High-energy complex carbohydrate drink. Scientifically-balanced 100% pure complex carbohydrates (from superior glucose polymers). 100% Natural. High performance complex carbohydrates. The number one premium energy fuel. Universal's Carbo Plus is the leading complex carbohydrate formula. For long-lasting energy, increased endurance and maximum performance, nothing gives you a better competitive edge than Carbo Plus. It is more potent, more readily absorbed and more easily digestible than any other brand. Designed for serious athletes Carbo Plus fuels your body with the purest and most premium complex carbohydrates available (consisting of granulated medium length complex carbohydrates (glucose polymers) extracted from selected grain sources and maltodextrin)-without any added sweeteners, preservatives, simple sugars or artificial flavors. 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. Carbo Plus fuels you body with glucose polymers, a direct precursor for glycogen synthesis in muscles. This is the most important source of energy to your muscles during strenuous exercise. By training with 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. The level of complex carbohydrates you consume directly affects your body's glycogen stores. A higher glycogen store allows your body to work harder and longer before reaching exhaustion. Carbo Plus is efficiently stored by the body and used to generate energy-rich ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the actual fuel used by the body to make your muscles work. Increasing your body's glucose levels with Carbo Plus increased the usable forms of available ATP, allowing increased duration of muscular strength and stamina. Carbo Plus is quick to use and easily mixes with any beverage. With almost zero fat and sodium. Carbo Plus fuels your body with the premium carbohydrates needed for increased energy and endurance. Carbo Plus is the ultimate carbohydrate source.

Pyruvate for Sports & Fitness

Pyruvate

Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that pyruvate helps them lose body fat and also helps boost metabolism and increase endurance.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Pyruvate appears to promote weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate. There is good research based on human studies showing that pyruvate helps to promote weight loss in overweight people on low-fat diets.

Although pyruvate promotes weight loss, which is good for heart health, it is important to monitor cholesterol levels as it may reduce HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?

Three controlled studies of untrained individuals using a combination of 6 to 10 grams per day of pyruvate and an exercise program reported greater effects on weight loss and body fat compared with those taking a placebo with the exercise program.1, 2, 3 However, controlled studies of the effects of pyruvate supplementation on exercise performance have tested only trained athletes, and these athletes did not experience improvements from pyruvate supplementation. Seven grams per day did not improve aerobic exercise performance in cyclists,4 and an average of 15 grams per day did not improve anaerobic performance or body composition in football players.5

*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
