Dextrose - high quality?

better than this one … better than this one ?http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/pure-whey-protein-any-flavour-5kg-bag-32-02-with-code-pamy16-bulk-powders-2497861?p=28615582



Hard to compare, this offer now works out as 85.78 for 10kg of Banana including the 25% discount, cannot see any working discount code HOWEVER this is a whey only product and not an All-in-one. Better comparing to myprotein impact whey Banana. Which at this moment is £67.17 for 10kg delivered with the same offer applied and TCB(68.64 without).

Dextrose - high quality?


Dextrose and ground oats provide staged absorption.

You do want a fast absorbing carb such as dextrose in a shake you have post workout.

I personally used to add Dextrose to any creatine I was taking however prefer the convenience of an All-in-one.

If I have a pure whey shake post gym I'll add Dextrose or Waxy Maize Starch.

Nice - ordered thanks OP

Almost 4 teaspoons of sugar per serving is not ideal.

Thanks for your comment, sugars are important for immediately post workout as these are the fastest absorbing type of carb and will help to replenish glycogen stores as rapidly as possible. As previously noted, sugars(such as dextrose) will optimise absorption of protein...which again is what you want(assuming not diabetic ), thanks for your comment though.

simple sugars are not good for you as they're just empty calories with no nutritional benefit and immediately increase your blood sugar giving you that quick 'high' followed by a crash.

I'd question the reason for the high sugar content in this as compared to Maximuscle Cyclone that contains less than half a teaspoon of sugar per the same 70g serving.

Had this before and had to throw it away as it was making me sick. No other protein or protein mix I had before or after gave me same side effects. I don't know if it was one of the substances in the mix or just the texture of it though.

I'm sorry but that's just not true, please find the below from bodybuilding.com

"After the workout is the other time to take in simple carbs: this is critical because it starts the wholerecovery/muscle growth process. Following a hard workout, your body is severely depleted of glycogen and glucose.

During the workout hard working muscles use glucose (usable energy) and glycogen (stored energy) for energy. As such, there is a point at which blood glucose levels (available energy) and glycogen levels (stored energy) get so low that intense exercise can't continue. There just isn't enough available energy for your muscles to use.

So what happens is that the hormone cortisol is secreted, this is your body's "stress" hormone and it has very catabolic effects. What cortisol does is eat up muscle tissue for protein and convert it into glucose. A process called gluconeogenesis ensues, producing glucose from these amino acids in the liver. The net result is a loss of muscle tissue.

The post-workout shake prevents this. It also allows insulin to be released, this is, as most of you know, one of several anabolic hormones in the body (if you are a natural trainer especially, you want to maximize the release of all your body's anabolic hormones through all available methods).

The Glycemic Index is a measure of how quickly a food raises blood sugar and hence insulin levels. Normally, it is best to eat lower glycemic foods so as not to initiate an insulin spike (55 and under rates as low). But post-workout, the exact opposite is true.

It is critical to get the carbs (and protein) to the muscle cells as fast as possible. As well, the elevated insulin levels will help to drive nutrients into the muscle cells. And again, high-glycemic carbs are best for this purpose.

Dextrose - also known as glucose. You can buy this as a powder from various different sources. It has a rating of 96 for a 50 gram portion. This is one of the more common sugars used in post workout shakes. Dextrose is a good choice, however, some users find that they have a spill over effect that results in fat gain, so that makes more of an individual choice as you would have to test it and assess the results."

I hope this info helps you with your progress in the gym.

Not so good, been using it for years and never had any ill effects however everyone's bodies are different! Thanks for your comment.

so what your saying is for the same size 70g serving MyProtein Hurricane XS having 4 teaspoons of added sugar is better than Maximuscle Cyclone because they only add a half teaspoon of sugar per serving.

I'm not sure that you're grasping the concept of what I'm saying, you WANT Dextrose post workout yes, you should do some reading up on it though. You CERTAINLY want more than 2 grams, in fact...I'd be tempted to add further dextrose in to the MyProtein shake if anything. Sugar is not the root of all evil as you seem to be hinting. I've given you a concise and clear breakdown from a reputable source as to why you want sugars ASAP post workout.

Maximuscle Cyclone is £49.99 for 1260g ie £39.67 per KG...this is £5.55 per KG.

So in short yes, I believe Hurricane XS is a superior post-workout shake to Maximuscle Cyclone regardless of cost...although seeing as this offer pegs it as costing near 87% LESS then the superiority is compounded. Maximuscle market themselves as a "premium brand" and are endorsed by paid celebs and athletes so people in their first foray in to supplementing may see them as something familiar to them and fork out the outlandish cost...they may not have a great perception of value in supplements, but I cannot for the life of me understand anyone who "knows their stuff " paying the crazy prices for these products when superior products are available at a fraction of the price.

Hope this is helping with your understanding of post workout nutrition.

i use huel for meal replacement . 300 pc protein . 4 pc sugar . has everything else you need but i only use one meal per day. huel.com

the argument for/against sugar post workout surely depends on your goals? Neither point of view is correct or incorrect - it depends entirely on what you are trying to achieve

Unless diabetic, I find it hard to argue against the benefits of an intake of fast absorbing carbohydrates post workout, be it Dextrose, maltodextrin or Waxy Maize Starch.

Out of curiosity, for which goals would you suggest that you would not be looking to intake a fast acting carbohydrate(such as dextrose) along with protein post workout?

Not all sugars are equal...fructose(sugar found in fruit) is much slower to digest, not the optimal choice for post workout recovery.

Thanks for your comment.

I have to agree. I buy myprotein whey ALOT but the recent batch of this Hurricane XS tasted absolutely disgusting and almost making me gag . Im not saying every flavorv is rank but my banana one is rancid . Will just stick to impact whey in future but Great deal if your taste bubs are not so fussy

Wow! This is epic. You must be in some shape!

Just got it. It's freaking awesome stuff. Tastes fab.
Thanks OP

my protein got some new offers. Pritty decent if you ask me [not as good as the $32 for 5kg, but still good].
Also if you are thinking of trying orange cream, i wouldn't recommend it. It's not to bad, but had better. It is pritty thick/creamy with a weak/medium orangish taste. So far the best one I have had is chocolate brownie... nice :]
