The consumption of nutrients immediately post-workout is absolutely essential. It helps the body recover from a grueling workout, replenish glycogen stores, repair muscle tissue, reduces post-workout soreness, raises testosterone and growth hormone levels, and reduces cortisol levels.
The role of post-workout carbohydrates is to replenish glycogen stores in the muscles and induce an insulin spike. High-glycemic carbs are optimal post-workout because they are absorbed quickly and raise blood sugar levels (insulin spike). The 3 main sources of post-workout carbohydrates are waxy maize starch, dextrose and maltodextrin.
