Maltodextrin is a mixture of several sugar obtained generally from corn starch, a naturally occurring molecule which comprises carbohydrate interesting properties for athletes.
Indeed, before an effort of long duration and relatively intense, it is recommended to athletes, maximize energy reserves favoring carbohydrate intake. The first of the nutrition of the athletes, he was advisor to favor foods rich in carbohydrates, such as pasta, and this for 3 to 5 days before exercise.
When these carbohydrates digested by the body and converted into glycogen, these nutrients will be stored in the muscles. Muscle glycogen is the energy used by your muscles to meet the effort you their request.
Maltodextrin as a drink was a small revolution when she appeared. No need to feed on high carbohydrate ingredients for days, before your competition.
The powder maltodextrin, is interesting because it is convenient. Simply mix 150g of maltodextrin MX3 with 1.5L of water and drink regularly in small sips throughout the day and for 3 days before the event.
Maltodextrin MX3 is a highly digestible product, it is also available as organic, or antioxidant version with intake of vitamins C and E to prevent oxidation of cells and fight against muscular disruption.

Why promote an important carbohydrate intake before a long effort?

Carbohydrates are preferably used as energy substrates during intense and prolonged effort. However, the reserves of carbohydrates in body are limited (300 to 500 g of muscle glycogen, and 50 to 150 g of liver glycogen), they are gradually depleted as a result of the duration of the exercise. The depletion of muscle glycogen stores is a determining factor in the depletion of the athlete. carbohydrate intakes are essential before, during and after exercise to maintain blood sugar and replace the muscle and liver glycogen. The type of carbohydrate to ingest shall follow the glycemic index of the carbohydrate and the time between intake and exercise. More ingestion is close to the event, the greater the proportion of simple carbohydrates with high glycemic index and thus quickly absorbed, must be significant (MixDépart). Instead, more ingestion is far more complex carbohydrates from medium or low glycemic index is recommended (Maltodextrin MX3). Indeed, these carbohydrates are digested more slowly and will be preferred to form the glycogen stores and be available gradually during the effort.
