I am a big time nerd when it comes to physiology, especially exercise phys. related material. First Endurance has a lot of really awesome scientific articles they publish that pique(thanks to Wordnerd for the correction) my interest. Some of their products work for me, some of them don’t… but I really like their effort to educate their clientelle, or anyone who might be interested.
Click here for a very detailed, informative article on the use of carbohydrates during exercise. I like this article because it seems to be mostly unbiased and is not an outright sell saying, “USE THIS PRODUCT”, plus it is backed up by a ton of different research sources. The engineering side of me likes that. I know you can’t believe everything you read, but I liked reading it!
the articles pique your interest.
darn science majors. 😉
I especially liked the “depletion of these carbohydrates during exercise leads to bonking” line. Everything else is so scientific and precise . . . but anybody who’s going to read that knows exactly what they’re talking about
Excellent article. In a world of “carbs are bad” it is nice to read something with useful and scientifically based advice. I just went out and bought some new sports drink, and I made sure it had Maltodextrin in it. Mmmm maltodextrin.
