HBCD, also known as Highly Branched Cluster Dextrin, is a high-class performance carbohydrate that is taking the sports nutrition world by storm.
Manufactured in Japan, HBCD is produced using a unique enzyme, that forms a cluster structure unit degraded from starch. In short, the process ensures that HBCD is superior to other carbohydrates based on its better solubility, absorption rate, and ability to provide a constant flow of energy.
Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin provides a source of energy for the body. This has benefits before, during, and after exercise as higher energy levels enable us to train harder, for longer, and to recover faster.
All carbohydrates provide a source of energy through glycogen stores but HBCD is different - but in a good way! It is gradually degraded and absorbed into the bloodstream, ensuring that blood sugar levels remain constant.
