Glucose or grape sugar is the only form of sugar that flows into the blood and thus enters the whole body and acts as a fast source of energy - "fuel for muscles and brain". Without glucose, the brain cannot function properly. Glucose is the only source of energy that nerve cells, neurons, can use. In order for the brain to do its best, it must have a constant blood supply with adequate glucose levels. If the body has enough or excess glucose, it begins to store it in the liver and muscles in the form of glycogen (muscle sugar). Glycogen is created by combining glucose molecules and serves as an "energy store" when the body needs it.
Glucose contributes to the restoration of normal muscle function after high-intensity or longlasting physical activity, which results in muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. We also recommend adding glucose to creatine, which increases creatine utilization by up to 40 %, creating a reaction in which creatine automatically reaches the target cell faster.
Glucose helps patients to overcome diseases and accelerates the recovery of an organism exhausted by sports, disease and work. Glucose is in calories as beet sugar, but has a lower sweetness, about 20 %. A teaspoon of glucose matches like 0.8 teaspoons of sugar.
- 100% D - glucose - also called grape sugar, dextrose or starch sugar, is a monosaccharide that is immediately absorbed into the blood without burdening the digestive system.
