RAPID ENERGY SUPPORT
The next level in intra-workout nutrition and carb-sourcing for mid training energy, maltodextrin stands as one of the top forms of intra-workout carbs due to its energy-releasing speed and availability.
Because maltodextrin is a fast-digesting carbohydrate, it’s often included in shakes by many pro bodybuilders as means of preventing muscle catabolism during workout while simultaneously keeping their strenuous sessions going.
Since maltodextrin doesn’t use as much water to digest as some carbohydrates, it’s a good way to get quick calories without becoming dehydrated. Research has even shown that maltodextrin can help an athlete maintain their anaerobic power for the duration of their training sessions almost immediately after consumption mid-workout.
