Delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training!
Why Do I Need a Carb Drink?
Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION is vastly superior.
Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take.
Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance ? shifting to fat metabolism and protein breakdown via gluconeogenesis is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.
Supplementing with carbs is one of the best ways to prevent cortisol levels from rising and subsequently, catabolic muscle tissue breakdown from taking place.
Recovery from intense training and replenishment of glycogen stores.
CARBION, A Better Way to Power Your Workouts
What CARBION has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy.
Frequently asked questions
How do you take CARBION+?
As the label indicates you can take CARBION+ Pre, During and Post Training. Clearly each timing has its benefits.
If you are taking it Pre-Training the main goal is to LOAD UP and fill your muscles full of glycogen for maximal performance. This should really only be done when you have depleted your glycogen. So, in the case where you are Cycling your carbs by taking them only around training time and eliminating them outside of training, you would eat few, or no carbs and focus on fats and proteins. Approximately 45 to 60 minutes before training, take 2 servings. You would also take an additional 2 servings following training.
CARBION+ is most commonly taken during intense training. Mix prior to your workout or event and start consuming 2 servings 15 to 20 minutes into your session. You will initially begin your training by tapping into your existing glycogen stores and as CARBION+ absorbs and begins working your body will naturally shift to its most preferred and efficient fuel; glucose. This will effectively power your training, spare glycogen, blunt catabolism and power your recovery.
Taking CARBION+ immediately following your event or training is an excellent way to fuel recovery and replenish glycogen stores. This can be combined with CARBION+ taken during training if you have an exceptionally long training session or event. Your level of fatigue should be your guide.
Why not just take Dextrose?
If your goal is spiking your insulin to maximum levels, this is your best and cheapest bet. While there are distinct benefits to having a lot of insulin, the negatives outweigh the positives. Your blood sugar level will escalate very rapidly and the body responds with a large amount of insulin. This will bring you from a very high level of blood sugar to a very low, often hypoglycemic level very rapidly ? meaning your blood sugar levels will drop. This will give you the urge to quickly ingest more (usually simple carbs) to relieve the feelings of weakness and lethargy.
