Make These Carbs Your New Best Friend

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word CARBS? Do you instantly think about donuts, pasta, bloating and weight gain? Well, I am here to put an end to all of your negative thoughts about crabs.

Carbohydrate is the most efficient source of energy for athletes. Complex carbs provide the energy that fuels muscle contractions. Once eaten, carbohydrates break down into smaller sugars (glucose, fructose, and galactose) that get absorbed and used as energy. Any glucose not needed right away gets stored in the muscles and the liver in the form of glycogen.

Progenex has made it extremely easy for us to become best friends with what we call “clean carbs.” PROGENEX Build, a carbohydrate supplement, is formulated to give your body the sustained energy and nutrients it needs to recover and return to your workout stronger.

BUILD is made up of two natural carbohydrate sources – honey and sweet potato powder. The honey is mostly a simple sugar that will be delivered quickly into the muscle by the peptides, while the sweet potato powder contains a waxy, long chain of carbohydrate polymers which provide sustained energy. This allows the glucose to enter the bloodstream and deliver an optimal glycemic index for you throughout your workout.

PROGENEX Build contains a combination of simple and waxy carbs, therefore making it a more rapid digesting carbohydrate supplement. Consuming a liquid form of nutrition and carbohydrate supplement with protein has shown to accelerate recovery.

What all this means is that you can optimize your energy levels during high-intensity workouts so that you can go harder and longer.

Good Carbs:

  • Vegetables: All of them. It is best to eat a variety of vegetables every day.

  • Whole fruits: Apples, blueberries, strawberries, etc.

  • Legumes: Lentils, kidney beans, peas, etc.

  • Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, etc.

  • Seeds: Chia seeds, pumpkin seeds.

  • Whole grains: Choose grains that are truly whole, as in pure oats, quinoa, brown rice, etc.

  • Tubers: Potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.

  • Progenex: BUILD Ignition Blend
