Gen-Tec Pure Carbs
Gen-Tec Pure Carbs, as the name suggests is a pure carbohydrate source. Carbohydrates have long been seen as the enemy, but many people have now realised the significant role they play in energy and performance for the physically active.
Gen-Tec is a leading Australian brand, founded by bodybuilding superstore Nick Jones. Knowing the importance for using quality ingredients, Gen-Tec have sourced and formulated supplements that are sure not to disappoint.
Pure Carbs is a blend of 3 different carbohydrate sources, being:
- Dextrose Monohydrate
These carbohydrate sources are fast acting and cause insulin spiking. Insulin is the most anabolic hormone in the body and is secreted from the Pancreas when blood sugars rise from carbohydrate intake. Insulin helps to drive nutrients into the cells such as protein, creatine & glutamine.
Carbohydrates get converted into glycogen in the body which is the bodies preferred source of energy for physical activity. When undertaking training, our glycogen stores can become depleted which leads to sub-par performance. Pure Carbs will ensure your glycogen levels remain optimal to ensure you are performing at your best.
Pure Carbs also contains an ingredient known as Chromium Picolinate. Chromium Picolinate helps to increase insulin sensitivity to ensure you are utilising blood sugar effectively and delivering as many nutrients as possible to the working muscle.
