International Protein Extreme Carbs helps your body restore and replenish the lost glycogen reserves post strenuous workouts. Glycogen is one of the most powerful sources of energy in the body. It is the storage form of the carbohydrate-derivative glucose. The liver and the skeletal muscles are the main store houses of glycogen in the body. Muscles reserve approximately twice as much glycogen as stored in the liver.
When you exercise these glycogen reserves are metabolised to release energy. Adequate availability of glycogen in the muscles will increase your power and stamina.
International Protein Extreme Carbs will help restore the exhausted glycogen reserves in your body. Glycogen synthesis takes place for up to six hours post exercise. The synthesis is at its peak during the first two hours. Insulin sensitivity is high during this time period and sugars are absorbed optimally to restore lost energy reserves.
Extreme Carbs has a mixture of fast, medium and slow absorbing carbs to fully utilise the entire phase of glycogen synthesis. Fast absorbing carbohydrates present in this post-workout supplement kick-start the glycogen synthesis and help recovery. They take full advantage of the favorable anabolic environment and rapidly replenish glycogen reserves.
Medium and slow absorbing carbohydrates resume and maintain glycogen synthesis for the entire phase. They help in relieving muscular soreness and pain, and also promote muscular growth.
Promilin TM present in International Protein Extreme Carbs enhances and augments the action of insulin in your skeletal muscles. It speeds up the glycogen synthesis and increases the sensitivity of cells to insulin. This helps create an optimum anabolic environment for protein synthesis. Promilin TM ensures glucose is used for the growth and repair of muscle tissues, and is not locked up as fat.
