effect it has on the expression of metabolically critical proteins and growth factors–ensuring that myocytes (muscle cells)function in an ideal environment. In addition, these carbohydrates induce a beneficial insulin response, the effects of which include stimulating glycogen storage, the transport of glucose into muscle cell mitochondria, and an increase in amino acid utilization.
Dextrose can be a great standalone ingredient or added to a wide variety of intra workout blends to provide a potent and effective carbohydrate replenishment and performance blend.
