DGC is a unique glucose crystal that supplies the perfect fuel for muscle action, workout performance, and recovery. Most bodybuilders don’t realize that just 3 maximum effort sets can deplete muscle glycogen stores by 60%. So literally, 10 minutes into your workout, your muscle glycogen stores are 40% of what they should be. And exercise-induced muscle damage impairs glucose uptake into muscle.
So if the lean mass gains aren’t happening as you’d like, it could be due to not enough quality fuel being deposited in muscle. This is why DGC supplementation is so important. I strongly recommend adding 1 scoop of DGC to any liquid meal to boost carbohydrate content.
How to Take DGC
From a timing perspective, here’s how you can take DGC to optimize the anabolic response from training. Take 1 scoop of DGC with VP2 Whey Isolate just before a workout. Take another full scoop of DGC with VP2 immediately after your workout. DGC can be mixed in with water, juice or any liquid for a potent, energy-rich muscle fuel source.
DGC is 25% less sweet than table sugar, so it will not overly sweeten other supplements. Also, the unique dextrorotatory glucose crystal in DGC requires no digestion prior to absorption into the bloodstream. This means you get an ultra-fast fuel supply for supporting quick and sustained muscle energy requirements and mental function.
As you can see, DGC is very effective for restoring depleted glycogen to your muscles. This is critically important for fueling your workouts and very important for activating protein synthesis after your workouts.
