Biogen Carbogen LOW GI is an advanced carbo-loading and intra-exercise formula. It contains the trademarked ingredient Palatinose ™ (Isomaltulose) which is a source of both glucose and fructose. Palatinose is a LOW GI carbohydrate source. It releases energy gradually while promoting the storage of glycogen in muscle during carbo-loading and the utilization of fat stores during training/events. Muscle glycogen is a vital energy source for the body. Biogen Carbogen LOW GI is enhanced by the inclusion of antioxidants to fight harmful free radicals which are formed during intense exercise causing fatigue and muscle tissue breakdown. The risk of overtraining syndrome can also be reduced by providing sufficient energy and replacing adequate electrolytes, phosphates and amino acids all of which are present in this formulation.
