Advanced Creatine and Glycogen Loading Formula for the Serious Athlete. Dietary supplement. Super-hydrates muscles for instant gains in solid mass. Extreme post-workout full-body recovery formula. Ultra-high molecular weight waxy maize starch for lightening-fast absorption. Superior creatine and glycogen loading results through long chain waxy maize starch: A unique sugar free ultra high molecular weight carbohydrate. Creatine has and continues to be the most widely used supplement taken by athletes. Its ability to enhance performance, strength, mass, and recovery while doing so in a relatively short period of time allows it to stand above other supplements. One of the major issues surrounding creatine has been its effective transport to the muscles. Most creatine formulas depend mainly on dextrose or maltodextrin (two very high glycemic sugars) to raise insulin: the primary element responsible for transporting creatine to the muscles. This approach however is far from ideal since dextrose and maltodextrin have a high osmolality rate, which means they pass through the stomach very slowly and bind water, thus causing stomach discomfort. Another problem with dextrose and maltodextrin is that they don't promote the delivery of creatine into the bloodstream. Insulin blood levels subsequently peak at a time when most of the creatine is still sitting in the gut. Once creatine levels finally peak in the bloodstream insulin levels have largely returned to normal. This leaves a substantial portion of creatine without a carrier and it goes to waste. In scientific studies, dextrose is therefore given sometime after creatine, because scientists are well aware that dextrose and creatine do not peak in the bloodstream at the same time. In order to solve this inequality, Nutrex Research Inc. has developed Volu-Gro, which uses 60 grams of very unique and ultra high-molecular weight carbohydrate called Long Chain Waxy Maize Starch per serving to accelerate creatine transport. Waxy Maize Starch is equally as potent in stimulating insulin as dextrose and maltodextrin, yet unlike these two sugars, Waxy Maize Starch is completely sugar free. Waxy Maize Starch is revolutionary since scientific studies have shown that it passes through the somach 80% faster than dextrose or maltodextrin and therefore does not cause any discomfort. In doing so Waxy Maize Starch acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it into the bloodstream. This ensures that creatine and insulin are present in the bloodstram at the same time. A much greater amount of creatine can now be transported intho the muscles due to synchronized levels of creatine and insulin in the blood. Additionally, scientific studies have demonstrated that if taken immediately after training, the Waxy Maize Starch element in Volu-Gro restores muscular glycogen (muscle energy) 70 % faster than dextrose or maltodextrin. This makes Volu-Gro the ideal post workout creatine formula since it not only delivers more creatine to the muscles, but also replenishes glycogen stores much quicker causing the muscle cells to become super-hydrated while speeding up recovery more efficiently than any other glucose polymer or monomer (dextrose, maltodextrin, sucrose, fructose, etc.) The overall result is much greater muscle cell volumization, protein synthesis, and nutrient transport; all major factors contributing to enhanced muscle growth. The fusion of creatine with all Long Chain Waxy Maize Starch as seen in Volu-Gro has set a new standard in creatine supplementation. 1. Volek, JS Duncan, ND, et al. Med.
