Dextrose Description from NOW
Dextrose (also known as glucose) is a monosaccharide or simple sugar that is about 30% less sweet than cane sugar. It is derived entirely from corn, is low cost and contains no fructoseor lactose.
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 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.
