Why Carbs are Important
During exercise and intense training, stored carbs can be substantially depleted. Therefore, in order for your body to recover properly and regain its energy, you need a carbohydrate supplement post-workout. A carbohydrate supplement helps replace the muscle glycogen lost from your workout. Glycogen is the primary source of fuel your muscles use for energy production, therefore, is critical for performance. 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.
The Details are in the Delivery
Sustainable energy is a key component to exercise and how you receive that source of energy into your system can make all the difference. With BUILD, we use EngineX™, a cutting-edge delivery system that binds Fenugreek actives with dairy peptones to ensure quick clearance of blood sugar from our carbohydrate source into your muscles.
We've also included another revolutionary peptide, Shuttle™, which optimizes the use of blood glucose for energy and muscle glycogen. These peptides help glucose clear the bloodstream quickly, thus creating a faster, longer lasting energy curve to support your workout.

Not all carbs are created equal! BUILD is made 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.

I have recently started purchasing Build and Recovery for my post workout shakes and I absolutely love it. Easy to navigate website, super prompt and helpful customer support and the packages come quickly. Tastes great and I feel great! Definitely loving all of my Progenex products!
So far I love it. Mix it with a frozen banana and its like heaven
I typically add a "real food" carb to my post-workout protein. I got this, after it was recommended to me, to add to my shake when I'm on the go in place of the whole foods. I love the results I have had. My only complaint is the slightly odd taste it gives to the protein. It's not awful, just a noticeable shift in flavor. Will definitely repurchase for its convenience!
