What is CarbTech?
CarbTech is the ultimate during/post workout supplement designed to improve post-workout muscle recovery, increase muscle building, and reduce muscle soreness. Consume CarbTech intra-workout or promptly post-workout to jumpstart muscle recovery and optimize the anabolic window.
High Molecular Weight Carbohydrates
- Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin 15,000 mg
- Isoleucine 2g
Carbohydrates are one of the most important nutrients. Carbohydrates maintain blood glucose levels and maximize glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue. However, carbohydrates can only be stored in the body at 1% of total body weight. Thus, carbohydrates must be replenished constantly by ingesting foods, drinks and supplements. High molecular weight (HMW) carbohydrates have several properties that are optimal for pre-, intra- and post-workout supplementation.
The molecular weight of HMW carbohydrate is approximately 400,000 Daltons (Da) whereas low molecular weight (LMW) carbohydrate is approximately 180 Da. HMW carbohydrate drink does not impose a strain to the stomach. A randomized controlled clinical trial found that the ingestion of HMW carbohydrate increased glycogen re-synthesis and enhanced work output during exercise better then LMW carbohydrate.
- Creatine Monohydrate 2000mg
- Creatine Gluconate 2000mg
- Magnesium Creatine Chelate 1000mg
Creatine is one of the most clinically validated supplements with over 200 studies to date. The primary benefit of creatine is an improvement in strength and power output during exercise. When used in conjunction with resistance exercise, it helps to increase lean mass. It has also been shown to increase anaerobic exercise capacity.
Each serving of CarbTech contains 5,000mg of a synergistic creatine blend.
Creatine monohydrate is the most common type of creatine on the market. It is also the form that has been most scientifically researched and tested. Creatine magnesium chelate is produced by binding magnesium to the creatine molecule. A study from 2003 suggests that creatine magnesium chelate could improve performance without the added water weight that creatine usually brings. Creatine gluconate gluconate is produced by binding gluconic acid to the creatine molecule. Creatine gluconates is more soluble than regular creatine monohydrate thanks to the higher solubility of gluconic acid.
Lactic Acid Buffers
- L-Taurine 2,000 mg
- Beta Alanine 2,000 mg
- Sodium Bicarbonate 500 mg
During short term (anaerobic) exercise, ATP and creatine phosphate are used up within the first 7 seconds of training. This signals the metabolism of glycogen to produce energy for your body. This process is known as glycolysis. Lactic acid is a biproduct of glycolysis created by the breaking down of pyruvate.
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in type 2 muscle fiber and acts similarly to creatine in that it expands muscle cells and helps increase cell volume. A 2003 study published by Japanese researchers examined men who were told to perform bicycle exercises until they were exhausted. After taking taurine supplements for seven days, the men showed significant increases in VO2max and time until exhaustion sets in.
When beta-alanine is ingested, it turns into the molecule carnosine, which acts as an acid buffer in the body. Increased stores of carnosine offer protection from exercise-induced lactic acid production. In a 4-week study with 20 elite combat soldiers, beta-alanine improved jumping power, shooting speed, and marksmanship.
Sodium bicarbonate is a compound that naturally occurs in our blood. Sodium bicarbonate has as a buffer effect and helps neutralise the acid released during exercise.
Trace Minerals and Electrolytes
Minerals help your body grow, develop, and stay healthy. The body uses minerals to perform many different functions — from maintaining bone health to transmitting nerve impulses. Some minerals are even used to make hormones or maintain a normal heartbeat.
Electrolytes provide critical nutrients for energy production, muscle function and fluid balance. Any loss of body fluids, for example perspiration, increases the need for electrolytes.
The Bottom Line
CarbTech fuels your body with high molecule weight carbohydrates, creatine, electrolytes, essential trace minerals and lactic acid buffers. CarbTech in 6 words – More Reps, Better Workouts, Faster Recovery
