Why use it?
Why use carbohydrates, digestive enzymes, and an agent that reduces blood sugar? Simple. Many athletes need instant sources of energy for competitions, crossfit training, high-intensity training sessions, triathlons, and you can imagine many more scenarios. While Oats Plus is great for trying to add lean muscle post workout, it simply cannot meet the on-demand needs of the previous situations listed above. Rilose is a great carbohydrate with a high-glycemic rating, but it is not the only high-glycemic, rapidly absorbed carbohydrate on the planet.
Raw Dynamix set out to design an all-in-one formula that provided multiple high-glycemic carbohydrates for rapid absorption. We noticed everyone uses maltodextrin in their carbohydrate powders. For us, that was never an option, its inferior to the carbohydrate sources we have listed AND has the potential to leave the user feeling bloated or nauseated in large amounts. For us that would not work. We wanted a powder that mixed easily in any liquid, was rapidly absorbed, did not cause gastric bloating or other issues with digestion, and provided clean, natural, sustained energy. RD did more and more research, looked at other products on the market, and decided to use a blend of high-glycemic carbohydrates to accomplish our goal. Raw Dynamix chose waxy maize, dextrose, and potato starch as ingredients of this carbohydrate powder. Each individual ingredient has been shown to be a great high-glycemic carbohydrate choice for pre-, intra-, and post-workout carbohydrate supplementation. Waxy maize is rapidly absorbed. Dextrose (also known as glucose) is absorbed directly into the bloodstream during digestion. Our body uses dextrose (glucose) as the primary source of energy.1 Potato starch is a long chain, high molecular weight, carbohydrate that rivals waxy maize in terms of it quick absorption and ability to provide energy. Having accomplished this, PN began wondering what else could we add to insure that the carbohydrates were absorbed and utilized by the body as fast as possible.
Since we already believe in digestive enzymes, and we have them in-house, we decided to include Carbogen in the formula as well. Carbogen is a patented digestive enzyme that helps the body process and absorb carbohydrates faster. We already offer it in as an option to most of our protein and meal replacement powders, but with CarboSLIN its included in the formula. These natural digestive enzymes aid the body in breaking down carbohydrates faster for utilization. This is exactly what we are looking for. Faster absorption an utilization. We still thought we could do more to this product and make something totally unique. And we did!
Banaba leaf powder is a natural supplement that has a positive effect on blood sugar, specifically high blood sugar. Banaba leaf has caught the eye of medical experts interested in finding ways of naturally lowering blood sugar. Experts believe that corosolic acid, found in banaba leaf powder, naturally mimics the function of insulin by aiding the metabolism of glucose. Corosolic acid may work like insulin to reduce blood sugar levels by transporting glucose (dextrose) directly into cells and out of the bloodstream. This is where the benefit of banaba leaf powder and its inclusion in CarboSLIN is beneficial. When blood sugar spikes, we want to get those carbohydrates out of the bloodstream and into the cells where they are most beneficial and the body can fully use them. Banaba allows this to happen. Think of banaba leaf powder as a high speed train that directly drives the carbohydrates from the blood, into the cells for use as energy or to begin recovery. Exactly what we are looking for! This is something totally unique in terms of carbohydrate powders.
Whether training for endurance, increasing muscular size, or needing to recover after an intense workout. CarboSLIN is everything in a carbohydrate powder you could want.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1-2 servings with 12-20 fluid ounces of your favorite beverage before, during, or after intensive exercise.
