Metabolic Nutrition’s GlycoLoad, is a scientifically developed carbohydrate supplement which specifically targets Glycogen production in the body, giving you the ability to properly “carb-load” your muscles without the negative side effects of carbohydrate/sugar intake turning to unwanted body fat.† Glycogen is the key form of energy storage in your body and is critical to fuel ATP for muscular contraction, blood vessel dilation, increased vascularity, and for hydrating muscles…giving you a lean, hard, more defined look that all athletes aspire to obtain. Carb-Loading has been practiced by athletes for decades, but even complex training methods and diets have often failed due to the inability to properly absorb & store the rapid high dose of fast sugars that are often consumed.
GLYCOLOAD IS ENGINEERED TO BOOST THE FOLLOWING
- Strength Training
- Endurance Training
- High Intensity Training
- Facilitate Faster Recovery
Unlike multi-carbohydrate powders which function uncontrollably in the body, GlycoLoad’s uniquely developed single high-molecular weight; low osmolality carbohydrate was specifically designed to function in only one way…to load glycogen into the muscles.† The unique carbohydrate structure found in GlycoLoad, does not process through stomach-digestion like regular carbohydrates, rather it enters the lower GI track (small intestine) for slow assimilation into the blood stream.† This steady absorption optimizes insulin levels, allowing more GlycoLoad to enter the blood stream for higher conversion to Glycogen in the muscles.† More Glycogen in the body leads to increased muscle size, endurance and strength…not to mention the improved muscle recovery after long strenuous exercise.† GlycoLoad is further strengthened by unique peptide-bonded glycogen promoting pharmaceutical amino acids, powerful antioxidants, critical electrolytes and insulin mimicking pre-cursers. The addition of these specific ingredients insure that every gram of carbohydrate in GlycoLoad is effectively absorbed for prolonged workout energy, maximal recovery and rapid glycogen replenishment.† The best part, GlycoLoad’s powerful, small-dose format is easier to mix and digest, eliminating gas, cramping and bloating†, making it perfect for the beginner to the advanced user.
GlycoLoad provides everything you need to make the most out of your workouts with several great tasting and easy to mix flavors that will have your taste buds craving it again and again. GlycoLoad also comes in an unflavored version, so you can add it to your favorite pre-workout or protein supplement.
What is GlycoLoad?
GlycoLoad is a single high molecular weight, low osmolality carbohydrate that specifically targets Glycogen production in the body, giving you the ability to properly “carb-load” your muscles without the negative side effects of carbohydrate/sugar intake turning to unwanted body fat.†
How does GlycoLoad work?
GlycoLoad uses a highly branched cyclic dextrin which is formed by using a branching enzyme on specific amylopectin starches to form complex, high molecular weight structures. It has long glycosidal chains making it digestive acid resistance while maintaining its high energy value. This high molecular weight, low osmolality ingredient makes it highly soluble in liquid while allowing it to bypass the stomach reducing gastric issues typically found in complex carb products. Thus, GlycoLoad enters the bloodstream and target tissues providing a long term source of carbohydrate energy which is perfect for high intensity exercise.†
The addition of rapid absorbing ingredients (amino acids) in GlycoLoad help to increase the muscle’s ability to rebuild faster and continue to build long after your training session. When using GlycoLoad, you will notice increased energy and strength throughout your day, which helps maintain power and strength, allowing you to work harder and stronger all the way through your workouts. In addition, for those who exercise at extreme intensities wearing down glycogen stores, GlycoLoad will help maintain and replenish those levels. GlycoLoad can be taken anytime of the day, but may have a more powerful effect if consumed immediately following exercise.†
What kind of results can I expect from using GlycoLoad?
Immediately during exercise, you should have more energy for greater workout capacity. Over time, you should expect to have more endurance, greater overall strength, less post-exercise soreness, and denser, harder lean muscle within a few weeks of use. In addition, you may experience muscle pumps and harder muscles during your workouts.†
What's inside GlycoLoad?
The combined ingredients within GlycoLoad utilize a no fast-sugar complex carb approach to provide energy, muscle-building, and general health properties through its use of its highly effective microcrystalline, high molecular weight, low osmolality structure, along with key amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.† Specific forms of fast absorbing, electrolytes helps penetrate the muscle providing hydration and energy. In all, GlycoLoad has taken all the aspects of complex carb, glycogen loading dilemmas, conquered them, and combined specific ingredients in to one powerful glycogen-enhancing product.
Why Is There No Sugar?
According to the FDA, sugars are considered those with high glycemic activity or fast single molecule breakdown processes. In truth, all carbohydrates come from sugar or a sugar source, but are classified by their chains of the various sugar molecules and their relative size or complexity. Thus, GlycoLoad is not calorie free, however, it is suitable for low carb diets, those with fast-sugar restrictions, and those trying to get more calories without turning sugar to fat rapidly.†
What are the benefits of the added vitamins and minerals?
The idea behind formulating GlycoLoad with additional vitamins and minerals was two-fold. First, fortifying carbohydrate with essential energy -enhancing vitamins and minerals help to improve overall function and absorption of key nutrients that help with muscle building.† Secondly, the added nutrients provide better overall health gains and reduces the need to consume additional vitamins and minerals depending on your health and fitness goals.
Why is GlycoLoad better than other complex carbohydrate products?
Most carb products use a variety of carbs including those which are faster acting, even when considered complex. GlycoLoad Clustered Dextrin from natural Amylopectin sources means that you get the good carb effect due to its chemical structures previously described. Unlike other carbs that either clump, are too sweet, require too much, or cause gastric issues, the specific nature of GlycoLoad ensures less cramping and more bioavailability. This means you can take less and get more out of it.† GlycoLoad doesn’t have that thick shake-like feel to it, so it is perfect on hot days, or for those who want quick and easy mixing and it comes in several flavors so that it can be consumed on its own or stacked with other products.
Many carb products cause weight gain due to the high carb load without being able to utilize it all. But even more so, GlycoLoad adds key amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to the mix so that you get more than just a glycogen loading or energy fulfilling effect, but you gain the advantage of back-side recovery! Our unique formulation allows just about anyone to use GlycoLoad whether looking for huge mass or just a little additional lean muscle. And finally, GlycoLoad has a dosed-response scoop and serving size suggestion which means you can dial in the exact amount you need based on your energy levels, the other products you stack, and your body size, for maximal results.†
How do I take GlycoLoad for optimal results?
For optimal results, take GlycoLoad within 45-30 minutes before you exercise and/or immediately following exercise. Since absorption and utilization of ingredients varies per individual, keep track of your energy during your workout and your recovery and muscle soreness post workout and then consume according to your needs. GlycoLoad can be stacked with Tri-Pep, TAG, CGP, or other Metabolic Nutrition products depending on your overall fitness goals.
Do I need to "load" or "cycle" GlycoLoad?
You do not need to load or cycle GlycoLoad, simply use it any time of the day, especially before and after your workout. Also GlycoLoad is a great meal replacement or additive to a protein shake. While GlycoLoad does not contain any ingredients that would alter your body’s ability to function normally, it is always advised to take a week or two off from supplements every 12 to 16 weeks just to allow your body a chance to reset itself.
Is GlycoLoad Safe To Take Every Day?
Yes, GlycoLoad is absolutely safe to take every day. There is no established limit to the amount of carbohydrates you can safely take daily, although the FDA does recommend not over-consuming carbohydrates as part of their daily 2000 calorie suggestion.
Can I take GlycoLoad even when I am not training?
Yes, you can take GlycoLoad on off days and even if you are not training. GlycoLoad still supports a healthy lifestyle and offers health benefits to all individuals, including those on restricted carbohydrate diets.†
Can I take GlycoLoad with other products?
You can take GlycoLoad with other Metabolic Nutrition products including CGP, TAG, Tri-Pep, MuscLean and Protizyme as well as our fat burners such as Synedrex. Additionally, you can use our pre-workouts such as ESP and PSP. Maximal dosing of GlycoLoad is designed for experience lifters and endurance athletes, however, there is no upper tolerable limitation when it comes to carbohydrate loading.
Are there any known side effects when using GlycoLoad?
All of the ingredients in GlycoLoad have been pre-screened prior to formulation and are generally recognized as safe. However, in some cases, with any supplement, some persons do experience specific allergic reactions. While there have been no reports of these incidences with the use of GlycoLoad, if this occurs, discontinue use and see if the symptoms disappear, otherwise consult a physician. Like all supplements, you should consult your physician prior to using GlycoLoad as well as read and understand the entire label to make sure that you are not allergic to or intolerant to specific ingredients.†
Why should I use GlycoLoad?
If you want to build larger, more defined muscle and improve overall recovery time, then GlycoLoad, when dosed properly, can take your training up several notches. Those looking to have more energy for their endurance activities and get more out of their muscle-building workouts by being able to train harder and longer, will find GlycoLoad will deliver on demand, rapidly, and for prolonged periods.
Who should use GlycoLoad?
GlycoLoad is great for anyone looking to build more dense muscle or to have greater energy during and after their workouts. GlycoLoad is perfect for more advanced trainees who are familiar with glycogen loading. At maximal dosage, it is specifically designed to help enhance muscle glycogen replenishment from exhaustive long duration, high-intensity workouts.† While GlycoLoad is a safe and effective, children should not consume GlycoLoad, nor should pregnant women or persons with existing health conditions without consulting a physician prior to use. All persons, should assess their own tolerance and allergies before using any product.
Can women use GlycoLoad?
Absolutely. Since GlycoLoad has recommended scoop suggestions allowing users to dose accordingly, smaller or larger persons can find their suitable dose. The ingredients within GlycoLoad do not specifically address male or female issues thus making it perfect for both sexes.
What does GlycoLoad taste like?
GlycoLoad comes in 6 incredible flavors as well as a 7th unflavored variety so you can drink it alone or combine with almost any product.
Why do we use Sucralose instead of other sweeteners?
Sucralose is used as a sweetener due to its high impact sweetness factor. In GlycoLoad, we use very little as the natural flavor of our specialized carbohydrate can stand on its own. Sucralose allows us to use significantly less of this sweetener than other comparable sweeteners. Metabolic Nutrition also develops it own flavor system for its products so we were able to use even significantly less Sucralose than other companies and still derive a very “natural” taste characteristic. Based on this we use 1/1000 less sweetener than other comparable formulas. As compared to other natural sweeteners, such as Stevia, we would have had to use upwards of 10,000x the amount of Stevia to produce the same sweetness level and that would have come at a cost in terms of price of product (higher), bad or chemical off notes, and significant digestive issues.
Is there any additional sweetener in the unflavored GlycoLoad?
No, the specific structure of the cluster dextrin has an inherent “sweet” taste. But not all carbohydrates are created equal when it comes to taste, and thus our specific carbohydrate has been selected because of its inherent abilities in both performance and taste.
Are there any scientific studies to support GlycoLoad?
There are several studies supporting each of the ingredients in GlycoLoad as well as studies showing the effects of combining several ingredients. The scientific team at Metabolic Nutrition is constantly testing ingredients and analyzing research, as well, each product is fully tested using trial groups to ascertain efficacy and potency of the end product. All products are batch tested, and follow GMP guidelines both in the developing and manufacturing processes.
The recommended dose for GlycoLoad is one to three scoops depending on your training and dietary goals. Depending on your goal, it can be used a low-calorie carb complex for high protein diets or as part of your pre-workout stack. GlycoLoad has no stimulants nor any ingredients where maximal dosing can limit consumption – you can use GlycoLoad anytime all day long to provide increased energy and enhanced recovery. Additionally, GlycoLoad can be stacked with other Metabolic Nutrition products.*
