Extreme Carbs is an energy & glycogen recovery formula that has been specifically developed to enhance post-workout glycogen synthesis, improve anabolic recovery and provide a convenient source of energy rich carbohydrates.
Glycogen reserves become depleted during physical activities, like weight training or sport, stimulating the body to store glycogen. Glycogen synthesis occurs for 4-6 hours after exercise, with the most rapid rate occurring in the first 2 hours. At this time insulin sensitivity is at its peak so there is an enhanced ability to absorb sugars needed to replenish vital energy reserves. To maximize your recovery, Extreme Carbs provides rapid, moderate and slowly absorbed carbohydrates and a powerful insulin potentiator to help promote glycogen synthesis and maximise insulin sensitivity.
Extreme Carbs provides high Glycemic Index (G.I) glucose to initiate muscle glycogen replacement and take advantage of the body’s natural recovery systems. The glycogen recovery formulation is supported with fructose, which preferentially restores liver glycogen. The combination of glucose and fructose has the ability to further increase insulin levels, enhancing the body’s anabolic state.
Extreme Carbs has a neutral, mildly sweet taste so it can be added to other foods, especially protein shakes, without affecting their taste or making them unbearably sweet. Varying the amount of liquid you add will give you a thinner or thicker consistency depending on whether you want a light, refreshing post-workout recovery drink or a thicker, more filling meal replacement.
