WHY DO I NEED CARBION+?
Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION+ is vastly superior.
CARBION+ is 100% Sugar-Free and delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training.
CARBION+ is an ideal source of Energy with 6 proven High-Performance Carbohydrates with essential Electrolytes for Hydration and plant extracts for superior absorption. Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take. Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance – shifting to fat or protein for workout energy is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.
Supplementing with carbs is one of the best ways to prevent cortisol levels from rising and subsequently, catabolic muscle tissue breakdown from taking place. This is a major factor as to why taking CARBION+ results in a more rapid recovery from intense training. If you’re training hard, supplying high-quality carbohydrates during training improves performance & recovery with every workout.
NOT ALL CARBS ARE CREATED EQUAL
What you see in our formula are truly engineered carbs with research that shows how these complex and highly branched carbs behave in the body. We have taken 6 carbohydrates, all with much, much higher complexity than a sugar and then provided a range of complexity, not unlike what you would find in food like rolled, cooked oats.
The degree of complexity of carbohydrates indicates the length of the chain of glucose molecules; at the very low end you have monosaccharides, only a single glucose molecule such as dextrose or fructose. The larger the chain gets, the longer it takes enzymes to break down the links that bind them together. This is where the glycemic index (GI) comes from; the highest numbers come from the simplest, shortest chains because they are absorbed extremely quickly and the most complex and longest chains, are the lowest numbers.
This is due to the time required for the responsible enzyme to break down the long chain polysaccharides into single glucose, galactose or fructose molecules that can be absorbed. It is a common myth that these larger chain polysaccharides can be directly absorbed, they cannot. The human digestive tract only absorbs simple sugar molecules. Since these very large chains require such a large amount of digestion, they absorb over a longer period of time.
HOW DOES CARBION+ WORK?
What CARBION+ has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy. Specifically, CARBION+ has 5 types of varying complexities of carbohydrates. To best understand how CARBION+ works, it’s helpful to compare it to a typical sports performance drink often made up of dextrose, sucrose or fructose.
Drinks with a high osmotic pressure, such as drinks made up of simple sugars, are held in the stomach much longer before they are sent to the upper small intestine to be absorbed, and therefore readily available for the body to convert to energy, or fuel. While in the stomach, the drink with the simple sugars provides no fuel for training because it has not reached the place where absorption can take place. It also leads to uncomfortable stomach bloating and because the sugars once they move to the small intestine are passed through the gut very quickly, it can lead to a rapid sugar dump and subsequent crash.
CARBOHYDRATES ONLY ABSORB IN THE SMALL INTESTINES. NO CARBS ARE ABSORBED IN THE STOMACH.
- Simple sugars stay in stomach longer
- Once in the small intestines absorption happens very rapidly
- Rapid absorption increases blood sugar and increases insulin
- Complex carbs (high-molecular weight) are released from the stomach quickly
- Due to their long chain structure, enzymes must break them down
- Absorption takes place over a longer duration
- More sustained, longer release into the blood stream and less insulin at once
Drinks with a low osmotic pressure, such as CARBION+, are emptied from the stomach to the small intestine much quicker. However, due to the fact that CARBION+ is made up of varying complexities of slow to fast absorbing carbohydrates, the rate at which they are absorbed by the small intestine is much slower.
In addition to the physiological advantages that the lower osmotic pressure provides, CARBION+ has two other advantages that provide an even greater benefit. One is the electrolytes within the formula. Fortified with 4 key electrolytes including: Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Sodium. This provides an even lower osmolality within the formula and increases the level of hydration of the athlete consuming it.
The second advantage is the blend of three plant extracts; Prickly Pear Extract, Bitter Melon Extract and D-Pinitol that help to reduce the threshold at which insulin receptors trigger to signal cells to absorb nutrients. Simply stated, less insulin is required to initiate the uptake of blood glucose into cells, meaning more actual fuel in the muscle and less in the blood.
