CARBION+ delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training.
Infused with all 4 key electrolytes: Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and Sodium.
Recover from intense training and replenish glycogen stores.
CARBION+ helps to limit the secretion of cortisol levels; the hormone that breaks down muscle.
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.
HYDRATE – You need to provide your body with an adequate supply of electrolytes to maintain specific bodily functions, so you can perform at your peak. Electrolytes are essentially salts that can carry an electrical charge. The cells in your body rely on electrolytes to control cell membrane stability and to carry the electrical charges needed for muscle contractions caused by nerve impulses. Without electrolytes, the cells in your body couldn’t communicate with each other or perform these essential functions. Both normal body function, and athletic performance, are severely compromised if adequate levels of electrolytes are not present. One of the most obvious signs of electrolyte loss is muscle cramping, but cramping is your body’s last warnings that it cannot continue normal muscle function without electrolyte replenishment. By the time you feel cramping, your performance has already been diminished for some time.
RECOVER – Most athletes know that protein is extremely important post workout but carbohydrates are just as important for recovery. During intense exercise, your muscles use glucose and glycogen for energy. There is a point at which blood glucose levels (available energy) and glycogen levels (stored energy) get so low that intense exercise can’t continue. There just isn’t enough available energy for your muscles to use so your body secrets cortisol – this is your body’s “stress” hormone and it has very catabolic effects. What cortisol does is eat up muscle tissue for protein and convert it into glucose. The net result is a loss of muscle tissue. Post workout supplementation with Carbion+ can help prevent this.
The athlete’s body has one primary goal in mind after each workout and that is to replace glycogen storage. Consuming carbohydrates during and post workout increases plasma glucose and insulin concentration, and makes it possible for the body to resynthesize glycogen at a higher rate. If you don’t have enough carbohydrates post workout, your body will crave them all day. Your body is programmed so that if you don’t eat enough of something, it will demand it. Eating more carbohydrates as part of the recovery meal will serve three purposes: 1) replacing glycogen storage, 2) providing essential nutrients to the athlete’s body, and 3) making the athlete faster/stronger over time.
An added benefit of supplementing with Carbion+ post workout is that it will also help improve the effectiveness of your protein, further aiding recovery. Cyclo-D, combined with BCAAs has been demonstrated to result in higher blood leucine levels compared to BCAAs alone or BCAAs with glucose. Cyclo-D has been shown to be more effective than glucose in reducing inflammatory stress.
