Dextrose, or glucose as it's also known, is a monosaccharide that is approximately 30% less sweet than pure or refined cane sugar, and is not associated with either fructose or lactose. It is derived entirely from corn, making it natural, effective, and easily utilized by the body. Its fine texture and moderate sweetness make dextrose versatile for a wide range of applications. However, it offers an especially important effect for athletes. As a simple sugar, it is well-tolerated by most individuals with healthy blood sugar levels, and can be consumed before, during, and after the most intense training sessions.
From an athletic performance perspective, dextrose can help ensure that hard-worked muscles are not deprived the protein and nutrients they need to recover, repair, and replenish. Dextrose has a high glycemic index (GI) rating which allows it to enter the bloodstream very quickly. This action stimulates a powerful and almost instantaneous insulin response. Insulin is a natural hormone with strong anabolic properties that helps drive nutrients into the cells of hungry muscle fibers, such as creatine monohydrate, beta-alanine, L-arginine, L-carnitine and others. NOW Dextrose is 100% pure and manufactured under NOW's strict quality standards.
As a dietary supplement mix 2 level tablespoons of Dextrose Powder in 16 oz of water or juice. Consume before, during and after intense exercise for best results. Double this recipe if engaging in prolonged exertion of 2 hours or more. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Whey Protein Isolate, Pyruvate and Creatine.

For the past few years I'd been trying to develop my upper body - not to get huge and beefy - all I was asking for was a little more muscle. My efforts were fruitless until I learned that, in addition to protein, simple carbs are also important post-workout. So I started taking this just over the past week and I can already feel and see the difference.
Affordable and great

Instead of using this for energy before a workout, I take it after my workout together with whey protein. Works well for me

I use this in place of table sugar for smoothies and other foods.
Use dextrose instead of sugar or fructose

Fructose is processed in the liver and then turns into fat as well as being harmful to your heart. Sugar is a chemical combination of dextrose and fructose therefore it is not quite as bad as high fructose corn syrup which is found in most processed foods. Dextrose is not as sweet as sugar therefore you need to use about 50% more.

I enjoy being able to adjust the sweetness and control the caloric content of my pre/during/after workout protein shakes. I am extremely happy with your product. Not only does it do the job but in this quantity it will last a long time. I don't like commercially prepared protein shakes because they are too sweet and have too many calories per serving. In addition I received my order in just a few days after I placed it! You've got a customer for life1
