International Protein Extreme Carbs helps your body restore and replenish lost glycogen reserves from muscle after strenuous workouts. Glycogen is the storage form of the carbohydrate-derivative glucose, which is a powerful source of energy in the body. The liver and the skeletal muscles store the majority of glycogen in the body, with muscles reserve approximately twice that of liver glycogen.
When you exercise these glycogen reserves are broken-down to release energy. Having plenty of muscle glycogen increases power, stamina and perceived energy levels when exercising. Extreme Carbs helps to restore exhausted glycogen reserves in your body, which can take up to six hours post exercise. Muscle glycogen 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.
International Protein Extreme Carbs is 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.
