Dextrose, or glucose as it's also known, is a monosaccharide that is
approximately 30% less sweet than pure or refined cane sugar, and is not
associated with either fructose or lactose. It is derived entirely from corn,
making it natural, effective, and easily utilized by the body. Its fine texture
and moderate sweetness make dextrose versatile for a wide range of applications.
However, it offers an especially important effect for athletes. As a simple
sugar, it is well-tolerated by most individuals with healthy blood sugar levels,
and can be consumed before, during and after the most intense training sessions.
From an athletic performance perspective, dextrose can help ensure that
hard-worked muscles are not deprived the protein and nutrients they need to
recover, repair and replenish. Dextrose has a high glycemic index (GI) rating
which allows it to enter the bloodstream very quickly. This action stimulates a
powerful and almost instantaneous insulin response. Insulin is a natural
hormone with strong anabolic properties that helps drive nutrients into the
cells of hungry muscle fibers, such as creatine monohydrate, beta-alanine, L-arginine,
L-carnitine and others. NOW® Dextrose is 100% pure and manufactured under NOW's
strict quality standards.
