Energy output is a complex matter. We all need a certain amountof carbohydrates to ensure that our glycogen stores are fully stocked to ensure we can perform to our optimum ability during exercise.
This is an accepted fact.
Slightly more complicated is the matter of pre-workout energy continuation and post workout glycogen replenishment.
Different carbohydrate sources with different Glycemic measurements are required to satisfy these varying requirements. It’s additionally important that along with the triple-charged carbohydrate content of Battery +/- 3, amino acids that are vital to the muscle preservation process are also included.
This is why PhD invented Battery +/-3.
Step 1- Long and mid-term energy- Battery+/-3 contains fructose and maltodextrin to ensure that when taken before and during exercise, the blood sugar spike will not be so great that it impairs long and mid-term performance.
Fructose has a low glycemic rating (GI 23) so it’s conversion to blood sugar is slow and steady.
Maltodextrin has been used throughout the years as a complex carbohydrate, though in reality, it is sufficient for mid-term energy storage and additionally effective when used post exercise to replenish glycogen stores and ensure complete and efficient recovery from training.
Step 2- Immediate glycogen replenishment- High Impact carbs!- Dextrose monohydrate has a high-glycemic rating ensuring immediate and effective glycogen replenishment and an instant elevation of blood sugar for complete recovery.
This particular process becomes vital upon the conclusion of a workout.
This is the period when glycogen reserves have been drained and need immediate replenishment.
Step 3- Added Branched Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine- BCAA’s are considered the critical cluster of amino acids, the most vital of all.
ability to aid in the anti-catabolic process, L-Glutamine is a vital inclusion within Battery+/-3.
