THE MOST COMPLETE CARBOHYDRATE FORMULA AVAILABLE!
New CARBO FREAK delivers a cutting-edge carbohydrate blend designed to provide your body with a fast-digesting and sustained energy source.
The four-carb blend is formulated to increase glycogen replenishment, enhance nutrient uptake and improve rehydration for greater strength, endurance and muscle recovery!
VITAMINS, MINERALS & ELECTROLYTES
The CARBO FREAK™ formula includes a vitamin/mineral blend and coconut water powder, which provides the electrolytes you need during intense exercise.
To ensure the carbohydrates are fully absorbed and used by your muscles, CARBO FREAK™ is formulated with an Insulin Sensitivity Complex and an Absorption Support Complex, including premium patented extracts to encourage efficient and maximum carbohydrate and nutrient uptake by the muscle cells.
HOW TO USE CARBO FREAK
Use CARBO FREAK™ before, during or after exercise to help maintain endurance, sustain energy levels and keep your muscles hydrated to go the distance!
WHY USE CARBO FREAK?
During an intense workout, muscles get depleted quickly of glycogen, their main source of energy. Without glycogen, fatigue sets in, intensity weakens, energy begins to fail and, sooner rather than later, you’re running out of energy during exercise. When glycogen is gone, your muscles will seek out alternative sources of energy, and it won’t all be from your fat stores, either.
Muscle catabolism— i.e., breakdown— will result, to feed your hardworking body. CARBO FREAK™ puts the brakes on glycogen depletion, providing a fast and sustained release of quick-absorbing natural carbohydrates, along with electrolytes to help replenish and maintain glycogen levels and cellular hydration in the muscles for continued workout energy and endurance.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND CARBO FREAK™
1) Cutting-Edge Carbohydrate Complex
Palatinose™ is a naturally sourced smart sugar that provides full carbohydrate energy in a more balanced way, resulting in a low glycemic effect. It helps to improve fat oxidation during physical activity leading to prolonged energy supply. Palatinose™ (isomaltulose) is purely based on sucrose from sugar beet. It is 100% vegan, kosher, halal and non-GMO. It is commercially produced by enzymatic rearrangement of the glycosidic bond between glucose and fructose. The functional carbohydrate Palatinose™ provides the body with the same amount of carbohydrate energy as sucrose does. But thanks to its unique glucose-fructose binding, the energy is released more slowly and not all at once. Its breakdown and uptake occurs along the entire small intestine.
Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin
Cyclic dextrin is a fast-absorbing carbohydrate because of its unique cyclic structure, allowing for faster digestion and breakdown. This results in quick uptake into the intestines and into the bloodstream, drawing with it essential nutrients needed by the muscles.
High-Molecular-Weight Waxy Maize Starch
Waxy maize starch has a high molecular weight and low osmolarity, allowing for quick digestion and rapid absorption into the bloodstream.
Potato Polysaccharide Starch
Potato starch is made up of amylopectin and amylose. Amylopectin is quickly digested and absorbed into the bloodstream. Amylose is a resistant, slower digesting starch compared to amylopectin.
2) Glucose Metabolism Vitamin & Mineral Complex
This antioxidant vitamin can help regulate blood glucose levels and can also provide protection against the catabolic stress hormone cortisol, which can be brought on by an intense workout.
This mineral plays a role in both muscular contraction and protein synthesis, and helps balance mineral content in your body. Magnesium also helps increase insulin sensitivity and improves glucose tolerance, making insulin receptors in your body more receptive.
Biotin & Chromium
Together this mineral and vitamin combination has been shown in studies to enhance carbohydrate metabolism, insulin receptor activity and sensitivity to glucose levels in the blood, helping improve how the body uses carbohydrates when ingested.
3) Natural Electrolyte Source
Coconut Water Powder
Loaded with natural electrolytes, minerals and amino acids, coconut water has been found to be as effective as commercial sports drinks for reducing dehydration, enhancing rehydration and enhancing blood volume after a workout.
4) Glucose Metabolism & Insulin Sensitivity Support Complex
Cinnamon improves insulin sensitivity and glucose uptake. It works similarly to insulin in the body, by clearing and lowering glucose levels from the blood when present.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like compound. It’s considered the “universal antioxidant” because of its powerful and unique properties. R-ALA is the biologically active ALA isomer and the form that’s found naturally in the body. R-ALA is the only form of ALA that can be used by the body. R-ALA can improve insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism.
D-pinitol is found naturally in chickpeas and lentils and has been shown to help increase GLUT-4 translocation to the surface of muscle cells, allowing for an increase in blood glucose uptake by muscle cells.
5) ActiGin® Performance Support Complex
Panax notoginseng & Chestnut Rose
ActiGin™ combines the strength of two powerful compounds: tienchi ginseng, a highly fractionated form of Panax notoginseng, and chestnut rose, which is known for its super-concentrated content of vitamin C, superoxide dismutase and other powerful antioxidants.
6) AstraGin® Absorption Support Complex
Panax notoginseng & Astragalus
AstraGin™ combines the effectiveness of two well-known, traditionally used ingredients— astragalus and highly fractionated Panax notoginseng— into one powerful and patented complex. Clinical studies suggest that AstraGin™ can support the absorption of various nutrients, including amino acids.
