HEALTHFARM® Way to Holistic Nutrition “ELITE SERIES” POWER CARBS | INSTANT ENERGY FORMULA| Carbohydrates for Weight Gain 1kg | Unflavored
This is a Vegetarian product.
- 100% PURE CARBS: HEALTHFARM® POWER CARBS is a dietary supplement made from 100% maltodextrin, which a polysaccharide (number of simple sugars connected together) produced from non-GMO corn. The power carb is produced from the enzymatic hydrolysis of corn starch followed by purification and spray drying. The resulting white powder is of high purity, free of soy, dairy, yeast, flavor or any other additives
- MALTODEXTRIN IS A GREAT CARB SOURCE: Maltodextrin holds an upper hand when compared to other carb sources because of its glycemic index (GI- the measure of how quickly a food source raises blood sugar and hence insulin levels). While monosaccharides like fructose, sucrose and dextrose are good sources of carbs, their glycemic rate is less than that of maltodextrin, which means they may not be digested quickly and does not raise insulin levels to any great degree.
- HELP REPLENISH GLYCOGEN STORES: In the recovery mode, your body tries to replace the carbohydrates that have been depleted or used up. Consumption of high GI foods like maltodextrin during this period helps to replenish muscles glycogen stores quickly. The pure carb will result in a quick energy boost and ideal level of insulin boost to maximize the uptake of nutrients from the bloodstream into the muscle cells. With the extra boost of energy, maltodextrin helps to improve endurance.
- THE IDEAL BULKING AGENT: By providing high calories, maltodextrin serves as a top source of fast calories and energy for those who intend to increase body mass. It has been found that a combination of maltodextrin with protein can promote enhanced glycogen recovery and stimulated muscle protein synthesis, help improve muscle strength, muscle power and sports performance. Combination of pure carb and protein may work as an effective option to increase body mass.
As a dietary supplement, HEALTHFARM® Power Carbs mixes easily. To Prepare: Simply add 1 scoop of power carbs to a blender, shaker cup or glass filled with 180-240 ml (6-8 oz) of water or your favourite beverage. Then blend, shake, or stir for about 15 -30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.
Power Carbs is maltodextrin, which is a carbohydrate source resulting from hydrolysis of non-GMO corn starch. Starch is a complex carbohydrate called polysaccharide composed of chains of glucose molecules. The process of hydrolysis produces a solution of glucose polymers of varying chain length. The solution is then filtered, concentrated and spray dried to obtain maltodextrin.
Maltodextrin powder obtained appears white, slightly hygroscopic, it is odourless, tasteless, and water-soluble, creates lump-free shake, digests rapidly and has functional characteristics.
The product is gluten-free, dairy-free, yeast-free and does not contain additives/fillers.
PROVIDES QUICK BOOST OF ENERGY: Maltodextrin is a reliable and fast source of calories and energy for bodybuilders and athletes who want to avoid fatigue during intense or competitive performance. It raises serum insulin levels quickly and offers quick bursts of energy.
VERSATILE: The fast-digesting carbohydrate is a versatile additive that can be used to increase texture, thickness, volume, the flavor of processed food. Maltodextrin can be used to replace sugar or fat in many food products such as ice cream, dried instant food formulations, sweets and beverages. In baked goods, maltodextrin stabilizes the ingredients for a smoother texture.
IMPROVES ENDURANCE PERFORMANCE: There is a close link between muscle glycogen content and its ability to execute repeated high intensity contractions. Reduced glycogen breakdown or increased muscle glycogen content helps reduce fatigue and support performance ability. Consuming maltodextrin decreases net glycogen breakdown during long duration exercise. As per studies, the maltodextrin effects remain the same for men and women.
FAST- DIGESTING/ LUMP-FREE SHAKE: Maltodextrin is a simple way to get a high-calorie boost for all those who struggle to consume the number of calories needed for successful bulking. Maltodextrin has low osmolarity (defined as a number of solute particles per litre of solution), which means it is very convenient to obtain isotonic or hypotonic drink that maximizes hydration in sportspeople. Its high solubility ensures a lump-free shake of perfect consistency.
SUPERIOR CARB THAN GLUCOSE & FRUCTOSE: Maltodextrin is a superior carb source when compared to glucose or fructose due to its ability to raise quick serum levels of glucose. While monosaccharides like fructose, glucose or disaccharide like sucrose are good sources of carbs, their glycemic value is less than that of maltodextrin.Maltodextrin being a polysaccharide is metabolized slower than dextrose, so there won’t be a quick drop of insulin and blood sugar levels as with dextrose or other carb sources.
