Shuttle was designed to be a turn-key glucose disposal agent (GDA). GDA’s assist with nutrient partitioning into muscle cells, replenishing muscle glycogen, increasing insulin sensitivity and assisting with normal and healthy glucose and insulin metabolism. For strength training athletes in particular, all of these facets greatly assist with muscle volume, fullness, hardness, vascularity, recovery, strength and of course, performance. Notwithstanding that maintaining healthy glucose levels is a cornerstone of overall health and wellness and reducing overall inflammation. Other GDA products on the market have included constituents that simply slow gastric clearance and hinder the absorption of carbohydrates, which is completely counterintuitive around training times and for rapid glycogen replenishment- when GDA’s are most used by informed strength training athletes for benefit. We have deliberately omitted those products which slow gastric emptying, focusing rather on that which matters.
MALTO DEXTRINMaltodextrin is a modified carbohydrate that has attributes of both simple, and complex carbohydrates. It is rapidly digested and assimilated much like glucose, but due to the fact that it has a much lower osmolarity, it is far less inclined to cause gastrointestinal discomfort and/or bloating, making it the ideal beverage to consume during, or for bracketing one’s workouts. This will help sustain energy levels during workouts, replenish muscle glycogen and most importantly to assist the spike of insulin strategically and more effectively to assist nutrient partitioning into muscle cells.
EAAs: ABSOLUTE AMINO
Nutricon’s Absolute Amino have been formulated to help reduce the time it takes your muscles to recover, whilst offering sustained energy and muscle building contributing properties. There are 20 Amino Acids of which 9 are considered essential and used by the body to rebuild muscle. These 9 Amino Acids are required by the body to help construct new tissue and aid muscle repair and are deemed ‘essential’ since ultimately, they cannot be synthesised or created by the body and therefore the only way we can get them is through foods and supplementation.
