Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates belong together with proteins and fats to the group of macro nutrients. They are our main source of energy, as the guidelines recommend that they represent more than 50% of the daily energy intake. Carbohydrates can generally be divided into complex and simple. Carbohydrate intake and their distribution over the course of the day are very important for athletes. Carbohydrate intake before and after sports activity serves to fill glycogen stores, while delaying fatigue during sports activity. Before sports activity, it is recommended to introduce complex carbohydrates, which allow for a gradual supply of energy. During and after sporting activities, simple carbohydrates can be introduced, which quickly bring us energy and fill the empty glycogen stores.

To this end, various energy gels and beverages containing a mixture of sugars are used during sports activity. After the activity is recommended to take low osmolar glucose polymers, such as maltodextrin. In recent years, a revolutionary product called Vitargo has emerged on the market, which is a patented form of carbohydrate and for which research suggests that fills glycogen stores as much as 77% faster than maltodextrin. In our offer you will find all three products of quality brand Quamtrax.
