Dextrose is the most effective and cost-efficient post-workout carbohydrate available. Research confirms that it replenishes muscle glycogen levels quickly and enhances the uptake of creatine and carnitine by your muscle fibers, which makes Post JYM Fast-Digesting Carb (Dextrose) the perfect companion to the Post JYM Active Ingredients Matrix.
When taken together, there is no better way to recover from your workouts, build muscle mass, and increase strength than with the complete Post JYM system of active ingredients and fast carbs. Plus, the delicious, refreshing taste of Post JYM makes it a supplement you'll look forward to drinking after every workout.
Post Jym Carbs Benefits
Fast carbs are necessary to replenish the muscle glycogen that you burned during the workout as quickly as possible.
When carbs are consumed immediately postworkout, a supercompensation of muscle glycogen stores is possible. In fact, delaying carb consumption by just 2 hours has been shown to reduce the rate of glycogen replenishment by 50%.
Another benefit of high-glcyemic carbs is the insulin spike that they deliver. A post-workout increase in insulin helps maximize the uptake of creatine and carnitine (included in Post JYM Active Ingredients Matrix) by the muscle cells.
Dextrose is one of the fastest-digesting carbohydrates you can consume. It’s essentially glucose (what blood sugar is) and therefore needs no digesting and is absorbed by the body almost immediately.
When should you take it?
As a Dietary Supplement, mix 1 scoop of Post JYM Fast-Digesting Carb™ into 16-32 oz. water, preferably within 30 minutes after workouts along with Post JYM Active Ingredients Matrix™. For endurance athletes, mixing one to two scoops of Post JYM Fast-Digesting Carb in water can be used to sip on during prolonged exercise for energy and hydration.
