DGC (Dextrorotatory Glucose Crystals) is a unique glucose crystal that supplies an unmatched fuel source for fast and efficient muscle energy. DGC requires no digestion prior to absorption into the bloodstream. This means an ultra-fast fuel supply for supporting quick and sustained muscle energy requirements and mental function.
Glucose fuels muscle action. Muscle gets the glucose it requires for energy from what is circulating in your bloodstream. There are only about 6 grams of circulating glucose. This lasts approximately 15 minutes. Once depleted, glucose is then supplied from storage in the liver.
DGC to the Rescue
New and improved DGC™ delivers a precision carbohydrate, electrolyte, vitamin and mineral matrix that ensures a higher and faster rate of carbohydrate transport and energy utilization during exercise. By incorporating three separate carbohydrate transport mechanisms (SGLT1 transporter, GLUT-5 transporter, and the monosaccharide transport system), DGC™ delivers more energy to your working muscles1,2,3,4 to fuel ultra-intense workouts, provide rapid whole body and muscle cell hydration5 and support key anabolic activities for maximum muscular performance. And new DGC™ delivers this energy to your muscles faster than conventional carb sources while preserving ever critical muscle glycogen levels!6*DGC™ is an innovative performance supplement that will add a new dimension to your training.
Recommended Use: For best results take DGC™ before, during, and after training or athletic event. DGC™ can be added to VP2™ Whey Isolate or other protein shakes to create a high energy protein source. It can be mixed in water, juices or even sports drinks for a rapid and efficient energizing effect allowing you to train and compete harder and maintain peak performance levels for longer periods of time.*
DGC gives your muscles the energy they need to perform with 100% effort and intensity.
