What is Raw Fructose?
Fructose is a source of carbohydrate, the macronutrient that has the function of providing energy. Each gram of fructose provides 4 calories.
It is characterised by the fact that it provides a slow source of energy, which does not cause intestinal discomfort or high insulin peaks. Its classification: it is part of the group of simple carbohydrates: it is a monosaccharide.
Raw Fructose is the recommended supplement for athletes who exercise for more than an hour and need to be able to maintain energy levels, progressively over time, for a longer period of time and promote the replenishment of hepatic glucose deposits.
Raw Fructose belongs to the new line of Endurance supplements from Life Pro. This range of sports supplements has been specially designed for endurance sports. It is recommended for all those who are looking for the optimal supply of nutrients to your body in the realization of long workouts in order to promote their recovery, maintain energy and improve performance.
What is Raw Fructose good for?
Its energy contribution:
It provides a source of energy that the body needs for recovery after training. It is a type of carbohydrate that is classified as low glycemic.
This index refers to the speed at which it is digested and transported in the blood as glucose: fructose performs these processes more slowly than other carbohydrates.
Unlike other carbohydrates that require a large insulin spike to be used, fructose, on the other hand, generates a much smaller spike. This is because it is absorbed in the small intestine via the GLUT-4 transporter, which is not insulin-dependent, unlike others, which use the GLUT-5 transporter, which is insulin-dependent.
It provides better control of diabetes.
Prevents digestive discomfort.
Due to the fact that it is a natural food for the digestive system.
Due to its slower and more progressive assimilation, it does not cause digestive discomfort. In addition, it helps to increase satiety.
Fructose is the most important source of glucose.
Fructose helps to replenish hepatic glucose stores that have been depleted and used up during training. It promotes recovery and can help prevent feelings of fatigue.
When to take Raw Fructose?
Before training: with the aim of loading the hepatic glucose stores and to promote the performance of the training or competition.
During training: in order to maintain optimal performance and prevent the onset of fatigue. Also, thanks to the advantage of its progressive digestion, it provides energy in a sustained manner over time.
Finish with a high level of protein.
At the end of training:The hepatic and hepatic glucose deposits will be practically empty at the end of training. Ingesting fructose promotes replenishment and better recovery.
How to take Raw Fructose?
Dissolve 30 grams of Malto Dextrin in 500 ml of water.
