Can you add sugar to pre and post workout protein shakes or does it have to be dextrose?
Is there an advantage to using dextrose?
My understanding is that dextose is a less complex molecule than regular sugar, broken down & digested quicker. It is also less sweet than refined sugar. And cheaper.
dextrose will replete glycogen stores in the muscles.. sucrose (table sugar) is a mixture of fructose and dextrose... some goes to refill muscle glycogen, the other liver glycogen.
Thanks for the info, guys .
