GRANITE SUPPLEMENTS INTRA-CARB
Intra-Carb: A Convenient, Versatile, High-Performance Carbohydrate Supplement
Intra-Carb as a tasty, convenient and versatile blend of three carbohydrate sources, designed to be easy on your gut, and produce a rapid, but sustained elevation of blood glucose. Intra-Carb is a great compliment to our Recovery (intra-workout) product when you want to up the ante on your peri-workout carbohydrate intake. On the other hand, if convenience or simply the ease of drinking your carbs (when really trying to pack in the calories) suits you, Intra-Carb can be used any time of the day to engineer both rapid and sustained entry of glucose into your blood.
The secret to Intra-Carb’s powerful, but long-lasting, easy-on-the-gut punch comes from the synergy of the three carbohydrate sources we’ve combined:
Intra-Carb contains highly branched cyclic dextrin (as 10 grams of Cyclic Dextrin®) to enhance gastric emptying and minimize gastrointestinal discomfort during exercise [including burping and gas, which your training partner benefit will appreciate]. By more rapidly ushering glucose from the stomach to the small intestine and blood stream, Cyclic Dextrin® can improve performance, and maintain higher glycogen levels during exercise, giving you a head start on recovering for your next workout.
To ensure a sustained, crash-free elevation of blood glucose during your workout or whenever you’ve consumed Intra-Carb, we’ve also included 5 grams of Isomaltulose (as Palatinose®) in Intra-Carb. Palatinose is a disaccharide that produces a steady rise blood glucose, but at a baseline level much lower than even table sugar.
Lastly, we’ve included a small amount of Dextrose (glucose), the carbohydrate source commonly used as the standard for determining glycemic index (GI). [The GI of dextrose is higher than essentially all kinds of rice products, for instance.] Dextrose’s rapid entry into the blood stream will promote insulin release, so including a small amount in Intra-Carb favors the positive balance of skeletal muscle protein synthesis and breakdown we all seek, as long as you’ve been diligent enough to consume protein with your carbs.
There you have it – a simple, but powerful formula! Intra-Carb combines the rapid actions of Dextrose with the smooth and sustained entry of glucose from of Cyclic Dextrin® and Palatinose®, respectively, to give you the benefits and versatility of both slow and fast carbohydrates, all in one product.
