Ultra Carb, The Science
The post workout nutrient window is believed by many experts to be the most important one for athletes and people who train. Put simply this is because you need to feed the muscles that are exhausted and starved of nutrients following training for them to repair and regrow. More specifically the type of carbohydrates you consume with your protein have been shown to have a profound effect on your muscle recovery and growth. This is why we created Ultra Carb, since backed by years of research, this scientifically calculated formula has been shown to work with your protein of choice. It shuttles the aminos and protein to the muscles quicker and creates a far better muscle building environment within the muscles than if you were to consume protein alone.
Ultra Carb Ingredients
Looking at the formula of Ultra Blend in more detail, it contains a 50/50 split of dextrose and maltodextrin that provides a tapered release of quick absorbing carbohydrates to the muscles. This not only promotes muscle glycogen replenishment but also helps to shuttle the protein and amino acids to the muscles far more effectively and kick-start muscle growth. Ultra Carb has also been enhanced with 1000mg of glycine, an amino acid that’s been shown to increase the muscle building potential of the carbohydrates we consume, whilst at the same time promoting glucose uptake and glycogen retention.

Q. Can I use Ultra Carb with other supplements?
A. Yes definitely. Firstly, Ultra Carb is designed to be added to your protein shake of choice to make a more complete post workout shake, but also athletes using creatine have found adding this to Ultra Carb formula post workout greatly aids the uptake of creatine. This is because the quick releasing carbohydrates work with the glycine to help to shuttle the creatine to the muscles.
