High Performance, Sustained Energy Carbohydrate/Electrolyte Mix!*

High Performance Carbohydrate Drink

CARBION+ HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING FUEL

  • CARBION+ delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training.
  • Infused with all 4 key electrolytes: Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and Sodium.
  • Recover from intense training and replenish glycogen stores.
  • CARBION+ helps to limit the secretion of cortisol levels; the hormone that breaks down muscle.

WHY DO I NEED CARBION+?

Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION+ is vastly superior.

CARBION+ is a performance blend of 6 High-Molecular-Weight, Long-Chain Carbohydrates fortified with Electrolytes for Hydration and plant extracts for superior absorption. Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take. Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance – shifting to fat or protein for workout energy is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.

SUPPLYING HIGH-QUALITY CARBOHYDRATES DURING TRAINING IMPROVES PERFORMANCE & RECOVERY

Supplementing with carbs is one of the best ways to prevent cortisol levels from rising and subsequently, catabolic muscle tissue breakdown from taking place. This is a major factor as to why taking CARBION+ results in a more rapid recovery from intense training. If you’re training hard, supplying high-quality carbohydrates during training improves performance & recovery with every workout.

CARBION+ is 100% Sugar-Free and delivers a reliable, sustained energy source to power you through the toughest training.

NOT ALL CARBS ARE CREATED EQUAL

What you see in our formula are truly engineered carbs with research that shows how these complex and highly branched carbs behave in the body. We have taken 6 carbohydrates, all with much, much higher complexity than a sugar and then provided a range of complexity, not unlike what you would find in food like rolled, cooked oats.

The degree of complexity of carbohydrates indicates the length of the chain of glucose molecules; at the very low end you have monosaccharides, only a single glucose molecule such as dextrose or fructose. The larger the chain gets, the longer it takes enzymes to break down the links that bind them together. This is where the glycemic index (GI) comes from; the highest numbers come from the simplest, shortest chains because they are absorbed extremely quickly and the most complex and longest chains, are the lowest numbers.

This is due to the time required for the responsible enzyme to break down the long chain polysaccharides into single glucose, galactose or fructose molecules that can be absorbed. It is a common myth that these larger chain polysaccharides can be directly absorbed, they cannot. The human digestive tract only absorbs simple sugar molecules. Since these very large chains require such a large amount of digestion, they absorb over a longer period of time.

HOW DOES CARBION+ WORK?

What CARBION+ has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy. Specifically, CARBION+ has 5 types of varying complexities of carbohydrates. To best understand how CARBION+ works, it’s helpful to compare it to a typical sports performance drink often made up of dextrose, sucrose or fructose.

Drinks with a high osmotic pressure, such as drinks made up of simple sugars, are held in the stomach much longer before they are sent to the upper small intestine to be absorbed, and therefore readily available for the body to convert to energy, or fuel. While in the stomach, the drink with the simple sugars provides no fuel for training because it has not reached the place where absorption can take place. It also leads to uncomfortable stomach bloating and because the sugars once they move to the small intestine are passed through the gut very quickly, it can lead to a rapid sugar dump and subsequent crash.

CARBOHYDRATES ONLY ABSORB IN THE SMALL INTESTINES. NO CARBS ARE ABSORBED IN THE STOMACH.

  • Simple sugars stay in stomach longer
  • Once in the small intestines absorption happens very rapidly
  • Rapid absorption increases blood sugar and increases insulin
  • Complex carbs (high-molecular weight) are released from the stomach quickly
  • Due to their long chain structure, enzymes must break them down
  • Absorption takes place over a longer duration
  • More sustained, longer release into the blood stream and less insulin at once

Drinks with a low osmotic pressure, such as CARBION+, are emptied from the stomach to the small intestine much quicker. However, due to the fact that CARBION+ is made up of varying complexities of slow to fast absorbing carbohydrates, the rate at which they are absorbed by the small intestine is much slower.

ELECTROLYTES

In addition to the physiological advantages that the lower osmotic pressure provides, CARBION+ has two other advantages that provide an even greater benefit. One is the electrolytes within the formula. Fortified with 4 key electrolytes including: Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Sodium. This provides an even lower osmolality within the formula and increases the level of hydration of the athlete consuming it.

ABSORPTION

The second advantage is the blend of three plant extracts; Prickly Pear Extract, Bitter Melon Extract and D-Pinitol that help to reduce the threshold at which insulin receptors trigger to signal cells to absorb nutrients. Simply stated, less insulin is required to initiate the uptake of blood glucose into cells, meaning more actual fuel in the muscle and less in the blood.

CARBION+ IS A BETTER WAY TO POWER YOUR WORKOUTS

What CARBION+ has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy.

CARBION+ DELIVERS A RELIABLE, SUSTAINED ENERGY SOURCE TO POWER YOU THROUGH THE TOUGHEST TRAINING

Starting at the high end, AWM2300™ Waxy Maize is highly-branched and extremely complex and comes in at 200,000 g/mol, next in order of complexity is the Rice and Potato starch, while lower in inclusion rates, they are also very high on the molecular weight scale, and range between 80,000 and 120,000 g/mol, CYCLO-D: Clustered Cyclic Dextrin is derived from Waxy Maize (Amylopectin) and has a molecular weight of 60,000 g/mol and finally, DE-5™: Dextrin is the least complex coming in at 45,000 g/mol; all far larger and more complex than the monosaccharides Glucose, Dextrose or Fructose which is 180 g/mol.

Relative Molecular Weights

DEXTROSE - 180
DE-5 DEXTRIN - 45,000
CYCLO-D - 60,000
RICE STARCH - 100,000
POTATO STARCH - 100,000
WAXY MAIZE - 200,000

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR TRAINING?

What this means for you is a sustained supply of energy for increased workout intensity and training duration without the bloat or sugar crash. More to the point, like consuming oats, CARBION+ has the effect of delivering caloric energy in a manner your body can cope with more easily, eliminating dramatic insulin spikes and sustaining energy delivery. By supplementing with CARBION+ during your workout you can expect a steady supply of training fuel supplied to working muscles, sparing muscle glycogen depleting, staving off muscle catabolism and jump starting your recovery.

DO NOT FOOL YOURSELF – REAL RESULTS DO NOT COME FROM LOW CARB TRAINING. REAL RESULTS COME FROM INTENSITY

DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD CARBS!

One of the common reasons people avoid carbs like a mutated strain of the bubonic plague is that they’ve bought into the hype that carbs make you fat. Hopefully, you’re past that, but it’s worth getting into. You know who doesn’t avoid carbs? Every top level Bodybuilder, Top coaches and trainers, Elite MMA athletes, Endurance athletes and the list goes on.
The key distinction here of those who should and should not consume carbs is one of who does and who does not have control of their diet. If you are consistently consuming simple sugars, eating over-sized meals and not expending sufficient energy with some form of training, carbs are not for you!
On the other hand, if you do have a degree of control over your diet and you are training with sufficient intensity; then carbs are not only a good idea, they are a MUST!

CARBS ARE NOT ONLY A GOOD IDEA, THEY ARE A MUST!

One of the effects that frequent training has on the body is an increased number of insulin receptors on muscle tissue and an increase in their sensitivity. This is your body’s way of Nutrient Partitioning; that is, shuttling nutrients to active muscles and away from fat stores.

Hard working muscles morph their physiology to consume more energy in the form of glucose (blood sugar). Limiting calories stunts this process. On the flip side, increasing the consumption of well-timed carbohydrates, protein and essential fatty acids will not only increase the proliferation of insulin receptors, but also increase your metabolism.

Put simply, training hard increases your ability to uptake larger amounts of nutrients like glucose out of the blood plasma. In essence, like a sponge, muscles that are routinely trained hard increase the amount of energy the can and will consume. Contrast this with a couch potato whose receptors decrease in number and sensitivity. Any additional nutrients beyond their already full glycogen stores will shunt to fat storage.

The moral of this story is, if you train hard and you eat right, make absolutely sure that you are providing your body with the highest quality carbs. Starving muscle tissue that is primed by training to take up glucose in abundance will hurt your training and lower your basal metabolic rate.

DOES CARBION+ WORK?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, science, polysaccharide blah, blah, blah, BUT DOES IT WORK in the gym?! We’ve all heard the stories about the theory of why this or that should work, but does the rubber meet the road? The answer is yes.

We have found what we believe to be the absolute best combination of carbohydrates, electrolytes and insulogenics to provide a highly efficient and energy supply. The mechanism and action of this supply provides truly superior training in many respects.

  • Elevated performance intensity and duration result in greater muscle stimulation.
  • Increases in blood plasma volume and muscle glycogen provide a profound pump within every training session helping to stretch muscle fiber and fascia.
  • The carbohydrate effect of blunting the rise in cortisol levels common to intense training results in a dramatic reduction in muscle tissue breakdown.

After a year in production and testing, test subjects reported dramatically superior workouts, improved recovery and ability to get back into the gym faster than normal. Reports have been coming in with exceptional muscle fullness, great vascularity and stunning pumps.

The ability to remain in the gym training hard for far longer has been one of the most common reports. This really underscores the value of having such a well delivered high-quality source of carbohydrates with efficient delivery; you are effectively fuelled for a greater duration.

This brings a level of intensity to training that simply did not exist before. Being able to maintain a level of intensity at a far greater duration brings results. Train with it once, you will feel the difference the first time. You will not want to train without it again.

CARBION+ is available in Unflavored along with 3 delicious flavors: Fruit Punch, Key Lime Cherry and Pineapple Mango. Even better, CARBION+ mixes perfectly with AMINOCORE, making it the perfect intra-workout formula for mass gains and true performance enhancement!

 

How complex is your Carb?

The problem with many of the so-called carb drinks on the market today is that they disclose very little about what they are. They often claim things like “enzyme milling”, or “degree of hydrolyzation (DH)”.  Officially, a carb product is only required to be one step away from a sugar to be declared a starch, and thus “sugar-free”.

So if this “enzyme reduction” process takes the product to a level just barely out of the range of officially being declared a starch, then you might as well take Dextrose and save yourself some money. If it mixes like sugar, and tastes like sugar and you perceive absolutely no grittiness at all, you’re likely dealing with a very sugar-like, low molecular weight starch.

The Oats | CARBION+ Connection

What about a really complex carbohydrate, something like intact (whole) oats? Cooked oats are a long-time favorite addition to just about any healthy diet. As great as they are, due to their very long time to digest, in order to make them an effective workout supplement you need to be a bit of a master of timing.

The oats most people know and consume are quite far from their original state by the time they reach your bowl. They are rolled (crushed from their previous form of a whole grain), most often thrashed to further breakdown the fibrous nature of the oat to expedite cooking, hence the 3-minute “quick oats”.

Every step in the process reduces the level of carbohydrate complexity within Oats.

Then of course, we add water and cook it. All very normal, but what we need to understand is that all these steps of processing reduce the complexity of the carbohydrate.

OATS ARE A VALUABLE ENERGY SOURCE PARTLY BECAUSE THEY VARY IN CARB COMPLEXITY

What you end up with is a great carbohydrate that has a mix of some fiber, some larger (complex) carbohydrates and then varying degrees of carb complexity. Cooked oats are an excellent source of energy that provides a sustained source of energy that does not heavily strain the body by forcing large amounts of insulin to deal with overwhelming floods of blood sugar.

Hydration from the common Oat?

One of the lesser known aspects of oats that it too has a nice complement of electrolytes including fairly high levels of Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium some Sodium (only 3%, this is one of the reasons most oats calls for a dash of salt). CARBION+ has added Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium as well.

The Cinnamon Effect

One of the most common condiments for a nice bowl of oats is of course, Cinnamon. Cinnamon tastes great, and that’s about as far as most people take that logic. One of the effects of Cinnamon is that it is also an insulogenic. So, your not-so-common Cinnamon condiment is actually helping you to more efficiently uptake and absorb your oatmeal.

CARBION+ mimics this effect with the Advanced Carb Utilization Complex. Insulin receptors are the gateway to the cell. Nutrients that you digest and get into your blood stream can only get into target cells once the insulin receptor is activated. Activation has to reach a threshold (a level at which it “turns on”); this level is reduced by certain substances. In essence, these Insulogenics increase their sensitivity.

Oats do however have drawbacks; they are relatively difficult to prepare, are difficult to consume at the ideal time for optimal workout performance, people who have gluten sensitivities cannot take them and they are certainly not convenient to consume in the middle or even right after training. However, the core function of a rolled, cooked oat, long revered as one of the staples of exceptional nutrition, is something that we took inspiration from for CARBION+.

Suggested Use

As the label indicates you can take CARBION+ Pre, During and Post Training. Clearly each timing has its benefits.

DURNING TRAINING (Recommended)

CARBION+ is most commonly taken during intense training. Mix prior to your workout or event and start consuming 2 servings as you start training and consume throughout your workout. You will initially begin your training by tapping into your existing glycogen stores and as CARBION+ absorbs and begins working your body will naturally shift to its most preferred and efficient fuel; glucose. This will effectively power your training, spare glycogen, blunt catabolism and power your recovery.

PRE-TRAINING (Optional)

If you are taking it Pre-Training the main goal is to LOAD UP and fill your muscles full of glycogen for maximal performance. This should really only be done when you have depleted your glycogen. So, in the case where you are Cycling your carbs by taking them only around training time and eliminating them outside of training, you would eat few, or no carbs and focus on fats and proteins. Approximately 45 to 60 minutes before training, take 2 servings. You would also take an additional 2 servings following training.

POST-TRAINING (Optional)

Taking CARBION+ immediately following your event or training is an excellent way to fuel recovery and replenish glycogen stores. This can be combined with CARBION+ taken during training if you have an exceptionally long training session or event. Your level of fatigue should be your guide.
