Description

Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred source of energy and are stored in the body as glycogen – both in the liver and more importantly, in the muscles. Whether you need a slow digesting carbohydrate such as ultra fine Scottish oats, or a fast absorbing carbohydrate such as dextrose for post-workout recovery, make sure you’ve got enough fuel to perform to your optimum, day in, day out. Check out our huge range of carbohydrate supplements - all at Europe’s lowest prices!

Think of muscle like a fuel tank in your car – no fuel, no performance. While the body can get energy from other sources, carbohydrates are the preferred source. Low carbohydrate levels (and low glycogen) have been continually shown in research to lead to poor performance in weightlifting, football, running and pretty much every sport!

There are different types of carbohydrate. Simply, there are complex carbohydrates which release energy in a slow, steady fashion. Alternatively, simple sugars are broken down rapidly and provide a spike of energy.

Typically complex carbohydrates, such as Scottish oats, are advised throughout the day to give a steady supply of energy without dramatically raising blood sugar levels. Simple sugars, such as dextrose, are primarily used around training to give a quick supply of energy and to refuel muscles after training.
