Dextrose also known as glucose is a simple sugar monosaccharide that is the primary source of energy for the body.* Dextrose is approximately 25% less sweet than pure or refined cane sugar, and is not associated with either fructose or lactose. It has a fine texture, mixes easily, and is moderately sweet these traits make it extremely versatile. In addition, as a monosaccharide, dextrose is easily absorbed and utilized by the body, it has a high glycemic index GI rating which indicates that it enters the bloodstream very quickly and is well-tolerated by most individuals with normal blood sugar responses.
Dextrose stimulates the body to drive, not only glucose, but amino acids and other nutrients into cells.* Dextrose thus makes energy readily available to working muscles and helps to maintain glycogen stores.* In addition, dextrose also helps to make important nutrients, such as creatine and branched-chain aminos, available for use by muscle tissue.* From an athletic performance perspective therefore, it can help fuel intense activity, maintain exercise endurance, and support recovery from exercise.
Dextrose can be consumed before, during, and after the most intense training sessions. NOW Sports Dextrose is derived from non-GMO corn and manufactured under NOWs strict quality standards.
