Glyco-Gen Energy Shakes contain the perfect canine carbohydrate plus protein. By using a specific type of carbohydrate called maltodextrin, Glyco-Gen Energy Shakes are able to replenish the canine athlete�s glycogen stores in the muscle when it is needed most�within 30 minutes of exercise.
The maltodextrin in Glyco-Gen Shakes is rapidly absorbed without drawing water into the gut, thereby avoiding gastric upset and the potential fluid imbalance that can lead to dehydration. Once in the bloodstream, maltodextrin is readily utilized by the GLUT4 pathway without the release of insulin and is transported into muscle cells where it is stored as glycogen. The added protein in Glyco-Gen Shakes improves the muscle uptake and storage of maltodextrin. In addition, the protein provides essential building blocks necessary for muscle repair resulting in healthy muscles with a good energy store!
Using Glyco-Gen Energy Products
Before exercise: Give a half dose 15-30 minutes before exercise. This will provide a readily available source of carbohydrate for the dog to use before using stored carbohydrates thereby increasing the total carbohydrates available. If using the Glyco-Gen in this manner, be sure to use the lowest volume of water necessary. Be sure to follow with a full dose after the exercise for the best results.
After exercise: Give 1 scoop (= 1 TBSP) per 10# dog weight within 30 minutes of exercise. A second dose 45-60 later may provide additional benefit to a very exhausted dog. Be sure to allow the dog to rest (no vigorous exercise) for at least 2 hours for best results.
During exercise: Give half doses every 45-90 minutes during long or strenuous exercise to slow depletion of glycogen from the muscles. If using the Glyco-Gen Shake mix in this manner, be sure to use the lowest volume of water necessary. Be sure to follow with a full dose after exercise for the best results.
