CARBOPHOBIA & PERFORMANCE - SEPARATING FACT FROM FICTION
If you're a "carbo-phobe" then you really aren't concerned with performance, recovery, or lean muscle. True Athletes understand the importance of carbohydrates and embrace them. Whether they are carb-loading before a competition, rolling on the mat, banging out a WOD, slamming a drink during a race, or refueling after a tough training session they know that in order to get to where they want to be they need the energy to get there. Glycogen is what helps fuel your workouts and keep muscles volumized. There is no way around that!
Here's the reality of the situation. Not all carbs are created equal. There's a lot of cleverly labeled and modified maltodextrin on the market claiming to be some technical polysaccharide. Or, there's plain old cornstarch relabeled as super-duper muscle engorging waxy maize. Most of these aren't proven to do anything except deliver false hopes as opposed to having multiple clinical studies in real athletes to support what it is they're claiming.
This is why Gaspari Nutrition chose highly branched cluster dextrin for what will become the gold standard of recovery and performance drinks, GLYCOFUSE®. This high molecular weight carbohydrate has a special helical structure which gives it unique properties unlike many of the corn starches or polysaccharides out there. We'll be real with you and say this stuff isn't cheap, but you certainly pay for what you get. For an athlete like you who takes performance seriously, we know you would settle for nothing less than REAL RESULTS, REAL FAST.*
GOLD MEDALLION CERTIFIED ELECTROLYTES TO SUPPORT OPTIMAL NERVE TRANSMISSION AND MUSCLE PERFORMANCE*
When you sweat, your body loses potassium, magnesium, sodium, chloride, and calcium. They must be replaced to avoid cramping and losses in muscle performance because they are critical components in supporting nerve impulses and muscle contraction. Look at it this way, the more you sweat, the higher your potential need for increased hydration and electrolytes.
Your need for extra electrolytes is based on how often, how long, and how hard you train. To give you an edge Gaspari Nutrition partnered up with Albion Labs where science and patented technology have been combined to create crucial electrolytes in a form the body can readily assimilate. Glycofuse® bears this seal and is the first Gold Medallion certified carbohydrate powder on the market!
THE KEY TO FASTER GASTIC CLEARANCE (AKA EMPTYING YOUR STOMACH)
When you are working out, what is the worst thing that can happen after you take a few sips of water or any other intra-workout drink? Cramps. Nothing can kill a workout faster than some rib thumping cramps. Because of this, intelligently formulated "sports drinks" should have a verified osmolarity which is a key indicator of how fast it can clear the stomach, thus potentially avoiding cramps.
The Gaspari Nutrition R&D Team is acutely aware of this which is why they developed Osm Technology. This "new way" of looking at carbohydrate drinks utilizes a proprietary method of tuning the electrolytes in solution with pure cyclic dextrin to get an optimal osmolality (mOsm).* Remember, lower osmolality = faster gastric clearance.
To prove our point, we knew full well we had to have a lower osmolarity than our competition. So, we spent the money and had our competitors products tested at a 3rd party laboratory to see where we stood. With some fine tuning using Osm Technology, Glycofuse® is surmised to have an outstanding osmolality compared to just about every product on the market, including the biggest brands out there.
LIQUID PER SCOOP
Add 1 scoop per 8-12 fl. oz. (236-354 mL) of water. Take before, during or after training.
SHAKER CUP OR WATER BOTTLE
Add 1 to 2 scoops of Glycofuse to your shaker cup or water bottle. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
DIRECTIONS AND USE FOR TEAM SPORTS:
Please use the following directions when mixing into larger containers such as a gallon jug or a 5 gallon cooler.
1 GALLON OF WATER
In a gallon jug of water, place funnel into the mouth, and add 12 scoops of Glycofuse to your gallon of water. Close the lid and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
5 GALLONS OF WATER
With 60 serving bottle, fill your water cooler with five gallons of water. Remove the scoop and add one full container of Gylcofuse to five gallons of water. Stir thoroughly for 30-45 seconds. Add 1 to 2 scoops of Glycofuse to your shaker cup or water bottle. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION+ is vastly superior.
CARBION+ is 100% Sugar-Free and delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training.
CARBION+ is an ideal source of Energy with 6 proven High-Performance Carbohydrates with essential Electrolytes for Hydration and plant extracts for superior absorption. Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take. Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance – shifting to fat or protein for workout energy is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.
