PURE CARBOHYDRATE SUPPLEMENTS - THE MOST EFFICIENT FUEL FOR EXERCISING

As the most efficient fuel for the exercising muscles, carbohydrates are the primary source of energy during high intensity activities. Thus carbohydrates are the most important sources of energy for athletes. No matter what sport you play, carbohydrates provide the energy that fuels muscle contractions. To perform at your maximum level, and avoid running out of energy during exercise, you have to start exercising with full carbohydrate stores, refuel them during exercise and replenish them after exercise to be ready for the next workout.

CARBOHYDRATE SUPPLEMENTS IN-DEPTH

Carbohydrate is arguably the most important source of energy for athletes, because carbohydrates are the major energy source for high intense activity like weight training or sprinting. In the human digestive system carbohydrate chains breakdown into smaller molecules, including glucose, fructose and galactose that get absorbed and used as energy. Any glucose not needed right away gets stored in the muscles and the liver in the form of glycogen. Glycogen is an easily accessible source of energy for high intensity exercise. It supplies the energy need of short, intense bouts of exercise from sprinting to weight lifting because it is easily and instantly accessible. To perform at your maximaum level, and avoid running out of energy during exercise, you have to start exercising with full glycogen stores, refuel them during exercise and replenish them after exercise to be ready for the next workout. Adequate carbohydrate intake is also important to prevent protein breakdown. If the body doesn’t have enough carbohydrate to supply its energy need, amino acids are broken down to make glucose for energy. Because the primary role of amino acids are to serve as the building blocks for muscles, bone, skin, hair, and other tissues, relying on protein for energy can limit your ability to build and maintain tissues.
