Around-workout carbohydrate formula
There are plenty of carbohydrate powders in the sports nutrition industry, but none of them compare to demo day. With four patented ingredients, we’ve created one of the most versatile carbohydrate powders on the market. Demo day was formulated with elite athletes in mind. Demo day is for those who are looking to take their training to the next level. But in order to do so, they need a premium carbohydrate powder… they need demo day.
Demo day is more than a carbohydrate powder, it’s a comprehensive peri-workout supplement. Demo day contains 25 grams of carbohydrates per serving, along with multiple ingredients that will help direct the carbs to your muscles and boost performance, such as:
Instead of using cheap, generic carbohydrates like the majority of other carbohydrate powders, demo day uses a combination of:
Carb10™: a fast-digesting, low-glycemic carbohydrate derived from peas
Cluster dextrin®: highly-branched cyclic dextrin made from amylopectin
Palatinose™: a low-glycemic carbohydrate derived from sugar beets
Since demo day uses carb10™, cluster dextrin®, and palatinose™, it won’t cause rapid spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels or gastrointestinal issues, such as gas and bloating.
However, demo day will:
Increase energy levels
Enhance muscular pumps
Demo day is for anyone that’s after more sustained energy levels, better muscular pumps, and performance, or a rounder and fuller look. Demo day can be used pre-, intra-, or post-workout depending on the individuals’ goals and needs. If you’ve tried carbohydrate powders in the past and have been disappointed with the results, we highly recommend demo day.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop in a shaker cup with 12 oz of water and drink 30 minutes before exercise.
You can take this product multiple ways:
Before training - drink 1 serving 30 minutes before exercise
During training - sip on 1 serving during exercise
After training - drink 1 serving after exercise
Carb10™ (legume base starch derived from pisum sativum (peas))
Carb10™ is a healthy, low glycemic carbohydrate that’s derived from pisum sativum, more commonly known as peas. Carb10™ was developed by one of the leading ingredient developers in sports nutrition, compound solutions.
One of the main reasons why we used carb10™ in demo day is because it’s fast-digesting and absorbing, yet it doesn’t cause rapid spikes and crashes in insulin levels. This leaves you with a source of sustained energy that will carry you through the entire training session. Not to mention, carb10™ eliminates the digestive discomfort that’s often associated with carbohydrate powders.
Key features of carb10™ include:
Fast gastric-emptying time
No gastrointestinal distress
Minimal blood sugar/insulin response
Cluster dextrin® (highly branched cyclic dextrin)
Cluster dextrin®, also known as highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD), is another cutting-edge carbohydrate that was developed by glico nutrition. Cluster dextrin® is made from amylopectin, a water-soluble polysaccharide naturally found in plants.
Unlike other dextrins, cluster dextrin® has a low osmolality and high molecular weight. This allows for a fast gastric-emptying rate, which reduces the risk of gastrointestinal discomfort. This unique characteristic also allows cluster dextrin® to provide you with a fast, yet sustained source of energy without a sudden spike and drop-off in blood sugar levels. Moreover, cluster dextrin® is highly soluble in water so it will mix effortlessly in your shaker cup.
Supplementing with cluster dextrin® may increase:
Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid that’s involved in multiple physiological processes. In regards to exercise, taurine is most notably involved in the regulation of calcium in both skeletal and cardiac muscle cells. Calcium is essential for carrying out muscular contractions. So without sufficient levels of calcium, your performance will significantly decline.
Due to taurine’s ability to help regulate calcium levels in both skeletal and muscle cells, taurine may improve:
Amino acid levels in skeletal muscle
Hydromax® (glycerol powder) (standardized to 65% glycerol)
Hydromax ® is a stable form of glycerol that helps draw water into muscle cells without clumping up the powder. Hydromax ® is a great addition to demo day to create a more stable pump that lasts throughout your training sessions. Hydromax ® was developed by glanbia nutritionals.
Hydromax® assists with:
Palatinose® is a low-glycemic carbohydrate that’s naturally sourced from sucrose found in sugar beets. Palatinose® has a mild sweetness without any aftertaste, so it’s a great replacement for other sweeteners, such as sucrose. Furthermore, palatinose® is more stable than traditional sucrose and has a low hygroscopicity, meaning it helps prevent the powder from clumping. Palatinose® was developed by beneo.
Supplementing with palatinose® may:
Increase fat burning
Stabilize blood glucose levels
Help provide sustained energy levels
Cinnamon bark (cinnamon verum)
Cinnamon bark, also known as cinnamon verum, contains high amounts of a bioactive compound that mimics insulin called methylhydroxychalcone. Insulin is the hormone that shuttles carbohydrates out of the bloodstream and into muscle, liver, or fat cells. In this case, cinnamon bark acts as a natural nutrient partitioning agent and helps direct the carbohydrates supplied by the ingredients highlighted above to the working muscles.
Supplementing with cinnamon bark may:
Enhance insulin sensitivity
Decrease blood glucose levels
Positively affect blood lipid levels
Alpha-lipoic acid (ala) is a naturally occurring compound that’s produced by the body and found in several foods, such as red meat. Ala has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, but it’s also heavily involved in energy production. Furthermore, ala may be able to enhance the body’s response to its own insulin, thus naturally lowering blood sugar levels.
Supplementing with ALA may:
Boost energy production
Improve body’s antioxidant defense system
Lower blood glucose levels
