CARB HP – HIGH PERFORMANCE CARB FUEL
The Most Advanced Technology in Carbohydrate Supplementation
CARB HP is a designer carbohydrate product created with the athlete in mind. Consisting of clinically studied performance carbohydrates, an innovative carb shuttling system and all-natural electrolytes to fuel the endurance capacity of all athletes!
The key ingredient in CARB HP is Cluster Dextrin®, a patented and clinically studied ‘supercarb’ that has demonstrated incredible endurance enhancements in elite athletes. When mixed in water, the high molecular weight Cluster Dextrin® has a low osmotic pressure and as a result it is quickly emptied from the stomach into the small intestine. This avoids cramping and nausea that can happen with sports drinks derived from small simple sugars. Once in the small intestine, Cluster Dextrin® quickly starts to breaks down to enter the bloodstream as glucose to fuel muscle energy. However the complex structure and large particle size of Cluster Dextrin® ensures that the rate of glucose availability is tempered to avoid a dramatic insulin spike and the crash aftermath. Instead glucose is released at a moderate rate to ensure that cellular metabolism is optimized to not only use glucose for energy but also available fat stores. This metabolic point of difference makes Cluster Dextrin® the most innovative carbohydrate source for athlete performance and high-endurance sports. In fact Cluster Dextrin® has been clinically studied in elite athletes and demonstrated up to 70% enhancement in time to exhaustion in endurance tests.
CARB HP combines three other high molecular weight carb sources with differing molecular structures to complement Cluster Dextrin®. High Molecular Weight Dextrin Polysaccharide is a large glucose polymer that is arranged as Amylose a linear glucose chain (1-4 linkage) that offers a slower rate of glucose release similar to Cluster Dextrin. Waxy Maize and Highly Branched Amylopectin are corn and potato derived forms of Amylopectin, a branched glucose polymer than includes both 1-4 and 1-6 linkages. This more branched structure allows for more enzymatic access and contrasts the other carb sources by offering a quick burst of available glucose for instant fuel. Overall a 4-stage carbohydrate system is generated with both rapid and sustained release carbohydrate sources.
In order to shuttle the glucose into muscle cells efficiently CARB HP contains a very unique pair of herbal extracts that target AMP-K, the cells metabolic activation switch. Rosa canina and Gynostemma pentaphyllum along with Chromium can activate AMP-K to trigger an uptake of glucose into cells, as well as initiate fat metabolism. AMP-K activation has been shown to help target damaging factors of aging, reduce fat storage, promote new mitochondria production, and the promotion of healthy blood glucose and lipids levels.
While ensuring carbohydrate levels are topped up while training is key, so is ensuring that electrolytes are balanced. CARB HP is fortified with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, and ancient deposit of sea salt mined in the Himalayan foothills that has a natural pink hue that can be attributed to the 80+ naturally occuring trace minerals and elements that are embedded within it’s unique crystalline structure.
