International Protein 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.
International Protein 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.
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, International Protein Extreme Carbs provides rapid, moderate and slowly absorbed carbohydrates and a powerful insulin potentiator to help promote glycogen synthesis and maximise insulin sensitivity.
Take 80g* mixed with 200 – 400ml water immediately after training. Recommended Serving size is 1.0 – 1.5g/kg bodyweight. For optimum recovery, combine with International Protein TRI-WHEY at a rate of 0.6 – 0.7g TRI-WHEY per kg bodyweight.
*Based on 1g/kg for an 80kg individual. Use more or less EXTREME CARBS based on your bodyweight.
At other times of day, combine EXTREME CARBS with International Protein PROTEIN SYNERGY 5 for a flexible meal replacement or pre-workout meal. Recommended Serving size is 0.5 – 0.75g/kg bodyweight. For the best consistency, use 50 – 100ml of water per 20g of EXTREME CARBS.
