Carbohydrate supplements can be an effective way to improve your workouts, promote muscle growth, and facilitate recovery. Carbs play an essential role in energy production, so supplementing with them is a great way to help you sustain high-intensity training sessions, prevent muscle breakdown and promote muscle growth.
Carbohydrate supplements are generally flavourless and easy to add to your pre or post-workout shake, water, or meal. Carbohydrate formulas are easy to digest and absorb, making it an ideal choice for those who struggle to consume enough carbohydrates through whole food sources alone or those looking to put on weight.
ADDING NUTRIENT-RICH CARB SUPPLEMENTS TO YOUR DIET
Carbohydrate supplements are typically flavourless and primarily utilise carbohydrate sources like maltodextrin, monosaccharides, disaccharides, insulin, pectin and more. When it comes to choosing the right one, it is essential to consider how you will take it. The flavourless options are great if you’re combining them with other supps, but if you plan on taking them alone, you may opt for something with some kind of taste or flavour.
Gen-Tec's Pure Carbs supports muscle growth and recovery while assisting with glycogen replenishment, ATP production, and energy levels and combines three different sources of carbohydrates. Switch Nutrition Carbs offers a stackable option that can help you gain muscle, improve strength, stimulate glycogen replenishment, support muscle recovery, and enhance absorption of high GI carbs.
