Maltodextrins are water-soluble complex of carbohydrates with high glycemic index, composed of short chains of glucose or dextrose, used in many endurance sports to meet the energy demands of the body during strenuous exercise, optimize the resynthesis of muscle and liver glycogen and facilitate recovery after exercise.
The need for an athlete to integrate the diet is that the carbohydrate reserves within our body are limited and the exhaustion causes a drop in performance.
As the digestion of food is laborious during sport, athletes use maltodextrin, because it's the more easily absorbed energy supplements.
ENERGEN is a energy gel with a high percentage of complex carbohydrates (maltodextrin).
ENERGEN is available in two formulations ready to drink 125 and 30 ml.
There is also a formulation of pure maltodextrin in powder: MALTOVIS.
