Universal Nutrition's Carbo Plus is the leading complex carbohydrate formula for long-lasting energy and maximum performance. It is more readily absorbed and more easily digested than any other brand. Designed for serious athletes, Carbo Plus fuels your body with the freshest carbs available: granulated medium length complex carbs (glucose polymers) extracted from selected grain sources and maltodextrin. Carbohydrates are your body's essential energy source, sparing proteins from being used and preventing muscle tissue breakdown. Complex carbohydrates provide your body with a more consistent blood sugar level than simple sugars, which cause the glucose level in your bloodstream to rise and fall rapidly. Research has shown that at least 50% of your diet should be in the form of complex carbohydrates, especially if you are training at intense levels. By training with Universal Nutrition's Carbo Plus you are allowing maximum replenishment of glycogen in your muscle and liver - leading to enhanced performance, faster muscle recovery and higher endurance levels. No added preservatives, simple sugars, or artificial flavors.
