If you are an athlete, the importance of carbohydrates cannot be understated and without carbohydrates, your performance suffers. With so many workout and sports supplements available in the market, one of the relatively new entrants in the sports nutrition universe is Cluster Dextrin® or highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD), which is a new form of carbohydrate that is extremely beneficial for fitness and sports enthusiasts.
Cluster Dextrin® or HBCD is a new advanced type of maltodextrin that is synthesized when sugar molecule clusters are formed when starch (amylopectin) is broken down by using a specialist enzyme. Cluster Dextrin® is more soluble and is absorbed more easily by the body than any other carbohydrate source. HBCD is considered a far superior source of carbs compared to other types of carbohydrates as it provides a sustained increase in energy levels without causing spikes in the blood glucose and/or insulin levels.
