Nth Degree - Low Glycemic Performance Drink RTD Lemon Citrus - 20 oz. (591 mL)
Nth Degree Low Glycemic Performance Drink is a Low Glycemic Index Tested contains electrolytes and B vitamins. Nth Degree features palatinose the "next generation sugar." What makes Palatinose (generic name Isomaltulose) different from higher glycemic index sweeteners?
- Palatinose is fully but more slowly digested, so it supplies the body with the full energy of carbohydrates over a longer period of time.
- Provides a more balanced glucose supply.
- As a low glycemic index carbohydrate, it has a lower effect on already normal blood glucose levels than higher glycemic index sweeteners.
- Palatinose supports fat oxidation (fat burning) during physical activity.
Nth Degree is fortified with B vitamins and a balance of the following electrolytes:
- Sodium --- 275mg
- Potassium --- 250mg
- Magnesium --- 40mg
- Calcium --- 80mg
Whatever your game... take it to the Nth Degree.
Nth Degree Performance drink - features palatinose
Most popular sports drinks contain higher glycemic index carbohydrates like high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin, glucose and sucrose. These types of carbohydrates are "fast" and enter the bloodstream quickly. The athlete potentially could tire sooner. Performance levels could drop, and recovery times can increase.
Palatinose - Performance Perfected
WHAT MAKES PALATINOSE (ISOMALATULOSE) DIFFERENT FROM HIGH GLYCEMIC INDEX SWEETENERS?
- It’s fully, but more slowly digested, so it supplies the body with the full energy of carbohydrates over a longer period of time
- It provides a more balanced glucose supply
- As a low glycemic index carbohydrate, it has a lower effect on already normal blood glucose levels
INDEPENDANT SPORTS MEDICINE STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT THE PALATINOSE IN NTH DEGREE.
- Promotes the body’s own fat oxidation during physical activity/exercise
- Increases the ratio of energy derived from fat relative to the total amount of energy required while being active
- Allows carbohydrate storage (glycogen) to be available for athletes longer and therefore may enhance endurance
What is the Glycemic Index?
The Glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of the carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid level in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because the help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance.
Recent studies from Harvard school of Public Health indicate that the risks of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease are strongly related to the GI of the overall diet. IN 1999, the World Health organization (WHO) and food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recommended that people in industrialized countries base their diets on low GI foods in order to prevent the most common diseases of affluence, such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Independent sports medicine studies have shown that the Palatinose in Nth Degree Low GI Performance Drink promotes the body’s own fat oxidation during physical activity/exercise, increases the ratio of energy derived from fat relative to the total amount of energy required while being active and allows carbohydrate storage (glycogen) to be available for athletes longer and therefore may enhance endurance.
