Unipro - Carboplex - 2lbs 8.8 oz. (1145 g)
High carbohydrate intake may provide a signifigant positive effect on athletic performance. When compared to a normal diet or high fat diet, a high carbohydrate diet supports increased muscle glycogen storage and significantly greater endurance. (Glycogen is the major storage form of fuel in muscle.)
Carboplex is an excellent source of long-chain glucose polymers. Essentially tasteless (except for a pleasant, subtle sweetness). Carboplex provides a source of quick energy without the negative effects associated with simple carbohydrates (sucrose or dextrose). Carboplex is derived exclusively from whole grain (corn) and is prepared through a natural acid-enzyme process.
Ideal for strength-training and endurance athletes. Carboplex provides a source of sustained energy that is unlikely to cause intestinal upset, nausea or compromise fluid balance. Carboplex has become the favorite of athletes who depend upon carbohydrate loading for a competitive edge.
Orange Carboplex is a blend of the same high quality glucose polymers found in Carboplex with the addition of pure crystalline fructose, an additional source of energy. Orange Carboplex delivers a valuable energy source without compromising fluid balance. Orange Carboplex may support muscle glycogen levels by providing a source of carbohydrates for carbohydrate loading.
Unipro: Better Quality Means Better Results
Doctors and patients have thousands of nutritional supplements to choose from—with a wide variation in quality and price. They focus on improving people's health—not just selling pills. Their top priority is to make products that work. Because no matter how much you pay for a product, it's too expensive if it doesn't work.
It's rare for a professional nutritional product company to devote the scientific staff, labs, equipment, time, resources, and strict procedures necessary to achieve true quality status. They can't imagine it any other way—people's health may depend on it. They Measure Up to All 5 Quality Standards—and Beyond. They are the only nutritional company selling to health care professionals that strictly adheres to the 5 most identifiable standards for quality.
- GMP-certified manufacturing—the ultimate quality marker.
If it's on the label, it's in the bottle—guaranteed. Their manufacturing facility is certified for good manufacturing practices (GMP) by the Natural Products Association (NPA), National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA) to ensure the highest quality standards. It's a sure way to know you're getting exactly what you pay for. No other professional supplement company has all 3 of these certifications. Many don't even have one.
- Pure ingredients—identity tested on multiple levels.
They accept nothing less than the best they can find. They quarantine each raw material then test each thoroughly to support quality, safety, and efficacy. On formulas requiring especially sensitive or perishable ingredients, they conduct additional testing—above and beyond the testing required of us by the Food and Drug Administration current good manufacturing practices, or cGMPs. A batch of each final product is then tested again for purity as an added safety measure and confirmation of quality. Their attention to detail here is unmatched in their industry.
- Safety-reviewed ingredients—they won't create a formula without them.
They don't even think of using an ingredient in a formula without a thorough literature search on its predicted safety in use as a nutritional supplement. They have an onsite research staff and medical information center with access to thousands of peer-reviewed scientific publications. They review published studies and articles on every new natural ingredient they consider using in their products. It's an added assurance for products you can trust.
- Human clinical evaluations—the surest way to show effectiveness.
The best way to test effectiveness and safety of a nutritional product is to see how it works with real patients. The Functional Medicine Research Center? (FMRC)—the clinical research arm of Metagenics—is an on-site clinic staffed by medical professionals who recommend their nutritional approaches and monitor their success. The FMRC also conducts clinical trials that have been published in respected peer-reviewed journals. No other company in their market segment can offer this kind of first-hand knowledge that can only be achieved a clinical setting.
- Scientific staff and facilities—the best in their business.
Not every professional nutrition company has its own staff of dedicated medical and technical professionals. They have one of the largest in-house scientific staffs—MDs, PhDs, and others—in their industry segment. Plus they have some of the industry's most progressive research facilities and labs, such as their MetaProteomics labs for testing the effects of nutrients on proteins and genetic expression. It's easy to see why so many health care professionals and their patients rely on their products.
Added Measures to Maximize Effectiveness & Value Going above and beyond is just routine for us. Here are just a few more examples:
- Appropriate ingredient form & dose—so you can be sure.
Their goal is to use highly absorbable nutrient forms so the body has a greater chance of using it the way it should to promote health. This is particularly important with certain key nutrients that may be poorly absorbed, or for people who have absorption concerns. And the dosages they recommend are based on scientific research that document effectiveness and predicted safety when used as intended.
- The right delivery form—to meet the demands of patients and appropriate to the ingredients.
They don't have a "one form fits all" policy. Not every ingredient should be made into a tablet or a capsule. So the ingredients often decide the delivery form for each product—tablet, chewable, liquid, capsule, softgel, soft chew, bar, or powder.
And a product can't work if people won't take it. So they also consider what people prefer. That's why they offer many of their products in a variety of forms and flavors.
- Tablets made for ultimate performance—for better results.
Nobody pays more attention to tablets than they do. Their tableting technology makes sure they disintegrate within a short time, to release ingredients for optimal absorption.
And they don't stop testing even after they create the final formula. Every product batch is tested to make sure their high tablet standards are met.
