Product Overview

Dextrose

  • Quick energy fuel*
  • No aspartame, sucralose or acesulfame-k
  • Gluten free, non-GMO and diary free

Dextrose, or glucose as it's also known, is a monosaccharide that is approximately 30% less sweet than pure or refined cane sugar, and is not associated with either fructose or lactose. It is derived entirely from corn, making it natural, effective, and easily utilized by the body. Its fine texture and moderate sweetness make dextrose versatile for a wide range of applications. However, it offers an especially important effect for athletes. As a simple sugar, it is well-tolerated by most individuals, and can be consumed before, during and after the most intense training sessions.

From an athletic performance perspective, dextrose can help ensure that hard-worked muscles are not deprived the protein and nutrients they need to recover, repair and replenish.* Dextrose has a high glycemic index (GI) rating which allows it to enter the bloodstream very quickly.* This action stimulates a powerful and almost instantaneous insulin response.* Insulin is a natural hormone with strong anabolic properties that helps drive nutrients into the cells of hungry muscle fibers, such as creatine monohydrate, beta-alanine, L-arginine, L-carnitine and others. NOW Dextrose Powder is 100% pure and manufactured under NOW's strict quality standards.

Extremely good bang for the buck when compared to the JYM competitor product. Only complaint is that it doesn’t come with a scoop (otherwise would have been 10/10). Not a big deterrent. Will definitely buy again.

Exactly as advertised. Quality dextrose powder - great to drink right before an early AM workout for fuel or to amplify your pump without having to spend an arm and a leg on useless N.O. products. Can't beat the price - a 10 lb. tub lasts me well over 11 months but I only use between 10-40 grams per serving.

I generally workout fasted in the morning after a 2 - 6 mile run. I decided to add this (about 40g) to a protein shake and drink it halfway through the weight training to see if it aids in recovery or fighting off fatigue. I think it gives a little extra "umpf!" to the workout. It certainly makes the protein shake a bit sweeter. This purchase is the first time I have used this, so I don't think the few weeks I have been on it are long enough to see any serious benefits or drawbacks. I am not sure if I would recommend everyone try it (because, as I said, I haven't seen any noticeable changes due to it yet). However, I plan on getting more and maintaining my current regimen to see if it helps me improve. If it does I will definitely post it here.

A great simple carb to put in a post workout shake. Its flavor is truly flavorless and even adds a little extra sweetness. The price is great for the amount of servings you get (compared to JYMs dextrose, EXPENSIVE). Highly suggested product right here if your looking for a insulin spike in the body to shuttle nutrients.

Basic ,simple, and effective carbohydrate for rapid glycogen replenishment during and post workout. I take 3 tablespoons of this directly after my workout mixed with my protein and post workout.

Dextrose is a great staple to any post workout shake, and you can't beat this price. My only complaint is that the product is advertised as coming in a jug, but it actually comes in a bag (which is sort of a hassle to close)

This is a MUST buy. I never realized how important carbs could be and how they can affect your physique until I heard of this. I add one or two tablespoons of this to my preworkout, and one to my BCAA's during workout and I get the absolute best pumps I've ever had. This gives your muscles a full, rounded and massive skin-bulging look, and assists greatly in getting creatine and other additives into your bloodstream much quicker and as a result, they are so much more effective. My energy levels are through the roof with this, I can move serious weight around the gym for two to three hours effortlessly. Ladies, add this to your regimen on legs and glutes day, this is what builds and shapes a big round apple bottom!

For those having intense lifting sessions or cardio sessions, this is an incredible product. I drink a small amount during my sessions to keep my energy/insulin levels up, and then mix it with my protein afterward. Protein synthesis happens much faster and I can tell simply because I didn't take this product during my 6 years of lifting until now. I've noticed a great change in my energy, recovery and build since adding this to my stack. Recommended!

Great simple product. Its works very well. I saw some big gains when I took it with my protein before and after the gym. Ignore everyone who says the bag cannot be resealed. It reseals just fine so long as you are gentle with it and don't get all roid rage on it.
