Strength Series Carb Powder is the evolution of carbohydrate supplements, featuring 25 g of patented Cluster Dextrin (highly branched cyclic dextrin) in every serving. This is not your traditional glucose-loaded sports beverage that leaves your stomach in knots. In contrast to low molecular weight carbohydrates like dextrose, Cluster Dextrin is a novel highly branched, high-molecular-weight carbohydrate derived from amylopectin. The unique chemical characteristics of Cluster Dextrin allow it to be rapidly absorbed into the intestines instead of spiking your insulin levels and wreaking havoc on your stomach.
Cluster Dextrin serves as the ideal source of sustained-release carbohydrates that are easily digestible and have minimal impact on insulin secretion. We also recommend using TL Carb Powder immediately before training for fueling your workouts and augmenting athletic performance; after training, consume TL Carb Powder in conjunction with TL Protein Powder to ignite the recovery process and pack on lean muscle mass. Cluster Dextrin in TL Carb Powder mixes easily in virtually all liquids and has a neutral, mildly sweet taste (unflavored version).

Fast-acting carbohydrates like dextrose and sucrose result in a rapid spike in blood sugar levels and delayed gastric emptying (1). This can lead to that “heavy stomach” feeling and a short burst in energy followed by crashing. Obviously, that’s not what you want before hitting the gym or whenever you need to perform your best athletically. Due to its high overall molecular weight and helical structure in solution, Cluster Dextrin is rapidly emptied from the stomach into the intestines, making it more suitable for athletes and gym-goers who want an easily digestible source of lasting energy (2).
Clinical studies of elite athletes and healthy adult volunteers have shown that cyclic dextrin significantly increases peak performance capacity and reduces rates of perceived exertion (RPE) during exercise, whereas glucose-containing sports beverages were no more effective than plain water (3, 4). In addition, supplementing with cyclic dextrin after training helps quickly replenish muscle glycogen and create a more anabolic environment for maximal recovery, especially when combined with a quality protein source like grass-fed whey isolate (5, 6).
