Universal Nutrition Carbo Plus
What is Universal Nutrition Carbo Plus?
Universal Nutrition Carbo Plus is a pure carbohydrate powder ideal for workout nutrition to increase performance and recovery.
This has been designed to provide long lasting energy and the fuel you need to not only train hard but also recover from it as well.
Carbohydrates are the bodies preferred source of energy. These are stored in the body as glucose in the blood stream and glycogen in the muscles and liver.
This is what your body runs on during exercise.
With this in mind it is very important to ensure you have sufficient carbohydrate intake in your diet especially around training times.
If you want to perform at your best it's critical you have the fuel you need to do so.
Carbohydrates also stimulate the release of insulin which is a very powerful anabolic/anti-catabolic hormone. This acts as a nutrient driver shoving essential nutrients such as amino acids and creatine into the muscle cell where they are actually required.
The other advantage of carbohydrates/insulin is that they act as a cortisol blocker. Cortisol is a stress hormone that breaks down muscles and intense exercise can increase its production so getting in fast acting carbohydrate source to avoid this is ideal for maximum recovery.
