Genius Nutrition Glycogex is a new carbohydrate preparation based on high-quality branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD), citrulline malate and electrolytes. The formula provides the body with the necessary ingredients during and after intense training. The supplement provides increased training performance, intensifies the feeling of muscle mass and replenishes glycogen deficiencies. Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium support the proper functioning of nerves and muscles. They are especially helpful during intensive training.
Glycogex contains HBCD that has a low osmolality and a high molecular weight, quickly providing muscles with an easy-to-use form of energy. Citrulline malate increases the muscle pump by increasing the concentration of nitric oxide in the body. Additionally, citrulline increases the release of growth hormone, thus contributing to the development of substantial muscle mass and loss of adipose tissue.
HBCD - highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD) is a variation of the popular carbohydrate source of maltodextrin. The ingredient is produced by the enzymatic treatment of amylopectin, a polysaccharide that is also an ingredient in starch. The process produces a carbohydrate with a high molecular weight, higher solubility, and a less sweet and starchy taste.
L-Citrulline Malate - participates in the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) and phosphocreatine and the oxygen metabolism of glucose, thereby increasing the uptake of oxygen, glucose, amino acids and creatine and energy production by muscle cells. It reduces the concentration of lactic acid and ammonia in the muscles, allowing the body to recover energy faster by increasing the level of creatine phosphate and re-synthesizing ATP. Citrulline malate is a much more effective form than high doses of arginine, as it is its precursor. At the same dose as arginine, it is more effective in increasing its amount in the body than arginine alone.
Sodium - Sodium reduces the acid content of the urine, helps the kidneys to get rid of uric acid, which helps to prevent gout and kidney stones.
Potassium - potassium is primarily responsible for controlling muscle contractions and maintaining proper blood pressure. Moreover, it plays an important role in the water and electrolyte balance. By including potassium supplements in your diet, you will prevent cardiac arrhythmias and skeletal muscle relaxation.
Calcium - is the basic mineral component that influences, inter alia, the maintenance of the electrolyte balance of the body necessary for its proper functioning. It is an important component of bone tissue and is essential for its proper development, as well as for the efficient functioning of nerves, muscles and heart.
Magnesium - the most important function of magnesium is its participation in energy management and energy production. Thanks to it, we can obtain energy and building blocks for our cells from consumed and properly digested meals. This element affects the transformation of both carbohydrates and fats, and at the cell level it regulates the synthesis of the basic high-energy compound, which is ATP. Magnesium helps in the proper functioning of muscles and in maintaining electrolyte balance.
One measuring cup during or after training. On non-training days, one scoop between meals or when you need glycogen supplementation.
