Explaining Cyclic Dextrin – Benefits & Uses

super carb cyclic dextrinIf you’re an athlete, you know the importance of carbohydrates. Without them, performance suffers. For this reason, NutraBio uses the most advanced carbohydrate on the market, called Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (found in our Super Carb & PRE Extreme).

Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD or Cluster Dextrin) represents a true breakthrough in carbohydrate technology. HBCD is clinically validated to increase performance to tremendous levels while limiting any semblance of gastrointestinal distress. It achieves this by having a high molecular weight and ultra-low osmolality. Osmolality is an indicator of how fast a liquid will move through the stomach, which is why no carbohydrate on the market can rival the effectiveness of NutraBio Cluster Dextrin®.

This clinically studied innovation has the ability to pass through your stomach rapidly while supplying your muscles with steady state glycogen to enhance performance. This rapid stomach clearance is due to something called “low osmolarity,” which allows for rapid transport through the stomach. The key benefit of this is providing raw energy prior to training to ensure that you don’t run out of energy while training.

  • Cluster Dextrin® has been shown to increase performance in swimming sprint performance athletes.
  • It has been demonstrated to have a greater mix-ability and solubility than other pricey commercial sports nutrition carbohydrates.
  • Unlike other formulations using Cluster Dextrin® that have dextrose or maltodextrin hidden in the “other ingredients,” NutraBio uses only pure Cluster Dextrin®.

Even better, in clinical research, highly branched cyclic dextrin has been shown to lower markers for stress hormones after exhaustive exercise when compared to other carbohydrates. When you combine this with the fact that it’s sustained release and doesn’t increase inflammatory markers like some other carbohydrates on the market, it then becomes a truly remarkable performance aid. Remember, for real athletes working out day in and day out HIGH STRESS HORMONES = BAD, HIGH INFLAMMATION = BAD. Can any carbohydrate source demonstrate clinical data like this? Not until now.
