What is Maltodextrin?
Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide produced from starch by partial hydrolysis. It is a glucose polymer and is considered to be a complex carbohydrate although it has an extremely high glycemic index (GI) rating of 110. Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise, leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. It is important to refuel the bodies glycogen stores quickly after intense exercise. We recommend consuming Maltodextrin within a four-hour period of training, as the benefits are optimal when the glycogen stores in skeletal muscle are lowest.
What can Maltodextrin be taken with?
Maltodextrin is often considered the carbohydrate of choice and is combined with other supplements such as Whey Protein, Creatine and amino acids. It is a popular pre, intra and post workout drink among bodybuilders, with benefits also for cyclists and triathletes.
