CarboPro 1200 provides a balanced combination of different carbohydrates and sodium and potassium, to open all the gates and pathways, to use all the transport mechanisms to quickly and consistently increase energy levels and keep it up there for FIVE to SIX hours of any strenuous endurance activity. During hours of long training or competition you need 200 to 300 calories per hour and you need electrolytes. Getting that fuel is now easy and simple -- all you need is a bottle of CarboPro 1200, which is the equivalent of eight bottles of other sports drinks or a dozen gels. There are SIX servings in a bottle, each serving worth 200 calories of pure energy. Each 80 mL / 2.6 fl oz serving provides 50 grams of carbohydrates (200 calories), plus 150 mg of Sodium & 100 mg of Potassium to replace electrolytes. Product information CarboPro 1200 is a balanced solution of four different forms of easily digestible and highly absorbable carbohydrates. CarboPro 1200 contains four different kinds of substrates (a substrate is a substance acted upon by a digestive enzyme) in a 16oz bottle - the equivalent of 8 bottles of other sports drinks or 12 gels. A solution with more substrates stimulates the activation of more transport mechanisms in the intestinal lumen than solutions with less substrates. Therefore, during the digestion process, more carbohydrates are transported out of the small intestine and are absorbed into the blood which, in turn, enhances a greater absorption rate of water (optimized hydration) into the bloodstream via osmosis. Thus, the higher activation rate of transport mechanisms by the four different types of carbohydrates in CarboPro 1200, in addition to the increased function of osmosis, facilitates faster energy release and increased hydration. What does this mean to you? In a few words, it's great for performance! Sugars that can be found in Carbo Pro 1200 are: Ribose: a five-carbon sugar (pentose) found primarily in ribonucleic acid; increases the rate at which ATP is generated, improves performance. Trehalose: a disaccharide, does not promote excessive insulin release; quick gastric emptying; sustained energy release; balances dehydration/reyhdration cycle; an antioxidant; is “toothfriendly.” Dextrose: a monosaccharide; identical to glucose found in blood; absorbed rapidly for surge of energy; quickly activates transport mechanism. Also in Carbo Pro 1200: CARBO-PRO: a patented, proprietary glucose polymer; polymerized to obtain optimal chain lengths for quick gastric emptying without excessive insulin release. Provides sustained energy release for longer periods; forms the base substrate for all the other carbs. SportQuest Direct has bottled the Frey-Huddle method Seven years ago Roch Frey and Paul Huddle (multisports.com) mixed a concentrated solution of CARBO-PRO to get at least 200 calories or 50 grams of carbs per hour. Since then many athletes have used their method: Peter Reid, Heather Fuhr, Nicole De Boom, Kate Major, Tim De Boom, Lori Bowden, Luke Bell, Paula Newby-Fraser, Chris Legh, Ferg Hawke, Robyn Benincasa (Team Merrell/Wigwam), Chris Lieto, Sean Welch, Michellie Jones, and others. time tested and proven method: You can now have the time-tested and proven method in a 16 oz bottle with 1,200 calories of great tasting liquid energy-electrolyte blend, with the proven and patented CARBO-PRO, fortified with Ribose, Trehalose, and Dextrose, with each form playing a timely role to quickly and consistently increase energy levels and keep it up there for FIVE to SIX hours of any strenuous endurance activity.
