What is Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin?

Highly branched cyclic dextrin, is sometimes referred to as cluster dextrin, and is considered to be a very potent and powerful carbohydrate that is proving highly beneficial to the sports and fitness communities. HBCD is produced via cutting edge processes, in which a specialist enzyme is added, allowing the molecules to form cluster-like structures from the starches. This in turn basically means that the dextrin is more soluble and is therefore easier to be absorbed by the body. Because if this, it is considered to be a superior carbohydrate source that has been proven to help increase energy levels, without causing spikes in insulin and/or blood glucose levels in general.

How does it work?

As you can now see, HBCD is a supplement designed to provide slow and sustained releases of energy in the body, that in turn will allow you to exercise and workout for longer durations of time before you begin to fatigue. Whereas all forms of carbohydrates provide energy for the body, HBCD is different, due to its molecular structure, which in turn allows it to provide a gradual release of energy into the bloodstream, which helps to keep blood sugar levels and insulin levels under control. Constant and stable blood glucose levels are very important, not only for athletic purposes, but also for health purposes in general. By having a constant supply of energy, the body can perform more efficiently, it can function healthier, and you will be more productive and will get more done.

What are some of the main benefits of Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin supplements?

Some of the main benefits of HBCD include:

Increased energy levels

We’ve all had days where we constantly feel tired and we just can’t seem to get motivated, no matter how hard we try. In the gym, this can be a real drag, but thanks to highly branched cyclic dextrin, this needn’t be an issue. The supplement provides a gradual and steady stream of carbohydrates for the body, which help keep it ticking over and helps keep your energy levels sky high.

Stable blood sugar levels

If we consume too many simple carbohydrate sources, this can lead to unstable blood sugar levels, and unstable insulin levels as well. Overtime, this could increase your risk of type-2 diabetes, or at the very least, it could reduce your body’s insulin sensitivity rates. HBCD however, is designed to gradually provide streams of carbohydrates for the body, helping to keep insulin levels and blood glucose levels, under control and natural.

Great pre and intra-workout supplement

If you’re looking for a supplement that will help provide you with plenty of energy and stamina, without overloading you with stimulants such as caffeine, HBCD is perfect. Most users will begin sipping it before they train, and will continue to sip it during their workouts.

    How and when should it be consumed?

    Mix 1 scoop in 12-16 floz of your favourite drink.

    Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin VS Waxy Maize

    Waxy maize starch is another form of carbohydrate that is often compared to HBCD, despite the fact that they are very different. Waxy maize is free from lactose and sugar and is actually absorbed much quicker than HBCD. This is not necessarily a good or bad thing, as it depends on what you are looking to get out of your training. For sustained energy levels, HBCD is better, whereas for a faster absorption rate, waxy maize is better.

    What can it be stacked with?

    HBCD is often stacked with Creatine Monohydrate, BCAAs, Whey Protein, and L-Glutamine. It is ideal, not only for people looking to build muscle, but also for people generally looking to improve their athletic performance in the process.
