What is True Cyclic Dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®)?

True Highly branched cyclic dextrin (Cluster Dextrin®) is a cutting edge, ultra pure carbohydrate that is sourced from Japan. It is produced through an advanced process involving the breakdown of starch. Cluster Dextrin® differs from other high GI carbohydrates like Dextrose and Maltodextrin as it provides a sustained release of energy as opposed to sudden spike in blood sugar and large insulin response. These excellent properties, along with it's superb water solubility makes Cluster Dextrin® an ideal intra-workout carbohydrate.

Having high blood sugar can lead to a whole host of negative effects so being able to consume an energy source especially before and during training that will cause a blood sugar spike is highly beneficial.
