WHAT IS MALTODEXTRIN?

Carbohydrate is a vital energy source for both endurance performance and high intensity intermittent activities. Athletes and bodybuilders aim to maximise their body’s carbohydrate stores in preparation for competition using a process known as ‘carb loading’ or ‘carbing up’. This allows endurance athletes to increase the amount of fuel available to the working muscles during prolonged activity, such as running the marathon, while body builders employ this technique to maximise muscle size and definition.

Maltodextrin is an easy-to-digest Complex Carbohydrate made from corn, potato or rice starch, which can provide a rapid supply of energy. It is often contained in sports drinks to allow athletes to refuel and rehydrate simultaneously during exercise, as it is absorbed as rapidly as glucose. It can also provide the extra calories required to increase muscle mass, in addition to various other benefits.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MALTODEXTRIN POWDER SUPPLEMENTATION?

The use of Maltodextrin Powder Supplementation is supported by a number of scientific studies, which demonstrate the wide variety of performance benefits it can provide.

These include:

Increasing muscle Protein Synthesis, resulting in greater muscle hypertrophy and strength, improving Anaerobic Power, improving endurance performance and enhancing post-exercise recovery.

QUESTION

I am hoping you can answer a few questions for me. 

I’m a long distance runner taking on 100 plus mile races. I’m wanting to know if Time 4 Carbs is enough to sustain the bodies needs over a period of 24hrs plus with some added salt.

A golden hour for an ultra-runner would be 40-60g of carbs and 100-200 calories per hour. Most runners do not finish races due to gastro issues which stops them from eating. Also, after a period of your body being under stress it is difficult to physically eat. Once the body stops taking on nutrition it can’t maintain exercise. 

I have been using Time 4 Carbs for approx. 18 months as a supplement to food and salt. I would like to go that little bit further and see if just Time 4 Carbs with added salt is enough to sustain me in the latter stages of a race. 

There are a couple of brands that do this but sadly these make me feel sick quite quickly. As yet Time 4 Carbs doesn’t. 

If in your eyes if it’s fit for my purpose what else would I need to add. ie, electrolytes etc?

ANSWER

As far as adding to Time 4 Carbs and electrolytes, I would simply include a source of non-protein amino acids at 1.5% of any solution, i.e. 15 grams per litre. For this purpose, Time 4 Intra-Workout is perfect. The addition of amino acids/protein at these levels is known to improve enhance glycogen resynthesis, however, this specific blend is more appropriate because of the added glycine. This is a range put together by people who train for people who train, we understand the nuances of taking supplements in and around the competitive arena, rehydration, glycogen resynthesis, muscle preservation, making a weight class, recovery and, in particular, the considerations of how this may impact the GI tract in the real world. We could have the best flavours and most relevant research, but if a product causes an upset stomach in the real world then it’s worse than useless in our eyes. This is exactly why we added glycine to this formula, supplementation with glycine is known to reduce bloating, abdominal cramps, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, etc in endurance athletes. Glycine is not sufficiently synthesized from the diet once we’re put under extreme stress either: As a precursor to our primary antioxidant, glutathione, this spells trouble.

Glycine plays a vital role as a neurotransmitter in our CNS during periods of psychological stress, even influencing our ability to focus, tolerate pain or simply take food on board. The dosage found in Time 4 Intra-Workout is equivalent to that used in pain relief studies.

As glycine becomes depleted, our immune system starts to falter and pro-inflammatory cytokine levels really become elevated, glycine intake can play a protective role on intestinal epithelial cells that is uniquely independent from this impact on inflammation too. During extreme stress, injury or sepsis, glycine even helps protect our organs from ischemia, shock and reperfusion injuries.

I hope this has been of help.
