Amino Z Sweet Potato Powder
Carbohydrate supplements have become some of the most commonly used in the fitness industry. Offering a way to boost performance, enhance recovery, and even facilitate the development of strength and muscle growth, their popularity is well-founded.
However, many carbohydrate supplements on the market are derived from simple sugars that are quite high on the glycemic index. Within this, they also contain very few micronutrients (i.e. vitamins and minerals) on a per serving basis.
While this is not inherently bad, it does suggest that they may not be the best option for everyone -- especially those who strive to maximise the nutrient density of the food they eat.
Which is exactly where the Amino Z sweet potato powder enters the equation.
What is Sweet Potato Powder?
As many of you would know, sweet potatoes are a type of underground tuber that are often applauded for their health boosting properties.
Filled to the brim with potent antioxidants, fiber, and a number of vitamins and minerals, these orange spuds are eaten by communities across the globe in a variety of different ways.
Importantly, because of their organic nature, they are also very low on the glycemic index -- which means that they are absorbed relatively slowly into the body, and therefore DO NOT cause a rapid spike in blood sugar like many other carbohydrate sources.
So, what has this all got to do with sweet potato powder?
Well, pretty much everything.
Our sweet potato powder is very simply sweet potatoes that come in powdered form (pretty obvious, right?).
Made from organic sweet potatoes, this unique type of carbohydrate supplement acts as a significant point of difference to many others on the market because it is full to the brim with health boosting compounds, and is slowly absorbed.
This means that it offers all of the traditional benefits of a carb powder without causing a sugar crash. Oh, and because of the nutrient content, it also provides additional health boosting effects.
Benefits of Sweet Potato Powder
When it comes to maximizing the results of your training, sweet potato powder can have a significant impact -- and here's why.
1. Improves Performance
Believe it or not, sweet potato powder can actually increase your exercise performance in a rather big way.
It is fairly well established that carbohydrates are the main source of fuel used to create muscle contractions during high intensity exercise -- especially when it comes to things like weight training.
There is also some research to suggest that even small reductions in your body's carbohydrate stores can actually impact performance in a negative manner .
With this in mind, consuming a decent serving of sweet potato powder a couple of hours before you train is going to be a great way to ensure you have enough energy to fuel your session. Moreover, the fact that it is lower on the glycemic index means that you are going to get a steady stream of carbohydrates into your body throughout your training session.
This suggests that it might be a more suitable option than some higher glycaemic index carb powders.
2. Increased Muscle Growth
Despite sweet potato powder being lower on the glycemic index, it still provides enough carbohydrates into your system to cause an increase in the hormone insulin.
Insulin is often described as the “energy storage” hormone because it helps transport carbs and proteins from your blood into your muscles. This in turn increases the availability of these nutrients, boosting muscle growth.
In fact, consuming some sort of carbohydrate powder by itself after you train has been shown to increase muscle protein synthesis (i.e. the development of new muscle tissue) in a big way .
Importantly, this is going to be magnified when sweet potato powder is combined with a fast absorbing protein powder like whey .
3. Faster Recovery
Last, but certainly not least, we have faster recovery after training.
Now, this builds upon our previous benefit in a rather logical manner. Both protein and carbohydrates are essential when it comes to repairing damaged muscle tissue after heavy weight training.
While this expedited repair can increase muscle growth in the short term, it also has a marked impact on your long term progress by maximising recovery.
In short, by speeding up recovery between training sessions, you can train at a greater intensity for all subsequent gym sessions. This can lead to increases in training intensity and volume that compound over the duration of weeks and months.
Over time, this means much greater improvements in strength and size -- and all from a little powdered sweet potato.
If you are after a low GI carbohydrate powder that is full to the brim with health boosting vitamins and minerals, AND also has the ability to increase performance, recovery, and gains in muscle size, then look no further -- because our Sweet Potato Powder has you covered.
