100% Pure Highly Branched Cyclic
Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®)
Cluster Dextrin (Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin-HBCD) is a specialized type of cyclic dextrin which is formed when enzymes are used to break down amylopectin. The enzymes convert the starches into clusters that are then converted into longer chains by using additional branching enzymes (BE,1,4-α-D-glucan: 1,4-α-D-glucan 6-α-D-(1,4-α-D-glucano)-transferase,EC 18.104.22.168).

Cluster Dextrin® is highly soluble and quickly digested carbohydrates play an important role in many sports. Useful for both weight training and endurance type activities. Provides a continuous and sustained release of energy, which promotes much greater use of body fat for fuel during exercise. This improves performance and endurance far beyond what can be achieved using plain glucose or high GI carbs such as sugars, dextrins and maltodextrin.
Used before training this can elevate blood glucose providing immediate energy, during and post-exercise it can almost instantaneously replenish depleted energy stores and transport other nutrients into the muscles aiding both recovery and muscle growth.
Cluster Dextrin® has a high molecular weight and low osmolarity, which helps to increase gastric emptying. This essentially means that the HCBD will remain for a much lesser time in your stomach as compared to regular carbohydrates and is absorbed by your intestines and sent to the muscles more quickly. Cluster Dextrin® has minimal to no effect on blood sugar and insulin levels.
