Dextrose (also known as glucose) is a simple sugar (monosaccharide) that is the primary source of energy for the body.* Dextrose powder is approximately 25% less sweet than pure or refined cane sugar, and is not associated with either fructose or lactose. It has a fine texture, mixes easily, and is moderately sweet – these traits make it extremely versatile. In addition, as a monosaccharide, dextrose is easily absorbed and utilized by the body; it has a high glycemic index (GI) rating which indicates that it enters the bloodstream very quickly and is well-tolerated by most individuals with normal blood sugar responses.* Dextrose stimulates the body to drive, not only glucose, but amino acids and other nutrients into cells.* Dextrose thus makes energy readily available to working muscles and helps to maintain glycogen stores.* In addition, dextrose also helps to make important nutrients, such as creatine and branched-chain aminos, available for use by muscle tissue.* From an athletic performance perspective therefore, it can help fuel intense activity, maintain exercise endurance, and support recovery from exercise.* Dextrose powder can be consumed before, during, and after the most intense training sessions. NOW Sports Dextrose Powder is derived from non-GMO corn and manufactured under NOW’s strict quality standards. Natural color variation may occur in this product.
