As a bodybuilder, you try to avoid sugars. Excessive sugar intake has been linked to insulin resistance, carb cravings, and bodyfat accumulation, among other things. So sucrose, or plain table sugar, is out. Fructose, while a long-lasting source of energy, has been shown in clinical studies to create gastrointestinal (GI) distress. Take too much fructose and it won't sit well in your stomach. For optimal results, you need Carbo Plus. Carbo Plus doesn't contain any inferior sucrose or fructose. Instead, you get glucose polymers and maltodextrin extracted from premium grain sources. Carbo Plus is unflavored and unsweetened, and each serving loads you up with 55g of pure energy.
