Why use Dr Coy’s sugars during sports competition?
To ensure best performance, the body needs sugar as an energy supply to help delay the onset of fatigue.
Dr Coy’s sugars provide stable, long-lasting energy and avoid blood sugar levels spiking, or crashing.
What are the advantages of using isomaltulose, trehalose, ribose, galactose during competitions?
Energy Boost: Trehalose
Trehalose is a double sugar (disaccharide) composed of two glucose molecules. Trehalose is a valuable form of glucose for athletes because it provides a steady, optimal supply of energy. Trehalose is a naturally occurring sugar found in plants, fungi, bacteria, and insects. These organisms use trehalose to protect themselves from environmental conditions such as extreme heat or frost.
Metabolic Support: Isomaltulose
As a double sugar (disaccharide), isomaltulose consists of the same components as conventional household sugar – glucose and fructose – but has a lower glycaemic index which helps support a healthy metabolism. Isomaltulose enables a safe and extended delivery of energy to the body and protects teeth from decay. Isomaltulose is naturally found in honey.
DNA Builder: Ribose
Ribose is a simple sugar with a Glycaemic Index = 0 and is also gentle on the teeth. Ribose is an important sugar which forms the building blocks of DNA. It is naturally found in glucose and obtained from corn by fermentation.
Brain Fuel: Galactose
Galactose is a simple sugar with a low glycaemic index and low-calorie content. Galactose is naturally found in very small quantities in artichokes, mushrooms, papayas, and tomatoes. It is a natural component of milk sugar (lactose) therefore it is naturally found in fermented milk products such as kefir and buttermilk and even breast milk. However, unlike lactose, galactose can be tolerated by people with lactose intolerance.
Galactose forces the mitochondria to be active, which enhances an oxidative metabolism and increases fat burning. Galactose also helps make sure the brain gets enough energy to function properly, even when an insulin resistance is present, because galactose can be used by the brain without the need of insulin.
Galactose is an excellent source of energy and prevents a spike a blood sugar levels.
Sweet Mix for Sports Competition is suitable for diabetics and those with a lactose intolerance.
