The indispensable carbohydrate source
Maltodextrin is a mixture of different carbohydrates. The name maltodextrin is composed of maltose (malt sugar) and dextrose (glucose). This is a mixture of single and double sugars, as well as short and long-chain multiple sugars, it is barely sweet and almost tasteless. Maltodextrin is especially popular with athletes who are currently in the mass phase. To successfully build mass, you need a calorie surplus. With the help of a weight gainer athletes can quickly deliver a high number of calories. In addition to maltodextrin, the weight gainers also contain protein so that the muscles can be optimally supplied with all the necessary nutrients. In addition, maltodextrin increases insulin levels, increasing the rate of delivery of anabolic substances, such as creatine or BCAA, into the muscles. But also endurance athletes rely on the rapidly available energy, which they deliver by the intake of maltodextrin. In addition, maltodextrin is absorbed slowly by the body. As a result, insulin levels increase less quickly and only the amount of hormones required by the body is released. Compared to dextrose, maltodextrin binds less water, which results in less water being delivered to the small intestine, which makes it more tolerable. Many passionate endurance athletes often have a very low weight due to the training, in order to gain some body mass, supplementation with a weight gainer is thus worthwhile for them. Thus, especially after intense training, it is important to replenish the muscle's glycogen stores, so that the cells are energized and do not have to rely on the body's own tissues (muscles) to generate energy. IronMaxx's Weight Gainer Titanium can quickly deliver high-quality carbohydrates (including maltodextrin), proteins and calories that are currently needed after a hard workout. The proteins consisted of a valuable mixture of four different proteins of animal origin. The intake should be in the morning and in the evening, but just before and after training.
