Why Do I Need a Carb Drink?

Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION+ is vastly superior.

reason-1

Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take.

reason-2

Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance – shifting to fat metabolism and protein breakdown via gluconeogenesis is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.

reason-3

Supplementing with carbs is one of the best ways to prevent cortisol levels from rising and subsequently, catabolic muscle tissue breakdown from taking place.

reason-4

Recovery from intense training and replenishment of glycogen stores.

What CARBION+ has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy.

Starting at the high end, AWM2300™ Waxy Maize is highly-branched and extremely complex and comes in at 200,000 g/mol, next in order of complexity is the Rice and Potato starch, while lower in inclusion rates, they are also very high on the molecular weight scale, and range between 80,000 and 120,000 g/mol, CCD™: Clustered Cyclic Dextrin is derived from Waxy Maize (Amylopectin) and has a molecular weight of 60,000 g/mol and finally, DE-5™: Dextrin is the least complex coming in at 45,000 g/mol; all far larger and more complex than the monosaccharides Glucose, Dextrose or Fructose which is 180 g/mol.

So, what does all this mean?

The goal of any supplement is to have an effect. In order to have an effect the nutrient (protein, creatine, aminos, carbs etc.) must find its way into the cell; getting into the cell means getting past the gatekeeper, the insulin receptor. The obvious way is to allow insulin to do its job. But higher levels of insulin come at a price. It requires higher levels of blood sugar. The Advanced Carb Utilization Complex within CARBION+ has ingredients that effectively reduce the level at which these nutrient gatekeepers “turn on” and actively take nutrients in.

CARBION+ provides a range of carbohydrate complexity from extremely large, highly branched and complex carb to a simpler complex carb such as DE-5™, an engineered carb with 87% of the polysaccharide lengths of (10) decasaccharide and larger. It also provides 3.2 g of Fibersol-2™, another highly engineered carb that mimics the fiber effect of oats and provides beneficial actions like improved regularity, reduced blood sugar and shuttles triglycerides out of the body.

With its very low osmotic pressure gradient (matches human osmotic pressure between 280 and 300) and high levels of electrolytes, CARBION+ empties rapidly from the stomach, thereby facilitating efficient, sustained uptake and preventing bloating, cramping and indigestion that can occur with simpler carb drinks containing glucose or other sugars, especially when training hard.

More to the point, like consuming oats, CARBION+ has the effect of delivering caloric energy in a manner your body can cope with more easily, eliminating dramatic insulin spikes and sustaining energy delivery. This sustained energy provides a steady supply to working muscles, spares muscle glycogen depletion, staves off muscle catabolism and fuels recovery.

The addition of the electrolytes takes advantage of the delivery channels that share a common membrane with carbohydrate absorption. The Advanced Carb Utilization Complex further facilitates the uptake of the blood sugar by reducing the threshold of the activation of insulin receptors; simply stated, your body will be more efficient at uptake into cells of nutrients while requiring less insulin.
