Dextrose Monohydrate is the most important font of energy for cells and tissues of our body. In fact, it is used especially by the brain and red cells, but it is essential for the metabolism of all the cells in the body. It is used for aerobic or anaerobic cellular respiration, for fermentation and for many other reactions.
Dextrose is used by many athletes to obtain energy ready to use during intense exercise, or after the training to restore the deposits of glycogen. It can help ensure that hard-worked muscles are not deprived of the protein and nutrients they need to recover, repair and replenish.
Dextrose has a high glycemic index (GI) rating which allows it to enter the bloodstream very quickly. This action stimulates a powerful and almost instantaneous insulin response. Insulin is a natural hormone with strong anabolic properties that helps drive nutrients into the cells of hungry muscle fibers, such as creatine monohydrate, beta-alanine, L-arginine, L-carnitine and others.
Taking Dextrose post-workout can maximize your gains and help you get the most out of this all-important post-workout window.
Dextrose Monohydrate can be used anytime of the day as an effective energy source. However, we recommend to take it during or directly after training to assist the body's anabolic state.
Add the desired dose to water or other sports drinks or supplements.

What is the difference between Maltodextrin and Dextrose?
• Dextrose is a monosaccharide (composed of one sugar) and maltodextrin is a polysaccharide (composed of multiple sugars). This makes a difference in the speed that your body can absorb the carbohydrates.
• Because of the above, Dextrose is absorbed by the body slightly faster than Maltodextrin.
• Dextrose tastes much sweeter than Maltodextrin. Both carbs are great to boost insulin and also refill glycogen stores after you finish your lifting.
Which one you choose depends on your personal taste and what you find works best for your body.
Can I mix Maltodextrin and Dextrose?
Sure! A very popular alternative is to combine both carbohydrates in a 50:50 ratio. This combination will optimise glycogen replenishment, hydration, and performance.
