EXTREME CARBS Energy &Glycogen Recovery Formula has been specifically developed to enhancepost-workout glycogen synthesis, improve anabolic recovery and providea convenient source of energy rich carbohydrates.
Glycogenreserves become depleted during physical activities, like weighttraining or sport, stimulating the body to store glycogen. Glycogensynthesis occurs for 4-6 hours after exercise, with the most rapid rateoccurring in the first 2 hours. At this time insulin sensitivity is atits peak so there is an enhanced ability to absorb sugars needed toreplenish vital energy reserves. To maximize your recovery, EXTREMECARBS provides rapid, moderate and slowly absorbed carbohydrates and apowerful insulin potentiator to help promote glycogen synthesis andmaximise insulin sensitivity.
EXTREMECARBS provides high Glycemic Index (G.I) glucose to initiate muscleglycogen replacement and take advantage of the body's natural recoverysystems. The glycogen recovery formulation is supported with fructose,which preferentially restores liver glycogen. The combination ofglucose and fructose has the ability to further increase insulinlevels, enhancing the body's anabolic state.
MediumLength Glucose Polymers continue to supply a steady stream of glucoseto depleted muscles while easily digested, low-allergy rice starchbreaks down more slowly, providing glycogen replenishing carbohydratesfor the entire peak glycogen synthesis phase.
EXTREMECARBS is far more advanced than standard glycogen replenishment drinksand basic glucose polymer products. To ensure that high levels ofenergy replenishing carbs get into your depleted muscles where they areneeded, EXTREME CARBS contains PromilinTM. Thisrevolutionary new ingredient has been shown to promote glucose-inducedinsulin release and may assist with the transport of glucose toskeletal muscle, where it can be used for energy, recovery and musclegrowth, rather than be stored as bodyfat.
Derived fromfenugreek seeds, research shows the unique bioactive compound inPromilinTM (4-hydroxyisoleucine) encourages the body to use insulinmore efficiently, improves insulin sensitivity, promotes lean musclemass and aids anabolic recovery.
EXTREME CARBS has a neutral, mildly sweet taste so it can be added toother foods, especially protein shakes, without affecting their tasteor making them unbearably sweet. Varying the amount of liquid you addwill give you a thinner or thicker consistency depending on whether youwant a light, refreshing post-workout recovery drink or a thicker, morefilling meal replacement.
EXTREME CARBS is the most comprehensive High Energy Multi-PhaseCarbohydrate Recovery formulation available for athletes serious aboutresults.
Who should use International Protein EXTREME CARBS?
Men& women over the age of 15 who undertake high intensity physicaltraining programs, either anaerobic or aerobic, three or more days perweek. Training activities include, but are not limited to weighttraining (bodybuilding, power-lifting), boxing, martial arts, football,rugby, track and field, swimming, cycling and motor sports.
EXTREMECARBS is designed to provide energy rich carbohydrates and assistmuscle glycogen replenishment, muscular endurance and reduced musclebreakdown in highly active individuals, especially elite athletes. Exact results will depend on the type of training program used.

Directions for use:
Recovery: Take 80g* mixed with 200 - 400ml water immediately after training. Recommended Serving size is 1.0 - 1.5g/kg bodyweight.
For optimum recovery, combine with International Protein TRI-WHEY at a rate of 0.6 - 0.7g TRI-WHEY per kg bodyweight.
*Based on 1g/kg for an 80kg individual. Use more or less EXTREME CARBS based on your bodyweight.
General Use: At other times of day, combine EXTREME CARBS with International ProteinPROTEIN SYNERGY 5 for a flexible meal replacement or pre-workout meal. Recommended Serving size is 0.5 - 0.75g/kg bodyweight. For the bestconsistency, use 50 - 100ml of water per 20g of EXTREME CARBS.
