|Cluster Dextrin® (Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin)|
Fast-acting carbohydrates like dextrose and sucrose result in rapid blood-sugar spikes and delay gastric emptying (1). The result of consuming these carbohydrates is often a “heavy stomach” sensation and a short burst in energy followed by crashing.
That’s obviously not what you want before hitting the gym or whenever you need to perform your best athletically. In contrast, Cluster Dextrin® has a distinct molecular that allows it to be rapidly emptied from the stomach into the intestines, making it more suitable for athletes and gym-goers who want an easily digestible source of lasting energy (2).
Clinical studies of elite athletes and healthy adult volunteers have shown that cyclic dextrin significantly increases peak performance capacity and reduces rates of perceived exertion (RPE) during exercise. Glucose-containing sports beverages, on the other hand, were no more effective than plain water (3, 4).
In addition, supplementing with cyclic dextrin after training helps quickly replenish muscle glycogen and create a more anabolic environment for maximal recovery, especially when combined with a quality protein source (5, 6).
