The Protein Works™
About this product
Maltodextrin Powder from The Protein Works is a complex carbohydrate that is rapidly absorbed by the body to provide an immediate release of energy. As a high GI carbohydrate, Maltodextrin is mainly used by athletes post workout to help kick-start and enhance the recovery process. Maltodextrin is ideal whenever a fast source of energy is required by the body as it can be quickly broken down and absorbed by the body. Research has suggested that consuming your normal protein shake with added carbohydrate powders such as Maltodextrin improves protein synthesis beyond that of just protein on its own. Protein synthesis is basically the process by which the body uses protein to help the muscles repair and regrow bigger. Maltodextrin helps the protein and amino acids shuttle to the muscles.
